Decorating With Buttercream

Decorating cake with buttercream have never been my forte. In fact, if I could be bluntly honest, I find it quite intimidating :-P No matter how many time I practice, I just feel that my buttercream decorating skill is wayyyy below par. Those slight uneven cream or not sharp edges can really irk me at times. That is when my OCD goes to hyper drive! And I have to tell you, it's not a pretty feeling! Usually by the time I'm done with my buttercream decoration, I'll be truly drained! Just covering a cake with buttercream layer would take me hours! Yeah, I'm THAT petty! *chuckles* So you can imagine how many hours I usually take to finish covering & decorating a cake :-P

Any way, when I was requested by Ms. Hasnita to create her Chocolate Moist Cake, I was feeling rather 'daring' & decided to try something different. This was what I came up with ;-)

Chocolate Moist Cake With Chocolate Buttercream

To my dear Hasnita, sincere thanks for giving me the opportunity to create your cake & for your continuous support. I have to admit, I really had fun making your cake :-)

Thanks all for taking the time reading through my ramblings ;-) Much love to all of ya! ✗o✗o

10 November 2014


When I first met this bubbly group of gals, the first thing that struck me was how wonderful their friendship is :-) And I just love that about them! They share everything together - laughter, joy, sadness, everything!

Friendship is one of life's greatest treasures...It is to me. It's something I value deeply. So when I was asked by these lovely gals to create a birthday surprise for one of their best friend, Syikin, I was indeed over the moon with happiness & truly honored :-)

These are the cupcakes I created especially for dear Syikin...

White & Blue Theme Birthday Cupcakes

Chocolate Moist Cupcakes With Vanilla Buttercream

And thanks to my dear Haley, I also get to share some of Syikin's beautiful moments with her besties :-)

The Sweet Birthday Gal, Syikin :-)

Am Loving The Look Of Glee On Syikin's Face - Priceless!

Syikin & Her Besties

Sweet Haley & Syikin

My sincere thanks to Haley & friends for always supporting Ritz Passion...Most of all, I wish to thank you wonderful dearies for your friendship & love ✗o✗o

Gosh! Call me sappy but I can't help but think of my dear friends while typing this post. It made me realize just how much I'm missing them. To all my dearest friends, no matter where you are, this is especially for you...

Best Kinds

The best kinds of people are warm and kind
They are always there and they never mind

The best kinds of people smile and embrace
They support you with strength and grace

The best kinds of people love and cherish

They lift you up when you're near to perish 
The best kinds of people share your joy
To laugh with you, to joke and enjoy

The best kinds of people stand up tall

No matter how hard they fall
The best kinds of people are honest and true
The best kind of person, my dear, is YOU.

Much love to all & I thank YOU for your friendship :-) It means so much to me even though we've never met & are just on-line friends. Have a lovely day all! ✗o✗o

Engagement Cupcakes

I have always loveeee making wedding/engagement goodies. I guess you could say that I'm a softie when it comes to lovey dovey things.Yea...yea...hate to admit it but I'm such a romantic fool *blush*

You can imagine then how excited I was when my dear friend, Ms. Nurul called me up, requesting that I make an engagement cupcakes for her. Nurul plan to present it to her friend who's getting engage. What a sweet gesture :-)

So excited I was about creating Nurul's goodies that I decided to take the plunge & try my hands on making some handmade fondant roses. Do bear in mind that I've NEVER done handmade fondant flowers before so this was a BIG step for me :-P

Dark Blue & White Theme Engagement Cupcakes

How Do You Like My Fondant Roses? :-P

Vanilla Cupcakes With Chocolate Ganache & Fondant Deco

I must say that I was pretty happy on how the cupcakes turned out :-) *glee*

To my dear Nurul, my sincere thanks for your continuous support & for giving me the opportunity to create these goodies for your friend. I am truly humbled.

Thanks all for reading my post & I hope you've enjoyed your time browsing through my goodies photo :-)

Much love to all! ✗o✗o

Short Notice Wedding Cupcakes

Short notice orders always send me into a frenzy & cause ultimate panic attack! :-P You REALLY wouldn't want to see me during those times as I will 'magically' turn into a berserk person - hair flying in all directions, heart beating non-stop, running all over the house like a headless chicken & all! Ha! Ha! But really, I turn into such an ugly hag each time I receive last minute orders. Hence why I usually shy away from such orders :-P

However, I just can't deny Ms. Fauziana's last minute order when she called me up asking for some cupcakes. How could I say 'no' as it was for a very special occasion - a wedding! Now you know what a romantic fool I am, right? How could I say no to wedding goodies? Absolutely a no-no! :-P

Fauziana's request was for some Chocolate Moist Cupcakes with a pink & purple theme. And her other surprise was that she'll be picking it up at 3am! Yes, you've read it correctly. 3 am as in three in the morning :-P Understanding her dilemma in preparing the wedding & all, I agreed to help her out & come up with this set of cupcakes :-)

Pink & Purple Theme Cupcakes

To my dear Fauziana, thank you so much for your order & for allowing my goodies to grace the special occasion :-)

Thanks for reading & sending my love to all! ✗o✗o

Tom & Jerry Birthday Cake

My heart skipped a beat & practically went straight to my throat when I received Sue's phone call :-P She was wondering if I could come up with a birthday cake for her nephew within a few short hours :-P I don't know why, but short notice orders could really send me into a frenzy! I'm easily panic & can really get cold feet! :-P I guess that's because I'm such a beginner when it comes to cake decorating ( despite being involve in cake baking for years ) :-P I'm a self taught cake decorator, so as you can guess, I'm pretty 'novice' when it comes to creating cake designs *blush*

Anyway, Sue being one of the sweetest person that I've known, I just don't have the heart to disappoint her, so I accepted her order ( while praying that I'll manage to come up with a decent looking cake! ) :-P Her request was for a Tom & Jerry themed birthday cake. With the time constraint, I wasn't able to let my imagination flow freely so this was all I could come up with :-P

Tom & Jerry Themed Birthday Cake

Fudgy Cake With Vanilla Buttercream

My dear Sue, I sincerely hope that you're happy with the outcome of your cake :-) My sincere thanks for choosing my goodies to grace your special occasion :-) Thank you sweetie ✗o✗o 

Thank you all for reading & I bid you a good night! ✗o✗o 

Smiley Cupcakes

A simple Smiley Cupcakes I did for Ms. Fiza :-) Fiza's order was for Chocolate Moist cupcakes with chocolate ganache & decorated with smiley faces :-)

To my dear Fiza, thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to create your goodies :-) Though it was a short notice order, I have to admit that despite the time constraint, I really had so much fun 'playing dough' making the smiley faces :-) Thank you & hope your special someone enjoyed the cupcakes ;-)

Thanks all for reading! ✗o✗o

Quirky Me :-P

Having a slight case of an Obsessive Compulsive Behavior ( better known as OCD ), I have to admit that I have a few quirky things that I just HAVE to do each time I'm about to do my baking, especially when it's for goodies order :-P In fact, come to think of it, it's more like a 'ritual' :-P Errmmm, nothing major, just little things like giving my eggs their 'bath & scrub'...washing & rinsing all baking containers/bowls that I'll be using a day before ( even though I've washed it before! )...wiping my tabletop at least a few times with sanitary wipes just so my working area have that 'germ free' feel :-P Oh! I also have to go through all my baking tools ( especially the cake pans & spoons/ladles/scrappers ) the night before just to make sure there's not even a tiny speck on it :-P 

If you think that's weird, let me tell you THAT is only a fraction of the things I would go through before I start my baking projects...You wouldn't want to know the other 'rituals' I go through during & after each project! If I were to tell you now, I'm very sure that this post will be a lengthy one! So let's just skip that & allow me to save you from a major boredom! *chuckles*

With all my quirkiness, I guess you can imagine how 'crazy' I became when I was commissioned this dinosaur themed birthday cake order by Ms. CKN :-P I practically had to channel my inner 'Karate Kid' self! Wash...and wipe! Wash....and wipe! Washhhhh....and wipe again! Yup, that pretty much sum up what I did to the toys that I place on the cake :-P Took a bit of self control on my part not to wash the toys till the color wears off! :-P

Okay, enough of my yapping...Here's the cake I created for CKN's son. It's a Peanut Butter Cake with peanut butter filling & vanilla buttercream :-)

Dinosaur Themed Birthday Cake :-)

A special note to CKN...Dear, you've been such a strong supporter of my work all these years & nothing makes me happier than being able to create yet another goody for you & your family :-) From the bottom of my heart, thank YOU for the love...for the support...for the encouragement...and most of all, thank you for your friendship. It means the world to me! :-)

Would love to yap more but I need to excuse myself for now...Quirky me have to do some 'rituals' for an order tomorrow :-P Till my next post, wishing all a good night & sweet dreams! ✗o✗o

Hello Kitty!

It was such a slow day today that I decided to clean-up my laptop's folders...A tiring & tedious effort I might say, especially so when I'm one of those non-technical kind of gal :-P After a few hours, my eyes started to see stars & I decided that I'm done for the day...I was cleaning up one last folder when 'tadaaaaa'! Yup, I came across a few photos of my goodies! The ones that went 'lost' when my laptop went kaput before! Too bad it's only a few photos out of the many that were lost. But hey, I'll take whatever I can ;-)

Nevertheless, I'm just happy to have found this...It's my Hello Kitty cake :-) I have to admit that it's of sentimental value to me as it's my very first Hello Kitty cake. You know how each 'first project' means the world to any cake maker, especially for a beginner caker like me :-)

This cake was requested by Ms. Iezah, who wanted a Hello Kitty birthday cake for her daughter, Rahimah. I was pretty nervous at first yet excited at the same time :-P After a few discussion, Iezah told me that she wanted a pink theme cake & that she's giving me total free rein on the design. How cool was that! Free rein - best thing to a cake maker! :-)

Here's what I came up with...

Hello Kitty Theme Birthday Cake

Vanilla Cake With Strawberry Jam Filling 
& Vanilla Buttercream

To my dear Iezah, thank you so much for your order but most of all, thank you for trusting me to create your daughter's cake. It is indeed an honor being able to bake for you :-)

That's it for tonight & hope you all have enjoyed my post :-) Much love to all, as always! ✗o✗o

Candylicious Princess Cupcakes

I'm not sure about others but to tell you honestly, I always...always...& I really mean ALWAYS get super excited when I'm asked to do goodies for children :-) There's just something magical about making goodies for them :-) Not sure what it is but I assumed it's the 'little kid' that we have inside of us, no matter how grown up we are ;-)

Imagine my excitement when I'm asked by Ms. Chia Ying to make a set of birthday cupcakes for her little daughter ( or was it niece?...Geez, old age is really catching up with me! ). Her request was for a Chocolate Fudgy Cupcakes with a mix of some Candylicious Cupcakes. And the part that I was so excited about was obviously the theme/decoration :-P After much discussion over the phone, I understand that Chia Ying wanted a sweet pink color theme and that she wish to incorporate some Disney's Princesses on the cupcakes...How cute a theme, right?

Anddddddddddd....Here's my take on it ;-)

Seriously, one of the best time everrrrr! I had sooooo much fun making this :-) I even made some extra cupcakes loaded with candies as gifts! :-P

Sincere thanks goes out to Chia Ying for choosing my goodies & for giving me the chance to create her cupcakes. I do hope that she had enjoyed it & that it brought a big smile to little Chloe's face :-)

Hhmmm...Suddenly I feel like watching some Disney's cartoon :-P Probably something with princesses in it ;-)

Toodle-loo & a very good night to all! ( it's 1:40am on my side of the world, in case you're wondering ) :-P

Much love! ✗o✗o

Chocolate Almond Brownies

A chocolaty treat...Full of almond nibs...Topped with chocolate ganache...and lastly, sprinkled with loads of almond slices. Yup, that's basically a description of my Chocolate Almond Brownies ;-)

Here's one that I've baked for dear Ms. Farina :-)

Thanks so much Farina for this order of yours :-) Always a pleasure baking my goodies for you dear :-) Much love & big hugs to you!....And of course, much love & big hugs to my dear readers/goodies lovers as well ✗o✗o

Orange Poppy Seed Cupcakes

Receiving repeat orders from new customers always makes my day :-) Nothing makes me happier!

So when I received a follow-up call from Tunku Muna, after her previous initial order, I was totally over the moon with joy :-) This time around, Tunku Muna requested for some Orange Poppy Seed Cupcakes with simple decoration & here's what I came up with....

Simple Orange Poppy Seed Cupcakes

To my dear Tunku Muna, I am indeed humbled to be able to bake my goodies for you & your sweet family. There are just no words that can express how much I sincerely appreciate your continuous support & encouragement. Thank you Tunku ✗o✗o

Well, that's it for tonight...Honestly, am having a bit of a 'blogger's block' right this moment! :-P Pretty obvious ehh? *blush*

Gosh!...My brain's a total blank that I can't even think of a proper way to end this post! I guess here's where I say nighty night & thank you all for reading :-) Ohh! Much love to each & every one of YOU as well ✗o✗o

Little Treasure

Remember in my previous posts how devastated I was when my laptop went kaput & 'swallowed up' all my goodies photo albums? Yes, I'm still very sore about it as those goodies photos of mine means the world to me. It's basically a 'portfolio' of my work throughout my cake making journey. It's truly unfortunate that despite all my efforts, I never did managed to recover those photos of mine :-(

Imagine then my sheer delight when somehow, while scrolling through my Facebook, I saw this cake photo which I did a while back! And yes, it's one of the photos that was 'deleted' by my kaput laptop before!

I'm not taking any more risk of losing yet another photo ( which to me is like little treasures ) so I decided to upload the photo here & blog about this cake. Plus, I never did get the chance to post it before as my laptop went kaput, along with all the original photos :-P As the saying goes, better late than never, right? ;-)

Too bad I only found one photo of the cake...But I guess it will suffice. Better to have one photo to treasure, than none at all! ;-) Any way, this cake was requested by dear Ms. Farhani. If I remember correctly, it was a gift that she wish to present to her dear friend in celebrating her friend's wedding day. It was to be a part of the wedding dowry :-)

Farhani's request was for a Fudge Cake With Vanilla Buttercream Frosting & that the cake to be striking pink. According to her, her friend loveeeeeeeeeeees striking pink :-) Here's the cake that I especially design for her friend...

Striking Pink Themed Wedding/Dowry Cake

To my dear Farhani, I know this post is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy overdue. My sincere apology dear as I wasn't able to blog about it before due to the obvious issue of all my photos went missing :-( Couldn't blog about your cake if I have no cake photo/s to show, rite? :-P But here I am blogging about it now ;-) I would like to take this opportunity to convey my sincere thanks for giving me the chance to create your special gift to your friend. Thanks so much for your continuous support my dear. It means the world to me! ✗o✗o

Hhmmm...Though the chances seemed so slim, I do hope that I'll be able to find more of my little treasure photos soon ;-)

Till next time, much love to all! ✗o✗o

Frilly Cake Try Out

A confession...I'm a super crazy gal when it comes to cake stuffs :-P I honestly go crazy when I see all those cake items, be it at any of my local cake supply stores or those online cake sites! You might say that I'm a cake-stuffs-shopaholic ( though my hubby says I'm more of a cake-stuffs-hoarder! ). Either way, I'm super guilty! :-P

How does one control one self when one sees all those wonderful cake items that can miraculously turn a plain looking cake into one of those fancy looking ones?!! I for one, just can't help it! Plus, I super need all the fancy cake items to 'beautify' my oh-so-plain-looking cakes :-P

My cake room ( it's actually a store room, but I want the room to sound fancy, so bear with me...he..he.. ) is already overflowing with various kinds of cake stuffs - lace moulds, cutters, cake pans of all sizes, stencils, tappits, you name it! So much so that hubby dearie has lovingly warn me that there can never be any more cake stuffs purchases UNLESS I start using some of it. Oh ya! Did I mention that I haven't even use half of my cake stuffs yet? Hence the 'warning' from hubby dearie :-P

Here's when my 'raid-the-store-room-and-better-start-using-the-unused-cake-stuffs' project started! In order to make sure I'll be able to continue with my 'cake-stuffs-craziness', I'm slowly taking out my 'toys' & having a go with it. To be honest, I didn't use most of the cake stuffs that I've bought because I actually am 'scared' to use it! In case you don't know, I got into this cake making business without any knowledge or experience on cake decoration/making *blush* Just slowly trotting through this journey based solely on my passion & my crazy 'play dough sessions' :-P

One of the cake toys that have been 'hidden' in my cake room is a set of frill piping tubes set. Now, the reason I haven't use this is because I'm not confident with my piping skills. Heck! I barely can make a full straight line with my plain No. 1 piping tube! So you can imagine how using a frill piping tube scares the living light out of me :-P

PME Frill Piping Tubes Set
*Image Taken From The Wide World Of Web*

So when a dear sweet friend called me up to request a birthday cake to celebrate a double birthday - her's & her little princess's, the first thing that came to my mind was a frill cake. What better decoration to suit such sweet ladies other than something frilly & girly, right? ;-) Perfect excuse for me to use the frill piping tube!

After much sketches on my drawing pad ( yes, I'm old school & I still do my cake sketches on papers...he..he.. ), I finally decided on a cake design for dear Tunku Muna & cutie pie Princess Wan Zanariah :-)

Heart Shaped Cake With Frills,
Flower & Butterflies Design

Cake Flavor : Peanut Butter Cake With
Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

To my dear Tunku Muna, I am truly humbled to be given a chance to bake & create both yours & Puteri's cake. Nothing beats the joy & happiness that I feel from being able to make goodies for my loved ones. For this, I THANK YOU, Tunku Muna ✗o✗o

I guess that's one cake stuffs tried & used! :-P Maybe I do need to practice more in order to improve my piping skills *chuckles*

Well, that's it for today's post...Now excuse me while I do some 'treasure hunt' & see what other cake stuffs 'hidden' in my store room that I can use for my next project ;-)

Toddle-loo & much love to all!

A Cake For That Special Someone

Hello there goodies lovers!

As one might have noticed, I've been absent from blogging for quite some time :-P And yes, I've been receiving some inquiries and even some complaints ( my bad! ) on why I have been away too long :-P Sincerest apology for the longggggg hiatus my dears. Yours truly have been quite tight up rushing out orders & attending to the never ending tasks of living *sigh*

Any ways, as much as I hate to admit it, I'm wayyyyyyyyyyyy behind on my post, so in order for me to catch up to my recent goodies post, I think I will have to resort to a 'quickie' or maybe I should call it a 'drive-by' kind of post for my coming blog's post ;-) Hoping by doing this I will be able to clear my 'draft box', which is sadly collecting dust :-P

So here goes my first 'drive-by' post...

This Red Velvet Cake was ordered by dear Miss Yaya to celebrate her special someone's birthday :-) Yaya especially requested for a simple deco kind of cake & here's what I came up with ;-)

Ahemmm...Please do pardon my not so fancy photos ya :-P I had to make do with these two photos as my photo master folder has been 'swallowed up' by my laptop, which crashed some time ago :-( 

Red Velvet Cake

Yaya my dear, my sincerest of thanks to you for choosing my goodies to grace your special occasion. I know this post is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy overdue & I truly apologize for this *bad...bad girl I am!* Much love to you dear ✗o✗o 

Till my next 'drive-by' post, toodle-loo my dearies! Yours truly need to go bake & settle some M&M's Chocolate Chips Cookies orders! Much love always! ✗o✗o

A Mom's Love

I managed to grab some free time today & decided to use the time to update my blog. So here I am! Yeayyyy! :-) Now, what shall I blog about today? Hhhmmm...Oh! Now I remember! Today's post will be about a cake that has a special place in my heart...

Now, before I yap away, please bear in mind that this was not one of my recent cake but it was actually made for an order some time ago. The reason that I only get to post about it now is that I finally found a few ( yes, just a few - two to be exact! ) photos of it. In case you've missed out my earlier blog's posts, my laptop went kaput & together with it was ALL my photo albums, including all my goodies photos :-( I'm still upset about it but tried as I might, I'm just not able to retrieve any of it :-( I'm just lucky to stumble upon a few of my goodies photos in some of my folders that I managed to 'revive' :-P

Through-out my baking journey, I've baked & made quite a few cakes. Each & every one of my cake has a special place in my heart...yet this cake remain as one of my favorite. It remain as one of my favorite not because of it's design or the process that I went through creating it but because of the person that ordered it - Ms. Dayang. 

From the moment I received the call from Dayang, I could feel the excitement in her voice :-) So much so that till date, I still can remember each step of our discussion. Dayang called to inquire about a cake that she wish to have for her son's, Khalis Haikal, birthday. 

And here is what I remember most about Dayang - her love for her son. From start & throughout each of our discussion, I could feel the love emitting from Dayang. It's really hard to explain but that is exactly what I feel each time Dayang speaks of her son & the cake that she has in mind :-) Dayang explained that her son has a favorite teddy bear & wanted me to incorporate it into the cake. She even took the trouble to snap the teddy bear's photo & sent it to me as reference :-)

The love she has for her son really touched me & I was determined to do the best that I could. Do bear in mind that at this moment of time, I totally have no idea on how to make or create a figurine! 

The day of delivery finally came & imagine my relief when I met Dayang :-) She practically had the biggest of smile on her face upon seeing her son's cake :-) Really, just looking at her face makes it all worth while. Dayang, thank you so much for choosing my goodies to grace your son's birthday. It was indeed a pleasure baking it for you...but most of all, it was a pleasure to meet such a loving mom like you. The love you have for your son really touched me & I was so inspired by it. Nothing is more priceless than a mom's love & you've definitely proven that :-)

'Just Married' Cupcakes

It is always a big thing to me when someone chooses my goodies to be a part of their special occasion, more so when it's for a momentous event like their wedding day. A huge honor indeed for lil baker me :-) 

Made these 'Just Married' cupcakes as requested by Ms. Zati :-) Zati requested for Carrot Walnut & Lemon Cream Cheese cupcakes with some pink/purple color theme & I was more than happy to bake it for her. I've always have a soft spot for anything romantic like weddings, so you can imagine my excitement baking these goodies ;-)

Pink & Purple Theme 'Just Married' Cupcakes

My sincere thank you to Zati for choosing my goodies & for giving me the chance to be a part of her wedding day :-) I hope you & your hubby enjoyed the cupcakes ;-) A big congratulations to you, Nani & Arif :-) May both of you be blessed with lots of love & happiness always :-)

Something Simple

Orange Poppy Seed Cupcakes
With Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Hhhmmm....I really don't have much to 'talk' about this cupcake order because:-

1. I've lost ALL the photos in my hard-drive, which included these goodies :'( I'm just lucky to have found this one photo in my Facebook Page album to serve as your 'eye-candy' :-P

2. I don't see the point of 'talking' much when there's no photo to feast your eyes on...A post with no photos is one boring post! Don't you agree?

All I can say for this post is that these goodies were ordered by dear Miss Yong, not her real name but it's a name that I've grown accustomed to calling her :-) The word 'Yong' actually means 'big sister' in some northern part of Malaysia. He..he..Did I just managed to insert some language tutorial here? *chuckles*

Any way, Yong's order was for 50 pieces of Orange Poppy Seed Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting. She requested for a simple deco as it's for her family's gathering dessert pleasure :-)

It's always a pleasure baking for Yong & as always, I've enjoyed baking these goodies :-) Thank you Yong for your order & most of all, for your love & support :-) Hugs!

Well, I guess that's it for my very short post :-P Till next time, have a great day all! ✗o✗o

My Stiletto Experience :-)

Being a baker who have zero knowledge in cake baking & decorating, I rely purely on my passion to go though this cake journey of mine. Yes, I really know zilch about caking ( is there such a word? ) but that didn't stop me from dreaming that one day I'll be able to make good looking cakes with beautiful designs like those made by Peggy Porschen, Pink Cake Box or even Buddy the Cake Boss. What big dreams, huh? *blush* I know I have a longgggggggggggggg way ahead of me to even have a quarter of the talent that they have :-P Heck, I can't even ice a cake properly at the moment! :-P In all honesty, I know I might never be as good as any of them but as I'm really passionate with this hobby of mine, I guess I'll just try my utmost best doing what I love most ;-)

One cake design that I've always admire is shoe/stiletto theme cakes. I've seen so many beautiful shoe/stiletto cake designs around & had always wonder if I'm capable to ever come up with one :-P I'm dying to try making one but I have to admit that it's also one cake that's in my "I'm-so-scared-to-try-making-that-cake" list :-P Not only am I scared, I'm practically terrified to even make an attempt as I've no idea on how or where to start! Each time I thought of trying it out, I had to quickly push the idea aside as my heart start to beat faster & my hands go all sweaty! Sounds a bit melodramatic, I know...but that's how terrified I was! :-P

Then one fine day, came a call from Mr. Zul...He called me up to request for a stiletto theme cake to be presented to his-wife-to-be on their special day. Now, how can I say 'no' to that! I definitely wouldn't want to be the grouch who says 'No, I can't make that cake for you because I'm scared to make one', can I?!!

For daysssssss I had to peep talk myself & gain as much courage as I could muster into making the stiletto...Finally, after tonnes of trial & error, here's the result of it :-P

Red Velvet Cake With Lemon Cream Cheese

My sincerest of thanks to Zul for the opportunity & for trusting me enough to come up with your special cake. It was indeed an honor baking for you & your 'Shoe Queen' :-) Wishing both of you congratulations & may happiness follow you two wherever you go :-)

Well, that's the end of my first ever experience in making a stiletto cake...It may not be as perfect but one thing I do learn from this experience of mine is that no matter how terrified you are at making something, never let your fear stop you from even trying it. Just try as you'll never know what you'll be capable of ;-) As for myself, now that I've tried it, I definitely need to practice more ;-) After all, practice makes perfect, right?

I'm off for now...Thanks so much for sharing my experience & hope you've enjoyed my babbling :-P Hugs to all! ✗o✗o


Day in...day out...week in...week out...month in...month out...and whammm! It's already the new year! Gosh! Time flew by so fast & without even realizing it, I have unwillingly abandoned my blog :-( I'm so sorry for this. Trust me, I really feel bad about abandoning my blog. Not that it's my intention to do so but honestly, what with my baking commitments & running my daily life ( like a headless chicken, I might add! ), I wasn't able to 'steal' time long enough to sit down & update my post :-(  

Today I finally managed to clear my schedule & allocate some free time...So here I am - blogging! Yeayyy! :-) I hope every one is doing great & that the new year is treating you well. Ohhh! Is it too late to wish every one a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014? :-P Well, as they say, better late than never, right? *blushhhh* Any way, with all sincerity & from the bottom of my heart, I'm sending out much love & wishing each and every one of YOU a Happy New Year 2014! I pray that the new year will shower you with much love, good health & prosperity. I also would like to take this opportunity to convey my sincerest of thanks for all the love, support & encouragement that you, my goodies lovers, have blessed me with all these years. Your love means the world to me & I pray that I'll be lucky enough to have your continuous support :-) Thank YOU!

Okay, time for me to clear up my longggggggg overdue postssss that has been 'sitting' in my draft box, collecting dust! Yes, take note of the many 'ssssss' when I mention the word 'post' earlier - it's that many! :-P

First post to be out of my webby draft box is this Naked Red Velvet Cake that I had the honor to bake for sweet, Ms. Edur, whom ordered this for a bridal shower party :-) The bride-to-be happen to be a dear friend to us both, Ms. Tia :-) Errrr, here's the thing...This post is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy overdue that at the time I'm typing this, sweet Ms. Tia is already a happily married wife & a mom!
