Orange & Violet-themed Cupcakes

This order was made based on the color theme, with hand-made sugar roses at the bottom of the cupcakes layout.

These were then delivered all the way to Penang.

Hope the recepient impressed with the gift...(and love).

Cupcakes were chocolate, with dark chocolate buttercream.

Basketweave Cake with Royal Icing Flowers

Another work i have done recently.

Royal icing are basically made of egg whites, icing sugar & water to adjust the consistency.

A variety of colors can be added in to pipe out all sorts of interesting flowers & figure designs.

In this post, i have piped out quite a number of flowers (violet, violet leaves, apple blossom, primrose, pansy, just to name a few...)

The basketweave effect u saw are painstakingly piped out (single lines by single lines, vertically & horizontally) using buttercream icing.

Instead of just slather with buttercream, cake design can be wonderfully enhanced by using this technique, thus create a pleasing effect.

my mind kept on thinking about durians...

NO I AM NOT A BIG FAN OF DURIANs! it's sharp! and not forgetting the smell, it can kill!

no way...

(but my heart kept on wanting my hands to make Durian Butter Cake...)

(my nostrils gonna have a tough time...)

nose :" My Queen, please don't do this to me...please...:( "

heart :" my Queen, so many your heart want to try, you see, got Durian Puff, Durian Cheese Cake, Durian Ice Cream, Durian Chips, Durian Crepe, Durian Swiss Roll, Durian Egg Tart, and they even have Durian Jello (!)"

pause and awkward silence...

heart :" and...and... Roti Canai with Durian!!!"

Queen think :" Wahlao eh..!"

eyes :" look...look... Durian Oreo Cake also got...!"

Queen analyzing & imagining whether profile of these two ingredients matches...


(maybe...and maybe not.)

(its disturbing... i mean of all the ingredients in the world, why Oreos and durians?)

Queen:" my heart, let me think about it, i will come back to you..."

nose:" ooohhh my Queen, once started, there are no turning back...have mercy..."
