Let's Bake with Puteri & I
Friday, June 27, 2008 kuE's cupcakes went down south

as soon as i found out from CK that rose was coming to singapore from yesterday, i quickly contacted rose and make some secret arrangements with her. believe it or not... CK never try my cupcakes yet. this like kinda a mission. so on the very late tuesday evening, i baked some medium size butter cupcakes and decorate them with buttercream frosting as usual.

once its done, i placed them nicely in cake boxes. then i wrap them with aluminium foil, and again with brown papers this time. you may say it sounds troublesome, but this way especially with the aluminium foil will avoid the cupcakes from being ruin because of the surrounding heatness insya allah... i learned this from "a friend" who used to work with pizza hut before. if you are so clever enough you could notice that i also labeled the boxes with some arrow signs showing up. thats to warn people to handle the boxes with care during transportation ;)

and this pic taken via rose' camera fon, after they have opened the box hehee... sure lama giler you all wanna unwrap that kan? :) i think the cupcakes look kinda o-k-a-y, only the shape run a bit here and there on some of them. its alright, we will improve more on that in the future. the most important thing is the thought that counts AND... that they lurve my cupcakes. CK text me very early this morning. it seems that lil' yasmin ate four pieces in one go... *bigger grin*

see... its not that hard to surprise your loved ones right. as you could see, i loved surprises. some of the recent ones before this was for megat's mini birthday party. he really didn't expect that it gonna turned so special even though it was just a small party with very closed family. what when both my sisters came all the way from kl. while i send a gift box of birthday cupcakes for my cousin fek in ipoh, in april. read more about it here. plus many more. sometimes the plan was a bit screwed up like this one... hah!

so maybe you people may asked, of how did i transport those cupcakes to rose. well its all thanks to transnasional. you can discuss with the driver whether you wanna him to drop your package at transnasional counter in puduraya or hentian putra' station. simple as that! and with a very minimal service charge, it is so worth it! now for those of you people in kl who wanna try my cupcakes, just holla...

Friday, June 20, 2008 the green & white laces

its been quite some time since i didn't do this signature design of mine. go here, here and here to view more of this designs. so when my cousin kak roza ordered some cupcakes just for 'makan-makan', with the 'apa-apa je lah' (anything) design and colour, i make them my own way... like for kechik's order last time (the one for guest), when you said 'apa-apa', so there goes apa-apa hehee...

this time kak roza's orders are in medium size. it was kinda tricky though to do some quite small swirly designs, compared to the one that i usually do in much bigger size.

together in that one batch of dough i also made some to be sent to a local club's cafe here in kuale. the cafe lady wants to sell my cupcakes there alhamdulillah... according to her it seems the cafe is quite busy in the morning for breakfast or morning break especially to government offices people nearby, bankers and also public. so for her its better if she could sell and help me to promote my cupcakes too. i will be sending my cupcakes there every two days, starting today insya allah... the cafe is closed on saturdays. i will blog about the club some other time. so make sure you come back here to find out about it. who knows maybe you can drop-by at the club's cafe when you are in town ;)

Sunday, June 01, 2008 the many boy faces cupcakes

blimey! what a great co-incidence that this special 100th' post is about megat's birthday cupcakes. and as usual, here's a screenshot of my blogspot' dashboard as a proof.

alright then... while we are waiting for lil' safiya, let me show you people of megat's birthday cupcakes--

this time its chocolate cupcakes, recipe found from here.

while the cupcakes design were inspired by This Mama Cooks!' baby face cupcakes. even though she make those for baby shower, i find that they are suitable for boys too :0)

actually i did dream of trying to make ben 10' cupcakes using fondant; but unfortunately i am not good at sculpturing it yet like this ipoh mali gal huhu... anyhow, what ever it is, i don't care ler as long as megat lurves them too! ;) go here to view the mini birthday party pics.

kuE's note:
go here and here to see what i baked for megat on the same day last year :)
