Red Velvet Engagement Cupcakes

Being a romantic at heart, I'll always get excited when I'm asked to bake my goodies for occasions such like engagements @ weddings :-P Something about those days just make my knees go weak :-P *day-dreaming*

Much to my delight, I was given a few opportunities to make goodies for such occasions in the past...Like the ones I did for dear Dilla & her fiancee, Rexxa. Loved every moment of it!

It's a no brainer then on why I was super excited when Dilla called me up recently & requested for another engagement goodies, only this time it's for her dear cousin who's getting engaged :-) Dilla's request was for a Red Velvet Cupcakes and something of white & green deco...I was more than happy to obliged :-)

To my dear Dilla, it was an honor when I first did both yours & Rexxa's engagement gift goodies...Having another opportunity to do the same for your dear cousin just made my day. Thank you so much for choosing my goodies to grace the special occasion :-) I am indeed truly humbled by your support & love. Hugssssssssssss!!

Goodies For Dear Mum

It was during one of my busiest time when I received Shima's order...I was already swarmed & rushing out goodies order for an engagement & birthday functions when Shima called requesting for a cake & some cupcakes for her dear mum. Now, how could I possibly not make time for that :-)

Already hyperventalating to rush out my earlier orders, I was at first unsure if I should take Shima's order. Yes, I do love baking & will always welcome any excuse to do so but I'm one particular & extremely meticulous kind of person :-P My family & close friends can vouch for that! Ha...Ha...It's a MUST that all my goodies that comes out from my oven taste & look good - no excuse! Oh! I can be really hard on myself most of the time :-P You could say that I'm the type of person who'll always go for quality rather than quantity. 

After much juggling & re-arranging my baking schedules, I was able to spare enough time to bake Shima's goodies...Really glad to be able to do so too as Shima's a first time customer ;-) Though we never met, her phone calls always delighted me as she's so jovial & easy to talk with :-) It is really a nice feeling gaining new customers. To me, new customers equals to new friends, and it is something I truly cherish :-)

Shima's order for her mum was for a unit of American Carrot & Walnut Cake With Lemon Cream Cheese Frostings & three ( 3 ) sets of Red Velvet Cupcakes. I decided to make it a bit special & decorated some of the cupcakes to fit the cake's deco :-P Something sweet for Shima's mum :-P Shima also requested that some of the cupcakes deco to be colorful, for the kids :-)

To my dear Shima, thank you so much for choosing my goodies. It's such a pleasure knowing you & I do hope to be hearing from you again :-) Much love! 

A Blessing...

Being a one-person baker sure have it's up & down moments...Down moment is when there are so many things I want to do yet couldn't due to my limited sources, like my hands! :-P Though I'm not complaining ( as I love every baking moment ), I do wish I have an extra set of octopus hands :-) Maybe a device of some sort where I can strap it on whenever I need extra hands to do my baking & much more :-P There are also times when I simply had ( this always break my heart! ) to decline an order/request due to my full baking schedules. Believe me, I would always, always try my best to fulfill all requests but sometimes a girl ( ermmm, maybe I should say woman ) just don't have enough time in a day, another down moments :-( Being sick/unwell is another down moment for me...If I could bake from my bed when I'm unwell, I would definitely do it :-P

Nevertheless, despite all those down moments I have to go through, I'm so blessed with much more up moments :-) One particular blessing I'm always & forever will be grateful for is the love, support & understanding of all my loyal customers & supporters. Hugs! No matter what down moments I'm facing, they were always there supporting me in every way. For this I thank you my dears :-x

Another blessing I'm ever so grateful for is the constant streaming of new customers & friends that I've been receiving lately. No words can ever express my thanks & appreciation to each & every one of you who took 'a leap of faith' in trying out my goodies :-) Much love to you!

One such person, who turns out to be such a loyal customer & definitely a friend, is Ms. Hasnita from Puchong :-) To tell the truth, I wasn't sure where or how she heard of me, but I'm just grateful that she was willing to try out my goodies when she placed her first order with me :-) I remembered how nervous I was when receiving Hasnita's order :-P Yup! I always get so nervous when fulfilling orders for new customers, you know those hands & legs shaking kind of nervous :-P Thankfully Hasnita was happy with her first order & has ever since ordered countless of goodies from me :-)

Here are some photos sent in by Hasnita...Thanks so much for sharing dear :-) As you might be aware, all my photo folders in my laptop was 'swallowed up' & couldn't be recovered till date :-( A major down moment for me :'(

To my dear Hasnita, your love & support means the world to me :-) Thank you so much & I do hope I'll be getting much more love from you :-)

To all my loyal friends & customers, you all are my blessing & will always be my up moments :-) From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for everything - for the encouragements, supports, recommendations, understanding, patience, compassion & most of all for the love you've showered me with *teary eyes* Hugssssssss!

Technology 1, Me 0

It's official - I lost to technology! Erghhhhhh! Despite using various software to recover my lost photo folders ( yup! my laptop had a glitch recently & 'swallowed' all my photo folders ) and staying up till the wee hours running those programmes, my files are no where to be found...Sob...Sob...Okay technology, you definitely won! Raising a white flag now! Sigh!

Image Taken From The Wide World Of Web

As much as I hate to accept the fact, I'll guess it's time for me to move on ( with much sobs nonetheless ) & re-start another portfolio of my goodies...Yeah, I've always considered my goodies photo my portfolio...I was never a baker @ a cook before, so those photos are actually my own personal 'proof'...Ha...Ha...Hence why I was sooooooo OVERLY distraught over the lost photos :-P

Distraught apart, I'm sending my sincere thanks & love to both my heroes ( my darling honey bunny & my dear 'son' ) for being so supportive & patient enough to hear all my moans & groans eversince the computer glitch :-P Yea, I know I might be the 'lousiest' person to be with during those time but both of you prevailed & stood by my side & even tried your best to retrieve the folders...To both of you, muahhhhhhhhh!! You're such an angel & I'm lucky to have you in my life :-) On another note, err, guys, any other program we can use? Pleaseeeeeeeee...*just trying my luck - begging* :-P

Well, I guess for the next few posts, I'll have to make do with posting 'borrowed' photos of my goodies which thankfully was sent in by my friends & previous customers :-) Thank you so much dears for being kind & supportive enough to attend to my pleas :-P You're a life saver! Much love to each & every one of you! Hugssssssss!

Extra love to my darling Ira for being so supportive through-out my 'ordeal' recently :-P She knows how 'erghhhhhh' I am with computers, hence her constant encouragements & supports means the world to me :-) Much love to you sis! Muahhhhhhhhhhhh!

Here's my longgggggggg overdue post on her goodies which she ordered from me a while ago...I was so wrapped up rushing out orders & with the computer glitch and all, I didn't manage to blog about it, until today :-( Sorry dear for the delay...

This order was made by Ira for her darling son, Mukhriz ( the cutest boy evehhhhhhhhhhh! ) for his 4th birthday celebration. I was honestly all excited & thrilled about the cake from the moment Ira commissioned me to make it :-P Much more so when Ira gave me a 'free pass' to design Mukhriz's birthday cake as I see fit :-P Yeayyyyyy! Simply love it when I get the opportunity to let lose my imagination :-P After much thought & planning, I finally decided to go with a plane theme - something I'm sure a boy would love :-P I also added a surprise in my goodies - a rainbow cake :-P

I could not have proceed with updating my blog if it was not for Ira...Too distraught was I over losing my photos, especially Mukhriz's cake photos :-( Thankfully Ira brought smiles back to my face by sending me photos from her personal album. My utmost thanks to her for allowing me to share this in my post...You're such a dear & I love you for that! Muahhhhhhh!

It's truly an honour to me that you've chosen my goodies to grace Mukhriz's special day, Ira...Your continuous support & love means the world to me. Thank you dear! I'm loving your post in your blog as well! Thank you...thank you...thank you!

Till my next post, sending much love to each & every one of you out there...Hugssssss!
