My Srikandi friend, a Johorean but resides in Seberang Jaya, an Engineer by profession but deep inside, a baker and cake enthusiast and her passion brought her all the way to this humble place of mine to learn a thing or two about nozzles and buttercream. Not that she's new in this field, oh no, she isn't. She's made cupcakes, she's been to several other classes too but all she requested from me was ; - to learn how to make the MCB, how to make roses from buttercream and how to make a doll cake. So I told her, just come as she is, no need to bring anything, all would be provided for, insyaAllah.
This is the lady who said the magic words that prompt me to start doing this .She's also the same lady who gave me sleepless nights the past couple of days:-) thinking of how to conduct the class, can I do it? Can i 'really' do this?Am I ready for this challenge?What if.....and all those big '?' and uncertainties were answered yesterday, 23rd january 2010. Alhamdulillah, the day went well.
We started the day with some catching up with the latest news while having nasi dagang which I bought from the market that morning for breakfast.We are secondary school mates, though we went separate ways after the SPM, we somehow managed to stay in touch till now. whenever there are school reunions or gatherings, be it School dinner or Back to school Program, we tried to make it to the functions as much as we could, for old time sake and to cherish the sweet and beautiful memories that we shared at our old school.
there's no mistaking that this lady knew what she was doing.! Just look at how she held the piping bag and drew those fine lines.
tickle...tickle....The Doll...getting dressed...
making sure every single blossom is filled with the silver dregee.
make an upside down U , go up and down, up and down,voila, slowly but surely and eventually, you would get a rose and practice makes perfect.
how beautiful she looked in this pretty pink and purple dress, all done, hands on from rolling the fondant to the small flower on her dress and her head, by this mysterious lady....
