Love is in the air

Celebrate the love you share... with a cake or cupcakes.

You can spell it out ....

Or add it to your birthday message

or send a heart shaped strawberry covered cheesecake

or give your mom cupcakes she could enjoy one piece at a time

or.. for the so many special friends you have, one or two of these cupcakes

or... names of those specific friends you love so much (but, i mispelled one of them, sorry Farah's sis)

or add some buttercream flowers to your love themed cupcakes
or add some simple drop flowers too

or..... replace the hugs n kisses u intended but couldn't give (for whatever reasons), with these cupcakes

Being bombarded with orders for lovey dovey themed cupcakes the past couple of weeks makes me wonder if there's any new date for the celebration of love in April/May on the calendar that I'm not aware of? Hmmm...

My deepest thanks to all of u for ordering, sorry i don't know your names. All of the orders above were thru the cake kiosk at the mall or friends of my existing customers. 

And here's the title song.....

Wedding Cake... and muffins too

I was so happy to be given another opportunity to make a wedding cake. Ordered by Yana, Nani's friend who liked my first tiered cake i did for Nani's wedding. Thanks so much Nani & Yana.
The cake didn't resemble much to the sample pic sent, my error in making the top tier too big and I didn't have enough fondant roses (and no time to make some more) to fully cover the top surface. A message sent by Yana and yet another order from their friends indicate that maybe they still loved this cake after all. Thanks girls !

Yana also ordered a thousand muffins to as gifts for her guests. For weeks i was concerned about how long it would take me to bake these muffins. So I bought a new industrial oven, which now takes up the only empty counter top space in my little kitchen. It turned out that the slowest process was not baking  the muffins, it was packing them. Was soooo glad that my mom and her helper came over to help. Thanks mak & dayah...

So..... to those who were wondering why I could't take your orders or why the "closed" banner on this blog for that last week in April, now you know....

Strawberry and Cake

Besides using strawberry for the topping, it's a good idea to dice them as cake filling so that there's some in every slice of the cake. I decided to give it a try after seeing it done in a few episodes of Cake Boss. I think the strawberries subdue the sweetness and richness of these cake and cheesecake. But, the tricky part of using strawberry is that you should use whip cream for the topping, and trying to smooth the topping is not so easy.

The cake in these pics were made a few weeks ago using M'sian CH and Korean strawberries. My favorite Driscoll strawberry is available at the nearby Giant store this week, and at a reasonable price, thanks to the current forex rate i guess.
