The cake i made for tea party organised by my dear friend Ratna for the 1987 Assuntarian batch. I had fun working on this because the design was entirely up to me and I've been wanting to do this cake design from Peggy Porchen's book which just arrived from UK last week. So many pretty cakes and i had a hard time deciding on which design to pick. Finally decided to do this cake using my favorite color combination: pink and brown! We gals had a blast at the get together. Thanks again to Ratna, who is also a wedding planner (http://www.parfaitprint.blogspot.com), for letting her place out to us and tastefully decorating the venue. Loved every detail. And a very happy birthday to all the gals of 1987 batch!

This is a 3D school bus cake ordered by Nida for her son's birthday. I have to thank my daughter Sabrina who gave me input on the design along the way. Good to have a child who sees the real bas sekolah 5 days a week. Thanks for your order Nida. Happy Birthday Muhallis.

This is a sample i made for a potential customer. Credits go to Bakerella for introducing this. It was really nice to see the outcome and i can't wait to do more of cake pops in various designs. For those who don't know what cake pop is, it's actually cake crumbled with a bit of buttercream icing. It is shaped according to what you want and then dipped into white/ dark choc. The white chocolate can be colored. We can also dip these cakes into candy melt. Refer to this website if you would like to try doing these: http://www.bakerella.com/category/pops-bites/cake-pops/
I was thrilled at doing these cupcakes after my friend, Linda, called to order them. Design was entirely up to me. I decided to do Kolam design cupcakes and searched through the Inernet for some pretty cool designs. When i was gonna draw the design with the piping bags, i realised that the design was too intricate to be done with icing. And then, there i was, at the kitchen table sitting for nearly 2 hours to come out with my own do-able design. Thank God i finished the cupcakes in time for delivery. Thanks for your order Linda.
This was ordered by Zarida for her daughters birthday. It's actually two vanilla cake stacked and carved into a pumpkin shape. I dindn't do too much carving so as not to have too much cake wastage. After carving, its covered with fondant which gives it a really smooth finish. Thanks for your order Zarida.
These are the cupcakes I made for halloween. By the time i finished making the fondant toppers, my eyeballs were like gonna pop out. Really tedious work but i loved the outcome. Sometimes people wonder why some cupcakes cost more than others. The reason is mainly due to the long hours being put in to create all those pretty toppers. Just like a lecturers job, who get paid by the hour, cake decorators are also the same.
Another order by Liza Hanim to celebrate her hubby, Shah and mothers birthday. She wanted a real big cake. So made double recipe of the normal carrot cake. This cake weighs about 4.5kg. Very heavy and yummy! Thanks again for your order Liza.

This cake was supposed to be a surprise for my niece,Misha, who just turned 8. Her mom told me that Misha is a big fan of Camp Rock. So, i got edible images printed and made this 2 tier orange butter cake covered and decorated with fondant.
Right after the party , Rayyan, the younger brother of Misha, told his mom that he too wanted a nice cake for his next birthday. He wants a transformer cake and he wants it bought from the SHOP. When Jasmin, his mom told him that Mak Anjang made the cake, he didn't believe her. To him, pretty cakes only come from shops. LOL . Kids are so funny and cute! Anyway, Happy Birthday Misha! Glad you like the cake.

This is the other cake ordered by Sarah for her nephew Fairuz. It is also a 5 inch high cake and weighs about 3.5 kg. I really enjoyed making the flowers which took a couple of days to do. The side of the cake is wrapped in lace. Thanks again Sarah and Fairuz.

Normally when someone orders a cake especially a hantaran or a wedding cake, they have an idea of how they want the cake to look like. I get very nervous waiting to see what kind of cake they have in mind.
When Sarah, my dear hubby's ex colleague wanted to order 2 hantaran cakes on her nephew Fairuz's behalf, i got a bit nervous, thinking what am i going to be dealing with. Then, she sent me pics of what she had in mind and i was thrilled, coz, the cakes were different. But, the cakes i make would definitely not be the same as someone else's cake as the 'tangan' and creativity is different, i told her. And she was ok with that.
This chocolate moist cake is 5 inch high and weighs about 3.5kg. A pretty heavy cake! It is covered in fondant as it is the best coating for hantaran cake. No smudges from from buttercream. And cake stays pretty. The side of the cake is stenciled with Royal icing. Very tricky to do, but the result, marvellous!
Thanks Sarah and Fairuz for giving me the opportunity to work on this cake. Selamat pengantin baru Fairuz!

These are buttercream cupcakes with gold and deep red gumpaste flowers ordered by my dear friend and neighbour, Nida. It travelled all the way to Trengganu. The flowers were from Cake Connection. Thank God they had the gold and deep red flowers as i did not have the time to self make the flowers due to the very short notice. Couldn't say no to dear Nida.
Thanks Nida! I hope you like the cupcakes
