Apple CraZEe

Why is everybody craze for apple product??

I got my first apple product – iPhone on Dec 2007.  It was a birthday present from my hubby.  I remembered I wasn’t impressed by a huge phone that could not fit in my clutch!

I told my hubby that I only need a phone that can call, send messages and take pictures! I do not need a Palm!  I do not need a complicated phone!  That’s all my complaint when I have it…

after a week of using it, I admit that I’m addicted to iPhone!  It definitely is a good pal for me!  Im still using the same OLD iphone – generation1 until today March 2011.  I couldn’t live without my iPhone for sure!

It wakes me up every morning! It updates my status in Facebook! It took my pictures and send it out for FREE tru Whatsapp! It reads story books for my daughter! Its a toy for my daughter while Im driving! Its a toy for me while Im waiting for my daughter’s ballet class!  And so much more…

My recent order – iPhone cupcakes are definitely a big challenge for me!  And I never forget to to include a cool apple box for this KooL gadget!

This is the sweetest moment where two lovely couple commit with their life partner to begin with a new chapter in life.

The cake was ordered for Catherine’s Birthday Celebration.  Then her bf decided to proposed on that day and I was asked to amend the figurine to have him bend down for proposing, of course including a box with ring!

Congratulations Catherine!

May you have a blessed Marriage… Luv Tweet

I made this family cupcake last August while my dad celebrated his 75th Birthday.

I used to have the whole family members that include 13 family members.

5 members from my big brother; 3 family members from my sister and another 3 family members from myself.

When the party was over… the kids were too excited about their own figurine, after some playing, those figurine have to stay in the trash…

I manage to kept some for photo shooting purposes as a good memories…

A Day to Celebrate – Wedding Anniversary

on Valentine's DayFEB 14 – Valentine’s Day.

My friend starts to ask if I will have any cupcakes for sale on this Special event.  I was so busy with CNY celebration which I do not intend to stretch myself for Valentine’s Day.

A week before Valentine’s Day,  I had some left over cupcakes from CNY and I started to decorate with   –  I ♥ U so that I can post something for my blog.  Right after I posted the picture at Facebook-tweethomemade , friends started to ask if they could place order?  hmm… why not?

One of my high school friend would like to prepare her celebration for Wedding Anniversary that falls on Valentine’s Day and she asked for my recommendation.  So I immediately look at her facebook photo and get all related information and proposed a family cupcakes include herself – Evian, hubby and her new born – Annabel, and not to forgot to place their wedding date on this mini cake.  A White cake box is rather boring, so I gave a simple touch on the box. (The complete package is still with me, i do hope that i can put a smile on her face when i deliver to her this evening!)

Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Anniversary to Evian & WC

Yip Yip Hooray! Whoppie Pie

My Initial intention is to make Macaron.  I love it at first site when I visited Philippines.  A correction, I LOVE to watch it as they are so cute and pretty.  They are very colorful and it makes you want to buy it and taste it!  Unfortunately, they are good to see but not really good to eat it as they are Super Duper Sweet!  The recipe of macaron called for icing sugar so that you can see a smooth surface of the dessert with the pretty skirting around it!  On top of that, a meringue-base filling will be added to it!  A double sweet dessert for me as I’m a baker who will reduce sugar in every of my recipe!

Then I came across A Baked Creation.  I love the whoopie pie pictures, then I get to learn her recipe.  Whoopie pie is actually made of two round mound-shaped pieces of chocolate cake with cream sandwich between them.  Check it out the recipe below – the chocolate cake taste super bold and it blend well with whip cream.
