Strawberry & Chocolate Cupcakes

This order came from Reen, requested strawberry & chocolate cupcakes to celebrate arrival of Ramadhan (and her birthday) with her family in Perlis. Thanks Reen!

These are mostly moist chocolate cupcakes (with a few vanilla cupcakes) topped with a layer of chocolate fudge and/or whipped cream. I hope the cupcakes made it back to Perlis okay, since the strawberry quickly turns soft after I washed them just before placing on the cupcakes.

Read over the internet that fresh strawberry can only last 4 to 5 days after picking. Since these are from Driscoll's USA, I believe 3 days have passed before they hit the local supermarket shelves here. So.... in future I will only confirm fresh strawberry cupcakes order 2 days before delivery, that is if the strawberries are available at the local supermarket ;) The Gunung Jerai (Kedah's highest mountain) strawberry farm project has started to bear some fruits since early this month, hope to see their strawberries here in near future.

Ramadhan Mubarak to everyone.... (Many of my non-Muslim friends also welcomes the month of Ramadhan; to them it's an opportunity to sample various traditional delicacies from the Ramadhan bazaars)

P/S Asyraf has gone through his spinal surgery earlier today; surgery was postponed for 5 days since the ICU ward was fully occupied with H1N1 patients, and..... the surgeon was down with ILI. Thanks to all who have express your sympathy
