'Thank You For The 1,000 Facebook Fan' Giveaway

Yes, believe it or, Ritz Passion's Facebook page has reached it's 1,000th fan mark a little while back! *super glee* To be honest, I'm still pinching myself silly till now *ouchhhhhh* Just couldn't believe it! I mean, I wouldn't have thought that a page which I started as a food journal & to share my beginner's experience as a baker, now turns out as a full-fledge goodies page :-) Yipeee!

Did you know that few years back, this baker knows zilch about baking? ( still doesn't know much! )...Heck! I don't even know the difference between fondant, royal icing, fresh cream, yada...yada...yada...All I do know is that I'm just so passionate about food, especially baking. And that's where all my fans comes in! With their non-stop encouragement, support & love, this little baker slowly gained enough 'bravery' to try all that she needs to try in this caking line...From trying out 3D cakes to trying out new recipes ( the experience was extra scary to me as I'm self taught & never had any caking experience! ), my fans, whom I dearly refer to as my goodies lovers, goaded me on & never once discouraged me, no matter how many times I've failed. They lovingly challenged me to be my utmost best & pushed me forward. To them, all I can say is THANK YOU!

All the support from YOU & all I have to say is THANK YOU?!! Of course not! Nope, that's not all dearies...To show YOU how appreciative I am of your love, I've decided to host a 'THANK YOU FOR THE 1,000 FACEBOOK FAN' Giveaway :-) Yes...yes...yes! It's all organized especially for YOU & it's happening right now!

Nuts 'Bout Nutella

This is going to be another post of mine where I don't have much photos to show :-( Yup! This goodies photos ( which I snapped tonnes of! ) was affected by my condemned hard disk recently & I was pretty lucky to have found two of it in my laptop :-P

These Nuts 'Bout Nutella cupcakes was specially ordered by Dr. Izaza, my dentist turned customer & friend :-)

To Dr. Izaza, am so sorry that I couldn't post more photos of your goodies here :-( I hope  you did managed to snapped some photos of it for your personal album ;-) I wish to thank you for your continuous support & friendship. It is always a pleasure baking for you & I look forward to bake more goodies for you ;-)

A Longggggggg Overdue Post

It's really frustrating when you've baked special goodies for one of your best customer cum friend, snapped tonnes of photos for your personal album & in the end, only to have your hard-disk goes wonky & 'wipe off' all your goodies photos!

Yes, Dat's birthday cupcakes photos were one of those affected by my bad...very bad ( !!! ) hard disk :-( Proves a point that buying a very good branded hard disk, doesn't mean you're safe from all those pesky computer glitch! Sigh! Yes, I'm still sooooooooooooo mad ( more frustrated than mad ) about the issue of losing all my goodies photos to my crazy hard disk! Erghhhh!

Inhale...exhale...inhale...exhale...Sorry dearies. I just had to lash out my frustration :-P Let's move on, shall we :-P

Now, on a brighter side, thanks to my dear customer cum friend, Halifah, I get to share some of the goodies photo :-) Yeayyyyyyyyyy! 

Halifah, thank you dear for sharing your photos with me. I know this post is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy overdue. Totally my fault! Was actually trying my best to retrieve all my lost photos from my condemned hard disk so that I could dedicate those photos in this post of yours but after months of trying, I think it's a lost case as I've tried everything and yet still fail! *sad*

Here's the goodies I managed to 'kidnap' from Halifah's personal album...

Hope you'll understand the reason *embarrass look* Thanks so much for always supporting me & my passion. You ladies are just so wonderful & I'm blessed to have you in my life *flying kisses*

Thanks all for reading through...Much love to each & every one of you ✗o✗o

Sappy Me

One thing that will always...and I mean, ALWAYS make me go sappy is the word 'love'. Anything to do with love, my heart just melts away :-P You can imagine then how sappy I was when one of my loyal customer, Hariss, called me up & requested that I make an engagement cake for him. No, it was not for him ( he's happily married! ), but he wanted to present it as a gift to one of his family member who was getting engaged. Totally an 'auwwwww' moment for me *loveeeeee*

Receiving Hariss order was indeed an honor for me, especially so considering the fact that  he's ordering it all the way from Malacca, some 2 hours away from my place ( and totally in a different state )! I can't begin to tell you how happy I was about making his cakes but at the same time I was sooooooooooooo nervous *erkkkkk!*

Hariss order was actually for two units of cake, a Fudgy Cake for the engagement cake & a Red Velvet Cake for his family's eating pleasure...Unfortunately, Hariss's cake photos was one of those photos that was affected when my hard disk went berserk & 'died' on me :'( I was lucky that I managed to find one of the cake's photo in my laptop...

Cushion Cake With Purple & White Color Theme

To be frank, I was a nervous wreck throughout the process of making this cake :-P I so desperately wanted it to be perfect for Hariss as I didn't want to embarrass him when he presented the cake to his family...

Hariss dear, I hope I didn't embarrass you :-P I prayed that both the cakes was well received by your family members. My heartfelt thanks to you for giving me the opportunity to create your cakes, especially the engagement cake. I am indeed honored. Much love to you & your family :-)

Thank you all for visiting my blog & reading thru my ramblings...Hope you had fun looking at my creation ✗o✗o

A Boy's Cake

Nothing say's "it's a boy's cake" better than a football theme birthday cake, right? :-P I had the opportunity to make such a cake for dear Ms. Is, who ordered this for her son's 4th birthday recently.

Though making a boy/guy's cake wasn't really my forte ( blush! ), I have to admit that I had great fun making this cake...Those grasses was a bit challenging for me as I'm still struggling to get the hang of piping it correctly *blush* I did my best though ;-) 

To be honest, I actually snapped a few photos of this cake but sad to tell you that this cake's photos was one of the photos that my hard-disk managed to 'destroy' when it went berserk & 'died' on me! Here is all I have to show *sad face*

Football Theme Cake
( Vanilla Cake With Vanilla/Choc Chips Filling & Frosting )

To my dear Is, I'm sending you my sincerest thanks for giving me the opportunity to create your son's birthday cake. I am truly humbled by your support & trust :-)

Thank you all for dropping by & having a look at my work. Your visit means a lot to me :-) Till my next post, wishing you a great day ahead! ✗o✗o
