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!

What does these cupcakes remind you of?

If you answer that they *almost* look like the flowers in my blog background, then my friend, you're a winner!

The colour combination of autumny green and subtle pink is my inspiration for these cupcakes which I made for Kak Aiza's kenduri tahlil two Saturdays ago, but tried as I might, I still got a little off, didn't I? Made the colour a deep shade of maroon coz I want a colour that stand out (maroon is a gorgeous fall colour, dontcha think?) but I think I didn't get the shade of green that I planned. Mixed some yellow and green but too much yellow is seen here.

After a frantic search for the perfect box at a few baking supplies shops with Kak Aiza a few days before the event, I'm glad I found this lovely butterfly box at A to Z, the wedding supplies store in Seberang Jaya.

I had fun with my daughter when I was preparing the beautiful boxes for the cupcakes. I finished my baking project quite late, and woke up early to pack the cupcakes in the boxes. I also had to pack soe bahulus for my Mom coz coincidentally we were gonna have our own kenduri tahlil that morning.

I hope the guests appreciate my labour of love and would be gobsmacked at how delicious those lemony snickett's cupcakes are.
