of still in the raya mood...
some of you people may know that i hate last min.! the secretary of my former primary school's PTA text me last night about us having a committee meeting at 3pm today grr... but since i am a strong lady, i would still try to do the best of me, regards of anything.
despite of that, also since i was a bit free, with no work (temporarily), i baked some raya cupcakes this morning, to be brought to the meeting. i was so glad that they love my cupcakes so much. i guess it was all based on the 'Q' of our cupcakes that mentioned before here. some even thought of ordering in the near future ;)

this one no one's, inspired by betty crocker's -- simply trying the technique ;)
i guess its perfect for polka-dot theme too! what say you?
kuE's update, about 12 hours later: mom loves my latest creation ;) so this two boxes of box of 9 have been nicely packed for a local maybank's manager, as a gift from us. he will pick this up later on his way back from the ocpd's rayaopen house. i am going there shortly too! alright then... byeee!!!...
we baked these last night as a raya treat for megat's classmate. the best thing was, megat thought of bringing some raya goodies for them last week when the school re-open on wednesday. how ler... to give them a piece of cookies each. so i told megat that its better for us to give them cupcakes! megat was sooo excited... he was so happy too when i helped him to bring them to the school this morning.
"thank you mama. i love you so much..." , he said. i love you too! mwahhh...
our cupcakes (and cookies) are made by hand and are baked to order. they are sent fresh out of the oven, so they should be served sooner than later. you can place our cupcakes in an air tight container and keep them at room temperature or put them in the fridge, but make sure they’re at room temperature when you eat them!
kak zaireen called me yesterday. but i only managed to return her call this morning. unfortunately she was unable to talk though. so she sent me sms not too long after that--
hi kuE, kak zaireen xde suara tadi masa jawab ur call, sorry. anyway i wanted 2 order 5 more boxes. mm... everyone loved your cupcakes... even my mum nk belajar ur recipe nk buat utk yusoff (kak zaireen's son) hehe. hope u can make more 4 me... i m goin 2 try promote it for you :-)
oikk... if you (kak zaireen) wanna more cupcakes ok... but about the recipe (read here too) hmm... NAH... i dun think so ler... i guess let it just be my secrets lar k?

pink theme cupcakes for kak zaireen
i am so glad that kak zaireen loves her cupcakes. she told me to bake for her as much as i could, but at least she needs a minimum of three boxes of box of 9. she understand my situation as she saw me at work ;) anyhow i managed to bake five boxes for her! plus one extra for grandmother, who wanted to give someone as a gift.
kak zaireen dropped-by just on time, when i wanted to arrange the cupcakes in the boxes accordingly (refer right pic). after the 'kiss-kiss', she smiled, looking at all those cupcakes.
an uncle and his family from taman melawati in kl were here too that time. he kept asking whether i did some extras for him to buy.
but... suddenly kak zaireen said, "its alright. i korbankan two boxes...", while pushed two boxes towards them.
"how about you?", they asked.
" i could ask kuE to bake more and pass them to her sister on wednesday".

the day i am still baking raya cupcakes...
...while everyone were celebrating raya. thats right. our house was full of guest, while i was busy in the kitchen, decorating raya cupcakes for kay's auntie this morning. take note that i didn't take pic of her order cuz its the same with my raya cupcakes sample. the one on the left was my sis, arranging truffle made by her, and raya cupcakes made by me.
a cousin-in-law, kak zaireen was very interested, after she tasted one. she immediately ordered five boxes of box of 9. since she's gonna go back to kl tomorrow, i had to bake hers tonight. as you could see, i am in the mid of baking while i took the chance to blog lol... ;) anyhow i will only do the frosting tomorrow morning though, as kak zaireen will only be going back in the afternoon. so do not forget to check-out pics of her pink theme cupcakes tomorrow hehe...

more hari raya '07 cupcakes...
life's been pretty busy this week. you could see that there's been no updates here nor there.
i have been started baking and delivering the raya cupcakes since wednesday, whole day, non-stop -- most of our orders were from ipoh :) but i am still able to smile hehe... collage pics above were part of the pics taken since then i.e. top and middle row cupcakes been delivered yesterday, while the last row' have been safely delivered today. i will be baking more cupcakes later for local orders.
regards to the above pics also, i was so happy that i managed to try to pipe-out basket weave design (top row, middle) that i learned from here. i know its cute but of course more time needed for that :P

kuE's kenwood patissier mx270
finally... i bought myself this machine (RM1,339.00) to help us in the kitchen. well actually i didn't think of getting it today. it was all just by co-incidence ;) but of course its already in my wish list for quite some time.
i had to go and collect some of the pos material from our ISO. as usual we took the chance to drop-by kinta city. at first i was so happy that i found 2-pieces cake tier set that i have been looking for. i bought 2 sets of those. in my case, i wanna use it to display my cupcakes. maybe i will start using it during this upcoming hari raya hehe... can't wait! i will load pics then.
after we kept our things that we bought earlier in the car, we went back to the mall again, when puteri and my sis told me that they saw quite a number of nice and cute mixer on sale. arrghhh!!!... i knew it that i really need one, to make my life easier :)
the product on display was red in colour. i chose white instead, as it could match most of our baking stuff i.e. our oven is white. owh... i dunno whether i could sleep well tonight. the thing is... am gonna start baking the hari raya cupcakes orders very soon!
o yes... would you all people believe me that all this while we mixed the ingredients all by ourselves, by hand hehe... i told this to kechik when we met a few weeks ago. she was like-- "haa?!!". lol...
