Blue Hot Wheel for Kyle

Order from Sisca, Kyle's mom for Kyle's 8th birthday today. A blue hot wheel car. I have searched thru the internet to find the best model for the carving cake and ended up with this one.

I know it's not the right model...but I hope Kyle will like it. 2 layer of chocolate cake with blueberry and chocolate ganache. Decorated with fondant and a little bit of butter cream. The car made of chocolate butter cake and fondant.

Happy birthday Kyle....

Here was the text message I received from Kyle's mom :

"Kuenya enak, thank you!"

Green birthday cupcakes for Nafisa

These are some of 3 dozen of green cupcakes for Nafisa's 3rd Birthday. Nafisa is a big fan of green so everything was green except for the flowers of course.

These cupcakes were packed individually and decorated using green ribbon too but I didn't take a picture of them.

Receiving 2 smses from mbak Indry :

"Mbak kuenya udah diterima, bagus bgt tp blum dicoba soalnya puasa." (Mbak, have received the cupcakes, very nice, but have not tried any yet as I am fasting)

"Mbak kuenya enak, terima kasih ya mbak udah dibantuin" (Mbak, the cupcake tasted great, thanks for your help).

You are the most welcome mbak Indry...happy to hear that everyone loves the cupcake. My love greeting to cutie Nafisa :-)

Devan's 1st birthday cupcake

Besides ordering birthday cake with Thomas the tank engine theme, Winda also ordered cupcakes with Devan's edible photo.

Wedding Gift for Ikoh & Dandy

This chocolate rich cake was a gift from the company for the wedding of Ikoh and Dandy.

I made 3 layers of chocolate rich cake with ganache filling. The size is 30 x 30cm. And it wasn't easy to find the right and nice box for the cake. I made special order for the box and it cost a lot in total plus the delivery price, but it was worthed.

Happy Wedding Ikoh and Dandy...happily ever after :-)

Chocolate Almond Cake for Melisa's Husband

This time Melisa ordered a chocolate almond cake for her husband's birthday today. According to Melisa, her husband doesn't like sponge cake stuff so I decided to make him a chocolate devil cake using american recipe that is usually butter cake type buat still very moist and chocolaty! It was the same recipe I used for making Meene (Melisa's daughter) one month cake a while ago.

One thing I missed was the wording. I absolutely can't remember even didn't take a note of the wording preference for the cake, so I made it myself for the wording. Gladly that Melisa wasn't mine with it. Thanks Mel!

This morning I received sms from Melisa. They loved the cake as usual and the taste was just perfect for them.

"Lagi nulis sms pas sms mu masuk :-) Kuenya baru aku makan nih. Enak, cantik, gak terlalu manis, coklatnya mantap, cakenya padat cocok sama coklat dan almondnya. Tapi prasaan wordingnya bukn happy bday my love deh hehehe...Udah habis 2 ptg untuk breakfast. Enak pokoke 2 jempol deh."

Thank you Melisa, Happy Birthday to your husband and my love for Max and Meene.

Classic Black Forest

I made this delicious classic black forest on our 7th Anniversary. My husband loves this cake so much. My kids like it too except for the dark cherry filling, they don't really care about it and prefer to eat the cake without the dark cherry filling.

1. Potong kue menjadi 2 atau 3 bagian
2. Basahi lapisan pertama dengan symple syrup, lalu tuang sebagian filling dark chery lalu tambahkan Whipped cream yang sudah dikocok kaku.
3. Tutup dengan lapisan ke 2, lakukan hal yang sama sampai semuanya habis.
4. Terakhir tutup semua kue dengan W/P cream.. trus hias dengan cherry merah.. percantik deh sesuka hati..

Doraemon for Farrel's 1st Birthday

This time Fajar ordered a Doraemon birthday cake for her son, Farrel. It was a bit difficult to find the complete Doraemon cake toy set for Farrel. After hunting to some cake shops I finally found them in Blossom but Fajar still unsatisfied as it wasn't the complete one. Then Fajar tried to find the complete one to other place and finally found them with an expensive one.

I followed the Doraemon color as the theme for the birthday cake. The cake itself made of 2 layer chocolate sponge cakes with ganache and blueberry filling.

I was happy with this cake. I think Doraemon theme is such a cutie!

Here is the email I received from Fajar regarding Farrel's birthday cake :

Sorry HP ga ada pulsa he..he..

Enak bgt, semua anak minta di bagi..awalnya ada anak kecil yg ngomong “aku minta kue doraemon” yaudah deh bagi2 aja dikit2.. anak2 banyak yg minta doraemonnya ha..ha..si arel molongo doang (nggak ngerti)

Lucunya, sodara kira beli di Holland Bakery, artinya dah waktunya noh, buka toko kue he..he..survey membuktikan :-)

Train Cake for Dilon's 5th Birthday

A train cake for Dilon's 5th birthday ordered by his mom, Mona. Basic cake was 2 layers of 26 x 26cm moist chocolate sponge cake with ganache filling. And the train cake made of chocolate cake and vanilla roll cake.

There was an accident when I decorated the cake. I put the train cake directly on the top of base cake and because of the base cake was very moist and soft it's not strong enough to hold the train cake. Just in an hour after finishing the cake, it's getty messy and I needed to re-decorate the cake from the beginning. I didn't have much time left and everything was in rush.

I wasn't satisfied with the result but Mona and Dilon especially loved it.

Here the sms that I received from Mona after the birthday party.

"Baru aku mau sms Wie, kuenya lucu dan bagus dekornya, rasanya juga ok. Si Dilon jadi seneng banget he3x. Tx banget ya say, kpn2 pesan lg d :)"

(I was just about to sms you Wie, the cake is cute and nice decoration, the taste is OK also. Dilon was very excited he3X. Thank you very much, I will order again sometimes).

Thank you Mona!
