For her romantic parents

This love shape red velvet cake was made for my friend, Faizah, for her romantic parents on their 28th Wedding Anniversary. I purposely chose ivory color for the whole cake board cover to bring out the sweetness in her (for such sweet thoughts for her parents on their special day!) and to make the roses stand out! The maroon roses were made with her Mom in my thoughts as she gave me a hint that the Mom loves maroon! And the cake board was decorated with patchwork garden theme as her father loves  gardening.

Selamat Hari Ulang Tahun
Perkahwinan ke-28
Kami sayang Mak & Abah

The plaque reads: Happy 28th Wedding anniversary. We love you, Mom & Dad

And see how romantic her parents were!

Castle Cake, Sugar Cookies and Cuppies for Ikin

Happy Birthday Ikin
Today (17th August) is Ikin's 8th birthday. Somehow this cute little girl has a special place in my heart. I made this Castle Cake especially for her. Thank you to CakeJournal Tutorial on how to make this gorgeous jaw dropping cake and made Ikin a very happy girl on her birthday!

I took 3 days and 2 nights to finish the cake and knew that it was a bit challenging (but can do done) to deliver happiness to a small girl!

 And the accompanying Cupcakes with a little crown topper!

Football cake

This order came in in the last week of the fasting month. It came from a lawyer friend in a nearby town called Muar. It is about 70km away from where I live. And I gladly accepted this order for friendship sake!

And I made Vanilla-Lemon butter cake with Lemon Butter Cream frosting and covered the cakes with fondant. It was a bit tricky to cover the whole ball with fondant as there were actually two different sizes of shapes used for the ball, hexagon and a five sides shapes!

Thank you Khirin Nisa for giving me an opportunity to do this cake! :-) 

Happy Birthday Syahril & Mohd Naqiyuddin

Maroon and Cream

These were ordered by Ms Azrin for her younger sister's engagement on 30th May, 2013. She asked for maroon colored roses and pink and cream color filler flowers. The cake is Red Velvet. I made 16 of these and a plaque.

May our engagement be
the beginning of a lifetime
dream filled with special
love and happiness!
 This time, the wordings are different from those traditional "Mr So and Miss So, Happy Engagement Day" or "Mr So and Ms So, congratulations on your Engagement!". Azrin indicated that she does want something unusual different from the normal greetings. And I couldn't think of anything more apt than these romantic quote/wordings!  

Thank you, Azrin!

 And to see that big smile on her face when she saw these, is priceless! I really hope that the sister likes this design!

Thank you so much for your support, Azrin!
