Cupcakes Baking And Decorating Workshop - Mom In Action

Upon request, we include baking in our latest workshop at our studio. I drag mom to be my co-tutor as she bakes better than me, :)

Since we were very small, mom started to bake butter, sponge and chiffon cakes to feed her little ducklings - me and two younger brothers. Cupcakes had yet to be 'invented' at that time. To entice us, mom would slice the cake into small pieces and sprinkled with choc chips, raisins or smarties.

Today, kids are luckier to have these little cakes baked in small cups. Mom has since turned into baking cupcakes for her grandchildren. See, she can really bake beautifully!

I started to decorate cupcakes in 2008.

I sold out my very first set of cupcakes in April 2009. I had a sort of strange feeling -- a mixture of joy and contentment I guessed when I collected the payment from my client and looked at her smile.

I knew I should continue to bake, decorate and bring joy to the neighbourhood then.


These are parts of our students' work. I always believe everyone can bake and decorate. I tell my students so. Their work don't have to be perfect to touch the heart of whoever receives their handmade cupcakes.

It's the love channelled into the making of each cupcake that matters.

There is always joy to see the fruit of your own hard work.


When the cupcakes are presented to your loved ones.......tee hee.....

If you're interested to join the fun too, please check out our  Workshop  section for latest schedule. Thanks.

Anis Wedding Cake - A Wonderful Experience

Still remeber Anis from Kertas Puteh? She ordered her mom and dad's birthday cakes from me and now her own wedding cake. Mom and I am so touched with her support.

Anis is a designer herself, I guess so, hahah, her creations are simple, clean and yet leaving a lasting impact. I like them very much!

It was always a challenge for me to fulfill her requirement in cake decoration, ha! Luckily she used to give me a clear reference on the cake she wanted. The cakes she like are clean with minimal colour combination, looked simple but not really in implementation, just like this wedding cake with 3 tiers of plain white body and a huge ball of ribbon roses in purple shades on top.

So much queries on my head:

Firstly, purple food colour faded and changed to bluish when exposed to sunlight. So, I could't use the colour directly but to mix blue and red to obtain purple.

Secondly, the white body square cakes, I needed to make sure they were clean with sharp edges.

Thirdly, the big ball! It was my first time doing a flower ball in fact, how would I stick the flowers on it? How big the ball should be? How many pieces of ribbon roses should I prepare?

Then, there was a rainbow cake in purple shades hiding inside the bottom tier, hahah! Challenge to mom who baked the cake, can she manage to get the shade for the batter prepared? Would the shade remain after being baked?

Last but not least, would the flower ball survive during transport? Should I set up the cake on the spot?

My ultimate query would be "SHOULD I ACCEPT THE ORDER?"

Aha! You know the answer by now.

Yes, I had accepted it and presented the cake on Anis' big day at MPSP Hall, Butterworth in time! :)

I'm glad that mom and I learned so much from the preparation, we had progressed further for sure!

A big thank to Anis for giving us the opportunity!

Wish you a wonderful marriage life ahead and blessed with lotsa love!

(Look at Anis in her lacy light purple wedding gown, how lovely she is......)

3D Winnie The Pooh & Friends Hunny Pot Fondant Birthday Cake

Ever popular cartoon characters, Winnie The Pooh and friends. Is it too common as a design of children birthday cake? No, I don't think so. Their popularity never drops, just like Mickey and Minnie, they are forever green characters of Disney.

For 1 year old or 1st birthday, Winnie The Pooh characters are one of the favourites in our list of request. What we need to do is to make the cake looks different from one cake to another. The idea of hunny pot just came in time when I got the chance to do 4 characters of them, hope you like it. The cake was delivered to Jelutong, Penang.

Eeyore is licking the honey drop actually, oops, you can't see the tongue from the side.

Buzz...Pooh is trying to chase away the bee resting on Tigger's head, what a good friend she is.

Hey, Piglet is too cute to be true while staring at us, hahah! I like him particularly.
