Rainbow Party

It has been years that Joanne wanted a birthday party for herself.  Whenever I had cake orders, she will ask if I will made her a similar cake for her upcoming birthday?  Unfortunately, her birthday cake will ended up with an off shelf purchase cake.

The last birthday party that Joanne had was while she was 4 years old.  After that was just a family celebration.

This year, she was begging again and again for a birthday party so that she can invite all her best friend from school.  To be rewarded with a birthday party, the rules was to score all “A” in her 4th semester exam.  In order to hep her in getting all “As”, the mom played a big role!  I bought many reference exercises; I also have to make sure that she had her dinner on time after school so that she can start her study/homework early before falling asleep at 9pm.  Joanne and myself went trough a tough time and her results had rewarded her with a Rainbow Theme Birthday Party!

Cotton Cheese Cake

Cotton Cheese Cake

Part A

Step A : Measure below and mix well

500g Cream Cheese

50g Sugar

230g Whip Cream (I used Bridel Brand)

( I use FAT FREE Philadelphia Cream Cheese and hubby was so surprise when he did the washing!  ” Mama, Why the pot is oil free?”   For me, the cheesecake turned out to be yummy as I have FAT gyne in my family, but my friend commented that it was not as creamy as the previous cheesecake which I used Regular Philadelphia cream cheese.  So its your choice! )

Part B

Step B: Measure and add to Part A

5 Egg Yolk

120g Plain Flour (I use super fine flour)

1 Lemon zest (*optional)

Part C

Step C: Whisk egg white to form peak white foam

5 Egg Whites cold

100g Sugar

1 tspn Lemon Juice

* This is an important step that used in all sponge cake.

I like to use cold egg whites and started to whisk the egg white till some bubble forms.

Adding small amounts of lemon juice helps to stabilize them and allows the beaten whites to reach their full volume and stiffness.

When foam egg white seen, add in partial sugar and whisk well.  Continue the remaining sugar in foam egg white till stiff peak.

AbBy Having a Mini Mouse Party

The cutest baby I ever since – Abby is turning 1 year old!

Her mommy had decided to make her a Mini Mouse birthday party.  A small and simple dessert table was setup at Small Potato Café at Tanjung Bunga, Penang.  A compliment dummy fondant decorated cake with Pink Mini’s Bow was the hi-light for the dessert table because everyone was so surprise to see another Big Mini Mouse cake brought out for cake cutting ceremony.  Fondant cookies with Mini Mouse theme was done by tweethomemade as well.  Kids, family and friends just love this dessert table.  Kids will grab sweets from this table and adults were close to the dessert table and taking snap shot.

The Birthday Girl – Little Abby was definitely thrill. We able to capture how Abby bow her head down trying to eat her first cake!  It was definitely hilarious and cute!

It’s Hello Kitty Week

Hello Kitty is always my all time favorite.

There you goes, a Kitty request of cupcakes and cake came in the same time!

The first request for Kitty Cake was kids friendly birthday cake and I decided to make it a candy cake (*Since candy Crush is a fever in Asia)
I bought a kitty mold and molded the lovely Kitty.  Then the cake was decorated with 2D fondant of candy, lollipop, ice cream, cupcakes and finish up with some yellow sprinklers!

The second Kitty cake was a much simpler one that I made it up for my friend’s belated birthday party.  Its a simple 1kg cake that given her a huge surprise and brighten up her day!

The third kitty cupcakes was another baby girl turning 1 year old!  She requested a 3D Kitty and I decided to mold in Kitty friends – Melody and a teddy bear.

10 Year Anniversary

Do you see the different of vow before 10 years and after then?

This 10th Anniversary Theme is a Tin! A website suggested to find a tin and started to put inside the sentimental values that things that can tell story of the first 10 years of marriage. For example, first honeymoon, first baby, second baby, hospitalize, new home, new car etc. filled it all up with every moment of life on the first decade of marital.  Hide the tin and revisit them in next decade of marriage.

Recap your good times, leave behind the bad times, and stay true to the love that  brought you together to begin with.

As always, be good to one another for your love is all you really have.

It was a beautiful evening at Lone Pine Hotel Garden.

My bes friend, owner of dehappygifts was celebrating her 10 year anniversary on May 4th.  She decorated her wedding with all white pom pom. I cannot remember the exact number of pom poms that she had made and believe me, it was at least 150 of them hanging on the top of the dinner table.  I have helped her with all her wedding cakes on dessert table. I have made 2 dummy cakes display on dessert table and a 3 tiers wedding cake for her cake cutting ceremony.

The dinner started at about 6.30pm with cocktail. Kids were so happy running around the garden and taking silly pictures at the photo booth.  Friends and relatives started to register and had a little of socialize before the anniversary started.  It was a great night where all the girls dress up and we hire a makeup artist for this special night.  All friend from high school, college were gather at the day for some catch up.  Time really flies, I might knowing my best friend for almost 2 decades!

In short, it was a beautiful anniversary. A great work and effort was done.  Wish you and your family be happy and good health always!
