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 I actually never thought would happen when I started this blog is - BACKLOG!

I'm still in the autumnal mood, so when Ieda, again trusted me whole-heartedly to make cupcakes for her sis-in-law's wedding with cream & brown theme, you bet I was more than glad to come up with my interpretation if the autumn colours.

I made a terrible mistake which shall serve a grim reminder for me next time I take orders that include people's name on the cuppies. The groom's name was supposed to be 'NAIN' (stands for Dzulkarnain) but when I was on the YM with Ieda, I wrote down the name as 'Naim'. I'm terrible sorry Ieda, thank goodness you were able to repair my mistake!

The roses and ready made ones as I think they'd survive the travel to Negeri Sembilan.  They're still a little wet from the gold coloring that I brushed on them

Ieda's choice of cake is moist chocolate with chocolate and vanilla buttercream. I added something extra special, melted chocolate filling! The cupcakes were delivered Thursday morning but the wedding wasn't until Sunday, so I hope the cake are OK. I was really worried that they cakes wouldn't last till Sunday so I told Ieda to refrigerate the cupcakes in an airtight tupperware, which I normally wouldn't suggest to customers (they should be eaten immediately!)

However, some of the leftover cupcakes from the same batch that I kept in my fridge still tasted yummy & moist yesterday, so I hope it's all good!
