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!

When Ieda ordered some cupcakes for a friend's engagement and requested for a brown theme, I was quite stumped. I've done a combination of brown and gold before for her and I didn't want to recycle the same idea. 

A quick search on the net confirmed the existence of something I've seen before. Brown roses, the best kept secret in the world of roses. According to here, these roses come in a wide-range of tones and shades, from russet, to café au lait and from smoky to iced tea. Brown roses are known to have masculine appeal, so since this set of cupcakes are from the groom's/men's side, I think brown roses paired with some blue would be suitable.

Brown roses symbolizes warmth, intimacy and stability.  I think the colour of the rose looks deliciously chocolatey, as opposed to other conventional colours like red and pink that look too pretty to be eaten.

Flavour of the cake was  cookies and cream - oreo chocolate cupcake with a mix of chocolate and vanilla buttercream.

Thank you so much for Ieda, my number 1 customer,  for the order. I do hope Yusri and Huda love your thoughtful gift for them.
