Spring has arrived....

The March equinox will be on 20March2010 at 17:32. But, it certainly feels like it already (even in our tropical country), it has been raining in the afternoon since the past 3 days. Hope this will be the end to the long hot & humid weather we had for the past 3 months; and lower electric bill now that the air cond can be turned off for most of the day; i think it's simply ridiculous to be running the oven and air cond at the same time in the kitchen.
And since it's also 1 week school holiday.... 'tis the season to get married ... or engaged

Order from Asma for a maroon theme engagement, thanks.

Ordered by the bride Shima, for her orange themed wedding. Thanks Shima, I've conquered my fear of making royal icing covered cake. The drop flowers turned out quite okay I think, being a first timer at making these. With the addition of glycerin, the royal icing did not set cement hard, suitable for the cake cutting ceremony. This is a good option for those who does not like fondant covered cakes but still wants a cake that can withstand our mostly hot and humid weather.

And an order from Hidayah for her friend's purple themed wedding. It was meant for hantaran initially but was used for the cake cutting ceremony. Thanks.
