Practice...Practice...& Practice!

Speechless ( serious, I was just lost for words! )...

Jaw dropping ( my jaw spent most of the time being on the floor, literally! )...

Over the top excitement ( and I mean, REALLY over the top excitement! )...

Yup! That pretty much sums up what I'm feeling for the past few days. Thanks to the magic of internet & Facebook, I had spent most of my time admiring the work of so many great cake artist/maker from all around the world. I was even blessed with the opportunity of making friends with some of them, much to my delight! A big thing when you're a newbie like me *glee*

Honestly, I just can't find the word that best describe their talent other than EXCEPTIONAL! Their goodies are just sooooooooooo incredibly superb that I can't help feeling envious ( in a good way of course! ) of their skills. It's just awesome! Heck! Even thinking of their goodies now STILL leave me speechless!

I would really, really, REALLY love to be able to make such beautiful goodies like them. Yet being a newbie in cake decorating, I know I still have a longgggggggggggggg way to go before I even have half of their talent :-P As the saying goes, practice makes perfect & I guess that's where I'll start ;-) Practice...practice....& lots of practice ;-) Wish me luck!

Practising On My Rose Swirls :-P

Made This Red Velvet Cake Just So I Have An Excuse To Practice My Icing Skills :-P

Red Velvet Birthday Cupcakes

Oh dear...oh dear! I'm lagging wayyyyyyyyyyyyy behind on my post - AGAIN! Bahhhhhhh! :-( My bad! Juggling between my daily house chores, attending to goodies orders, baking and not forgetting my 1001 other routines, at times it feels as though I'm running a non-stop marathon :-P I do feel bad about putting my blog on hold while I rush out other more important stuffs but I do try my best to keep it as updated as I possibly could ( which obviously I'm failing! ) *blush* Good news though, I'll be taking a two week TLC ( tender, loving & care ) break soon ( yipee yeay yeay! ) & hopefully during those time I could catch up on my blog's post ( or should I say postssssssss! ) *wink* 

Ohhhh! I'm already imagining myself by the beach typing away on my laptop :-) Okay...okay...I'm getting dreamy-eyed already! Back to my post....

These Red Velvet cupcakes was an order I made for a new customer of mine, Ms. Hamiza. Truth be told, I owe Hamiza thousands of apologies :-P You see, she first contacted me to order a birthday cake for her son's birthday but due to my knee deep goodies order at that time, as much as I wanted to, I was unable to take in hers. I really felt bad about disappointing her that day but thankfully she understood my situation. I was indeed excited when she contacted me again & gave me another chance to bake my goodies for her :-) Thank you so much Hamiza for your understanding & patience. I sincerely appreciate it :-)

To my dear Hamiza, thank you so much for choosing my goodies to grace your special occasion. It was indeed an honour to meet your acquaintance :-) I do hope you had enjoyed every bite of it :-)

Till my next post ( which I hope I'm able to update soon! ), take care everyone! Much love!

Weird Yet Comforting

Friendly @ unfriendly...If you were to ask me which one am I, I would definitely say 'friendly' :-P Sometimes to the brink of being over-friendly! That's when you'll see me yapping away! He...he...he... :-P Something about meeting people just thrills me, though I'm not sure if the other party feels the same when meeting me :-P *blush* Yes, I love meeting up with people & making new friends. A fact that I'm so very sure those who have met me will vouch for :-P

Meeting new people is like an adventurous experience to me & I simply love ( love...love...love! ) the process. I've met various kind of people throughout my venture in cake baking...Some are very shy and it usually took me some time to break the ice :-P Some are reserved and makes me feel like I'm standing in front of a teacher when I did something bad *lol* Some are as friendly as I am & we would just hit it off, like two pods in a pea :-) How or who ever they are, I love them all & we usually end up as friends, much to me delight!


I've never experience something which I did with Dida...Never had we known each other before this & she was only introduced to me by her cousin via word of mouth, thanks to my Red Velvet cake ;-) The first time Dida contacted me was through my Facebook account, when she commissioned me to make her a Red Velvet cake for her hubby's birthday. 

As you all know, I always get nervous when making goodies for new customers *blush* I have to admit that I was pretty jittery yet excited about meeting Dida for the 1st time. Then the weirdest thing happened....You know how when you meet new people, you'll usually reserve yourself first ( as in my case, I did not want to scare the person away...he...he... ). You'll start by making small talks & gradually start to get to know the other person, right? Well, not in my case with Dida! The moment we met each other, we were like two lost sisters who just found each other! Honest to goodness, I felt like I've known her for ages & the funny thing is, I've never even met her before this! It's just so weird yet very comforting :-) So excited were we about meeting each other that we even shared a bear hug(ssssss)! *lol* Till this date, I'm still figuring out what made us hit it off immediately :-P Whatever it is, I'm not going to dwell into it...Instead, I'm just happy I found a friend in Dida :-)

Dida, it was & still is a pleasure meeting your acquaintance :-) I'm just so blessed to be able to call you my friend :-) Meeting up with you is always something I look forward to *word!* ( Yes, Dida is now a die-hard fan of my Red Velvet Cake! Yeayyyyyyyy! ) Much love to you dear!

♥♥♥ Last but not least, a sincere note to all....Each & every one of you is a gem in my life & I love you all :-) From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your friendship :-x Hugssssssss! ♥♥♥

♥ Message from Dida 

"All of my guests 'tergila-gila' kan ur Red Velvet Cake. Sampai I kena sorrokkan kek tu sikit. Hahahahahaha!! Yang ada kencing manis pun boleh terlupa kejap. Ur cake memang classss!!"


"All of my guests went 'crazy' over your Red Velvet Cake. I had to actually hide & save some of the cake. Hahahahahaha!! Even those with diabetic seemed to forgot all about their condition. Your cake is indeed classy!!"

P/S : Honestly, this is the most memorable message I've ever received by far! I remembered laughing out so loud when I read it :-P It's just so plain funny & yet so sweet :-) Thanks Dida for sending me such a cheerful message :-) Muahhhhh!!

Sugary Sweetness

It's really a nice feeling when people acknowledge you, don't you think? It can be in a form of a smile, a pat on the shoulder, a nod or even a boxful of goodies :-)

This sugary sweetness was ordered by Ms. Fida to show her thanks & appreciation to her office colleagues. Ain't that just the sweetest thing?

Fida's order was for a mixture of vanilla bean cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frostings & chocolate moist cupcakes with chocolate ganache frostings.
