Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year everyone!!!
Hope it'll be a good year for all...

Been pretty busy lately.. All the Xmas, New Year celebration... Really in holidaying mood....Haha...

Recently just finished off with a batch of cupcakes and tiramisu for a close friend.
He's having a post Xmas and New Year celebration with his bunch of friends and wanted tiramisu and some cupcakes for his party.

Made a box of tiramisu and some mini oreo cheese cupcakes and Rum & raisins cupcakes for the party.

Besides for the party itself, he wanted to give a cupcake to each of his guest as a "thank you" gift...
Did some DIY to the off the shelves boxes to make them more presentable..
Here are what the guests are bringing back, Chocolate Blueberry cupcake with Dark chocolate ganache.

Hope everyone enjoys the cakes!!

R.I.P. Raj

Out for early breakfast with couple of collegues this morning..
While waiting, received an sms from sp..
The message said that the security guard we know as Raj passed away in the guard room.. Kind of taken aback on this news.. Someone whom I've know for the past 10 years or so had suddenly left..
Few days back we were still teasing him with his new haircut.. whistling at him and calling him handsome... Joking with him, offering him tibits.. And now, he's gone..
He's been tormented with kidney failure for these couple of years, all the poking of needles into his hand, the dialysis he needs to go thru every other day has never made him an unhappier person.. Infact he has been pretty positive about everything..
He's been a very kind man (at least that's how I felt).. Whenever I stay late alone the office, he'll call me now and then to check if I'm doing fine in the office, asking me not to stay too late..
Rest in peace brother.. Bye..

Valentine's Day

Made these for someone.. Intended to give them to him on the V day..
I had a box of cake mix with me, so, instead of using my own recipe, I gave the cake mix a try..
End result?
Even my not so picky brother says the cupcakes are not nice.. hahaa...
I din even wanted to taste them... whhahahhahaha...
So, I just had them decorated (too late to make another batch of my own recipe), pictures taken and showed them to him instead.. hehehe...
The toppers were made by myself... Cute???
I think so.. Do you?? Hahahhahaha....

Oreo Cheesecake

Haven't been updating my blog for soooooooo long...
After Christmas, I've been pretty busy.. Work.. everything...
Didn't even have the energy to bake... haha...

The only time I've baked after Christmas was this.. Oreo Cheesecake for baby's birthday... Wanted to decorate the cake.. But I was too lazy and tired to move my fingers to do the decoration...Haha...

Luckily he liked the cake, said he liked it heart shaped and its tasty....
Haha... He better liked it...

Actually I was all enthu to participate in the Butterfly themed cupcake contest organized by Zalita...
Who knows.. I was so busy (ok... a little on the lazy side also) that I didn't have the time to do it.. I actually had the shape of the butterfly shaped out with sugar paste (2 days before the closing day)..
Just when I wanted to decorate it... it broke into two!!! =(

Pre Xmas Party order!!

VC is having a pre Xmas party on 1 December 2007. He placed an order for 30 cupcakes and a Tiramisu with me!!
He gave me the room to decide on the flavors of the cupcakes and decoration..
Cracked my head on what flavors to make...there's so many options and so many I want to do...
Finally decided on:
1. Rum & Raisin Cupcake with Rum Swiss Meringue Butter Cream
2. Strawberry Cupcake with Raspberry Swiss Meringue Butter Cream
3. Blueberry Chocolate Cupcake with Rich Chocolate Swiss Meringue Butter Cream

Next.. how shall I decorate the cupcakes??!!!
These are what I came up with!!

"Xmas Tree" is Rum & Raisin Cupcake with Rum Swiss Meringue Butter Cream.
"Teddy wants pressie for Xmas" is Strawberry Cupcake with Raspberry Swiss Meringue Butter Cream.
"Snowy & his Candy Cane" is Blueberry Chocolate Cupcake with Rich Chocolate Swiss Meringue Butter Cream.

Made purple stars (with sugar paste) for the Xmas Tree Cupcake deco as VC said the color theme for his Xmas Tree this year is Purple & Pink.. So, to suit his color theme, I had the stars done in purple!!

As appreciation for his support, I made some cupcakes and had them individually boxed (boxes personally made by me!! haha..) for each of his guests to bring home after the party...

Hi there!! I'm back!!
Been ages since my last entry.. =p

Made tiramisu today... This time, a different style from what I usually make..
The previous ones I made usually comes in the container.
This time round I want to make something that looks more like a "cake"..haha..

Here you go!!

I like my tiramisu with that strong liquor taste... Added a lot of Marsala wine to the mascarpone cheese... so...sorry kiddos, this dessert is not suitable for you guys...hahaha....
