I have been enjoying using this blog and seen quite good visits from so many places around the world. But as I need better feature to help improve my blog as well as expectation to increase traffic, I finally decided to move my blog to here.
I invite all of you who have been visiting me here to meet me again in my new blog and mentioning about me to your contacts as well.
Thank you for making me excited on meeting new 'friends' and see you at my new blog.
Btw - I will be closing this account in 5 weeks.

Ira & Patricks Groom Cake

This cake was the Groom Cake for a sister & brother's wedding on April 10th, 2010 (which happens to be the same date as our anniversary) in Seattle. The 'base' and the shoes were all made of "Lapis Surabaya" cake - a favorite wedding cake in Indonesia. The base cake was designed like a road complete with the white lines and I added the "man's colors" as accentuation for the sides. This was my second time trying to use edible spray paint (by PME) and it made the cake looks 'festive'. Wish one day I could get an airbrush paint set:).

April 2010

Here are the cakes I made last April.
The first one, the cupcakes for my son's 4th birthday with "Robot" theme edible paper. I just scanned pictures from his paper plate then print them on the edible paper with edible ink, then decorated them with two-colored frosting:)

The second one was for my friend's birthday and her friend. She is a Mary Kay's consultant and her friend (and also my friend) both love girly stuff. So I came up with the idea of 8" round cake topped with my friend's MK items and then decorate the cupcakes with girly stuff with pink and brown and pearl as the colors.

Harvest themed & Halloween cakes

"One October Eve in Fun Family Farm"

Though we don't observe/celebrate Halloween, it is a festivity where candies and sweets are a must, therefor people would want to see and order for Halloween-themed cakes/cupcakes. So, here are two versions of my 'Fall' cakes; all are cupcakes. One part was regular cupcakes and the others was "pull-apart" cupcake. Perhaps I'd say 75% to 80% credit goes to my beloved hubby and son who have always been there to help me preparing the cakes and "helped" me with making the decorations.
The pull-apart cupcakes was about a farm in October, ready for corns and pumpkins harvest, that's why I gave title "One October Evening in Fun Family Farm". The other one is just "One Spooky Halloween Night", where I put decorations of spiders on their webs, cute mini ghosts, jack-o-lanterns and bats flying in the night with the moon as the backdrop.
If you have any question, feel free to leave message or send me e-mail, pls. Thank you!!

August 2009 Cake

A Cake made for a friend's daughter's birthday, who is so into the "Twilight" movie. She googled online of an idea of the cake for the birthday and she gave me a picture and from there, not wanting to make a copy of someone's creativity and wanting my way, I made this cake; to fulfill her request and yet I don't have to make an identical cake with other's.

Anyway - I didn't really feel I was doing my best as we're in the process of selling our house and that requires the house to stay tidy and meticulous all the time, which means "creativity is killed and freedom is supressed". Constant cleaning after one bit of a work (to avoid mass mess which would require longer time to clean), since there have been people seeing the house. Ugh!... tired and sleepless because of this. I love doing cake as much as doing painting and sewing, so it bothers me to 'rush' myself with creativity.

Anyway - despite my disappointment of the final result (I wanted it to be perfectly, meticulously done), the birthday girl loved it and it was such a blessing to see her happy.

I really pray that we will be able to sell the house so we can move to a new-bigger house with an extra area that will be transformed into my studio; for painting, sewing and even will make a commercial kitchen in there. So I won't have to worry of messing up my house because of my art work. Yes, I hate to see messy house and I always want to see kitchen and all throughout the house clean and in order:)

Here is the picture of the cake. Technicality: the cake was white sponge cake with home-made raspberry jam (not mine but my friend's home-made jam). The chess pieces, the apple, ribbons all are made of fondant-gum paste mix. The flower is gum paste.

Practice Makes Perfect

Doesn't this remind you of Woodstock Rock Festival 1969 - the flowers generation?:)

My first practise of tiered cake with fondant-gum paste roses

... and my first princess-doll cake practise

Spring and Late Valentine's Cupcakes

There are two shapes of this version of "cupcake"; round and square. I used a sponge cake recipe from an old recipe book bought from the Library clearance and the filling was my home-made jam. Coated with quick-pour fondant icing recipe found from my wilton cake ideas' book then covered them outside with fondant. I brought this for the March women's fellowship. I was totally missed the February fellowship so I decided to mix the late Valentine's Day's celebration with the early "Spring welcome" by making these cute cupcakes. I heard from some of the sisters that they loved the cake look that they didn't dare to eat theirs:)...
