Hello Kitty Cuppies!

I was finally given the chance to be creative for a 1 year old's birthday. Pink and Hello Kitty came to mind right away. After I confirmed the theme, I found out that the birthday party theme was Hello Kitty! What a coincidence isn't it? :)

All of the toppers were handmade with fondant. For the hello kitty topper, I used an edible black pen to create the eyes and whiskers. The bow and nose were made out of fondant and brushed with a little edible dust to give it a little sparkle. For the birthday greeting I embossed the fondant before I stuck on the lettering for the greeting.

The flavour was a double chocolate chip base with vanilla icing on top coloured with a light rose pink. The result? Sweet and delightful!

Happy Birthday Keira!

A Frangipani Birthday!

It was my cousin's mum's birthday recently and she requested for my red velvet cupcakes. Her mum's favourite colour is peach so I incorporated the colour into the cream cheese frosting.

I went cupcake crazy last week as I discovered two wonderful fabulous baking supply shops! There's Toko Ani and Titan and it was pretty much baking Disneyland for me. The amount of supplies was endless and I even bought 5kg worth of fondant! I now have plenty of fondant to practice with. :)

I have to say it was fun making fondant toppers, I haven't had time to take classes so I've just been learning off the internet. The frangipanis were challenging and took me quite a while but I have to say it turned out pretty decent. I even hand made the flower greeting out of fondant and silver dragees. There's definitely still room for improvement. :)

Happy Birthday Aunty! Hope you enjoyed the cupcakes as much as I enjoyed making it. :)

Merdeka Day Orders!

Hello all!

My indo national day was a cupcake full of a day as I had 6 dozen cupcakes to bake not to mention in five different flavours!

A good friend of mine wanted 5 dozen for a tasting and a dozen was for my father in law to bring to Bogor for the death anniversary of his mother. Let's hope grandma approved my baking from heaven. :)

Here are some pics from my busy day!

My First Baptism Cupcakes

My family and I had a lovely Saturday. It was also the day my future sister in law was baptised into the Catholic Church.

As a gift I offered to make her cupcakes to celebrate this wonderful occasion. She requested for my strawberry cuppies after she saw the photos online. The other cupcakes were red velvet with cream cheese frosting and coloured with Lily's favourite colour Lilac.

As for the little edible flowers on top, I made it myself. Yes I finally attempted to make something from fondant and though its small, it was a definitely a huge step for me. It's all a learning process. :)

As you can see from the photos, she's one happy lady!

Congrats snowball!

Happy Birthday Tobias!

This post goes way back to the month of May!

It was my secretary's son's 3rd birthday and I offered to make him cupcakes for him to bring to school. His favourite flavour is chocolate so of course I tripled the choc dosage with a double chocolate chip base and chocolate butter cream on top.

His favourite theme is Power Rangers but unfortunately I couldn't find any toppers in the store (I've yet to master the art of fondant figurines :p) so we settled for Garfield.

Hope you enjoyed it Tobi!

Red velvet cupcakes is a flavour I can never get sick of. The delicious base along with a cream cheese icing is just pure heaven on your taste buds. My sister in law is a big fan of this flavour! Top it off with fresh strawberries and you are good to go.

Chocolate and Strawberry Delights!

Hello all!!

I've been missing in action tending to motherhood duties. Everything is more settled now and I'm finally back in cupcake mode!

This order was made for my dear friend Marlin. She wanted to surprise her boys with some yummy treats and what couldn't be better then chocolate and strawberry cupcakes!

I made a basic chocolate base with chocolate butter cream and added rainbow sprinkles for some colour and fun. The strawberry cupcake was made with a vanilla base and strawberry butter cream. I added fresh pureed strawberries to my butter cream with no preservatives or flavouring. It tastes absolutely sweet and fresh!
