Coffee Mug & Magazine Cake for my Alumni University

I have so many great memories from my University days at Wilfrid Laurier in Waterloo, Ontario.  I graduated about ... gulp... 15 years ago with a Business Degree.

I was honoured when they asked to interview me for their Alumni magazine.  I, of course, had to make them something sweet and special.  I made a magazine & coffee cup cake with a selection of cupcakes with assorted cake designs.
The article was a 5-page feature called: Starting from scratch:  Juanita Koo leaves the corporate world behind to fill her life with sweet things.   It was very weird to see myself in print.  Here is the Instagram-ized photo of one of the pages of the article (Page 16-20 if you want to read).
Here's another photo of the cakes - I had so much fun making them and everyone at the magazine was amazing to work with.   I'm so thankful!

wow..such beauties. I think I'd end up keeping the 'magazine' cake rather than eat it.

This is wonderful! What a fantastic job you did.
My nephew and his wife graduated from Laurier a few years ago (Business) and went on to get their CA accreditation. My niece is attending Laurier now and is in her 3rd year.
