Cupcakes For Darling Husband

Hhmm...Don't you just hate it when you're all psych up to update your blog & somehow the internet connection goes haywire! Of late, I've been having problems with my connection and it's really driving me crazy *sigh* The rainy weather here are not helping as well :-(

Thankfully the connection is slightly better today & I'm taking the chance to rush out all my back-logged posts :-) Boy! Sure have loads to catch up!

These cupcakes was ordered by my dear friend, Era, whom in turn ordered it on behalf of her office-mate. It was a very last minute order thus I didn't have much time to do anything fancy or even 'bling' it :-P Practically had only a few hours to bake & decorate the goodies...The order was for a two sets of cupcakes & according to Era, her office-mate wanted to present it as a gift to celebrate her husband's birthday & also for eating pleasure :-)

Mickey & Minnie Mouse Cupcakes

Okay, here's a confession...I'm one of those people who DEFINITELY will go hysteria each time I step into those baking supply shops! When I say hysteria, I REALLY mean hysteria! You'll see me running here & there...touching this & that...and sighing each time I see great 'toys' in a form of cookie & fondant cutters, cake pans or even those beautiful colorful sugar crystals. Gosh! Just the thought of those shops makes me shiver with delight right now :-P

I loveeeeee walking into those shops and linger around looking at all the products...I find it so soothing & I usually get my best ideas there :-) The bad side of visiting those shops is that each time I walk out, I'll end up with loads of plastic bags containing all sort of new 'toys'! As if my pantry/storeroom is not already  bursting with all those cake decorating 'toys'!! Half of it I don't even know how to use it ( yet! )! Ha..ha..

On one such visit, I stumbled upon some super cute cookie cutters which brings back my childhood memories :-) I practically jumped with joy in the shop when I saw the cutters, much to the shop owner's dismay! Ha..ha..It may sound silly, but it really made my day :-) So excited was I over it that I immediately whipped up a batter of red velvet cupcakes the moment I reached home. Just couldn't wait another minute to use the cutters & make my cupcakes decorations. Good thing that I was going on a picnic with a bunch of friends the very next day ;-) So what better excuse to make cupcakes, rite? :-P

At the time I'm typing this away, the time on my clock is showing 3:40am. Just finished another last minute cupcakes order which need to be delivered a few hours from now :-P Since I'm up & about, thought I might as well catch up on my post...Still have loadsssssss to update! :-P

The start of February unexpectedly turned out to be a hectic time for me. Much to my amazement & definitely delight ( yeayyyyy!! ), my cupcakes seems to be getting great responses & orders had been pouring in non-stop :-) I was actually swarmed with cupcakes order when ZRZ called me up requesting me to slot in her very ( and I really mean VERY...he..he.. ) last minute order. Not wanting to disappoint one of my strongest supporter, I accepted ZRZ's request despite being 'buried' with cupcakes order that time :-P

ZRZ's order this time around was for a 50 pieces Orange Poppy Seed Cupcakes which she would like to bring all the way back to Kelantan, in time for her niece's birthday...It was such a sweet gesture on ZRZ's part that I couldn't help sharing her excitement :-)

Happy Birthday Auni!

Chinese New Year Goodies

The Chinese New Year celebration is nearing it's end & I have yet to update my post :-P Apologize for the delay as 'lil ole me was swarmed with cupcakes order ( much to my delight! ) ever since the start of February. On that note, my sincere thanks goes out to all of you who had purchased my goodies to grace your special occasions. Your support means the world to me! Hugsssssss!

I'm in between orders right now so I'm grabbing the opportunity to catch up on my back-logged posts :-) This post is dedicated to a dear friend of mine, Ms. Susan Li, whom not only is celebrating the Year of the Rabbit but she also happens to be my 6,000th blog visitor :-) Yeayyyy! Congratulations Susan! Thank you for visiting my blog & most of all, for all your encouragements rendered to me through out the years :-)

For Susan's winning cupcakes, I decided to decorate it in line with the Chinese New Year celebration. Something special for Susan :-x Also, it's an excuse for me to try my hands doing all those festive decos as I've never done Chinese New Year themed cupcakes before :-P

I was VERY excited over these cupcakes to tell the truth :-) Each of it's deco are all a very 1st for me...From the 3D oranges, the imprints to the Chinese characters writing on the 'ang pow'. Yeah, I know...Nothing much to shout about but it is a big thing for a novice like me! Ha..ha...

Cupcakes & Brownie Goodies

It always warms my heart when family, friends & customers chooses my goodies to grace their special occasions...Much more so when it's from a new customer :-) Not only do I get to share my goodies with them, but it also opens up a path to new friendships :-)

I was recently honored to be given a chance to know a very sweet lady by the name of Ms. Zaheeda. Though we have never met before, I was smitten by her sweet & friendly ways. She really had me at 'hello' via her mobile messages :-) Zaheeda initially requested a brownie which she would like to send to her aunt in Oman & somewhere along the way, she added a set of cupcakes for her mum as well :-)

I guess receiving new customers really made my day & help boost my confidence that I decided to try something new for Zaheeda's cupcakes deco :-P The deco might not be new to those professional bakers but as a novice, I was pretty excited about my new project, hand-made fondant flowers :-P It's nothing fancy or elaborate though as I really don't know how to do it *blush* I do have to start somewhere, right? Do or die, as I've always say :-P

Here are some photos of Zaheeda's cupcakes which she specially ordered for her mum...A token of love from a daughter to her mum. Ain't that sooooooooo sweet :-)

To Zaheeda, my sincere thanks for giving me the opportunity to bake the goodies for you. I've enjoyed every moment of it! I hope you & your family had enjoyed it as much as I've enjoyed baking it :-)

On another personal note, here's a warm birthday hugs to Zaheeda who celebrated her birthday recently...May your days be filled with lots of love & happiness :-)
