So happy to finally meeting mbak Ana Lumintang, Nadine's mom and the whole family. Mbak Ana becoming Joris' Kitchen's customer since last year. She ordered barbie doll cake for Nadine's 5th birthday. This year, to celebrate Nadine's 6th Birthday, Mbak Ana ordered cupcakes on tier with barbie doll cake on the top.
There was a cute story behind the barbie doll cake. Mbak Ana challenged me to find a barbie doll with black hair to represent cutie Nadine that has long black beautiful hair. Secondly, the barbie doll cake should be in Nadine's future elementary school uniform. That's okay to have blown skirt like princess gown as long as the skirt color is blue, Nadine's future elementary' school uniform, said mbak Ana. So here it is!...Princess Nadine in her future elementary school's uniform :-)
I made 100 chocolate cupcakes and a few more as bonus to be put on the tier. Decorated with butter cream and Nadine's edible image pictures. Too bad forgot to take picture of each individual cupcake before I packed them in mika.
The party was held in KFC Kemang. I took my kids there to accompanied me preparing the cupcakes on the tier. They had chance to play in the play ground while I am working and had some KFC stuff, they were so happy. And when finally we met Nadine and family, Nadine invited Ruth and Jonathan to join the party. The party was a blast, my kids loved to be part of it.
Mbak Ana, Nadine, thank you very much for everything. It's so great to finally met you all and get to know you and your family better. God bless!

After ordered some goodie bags and birthday cake in November last year, this time mbak Ardin re-ordered the birthday cake for her lovely daughter birthday, Alifa.
The theme is Tom & Jerry and mbak Ardin gave me the sample of birthday cake with the same theme from the internet. Simple...yes very simple one. It was a very quick decorating to do, only took me a hour to finish everything and I even wanted to add some more things but just couldn't figure out what else to put on the cake.
I finally decided to put some gumpaste flowers and plastic grass for the cake on the top and in front of the cake. Kind of like this cake though, simple but nice.
The basic cake is 30cm square vanilla sponge cake with buttercream blueberry flavour. Decoration using vanilla buttercream and edible icing.
Thank you mbak Ardin for your order. Hope Alifa will love the cake.

Order from my lovely neighbour accrossed the street, mbak Henny, for her sons' birthday.
Najthami and Diaz, born in the same month, in April, which birthdates close to each other. So their parents decided to celebrate their birthday together last Sunday. As Najthami, the elder ones, loves Hotwheels so much, they picked up Hotwheels theme as their birthday's cake theme. It's so difficult to find some one who could help me with the race track. Thanks to mbak Ina Larizz who helped with with race trace edible icing.
It's 30x30cm chocolate double cake with butter cream icing. Just love the color combination. The picture above was before I took the cake to mbak Henny's house. As usual mbak Henny always like to have almost everything on the cake. Kind of a bit go to the wrong theme and mixed them up but as long as they happy I would happy too :-)
Thank you mbak Hen!
More and more order from Lia, Kyla's mom :-) :-)
When Lia came to me and talked about "Bolu Biasa" aka "simple cake" not decorated ones, I was confused and didn't know what I was going to do with the cake. For me naked cake will look so poor in my eyes, I won't be able to stand and not decorate them, hahahahaha...but customer is a king!
So here it is....I came up with 2 layer of vanilla sponge cake with blueberry jam filling. And to make it more tasty I put some shredded cheddar cheese on the top of other layer before baking them in the oven. And guess what??...Lia and family just love this cake, this was actually the second order from her, previously she ordered 3 cakes.
Wanna order my bolu biasa?? size 24x24cm only Rp 75,000. Delivery is excluded :-)
Another order from Lia, Kyla's mom. Lia was thinking about preparing some snacks for Ruth and Kyla's ensamble group and she asked my favor to do it for her. From my observation, these kids would just eat anything hehehehe...so I prepared something simple, quick but yummy still for them as I had very limited time.
Glad to know that the kids love the cake and butter cream hehehehe.....those sweet teeth just couldn't stop muching on them :-)
Thanks again, Lia!
Being separated with your love ones by far distance would always be difficult. This time a husband in Kairo, Egypt sending a black forest cake for his beloved wife on their anniversary.
Ooohh deeaarrr...that must be very difficult for them. I pray that they will see each other again soon.
Glad to be part of their love series :-)
I made this carrot for breakfast meeting in my office. Some people have made a noise about tasting my carrot cake so I gave them my speciality to taste.
This was the carrot cake before I cut them into slices and served them, just very simple one. With cream cheese frosting and put some more shredded cheddar cheese around the cake. Yaayy....I got so many tumbs up on that day hahahaha...they just loved my carrot cake and even the Senior VP from our company has asked for special order. She would take my carrot cake to Singapore, hand carry! wow!!...it's really my priviledge :-)
My boss said, we're gonna pay your carrot cake, can't be for free as it's just way delicious. Yayyy..thank you boss!

Order from Lynda, a dearest online friend from the Netherlands. This wedding cupcakes was dedicated for her beloved niece, Indy on her wedding day!
I was very excited doing another wedding cupcakes project and promised to myself to always give my best for the couple. Indy and Ferry were very cooperative, they just trust everything would be okay in my hands.
Linda was the one who picked the theme for the wedding cupcakes. She prefers to have pink and blue theme, but then later on there was a problem as the interior decor reception theme was maroon and gold. Tried to think to match the wedding cupcakes theme with decor and finally got an idea to use my gold cupcakes liners, yes that would do good!
I am so happy doing this project, all my love to Indy and Ferry poured thru my cupcakes. I made 80 cupcakes which were devided into 2 flavours, vanilla mint and chocolate. Decorated them with butter cream and simple gumpaste flowers. I gave more touch up on the tiers with baby pink lace around the tiers and some fresh flowers. The cake on the top of tiers was lapis surabaya diameter 20cm with full fondant decoration and some fresh flowers.
Very happy with the result and glad that the newly weds and their families were also very happy and satisfied with the wedding cupcakes.
Thank you very much Lynda for your trust. God bless you!

Utang postingan bejibun...baru sempet edit 2 yang lain masih ngendon di card dan belum ada energy untuk transfer hihihihihihi....
Hasil kerja 3 minggu yang lalu....Minggu yang super sibuk dan sangat melelahkan....tapi bersyukur masih diberikan kesehatan dan kekuatan sehingga dapat menyelesaikan semua pesanan dengan baik. Dalam 1 akhir pekan ada pesanan 28 pak kue hantaran pernikahan, wedding cupcakes dan snack box sebanyak 125 boxes. Juggling around nggak karuan tapi akhirnya semua dapat selesai tepat waktu.
Ini adalah cake hantaran pernikahan pesanan Lia, mamanya Kyla, temen satu kelas Ruth. Tadinya cuman mau pesan 15 pcs tapi terus nambah jadi 28. Cakenya ukuran 15cm yang dihias dengan edible image dan butter cream. Nggak sanggup ngerjain cakenya sendiri, aku minta tolong Pak Sahak dan Puji Tuhan, Pak Sahak bersedia membantu....senangnya.
Menghias 28 cake dapat aku selesaikan dalam waktu semalam. Petang hari usai istirahat sejenak dari urusan snack box dan wedding cupcakes aku segera menyicil pekerjaan ini. Suamiku baik sekali, dia bawa anak-anak keluar untuk jalan-jalan supaya nggak ganggu mamanya sampai jam 9 malam. Dan dari mulai jam 18:30 - 21:00 aku berhasil menyelesaikan 13 cakes. Uuuggghhh masih 15 lagi....tapi tidur dulu.....terbangun pukul 23:30 segera aku kerja lagi. Kali ini tanpa ditemani TV supaya pekerjaannya lebih fokus. Dan Puji Tuhan, tepat pukul 3 dini hari semua sudah selesai. Aaahhh leganya...senangnya.....
Terima kasih Lia....ordernya jalan terus, Puji Tuhan :-)

I was contacted by mbak Yessy a few days before Naila's birthday. Mbak Yessy told me that her daughter would like to have dinosaurus theme for her 5th birthday. As my kids not really into dinosaurus, I need to asked for some references from Shopia, my colleague whose daugher loves dinosaurus very much.
Finally I could find the mini dianosaurus figurines. Together with Ruth and Jonathan, we went to the toy shop in Cibubur to get this figurines as the one that I saw in Tebet was already sold out in the evening I went there after office hour, hiks. Decorating idea got it from Mbak Peni's blog.
The delivery time was another story. As it was raining very hard all afternoon, the courier had to postpone the delivery until 6:30PM and it was really surprisingly that the cake arrived in Serpong almost middle of the night *pyyuufffffff*
Thank you mbak Yessy for the order. I apologize for any inconvinience during waiting for the cake arrived in your home.

Another double chocolate cake order from the US for the love one, Cella Marcella in Kelapa Gading. When I called the courier and told them that the receiver was Cella Marcella, they were busy guessing whether it was Cella the artist. I told them I don't have any idea, as it's an order thru internet and it wasn't my right to ask...I am just a baker. Don't want to bother with some one else business :-)
Thank you for the order :-)

This was order from mbak Betsty. Banana cake with chocolate ganache and fresh fruits topping.
There was a missed understanding between me and mbak Betsy. I didn't get her poin for the candles. I should have asked her earlier or reconfirmed her whether she needed candles or not. As she didn't clearly mentioning her request I didn't put any candles. My deep apologize mbak Betsy.
It was the first time for me to try this kind of fresh fruit arrangement. Not my style but just trying and I don't think I will do it anymore. I prefer to have everything in order. It's just not my style.
Thank you mbak Betsy.
