Tercipta Untukku..

As-salam and hello world..

I was honored when a friend of mine put her trust on me to deliver a 3 tier wedding cake for her lil sis wedding function.

When she called me, I was not fully awake. I just mumble few ideas that suits most brides. Then she mention this " My sis is lil bit different from other ladies. Some flowers should be okay". This sentence keep on playing in my mind that made me to have the 'Wedding Ideas' page. It was specially meant for her. With the song 'Tercipta Untukku' keep on playing in my mind. I browsed for few ideas that suits the bride's personality..

And this is the cake that she likes most

This cake was posted in So since the wedding theme colour is maroon, I threw few ideas to suit her wedding theme. But her sis said the bride wanted just like the photo.

I did wrong calculation. Wrong size cakes. Wrong size cake board. I couldn't fit the exact flower arrangement. Time ticking and I still need to deliver the cake before the function started at 8.30pm. My dear fren was not around. I could not explain much. left the cake knife. Went to buy alternative knife. I was late, they had the 'solat jemaah'. and again I could not explain to her again. So I sent her a SMS, thanked her for her mom invitation and send her my apology that I could not deliver as what as the bride wished for...

This is the actual cake sent....

Black & White Theme

Received a call from unknown. Saying that he wish to order a 'hantaran' cake. Asking for my location, he then introduced himself as 'So n so, staying at Jalan X'. Then I told him I'm at the main road of the Kampung. And he gasped in a real shocked. He's one of my so called uncle. Related thru my granma, mother's side.

he's looking for someone who can do a black and white cake for his client. I have only 14days. And this is the outcome.

When Your Roses ....

As-salam n hello world.

I was surfing for alive maroon rose, I found this rose. Then I realised. For all the sad moments that I had with not so perfect fondant or buttercream roses.. these roses makes me feels better...

Rose 'The Prince'
It is known as rose 'The Prince'

It is wise to googled or 'yahoo'ed for real roses photos. Buddy of Cake Boss said that perfect roses means there should be none which is look alike.

So frens, enjoy your sweet moments with your sweet roses ...

1 Cup of Coffee....

As-salam n nite world...

Hmmphh... so many being left. So much to upload. I really appreciate and thanked those who really tried the Ultimate Choc Recipe. It'll be marvelous if you use chocolate filling. Yummy yum yum. It really melts in your mouth.

The original owner of the recipe did mention, the cake should be perfect as room temperature even if it is just out from fridge. One of my client did that, and amazingly the cuppies just as good as freshly baked. For those who needs further info of the 1 Cup of coffee. This is the type that I used. 1 sachet for 1 - 1 1/2 cup. It will give you the best results. Especially in taste. Change to others according to your liking.

1 for 1 or 1 and 1/2 cup of coffee. And it must be hot.


In Malaysia it is norm to have 2in1 ( Coffee/Tea with sugar) or 3in1(Coffee/Tea with Sugar & Creamer)

Here Comes The Rain, There Goes My Flowers

As-salam n hello world.

Malaysia school holidays has just begun. It is fiesta time in Malaysia. Everywhere, you'll find Malay weddings. Especially over the weekends. Not only weddings, there are 'kenduri's.

When there is wedding, there'll be 'hantaran'. Exchange of trays of gifts from both bride's and groom's family. And a 'Hantaran' Cake or Cupcakes is a must. Usually fondant cake or cupcakes is the best choice. But some opt for buttercream frosting and fondant deco. This school holiday wasn't a good one for me. It comes together with rainy days and nites. I didn't prepare much roses fondant this time. But I totally focussed on using the Roses mould for chocolate. Got it from ICCA.

Alhamdulillah. My plan just nice and rite on time. Well, guess I have to raise fund and get an aircond for my production centre cum class area.
