Assalamualaikum & Hello everyone!

It has been a hectic few months for me, so forgive me for not updating much on this blog. Truth is, it's easier to make updates via Facebook and a lot of customers reach me through FB too. The picture albums there are more organized, so head over there for much easier viewing of my previous work, OK.

Now, I've never mentioned it here, but I can also provide special dietary cakes and cupcakes. So if you're in Penang and looking for something vegan (eggless & dairy-free) or gluten-free (no flour) or sugarless/sugar-free, do shoot me an email and we'll talk.

Deliveries to Penang Island and surrounding areas is still available, but due to rising costs, I'll have to increase the delivery charge. You would understand, right? The fuel, time, energy, not to mention, vehicle maintenance, and the worst of all, traffic jams - they can just zap you dry :)

Hugs & kisses to all my loyal customers. Love you guys lots!

If you don't know me by now..... you will never never never know me... ooohhh...

OK, you can quit dreaming now.

As I mentioned, it's exciting to finally have a paying customer for my cupcakes (well, if you don't count the ones I sold last Sunday). However, it was a last minute confirmation and I had only 1 day ahead to prepare the order.

Fortunately, my auntie (hah? your aunty if your 1st customer? what a joke!) doesn't really like fancy shcmancy designs and let me have full creative control. Phew, what a relieve. If not, berpeluh jugak.

This time, I opted Red Velvet Cupcake for her daughter Farah's birthday (my cousin lah tu!). I've always wanted to try the popular and classic American favourite, but of course at that time I was quite obsessed with my pursuit of the Great Vanilla Cupcake Experiment, so that plan was always put on hold.

The recipe that I tried wasn't really up to my standard - the batter was too scant and runny, resulting in messy drips on the souffle cups. It didn't rise well too, but the texture was really rich and moist. Lovely red colour, full bodied chocolate flavour (as I used Van Houten chocolate). I will try and look for a better recipe. It's really a shame if I didn't put this flavour in my menu.

Still lots of yumminess in there.

Especially coupled with the cream cheese frosting. To... die... for.

Hope that Farah and her *selected* friends like my cuppies. On a side note, eh girls as early as 9 ada clique-clique eh now? Like my auntie said, "Jangan jadi Mean Girls sudah!"

This weekend, I'll step up and come up with better looking cuppies, I promise.

Now, let's sambung nyanyi!

*puts on floppy hat & curly red wig* Say you love me all around the world...


  1. There's always the first Anne and normally the first tu la yang most memorable. You'll do just fine. In fact, you are already in your cruise mode. Don't forget to wave at me when you pass by k.

  2. haha, i love the word, cruise mode. Insya-allah, i'm so happy to get great feedback from my aunty, saying that this is the best one she had so far (she has tasted all of my cuppy flavours).

    wiz, you think i can ligan (kejar u issit?) i'm sooo far behind! am oogling at your cakes and thinking i can never come up with those beauties.
