This past week we were so excited to be making the retirement cake for local football legend Angus Reid of the BC Lions!
Richmond boy Angus had been a well-known name to the city of Vancouver for over a decade now, playing since 2001. Although his football career may have had a rocky start due to health problems – he pushed through, breaking all barriers and showing everyone exactly what he was made of. As an offensive linesman he appeared in over 200 regular season games, 11 playoff contests, and 3 Grey Cup games with the BC Lions (winning 2 of the 3).
The veteran ended a 13 year long CFL career with a celebration with family, friends, colleagues and media at Ceili’s Pub in Kitsilano. We created 64 mini cupcakes decked out in Lions colours and his number. We also created a large recreation of one of his jerseys. Throughout the event we were excited to see a number of tweets from party go-ers about the cake and cupcakes, including a few from Angus himself. (See our favourite tweet below)
Congratulations on an amazing career, Angus! You are a great inspiration for every child looking to follow their dreams – with enough determination and will power anything is possible. All the best for the years to come!
