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!

Chocolate cupcakes with choc lava filling and white vanilla buttercream frosting for Drama Mama and hubby.

It was an SOS call late one evening from Bai, who would be celebrating her wedding anniversary the next day. 

Well Bai, you were this close to sounding like a Desperate Housewife, you know. That's why I didn't have the heart to say no to her request. Although she initially asked for buttercream roses (a technique of which I've yet to master - shame on me), I have to replace that request with these red gum paste flowers I got from a nearby bakery supplies shop when at the last minute, my red butter cream couldn't really hold it's shape well. The second batch of buttercream I made didn't turn out the exact shade that I want, so scrap it. Store-bought gum paste roses to the rescue!

Delivering the cupcakes to her home high up on the hills in Sg. Ara was a different adventure altogether. Well, as the saying goes, you'll never get lost in the streets of Penang. 

A good thing none-the-less, coz I've always wanted to meet the pretty Drama Mama and her son Irfan. Akhirnya, sampai jugak hasrat, walaupun sekejap cuma. Eceh!

Happy 3rd Anniversary to Bai & Amin, and of coz the little cheeky Irfan too :) Thank you so much for the order. Next time ada pasai nak order jangan lupa calling-calling Anne ok?

p/s: Oh yeah, Bai is the founder of Twinky Winky Stars. Check out her blog to see her excellent creations.
