Merry Christmas! It's nearly the end of 2014 and Meg's Pastry Studio is officially closed for the year!
has been a fulfilling year, never expected to receive a steady stream
of cake orders throughout the year. Well, not really a lot, but at a
comfortable pace that I can handle confidently.
thanks to all my customers and friends, some of them even ordered cakes
repeatedly. Really appreciate the trust, given that I'm just a homebaker
without any retail shopfront. Nevertheless, I make sure that the
ingredients I used are of quality and no preservatives or additives are
For the final quarter of the year, besides the
ever-popular rainbow cake and ombre cake, I had orders for chocolate
cake as well. At the moment, I'm only baking the super rich, dense and
heavy Valrhona Chocolate Cake. Hopefully I could explore more recipes
next year and come up with a light, tender and moist chocolate cake; and
also other types of cakes.
Looking forward to a brand
new year ahead! Please continue to support Meg's Pastry Studio! For
orders and enquiry, please drop me an email at email@example.com.
largest size (in terms of area) of cake that I'm able to bake, this was
5 layers (can go up to 7 layers or more). Rainbow-coloured vanilla
sponge cake with chantilly frosting, sandwiched and topped with assorted
looking cake ordered by a loving mum for her daughter's birthday
celebration. A 5-layer ombre vanilla shortcake, decorated with lots of
marshmallows and ribbons.
chocolate cake ordered by the same mum who ordered the marshmallow
ribbon cake. This cake was for their private celebration and birthday
girl requested chocolate cake. Did rosette piping to make the cake look
by a friend who requested for "Minecraft" theme cake. After researching
on various versions of "Minecraft" cake, came up with this version.
Basically put together with 3 layers of chocolate cake and white
chocolate buttercream tinted green and brown.
by son's Childcare Centre Director for one of the teacher's wedding
celebration. Made a chocolate cake with white chocolate buttercream and
piped rosettes for a pure and romantic look.
For a friend's daughter one-year old birthday. The cake fitted just nicely with the party decorations put up by my friend.

birthday. Proposed the chocolate cake with rosettes. This time the
rosettes were tinted in 3 gradual shades.
Ever-popular rainbow lychee cake.
fruit shortcake ordered by my Uni/hostel friend, for her housewarming
cum christmas party. Decorated with some simple store-bought christmas
My friend also ordered a Sticky Date and Toffee Bundt cake, which was very apt for Christmas.
final 3 orders for the quarter, Christmas log cakes. Hadn't intended to
bake but 2 of my customers asked if I could bake any Christmas cakes.
So came up with something simple and elegant. Vanilla genoise sponge
with chantilly cream frosting and decorated with some christmas decor.
Thank you to everyone for all the support given! See you next year :)
