coco's frosting shop

Corey Moranis is one of those people who is never still, constantly buzzing with new ideas, whipping up fashion-inspired cakes that are completely bananas in scope and execution, making lights out of plastic fruits, selling both edible treats and wearable treats out of a tiny pink tollboth in an OCAD U parking lot... all the while having a total blast. I wish I could see the world through her eyes, since I love the glimpse I get of it through her work, which has such a playful, electric, and bold energy, full of colour and life.

I’m excited to share news of her latest endeavour, Coco’s Frosting Shack, the online shop, which launches today!


Earlier this year, Corey participated in OCAD U’s Small Space program and created a series of one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry out of plastic. She has now made similar pieces available online. In her words:

Each wearable art piece is made by laser cutting acrylic plastic into geometric shapes that combine together into unique and colourful gems. Gestalt Magic! These architectural necklaces are elegant, sculptural, fun, kool, dazzling, crystaline, and one of a kind. All pieces are designed and assembled by me, in Toronto, Canada! Bonus* These pieces glow like crazy amazey under black lights on the dance floor.


These images are from the collection’s lookbook, which she styled, and you can see how Corey took a simple material like plastic and made it look like a million bucks.



Below are a few of my favourite pieces!
