Tom & Jerry for Alifa's 6th Birthday

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.

Najthami & Diaz's Birthday Cake - Hotwheels

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!

Bolu Biasa :-)

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 :-)

Chocolate Cake in Slices

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!

Wedding Cupcakes for Indy & Ferry

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!

Cake Hantaran Wedding

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 :-)

Dinosaurus theme for Naila

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.
