How to Throw a Locally Sourced Letterkenny Party

Start with a super soft unicorn cake from Amy's Cupcake Shoppe

Minnevangelist co-founder Andrew Parks turned the big 4-0 on August 17, so Ashlea Halpern threw him a Letterkenny-themed Super Soft Surprise Birthday Party. (If you know, you know.)

We had decorations from Litin’s Party Value, Patina, and Paper Source; pseudo Puppers labels from Etsy slapped on brown bottles from Boom Island Brewing Company, Aqua Fuzz hazy IPAs from Indeed Brewing, sour watermelon hard seltzer from Bauhaus Brew Labs, and non-alcoholic Yunnan Grape Fizz from Jinx Tea; Detroit-style pies from Wrecktangle Pizza; and a star-shaped piñata stuffed with Georgian and Russian candy from Minsk Market in Eagan.

But the real showstopper was this beautiful custom cake from Amy’s Cupcake Shoppe in Hopkins. Owner Amy Brace was so incredible to work with and immediately got the Letterkenny theme; she even had a fan of the Canadian cult TV show on her staff who was stoked to make the cake.

Baker extraordinaire Lacey Ruggeberg did a magical job: The pastel unicorn mane featured mountains of pillowy-soft rainbow buttercream and sparkled with edible glitter; the filling was pink funfetti with a sweet-tart raspberry jam. The 10-inch cake could have served 15 people, but we also ordered vegan and gluten-free cupcakes for our vegan and GF friends. Amy’s was the perfect one-stop shop for everything and we couldn’t have been happier with the results. Recommendation = 💯
