About The Baker

Just me, my girl, my spatula & my beat-up old Lumix. It's my happy face, and this is my happy place.


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!

I've been dying to announce my latest cupcake flavour, but I keep putting it off coz (1) I couldn't find or didn't have the time to look for a real rose for my photo session and (2) I was feeling uninspired to give it a smashing name.

Well, look no more. As soon as I saw that movie trailer starring that Gyllenhaal dude (I can never look at him the same way again since Brokeback Mountain), I stuck a hideous gum paste flower on my frozen cupcake and just get on with it.

Rosewater and pistachio cupcake with rosewater frosting. Rosewater and pistachio are widely used in Persian and Turkish desserts such as baklavas and sholeh-zard.

Forgive me, but I just have to show how the insides look like. It's still very moist even after being frozen for more than a week.

The rosewater taste is quite mild. I'll probably have to add more rose essence to enhance the flavour, since pure and truly fragrant rosewater is hard to come by.

So yeah, this flavour is highly recommended for those who are sick and tired of chocolates already (yours trulylah tu... siapa lagi)
