K.K's 1st Annual Kupkake Kook Off!



For those of you who follow me regularly...Remember that my family and I lost our Aunt K.K. (Aunt Cake) last Spring...Today is her birthday! Happy Birthday, Aunt K.K.!









Her daughter, Heather has had such a hard time with the loss of her Momma...
So my sister, Cass, came up with a great way to celebrate her life by having an
annual cupcake decorating party..."K.K.'s Annual Kupkake Kook Off" on Facebook!







This is my "kupkake" for my Aunt K.K. (Aunt Cake)...The clocks symbolize how the time flew by...

The bird symbolizes how she is free now...The photos symbolizes how we are all connected and how we always have the memories....

The kupkake symbolizes how K.K. was our Fashionista...how she traveled the world and had so many wonderful experiences!

Paris symbolizes the trip her and her only daughter, Heather took to Paris just to shop!



My sister, Cass, out did herself! We now dub her our "Cake Bossette"...;) This is Dumbo! Amazing, huh? I don't think she has ever designed a cake before...So talented! She attached a song from Dumbo by Bette Midler..."Baby Of Mine"...:( I cried like a baby! So perfect! Thank you so much, Cass!








Heather and her kids made these sweet "kupkakes"! Such a sweet way to celebrate their "Grandma Bean's" life!




Though, not everyone baked a K.K. Kupkake on Facebook...Some family members changed their profile picture to a photo of Aunt Cake...some wrote beautiful memories that they shared with her...We all got together virtually to celebrate a beautiful woman, who is truly loved...

A few words from loved ones...

My Uncle Kelly wrote...
I have always walked the line between good and bad my KK walked with me not because she was bad but because she would not let her little brother walk alone. She always watched over me. I know God made a special place for her and now she walks with him. I will try hard to be a better person so if I’m lucky maybe I to will walk with them. Love you and miss you.
Aunt Linda wrote...I remember how much she loved Heather. And how she was Kelly, Sue's and Mary's best friend. How much she loved the kids- all of them. But mostly I remember her smile.

Her daughter, Heather wrote...One in particular though was when I had Zach and she came and stayed and helped with everything. Especially the cleaning.. So when we got home with Zach, It smelled of bleach so strong that we couldn't breathe. I remember growing up how spotless she was and meticulous of how she cleaned too. She was just wonderful in all aspects.. I miss her tremendously..... ♥ ♥

my sister, Kate said...We all miss you Aunt KK...Mom and Ralph are so blessed to be spending this day with you. Just know, we are all taking good care of Heather... she is our heart!





I love you, Cake...I hope you know how much you are loved and missed! And how you touched all of our lives with your presence...Happy Birthday!

I am so sorry for your loss. It seems so much harder on the anniversaries, doesn't it? I think is is lovely that your family is keeping her memory close and alive.
