Wow wow wow. Half a year gone past just like that!
again the past three months have been busy busy busy for me. And I
actually closed my kitchen for the entire month of June due to travel
and family matters. Apologies to all my friends and customers that I
couldn't take your orders.
Anyways, I have more or less
settled down, and I think I should be able to bake again, but still
subject to availability as the schedule for second half of the year is
Here are the orders I managed to fulfill for April and May. Big thanks to those who gave me their support!
is a sweet looking cake ordered by a lovely mum for a "cake smash
photography" of her one year-old daughter. "Cake smash" seems to be
quite popular these days as I've received a few inquiries and orders.
mummy wanted a cake that's light and less sweet and pretty looking as
well. The sponge layer cake with chantilly cream frosting fitted the
requirements but as it was an outdoor photo shoot, using buttercream for
overall frosting would be more suitable (buttercream can last longer in
room temperature than chantilly cream) and hence rosettes buttercream
decor (using less sweet swiss meringue buttercream) was perfect for this
cake. Glad that the photography turned out well :)
was ordered by my Sec school friend who has been so supportive of my
cakes and ordered quite a few cakes from me already. It was for Mother's
Day celebration and I was pleased to hear that all the mums enjoyed the
cake (and that it was less sweet and light on the palate).
this cake, it could be decorated with just a ring of rosettes leaving
the centre blank or with wordings; or the centre part could be filled
with fruits of choice like strawberries.
received cupcake orders for a long time! This was ordered by another
mummy who is also very supportive and had ordered a few cakes from me
the past year. She wished to have 50 cupcakes for her daughter's
birthday celebration and these were the flavours selected.
chocolate cupcakes were made using Valrhona cocoa powder, overall
tender and not too sweet and went well with the swiss meringue chocolate
buttercream made using Amedei milk chocolate. Then topped with some
silver candy dragees and Valrhona crunchy chocolate pearls. For the
The carrot and walnut cupcakes
were rich in flavour and super moist and I love to eat it with cream
cheese frosting. This is a more intense cake, my personal favourite.
Hokkaido chiffon cupcakes were in turn very light and fluffy, so I
paired them with chantilly cream and topped off with a little flower
Jelly Hearts Cheesecake, ordered by another Sec school classmate, for
her daughter's birthday party. This was the cake I made for my son's
birthday celebration in school this year and certainly very
well-received among children and adults alike, as the cake has different
textures and flavours to it.
by the first mummy who has the cake smash photography. This time was
for the actual birthday celebration for her gal. She selected this
design that I made before, and for the rosettes decor, we went for three
shades of pale pink, pink and lilac.
For this cake, it could be decorated with just a ring of rosettes
leaving the centre blank or with wordings; or the centre part could be
filled with fruits of choice like lychees.
cake order for cake smash photography by another mummy. We had
discussed at length about different designs and suitability and finally
she decided to go for this basic rosette design. Glad that her
photography session turned out well too!
Looking forward to the next quarter and hopefully able to squeeze in more orders or explore some new flavours :)
