Gabrielle Murphy’s Favourite Things
Gabrielle Murphy is a stay-at-home mom who was inspired to continue the tradition of beautiful, meaningful birthday cakes she had growing up by starting Sprinkles Cake House, whose biggest challenge so far was providing nearly 500 pieces for Pret a Pour Tea, a fundraiser held annually for the BC/Yukon Region of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Favourite Things For Your Daughter
I tend to lean towards experiences rather than things, like travelling to new places or re-visiting old ones to promote a wider view of the world.
Favourite Thing For You
A 90 minute class at Bikram is time for me and only me. It’s nice to tune out for a while!
Favourite Thing For Work
Lustre Dust and Disco Dust. There aren’t too many things that don’t need a little shimmer and shine.
Favourite Place in Vancouver
Granville Island. There is always so much to see. My daughter’s favourite is picking out a piece of chocolate from ChocolateTas.
Favourite Birthday Idea
Something specific and personal. A day at the spa usually puts a smile on most peoples’ faces.
Favourite Kids’ Book
Being from Australia, it’s got to be Blinky Bill — a little koala who likes to be mischievous.
With or without our daughter, in Vancouver it’s either Gotham Steakhouse or The William Tell Restaurant.
