3D Lightning McQueen

I really enjoyed carving this 3D Lightning Mc Queen Cake. Well, I managed to borrow one of my friend son's Lightning McQueen car toy as a sample. Still in wrappers when she gave it to me. She informed her son have too many Lightning McQueen Car for his last year birthday. This cake was 14 inches long, 8 inches wide, 4.5 inches in height.

Wedding Cake Competition Poster 2011

Last week I went to ICCA Dataran Sunway to buy some cutters for my sugar flowers. Before paying the bills the counter girl reminded me to register my name for the Wedding Cake Competition held on 30th September. I saw the poster for for the first time and I was surprised to see my cake design entry in 2010, is on the posters with others entries. Well maybe the organizer wanted to show the varieties of design produce by their students.

Last year's first prize is the one shown on the right bottom, bird cage and beautiful yellow gumpaste flowers. His skills is fantastic especially on the brush embroidery and the intricacy of the gumpaste flowers.

Peacock Cake

I received a call one day from a client requesting a peacock cake for her sister's engagement. Appointment was made and she sited a sample of peacock wedding cake in the Asadi Magazine. Even though she did not bring the picture but I had seen it before and still imprinted in my head. To do the peacock feathers was a bit of time consuming. 

She requested a three tiered cake and she wanted to bring it to Temerloh. I was quite apprehensive it will survive the journey. Nevertheless, I suggested a two tiered cake with different shape so it would still accentuate the peacock.

Overall I'm quite satisfied with the outcome, however the peacock body appeared a bit stiff and I should have painted the feathers on the body (brown ones) so there will be some dimension and texture.

While I was decorating the cake, it was raining, the fondant was quite soft due to high humidity.... things that should be straight seems crooked.

I Pad Cake

I make a small I Pad butter cake for Amir's and Farah's birthday - who unfortunately share the same birth date. The cake was for dessert after a heavy lunch.

Actually this cake was an experiment using airbrush technique on buttercream. I've yet to acquire the skills of controlling the amount of color discharged through the airbrush pen - well not bad for first attempt.

Teachers' Day Cake

Yes, another Teachers' Day,  a week before the date I have to schedule carefully, especially the delivery and storage. I have to reject all last minute orders even though from my closest friends - have to be firmed on this more "pujuk rayu", I need my beauty sleep. All orders requested for Chocolate Cake.... choc, choc, choc..........

Pillow Cake

This Pillow Cake was for an Engagement Hantaran that was held in Trengganu. I am really satisfied with the outcome of the overall finish product.

The light pink roses really compliment with the gold sheen pillow.   

Chocolate Cupcake - The Rose Bud

I just love to do rose bud on cupcake. It looks intricate yet not time consuming. The design is suitable if you receive large orders.

Multi-Colored Butter Cake

We do received a few request for a multi-colored layer butter cake or sometimes multi-colored or rainbow marble butter cake. Actually the taste is just a ordinary butter cake and usually will be iced with white buttercream.  

A thin layer of fruit preserve in between the cake will be applied so the cake won't slide and to keep the cake moist.

The finish product, I suppose when you cut the cake there's an element of surprise.

Chocolate Cake as Dessert

I received orders for a particular event wanted 10 boxes of chocolate cake for dessert. Each cake must be cut with a specific measurement. The baking and cutting the cakes were quite a breeze, however decorating the cake was an agony, I guessed due to the monotonous and repetitive actions, just like a robot........

Cake with Animal Figurine

A client e-mailed sketches of the cake with three animal figurine on the top of the cake. Quite a detail requirements, depicting the type of animals, colors, music instruments and type of cake. Wish all my clients are like him.......

Valentine Chocolate Cupcakes

For your information I still do cupcakes, only that, of late I seldom posted cupcakes because many of the designs were quite similar. As usual, during Valentine received many orders for chocolate cupcakes. However,  due to time constraint I had to be selective in taking orders. A few potential customers had ridiculous demand on the design that may be very time consuming. Below one of the Valentine Chocolate Cupcakes boxes.

Hantaran Cookies Bouquet

"Hantaran" means Gift in Malay. I done some researched and realized 40% of browsers who visited my blog were from outside Malaysia. Thank you for dropping by.

Back to the Cookies Bouquet - This Hantaran was for an Engagement that was held in Alor Star, Kedah, northern part of Peninsular Malaysia. Special packaging was done to avoid the cookies from dislodging from the stick.
