The first time I saw one of Corey Moranis‘ cakes, I seriously refused to believe that it could be edible. Bedecked with glitter and rainbow icing, it was nothing like I’d ever seen before, and that pretty much sums up Corey’s work as a whole: it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
A multi-disciplinary artist, Corey’s most recent venture is Coco’s Frosting Shack, a line of jewellery she launched from a tiny pink tollbooth near OCAD university last summer alongside some of her famous treats. I somehow never made it to the actual shack (though I did drool over Instagram photos pretty much daily), but when Corey decided to continue making and selling her accessories online she was kind enough to send me a few pieces to play dress up with!
Handmade with the help of some crafty high-tech machines, her plastic creations are available on Etsy, the Coco’s Frosting Shack site, and at local shops like Magic Pony and Ardith. Much like her sugary “edible frosting”, her wearable fashions are colourful, bold, and laced with something I can only describe as “that sparkle-magic touch”
