The MCB, i baked. it was an order frlom a friend, for her daughter's birthday.Her hubby, her other daughter, and now  this daughter, MCB, MCB and MCB, they are real MCB fans and I am not complaining cos it is one of the easiest and fastest to make.Even, if you call in the morning for it, you can pick it up in the afternoon or evening, provided of course I am at home to do it and I am not too busy with something else......hehe.....

The deco, from the blossom flowers to the two cut out kitten, and the bling bling, all done by batrisyia, with a little touch up here and there from me , of course, but she did nearly 100% of the deco
first, she cut out the blossoms, layered them, then the alphabets, she then arranged all these cutout on the cake board, the same size as the MCB to see if the deco fit the actual size of the MCB.After getting the green light from me, she then transferred all the deco on to the MCB itself and wallah!!!!! Thank you Batrisyia for assisting Mama and thank yo Ita for this order, happy birthday to sweet Auni Marrisa.
this is another of Batrisyia's work of art. the caned tin was wrapped in plasticine with different colours and she made it as her 'tabung' to keep her pocket money in
creative anak mama ni.

it'sbeen soooo.....soooo.....long since I last updated my blog.I had just finished cleaning and dusting the ceililng fan and the concorde, and the shelves and the dry flowers and thot I'll have a break and I can't have my Kitkat cos i am fasting, yes , we are now in the holy month of Ramadhan.and while i am having my breather, thot I'll do some spring cleaning to my blog too. luckily, no cobwebs if not Spiderman would be swinging from one cake to another...haha...

..even though i had not updated my cake collection photos but i have been coming here, it's just that I was at a loss for words, they were all cluttered and crammed in my head with "oh, i have not sent my 'kain' to my tailor yet, ' and oh, i have not settled the quit rent and assessent yet, and " oh, gotta go to Batrisyia's school to see her teacher about her exam results, and Tsara's school, and Ameer's school, and the list goes on and on and on , just like the Eveready battery or was it duracell? Wahtever!!

This sweet came last weekend to my kitchen, it's been a while, more than a year i think but i still remember him and the name of the girl that he made the birthday cake to, but only this time it is for another girl! naughty, naughty!
I did my first Stitch for him and his 21st key shaped birthday cake previously, and this time he still wanted 'Stitch' but this time, Stitch has a friend, which he didn't know what it was called.When i asked him, all he said that he bought it during his visit to Cameron highland with his family. So, i decided to use the Cameron Highland theme, that's why , strawberries everywhere.... to me , the mention of Cameron highland, two things come to mind, Strawberries and tea
hope you like it chong and so will your 'friend'...wink wink......hope you will enjoy your birthday celebration in Haadyai......sawadeekap! and kappunkaap....

Happy 4th Anniversary!

Well... belated is more like it. June 23rd 2008, marks my first venture into this baking and cake decorating world.  That makes June 23rd 2012, my fourth year in this wonderful ,blissful,fun and enjoyable  world.If this were a baby, born four years ago, she or he could walk by now, running or cycling. My youngest daughter, Batrisyia could even roller blading at this age, gracefully that is. Even when we took her skating at the Sunway Ice Skating ring, a few mothers asked me how old she was, for she skated gracefully and effortlessly on the big ice ring, among the adults and teenagers. I myself was struggling, hanging on to dear life by holding on to the bars on the side of the ring!But I was not alone, i was with my eldest daughter. My son was skating away with his younger sister.
my first article, i sent this just for the fun of it and wasn't expecting that it would be published.If only I knew that it would be published, I would have sent my photo and it could have been me, infront of the oven.....hehe........
Every journey starts with a single step but i didn't know then,  that my first step could lead me to where I am now. My first  step was to go to the cheesecake demo class. I had been baking cheesecake for years, all through books and friends, never went to the actual baking class and so out of curiousity i paid RM$$ for the class. Just to find out if I was doing it right ( or wrong! )  and i got more than what i bargained for. I did not get the answer to why my plain bake cheesecake cracked, nor did I know that it was supposed to be waterbathed to get a smooth  top. The answers to that were through watching the cooking channel on Tv and through reading a few books.

So, where am i now? Still in my kitchen, here in the same house, but cooking utensils and gadgets have increased. from just using a handheld mixer to using the kenwood mixer with stand and bowl.Four years ago, i only hade a few spatulas and one whisk, a few cookies cutters and a few baking trays and tins. Now, more than five spatulas, a few whisks, baking tins of different shapes and sizes, fondant tools , mats, colours, sparkles, brushes, souffle paper cups of diffetent sizes from 2 oz to 3.5 oz.
i started with oreo chocolate cheesecake, plain bake cheesecake and chocolate cake. In between ,
I made chocolate mousse
 and biskut batik.
 i made and baked sweet things that i like and i want others to enjoy them too. But when they asked what else do i bake? i started introducing new products and sometimes they even asked me for something i had never baked before! I started baking new cakes, brownies, tarts, pies and even some pastas! I googled, I flipped through my collection of cookbooks, I blogwalked, and i tried. from
brownies with walnut,( just dusted with icing sugar)
 marble cheese brownies ( this one is with a 2D design of minnie mouse for a birthday celebration)
and  blueberry cheesetarts,( as engagement hantaran)
 to red velvet cake
 rainbow cake.
 the latest is the pecan butterscotch cake plus chocolate eclairs and cream puffs.
Baking,decorating,drawing,and writing are all my passion.Combine all of those and I get this blog.
Just a medium to share my thoughts, to keep my  photos.

It took me longer to finishthisentry. So many things todo, I guess I'll have to cut this entry short for there are 1001 things to do.

taking this opportunity to thank my family ,friends, relatives and customers for their endless supports, without whom I wouldn't be doing this..
