His & Hers Engagement Gifts

I was so excited yet at the same time scared when I received this order from a lovely couple, Rexxa & Dilla...Their order thrilled me as I get to 'play' with more of my newly purchased baking tools :-P It also had my tummy tied in knots as not only will my goodies be part of their engagement gifts, but it is also my first time ( ever! ) baking for a Chef! Yes, Rexxa is a Chef attached to one of the prominent hotels in Singapore & when he sent me his email telling me of his intention, my jaw practically dropped to the floor! Me, a novice baker baking for a Chef?!!! I had to re-read my email several times just to make sure I got it right! He..he...

Rexxa told me that he wishes to order both his & Dilla's engagement gifts from me as they love what they saw in my blog...I admit that it was such an honor hearing that from Rexxa & Dilla...Nevertheless, it didn't help to put my mind at ease when they insisted that I do their engagement goodies :-P I was straight-out honest with Rexxa, saying that I am REALLY a novice baker & wonder if he might want to re-consider ordering from me...Not that I don't want to take their order, but again, me baking for a Chef? I somehow felt as though Ramsay Gordon is breathing down my neck ( seriously! )...He..He...

After much 'pep' talk from Rexxa & Dilla, not forgetting Rexxa coming all the way to Kuala Lumpur to see me & discuss on his order, I put on a 'brave' face & accepted their orders ( not without tonnes of warnings to them though! )...He..He...

For Rexxa's side, he wished to present Dilla with a set of cupcakes, decorated in red & gold...

As for Dilla's side, she wanted something different & opted for my new product, mini cakes...Her theme color was light blue & silver...

To Rexxa & Dilla, my utmost gratitude for your support & confidence in me...It's such an honor being able to bake for the both of you & to be part of your special day...I do pray that the goodies turned out as good as what you have expected it to be ;-)
