The GOODS from Culinary Capers Catering

Vancouver, BC | CATIE Awards (Catered Arts Through Innovative Excellence) are presented by the International Caterers Association at the annual Catersource Conference, an international event held this year in New Orleans and attended by over 4,000 industry professionals. The awards recognize the achievements of caterers from around the world. Culinary Capers Catering and Special Events’ winning entries were for Best Celebration Cake and Best Tablescape Design.

The winning Chanel Cake was custom-designed by our pastry chef in collaboration with our company owner Debra Lykkemark, as a 40th birthday gift. The design really was inspired by the woman it was created for, a woman who is elegant, stylish, and classic. The top tier of the cake was wrapped in the Chanel signature, the quilted diamond or herringbone pattern found on the brands luxury leather handbags. Legend is that the pattern was originally inspired by the stained glass windows of the Aubazine Abbey and the cushions in Coco Chanel’s Paris apartment.

A bottle of Chanel No. 5, the world’s best-selling fragrance, is perched on top of the cake. Open lipstick with the lid emblazoned with the Chanel logo, and a quilted purse and adorn the second tier. Cascading down the side of the cake is a luminous pearl necklace. A gift bag and signature black bow on the third tier complete the integrated design elements.

Best Tablescape Design

This neutral hued tablescape was created at Waterview Special Event Space for an intimate dinner for twenty guests. An Edison light rustic wood chandelier was designed by our décor team and custom built for the event. The focal point of the table was a table runner made of lush greenery and beautiful blooms that cascaded off the ends of the table. Simple elegance combined with natural earthy elements for the award winning design.
