Ma, how old is my baby sister? Vierte always ask me this question, after getting a reply he would get one of my cake books and start to plan a party for Chloe. When I told him that Chloe is turning a month old he already had a cake in mind. Vierte grab my 50 Easy Party Cake by Debbie Brown book and showed me the design (and he does insist that it’s a ladybug not ladybird) with instructions that it should be a chocolate cake with dark chocolate icing. LittleMan V also deserve a thank you cake. He got a mini bug cake. I love you Kuya Vierte and Baby Chloe! Both of you make Mommy and Daddy happy.
I told my bride friend I’d post about the cake after I get a copy from the photographers but I just can’t wait any longer and have to share my latest achievement. I’ve been busy for the past month preparing for this cake. Yes it did took a long time to plan-look for the right flowers, baking pans and just the perfect cake recipe. Once I get the professional photos I’ll post more pictures with the cake recipe. For now, here is the latest cake (and my first wedding cake) from my kitchen.
C turned 33 last September 8 and we didn’t get to celebrate 😦 but I made him a basketball themed cupcake and cake that we shared among friends. His office big boss was in Dubai on his birthday week, he went home late to attend meetings and entertain guests who flew from Thailand and London. He instead had birthday dinner with them, to which V complained “Why no daddy? It’s night time and happy birthday today.” He’s not into big celebration for his birthday, and was even not too keen to bring the basketball themed cupcakes (above) in the office. “Ma why did you have to make yourself too busy forming fondant (he hates fondant) when all I wanted was plain chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing.” When he saw my sad face, “Love, I just don’t want you to get tired. Thank you for the cupcakes.” Yes, he’s appreciative and sweet that way. I also want to make the cupcakes pretty! Would it not be more odd if I designed a 33 y.o grown man’s …
Shiandra like almost every teen I know loves Justin Bieber. I searched the www for a JB inspired cake but didn’t find any that suits my fancy then I remembered that Ate Shin loves to read book as well. This is my first time to make a character out of fondant. I use Lorraine Mckay’s (of Extra Icing on the Cake) tutorial on female character. Underneath all that fondant is a yummy Moist Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache filling.
