Blue & Yellow Geometric Patterns

Syamil requested these cuppies for his classmates at ACMS; blue & yellow are the colors of ACMS logo.

P/S I guess the smell of ketupat and rendang from the throngs of family members and friends visiting Asyraf on the 1st day of Raya was too overwhelming. Asyraf insisted to be discharged from the hospital on the 2nd day of Raya. . Asyraf's tracheostomy was decannulated,  his IV tube removed while we were busy searching for a hospital bed and oxygen tank to place at my mil's house.  There were a couple of panic episodes when  Asyraf coughed heavily and gasping for breath, and was stabilized when my sil administer him oxygen by mask. He's doing better now judging by how much he enjoyed PS3 guitar heroes jamming session with his cousins. We are also seeking complimentary traditional methods to help him recover....

Heart Cake & Cupcakes

Ordered by Syieda & Eifa for their joint birthday celebration SMT Kulim. A 750g heart shaped cake with matching cupcakes. They didn't tell me their favorite colors, to be safe I made these multi colors blossoms. Thanks girls. I found out later that the girls like orange & pink, I had include both ;)

Hari Raya Cupcakes

Hari Raya celebration comes a little earlier to some. These cuppies were ordered by Ms T (aka Tina) for her mentees at IPGM Jitra and Sue for her friends at school as early Raya gifts. Thank you...

Goodbye Teachers !

This set was ordered by Ms Tina  for her trainee teachers at IPGM Darulaman Campus, Jitra. We could not decide a suitable time for Tina to pickup her order at my house so I suggested Tina to meet me at Hospital S. Bahiyah Alor Setar when I went to visit Asyraf. Thanks Tina.

Ms Tina was linked to this blogsite by Jusni, the avid photographer at http://wickedwarhol.blogspot.com/. He makes all the mundane things around us looks so impressive....

Asyraf is no longer in HDW ward, alhamdulillah. His tracheostomy is now connected to the O2 supply, only one tube (for Pulmocare formula) still remains in his throat. The upcoming Eidul Fitri is already bringing some happiness to us, Asyraf will be transferred to nearby Hospital Kulim tomorrow, insyallah.....

Farewell Cupcakes

Mas requested some sweet farewell gifts for her friends on her last day at the office. So we came up with these cuppies, personalized with everyone's names. Cupcake was placed in a larger silver foil cupcake liner and packed in individual square clear pvc cases ..... of which I forgot to snap the pics :(
Thanks Mas, have fun in your new office!

P/S Asyraf  typed a message 2 days ago telling that the doc had informed him that he needed to undergo another op. Ever since he's in HDW we've been communicating by texting on the phone, I kept forgetting to get him a small magna doodle instead. I could see he was in despair, earlier that day his left lung collapsed again when the nurses tried to turn him onto his sides. All I could find myself said to him "...don't worry Asyraf, get better and let's get out of this ward..."
He had the op done just now. A tracheostomy to replace the breathing etc.. tubes in his mouth. Hope to hear him talking/whispering again when we visit him this weekend.....

Cupcakes For Four Kids

For Four, doesn't that sound like one of the chic SmartCar models.
These 2 sets were ordered by Yatie. One set of chocolate buttercake & chocolate moist cupcakes with her kids names; then I requested for their favorite cartoon characters to add on the cuppies. My promise to Yatie, if the Barbie & Snow White images turned out so hideous I wouldn't put it on cuppies. Another set was vanilla cupcake with fresh strawberry and cream.
When Yna saw the icing pieces made using color flow method, her reaction was "you're funny mommy". I was even more worried when my daughter Suehaila said, "sapa dia nih.....?" (who's that..) referring to those supposed to be Barbie pieces. Well... here are the actual images I was trying to copy, taken from Yna's bag, tumbler and stationery set.
I sent an obligatory sms to Yatie immediately after I delivered the cuppies (she didn't look at the cuppies earlier because the box of strawberry cuppies was on top of it) ; apologizing if Athirah wouldn't recognize her Barbies on the cupcakes. Reply from Yatie "... looks great; they are so happy :) " Thanks Yatie.

From Aunty Nana with Love

These cuppies were ordered by Sharina, or "achik nana" as she's fondly known by her family, for her little nephew Luqman Aliff.
She provided 4 pics for the edible images, and wanted the cuppies with just a little buttercream and colorful sprinkles. Luqman was cheering so happy when he saw the cupcakes, I could still hear him cheering even when the door was closed as I was walking back to the car. That is one of the many moments that makes baking so meaningful to me.
Thanks Sharina, congratulations on the arrival of your new nephew, another birthday to remember! (Chombi, her sis received their bundle of joy last week after 10 years of waiting.... )

Number 5 Cake

As if the previous number 1 cake was not difficult enough (ha ha ha.... thanks Niza for your never ending challenges); this new order thru Nizaha was for a number 5 cake with edible image of mom & daughter. No specific theme given. Since the surface on top of the number 5 was so narrow, I printed the edible image on only 1/3 of the A4 icing sheet (balance 2/3 of the sheet for another cupcake order)
The whole cake was vanilla sponge to ease the cutting and shaping process. Cake was baked in an 8" round cake pan and a loaf pan. Excesses after the shaping process were 1/4 of the round cake including a 2" circle, and about 1/4 from the loaf pan; more than enough for my snack, and...my waistline too ;(
Cake was made with 15% less sugar this time after being informed by Nizaha that the previous Num 1 cake was a tad too sweet (thanks again Niza for the feedback)

Number 1 Cake, with Dibo the Gift Dragon

Getting cake orders from Nizaha always excites me. She always request something new for me to try. This Number 1 cake is for her daughter's birthday; choc & vanilla cake layers with sliced peaches filling. Also requested were edible image of her very cute daughter with her 2-toothed grin and Dibo the Gift Dragon theme.

I had politely refuse to make the number 1 cake for a few of my new 1st time customer in the past (i'm sorry....), but with Nizaha I just had to give it a try.

The number 1 pan was not available in this area, getting it delivered from KL would mean I had to pay double for the already expensive pan price to cover for the delivery charges. My solution after googling; baked it in an 8" square pans, then divide it into 1/3 and 2/3. The 2/3 portion became the main body, the balance 1/3 divided again ito 3/4 and 1/4 for the base and upper left "lip". This way I could fit the cake on the standard 12" cake board.

I got another order immediately after Nizaha's sister saw the cake. Thank you so much Niza!

Blue, Purple & Pink Cupcakes

Nora ordered this set for her daughter Amalia who likes blue colored buttercream. These are 36pcs smaller size cupcakes baked in size 8 cupcake liners and packed in a 14"x14" box. Thanks Nora, hope Amalia and her bros & sis likes it.

P/S I mispelled Amalia's name initially, was glad I noticed it just minutes before delivery. Here's the pic :P
