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 I received another email from Sam inquiring about a cake for her pet's birthday, complete with a sample photo, I almost fell off my chair! Not that I think it's a silly request or anything, I just find it too funny and so unbelievable, that someone actually trusted me with such confidence.

Initially Sam wanted a Pomeranian figurine on top of her cake, but with my limited skill, this is the best that I could come up with. A figurine of a toy mouse that Tobey used to have. 

Isn't she gorgeous? Sam has a very big heart and was a very nice customer. And look how sweet Tobey is? He barked madly at me the first time I went to Sam's house, I'm surprised at how small he really is. He sounded like a BIG dog!

It's an 8 inch cake covered in home-rolled fondant. Yes, I made the fondant myself! The flavour of the cake was peaches and cream. I baked the extra batter into a smaller cake pan, and tried it myself. I must say the cake was very moist and delicious, I couldn't stop eating it!

Thank you Sam & sorry for the bad spelling, hehe.
