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!

The Pretty Cake That Could (well, almost!)

This is the cake that almost didn't make it... Atikah placed an order for this hantaran cake on behalf of her mom who wanted to give it as a present to a friend whose daughter was getting married (huh? come again?)

I wasn't in the best of health to finish decorating the cake. After failing the second time to cover the cake while battling a hazy, fuzzy, flu-medication-induced mind, I turned to a good friend, Kak Tun to help me this one time while I had to settle my other deliveries.
I'm not ashamed to give credit when it is due..

But that's a very nice bouquet of flowers, right? Atikah requested the same cake from a photo she emailed me and I was more that happy to oblige. But of course I didn't make those flowers myself. I ordered them from Kak Linda from the famous Kaori Cake. I'm so inspired to learn make these flowers myself. One day, Insya-Allah... I've already taken my first step, finally got my hands on those gumpaste modeling tools. Bought them at Mr. DIY at the fraction of its original price!

Thank you Atikah & her mom for your trust in my cake... well, of course I baked that cake. It was vanilla cake with blueberry filling and covered in vanilla buttercream. That credit goes to me :D
