I was crazy to attempt this cake design. It was for a farewell. Nobody asked, just tot i give it a shot.. and didn't think it'll turn up this great! (haha.. pardon my self-complement, but it took me a while to figure out this cake, and sleepless nites to get it done.. so i deserve a lil credit for my effort :))
The Lenotre restaurant (our venue for the farewell party) won't allow outside cake to be brought in, so I wrapped it nicely as a prezent, in theme with the night- Polkas!
So there's 1 LV Monogram trunk, 1 LV damier luggage, 1 Chanel luggage and a travel Celine.. all made by hand (including the imprints! yeah.. i was that crazy! Many thanks to Myra's ruler ;)
Farewell Zakiah! Sure glad you enjoyed the luxurious cake. :)
It's February and I just realized i didn't get the chance to bake my now 14months old boy a cake for his first birthday. Since some frens are coming over for breakfast, I decided to bake some cuppies just for Maqeel. For photo-memory-wise.
It has been long since I baked any cuppies. For my son's Aqiqah (which was a join venture with another 2 families) I've decided to contribute tiny lil cuppies. This time I tried to escape from my normal recipe of chocolate moist cuppies to Red Velvets'. Yes.. I now admits, red velvets are one of my favourites recipe :)
Believe it or not this Barbie cake is for the 24 years old Lina... made specially on request by a friend as she was super curious to learn.. Hope both the pelajar, and the birthday girls are super happy.
Presenting my first graduates: Ms.Shafna and Ms. Ameera on 18th of March 2010.

The two have enjoyed their time with all different techniques of decoration, using both buttercream and fondant. Check out their admirable products~ Thank you again for joining the class, may your skills develops with time and experience! Happy cupping!!
Hi all.. lately few people has been asking me to do a class on cupcake deco. I am very keen to conduct it, but need to know who else is there to join me? Please email me if you are interested, might do a class on 17th, 18th and 19th of March 2010.
My very first 2 tier cake. Learnt the technique from youtube, why does it look so simple in their video, yet it was so darn hard to do?!! I guess practice make perfect.. anyway, happy birthday Natalia, hope you love your cake.
Here comes another challenge from Nanie! - Barney & Friends cuppies and Barney 3D cake!! To tell you the truth, I'm kinda proud of myself, didn't think I could make 'em until now! Happy Birthday to the 3 years old Rania!!
Since I wont be able to bake the infamous Sarawak's Layered cake for Doha peeps for this coming Eid, I tot I'd share one of the best recipe that I've tried (and agreed by many as super yummilicous) complete with some guidance on how to bake. Hopefully you'll enjoy trying it on your own.. here goes;
The Recipe: Ninja Turtle layered cake
15 eggs (gred A) 380g of fine sugar 380g of flour 80g of corn flour 230g of instant milk powder 500gm of butter 1 tablespoon of ovalette 1 tablespoon of butter essence (in my case, i replace it with vanilla essence)
::The How To:: Bowl A
Beat the egg till fluffy, add in sugar, and beat well.
Put in ovallete, mix well.
Add in corn flour, instant milk powder and flour and mix well with low speed.
In a different bowl (bowl B), beat the butter till fluffy. (It is important to beat the butter separately to ensure a super-moist end product ;) )
Once the butter is fluffy enough, add into bowl A. Mix well then add in butter essence.

Now, divide the batter into 4 different bowls of a same size. On each bowl, add in your own prefered colour, in my case; blue, red, yellow and chocolate (i use chocolate emulco; to add a sense of chocolate taste) Use a 9" x 9" tray, cut out a grease paper to fit. Then smoothen some butter onto the inner surface. Next, take a spoonful of the chocolate batter and put one on every corner and lay them around the tray like picture below;
Bake in a pre-heated oven (Top flare only). As far i as learned, it is recommended to use a gas oven rather than electric, and there's no telling on how long to expect for each layer to be done. What i did is, i'd see if the layer's surface is thicken and is not bounchy, then it is done.. (this is why it is better to go through practical class than reading through simple manual like mine.. hehe). But for those who already familiar on how to bake layered cake, this shouldn't be a problem after all~ ;) One useful tips when using gas oven is to put some water in a heat-resistance bowl while baking in it; to prevent over-heating and to maintain moisture. Keep on layering and baking for each alternate colours until you reach the top tray. Well.. to tell you the truth the ninja-turtle part is when you make a diagonal layer of each colour at the middle of the cake; so you'll end up with a beautiful designed-layered cake; which I completely ignored, as for me, the taste that mattered.. hehe.
Now, go ahead and try it for this coming Eid, and see if you enjoy it as much as i did. Good luck!
