Pinky flowery barby doll birthday cake for Nasya

Mbak Diah, Averil's mom contacted me last week and asked me if I would be available to make barbie doll cake for her niece birthday.

The barbie doll should be in colorful pink and it has a base cake which is strawberry cake.

So here it is...I made 2 layer of strawberry sponge cakes with vanilla vla and strawberry paletta filling. Strawberry syrup and butter cream are also provitable for this cake. The barbie cake itself is chocolate butter cake.

There was an accident during the delivery from my home in Cibubur to my office in Pancoran area. As the barbie doll cake is pretty heavy and we got some bumpy road this morning, there was a damage! My heart was srunk looking at decoration damages. But then I managed to get all my decoration stuff delivered to my office this morning and I touched up the decoration at my office pantry.

I called my Diah and explained her everything. Glad she understood the situatiation. This afternoon the cake is on the way for delivery. I decided to divided the cake into 2 boxes. I told mbak Diah to put the barbie doll cake on the base cake by herself just right before the birthday party to avoid more damage.

Besided ordering the cake, actually mbak Dian also orderd 35 cups pudding devided into 3 flavours : chocolate orange, strawberry and almond lychee. I didn't take any picture of them.

Thank yo mbak Diah for your order and your trust. My love for Averil and Nasya!

Here was the text message I received from Mbak Diah that made me soo relieved :-)

"Mbak Dewi, Alhamdulillah semua lancar :-) Kuenya siy so pasti enak! :-) Tadi yang dipotong baru base cake-nya aja untuk temen2 dan guru TK. Barbie cake dibawa pulang untuk syukuran kecil dgn keluarga nanti sore. Thx a lot ya Mbak :-)

Max's 5th Birthday Cake

More repeated order from Melisa, Max's Mom. Today is Max's 5th Birthday and Melisa has ordered this birthday cake since a few weeks ago.

Actually Melisa wanted me to do the fondant figurine for the "Time Before Land" theme but I gave up and finally Melisa gave up too and we ended up with edible picture hehehe...

I made 3 layers of 30 x 30cm chocolate devil cake as Melisa's family is a big fan of my chocolate devil cake. Previously I always made only 2 layer, this time I tried the 3 layers for lovely Max's birthday.

I should apologize if the decoration seems too simple. I alway have a hard time to do boys decoration, girly theme seems much easier for me :-)
My husband said better to be that simple though if it is for a boy, well every body has their own preference. Just wait for Melisa & Max's comments then.

Happy 5th birthday dearest Max, God bless!

And here was Melisa's comment re Max's birthday cake that I copy from my Multiply :

"Cakep ko Dew (beneran, gak cuman ngehibur doang). Kalo pake edible emang dekor selebihnya gak usah rame2. Next time udah pede ya pake figurine hi..hi..hi.. Tks udah ngusahain yang terbaik untuk Max. Sun sayang dari Max (ga sabar nih nunggu kuenya dateng, masih otw ke Serang)"

Fruit Pie for Olin's Papa Birthday

Olin who lives in Norway ordered this fruit pie for her beloved Papa whose celebrated his 55th birthday last Sunday.

As Olin's Papa doesn't like too much sugar, I cut some sugar on the vla and pie crust.

Halal Bihalal Chocolate Cake

Order from JJ for his high school Halal Bihalal and reunion last Saturday.

A simple and sweet chocolate cake.

Kekahan's Cupcakes

Apologize me as I don't know what's the word in English for Kekahan and what's the exactly meaning hiks. If I am not mistaken, in Islam, Kekahan is a ceremonial prayer and fellowship for the new baby born. A give thanks to Allah also a hope from the parents and elders for the new baby born. They also sacrifice a lamb during this ceremony and share the lamb to the orphanage. CMIIW.

Dyah, Aurell's mom who previously ordered birthday cake during Eidul Fitri holiday, this time ordered some cupcakes for a gift to her best friend whose held Kekahan Ceremony last Saturday.

As her friend is a big fan of chocolate, I made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate ganache filling and put chocolate toppers.

I made some for Aurell too with the same theme but add some more cupcakes with girly theme, too bad didn't get a chance to take picture of Aurell's cupcakes.

Thank you very much mbak Dyah for your repeated order.

Here was the YM message I received from her this morning :

idm_tanti: pagi mbak dewi..thanks ya cupcakesnya...aurel seneng banget..lucu2 sampe dia gak tega mau makannya tuh...
kristiantidewi: waaahh lega deh thanks ya
idm_tanti: iya temen ku juga bilang ih mbak ini coklat toh hiasannya kirain mainan...wah tau aja kesenenganku katanya...
kristiantidewi: hehehehe...syukurlah
idm_tanti: sekali lagi makasih banyak ya...
kristiantidewi: sama-sama mbak Dyah

Reuben's 4th Birthday cupcakes

I have been friends with Rebecca for years. We come from the same place, Salatiga, a tiny freshy little town in Central Java :-)

We went to the same high school, same university but different major and same church. We also joined the same program in late 90's, IVEP.

A while ago Kaka, that's how I call her, called me and talked about her plan to order some cupcakes for her son's birthday, Reuben. As Kaka only mentioned "Reuben's 4th birthday" for the theme, I decided to use Sisil's idea for the initial decoration - thanks Sil!. I made the little flag saying "Reuben's 4th Birthday" it's such fun and I think I will do the same in the future for other birthday cupcakes :-)

It's chocolate chips cupcakes, individually wrapped in yellow ribbon.

Glad Kaka loves the cake, she sent me email just now :


Thanks cupcakes-nya, they are so cute…



You are the most welcome Ka, my best greeting to Suko and Reuben :-)

There was a Halal Bihalal in my neighborhood and I made 2 dessert for the fellowship. As usual...everyone just love my orange mini pie.

For the pie crust, I use the same recipe from here.

And for the vla I've just modified a little bit the vla recipe I got from NCC. Subtituted the vanilla pasta with 2 teaspoons lemon pasta.

Cuppies for Eidul Fitri & Karin's Anniversary

I feel so bad now that I didn't have energy to take picture of cuppies that Karin ordered before the Eidul Fitri.

Karin, my best friend since college, actually ordered 4 dozen of cupcakes for Eidul Fitri and one dozen for her anniversary. But I was just overwhelmed with everything so when finishing her cuppies I just delivered them directly without taking any picture.

Here was the text message I received from Karin, expressing her satisfaction of my cuppies :

"Aik, thanks ya for the nice n beautiful cuppies. We like it... :-) My niece loves the flowers"

You are the most welcome Karin, sorry I don't keep any photo of your cuppies. If you have one please send me so I can post it on my blog. My best greeting to Wibi and your cute son, Rafa.

Barbie Cake for Rena's 3rd Birthday

Another Barbie doll cake for Rena, Sylvia's daughter. Rena birthday was one day before the Eidul Fitri and Sylvia was afraid if I wouldn't be able to help her to make the cake for Rena. Since a month before Sylvia contacted me to make sure that I would say yes to her.

Don't worry Sylvia, as we've been good friends for a few years and since I know that you willing to travel from Tangerang to my home at Cibubur to pick up the cake, so there was no reason for me to say no.

Happy Birthday Rena!

Tiap mau dipotong kuenya, dia selalu bilang 'eh jangan....jangan dulu dipotong, Ma! :-) I have promised her to order barbie cake for her birthday, and cake order for 1 day prior to Idul Fitri....you've just saved me for that :) Thanks again Dewi...Semoga makin sukses bisnis kuenya ya. GBU. Syvia & Rena"

Princess Ariel for princess Aurell

I received email from Aurell's mom a few weeks before Aurell's birthday ordering a pink Ariel's theme birthday cake for her lovely princess Aurell :-)

Actually Aurell's mom was desperate as Aurell's birthday was close to Eidul Fitri then she was afraid that none of home bakers would be able to help her to make a surprise for her little princess.

So when I said yes to her, she was very happy.

Here was the sms she sent the next day after the cake delivery :

"Pagi mbak Dewi, makasih banget kuenya yummy banget and lucu. Anakku seneng bgt kejutannya....Pokoke thanks a lot for make it happen"
