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!

Farhan's Pororo Friends!

I almost forgot about this cake! For Kak Niza's baby boy, Farhan. So many things went wrong while making this cake. Firstly, I had a bad case of flu and was feeling kinda woozy. I accidentally spilled the cake batter, and I ran out of cocoa powder to make another batch. Disaster! At the last minute, I changed the cake from a chocolate orange cake to an orange butter cake with orange filling and chocolate ganache, hoping that it could still be a jaffa cake. 

Thankfully, Kak Niza didn't mind the change, but I later found out from her that I accidentally used mango filling instead of orange filling! OK, I admit I couldn't tell the difference from the smell since my nose was stuffy. But I'm pretty sure I bought orange filling, as written on the plastic container. How the fillings got switched, I only discovered some time later when I went back to the cake supplies store and saw how both the orange & mango filling looked so much alike @-@

Must have been a funky new flavour, orange butter cake, mango filling & chocolate ganache!
