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!

Uploading the last photo of Yana's hantaran cake. This was a huge heart shaped cake, orange butter cake, filled with vanilla buttercream filling & finished with fresh cream. The fondant heart shaped deco was supposed to be hard, made a few days earlier, but at the last minute, turned soft & gooey when it rained the night before the day of delivery. My solution was to use cardboard cutouts and stick the fondant shapes together to form the firm shapes.

Sometimes you just gotta cheat, but as long as you declare & clarify to your customer, there shouldn't be a problem.

I couldn't trace the original design which Yana sent to me, so if you've seen this design elsewhere, do me a favour and notify me please.
