Cupcakes in the oven... now what type of frosting should I make to go with that vanilla cuppies? A simple Vanila Buttercream? Vanila Bean? Salted Caramel? Oh the possibilities! I have been known to stay up all hours of the night to perfect my buttercream recipe... and I have a lot of wonderful frostings in my repertoire, many of which include whipped egg whites, caramelised sugar, etc... (these take a lot of time to prepare... *sigh*)
But no, not today. Since all those frosting takes time to prepare...so, I opted for the easiest frosting ever - simple buttercream.
...simple buttercream toppings - no time to do that fondant 'mortar board and scroll' thingy...
Cream 1 stick of butter. Add powdered sugar until it reaches the desired consistency (about 2-3 cups). Add a spash of milk and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. TA-DA... you have buttercream frosting. I had some heavy cream, left over from making white pasta sauce, so I whipped that and folded it into the butercream (why not at this point?). . Somehow, against all odds, the frostings turned out to be delicious.
My sis-in-law came, she was excited, she loved them. I also knew that my sis-in-law will be coming with her three wonderfuld kids, so I made few extras for them. Those little darlings.... :)
He Sis, next time no last minute request OK - baking is not meant to be done on a whim..! ...yes....muuaah.... I Love You Too Sis...!

Here is a wedding 'Hantaran' cupcakes I made recently, ordered by my customer, for her friend's wedding
I iced the cupcakes with buttercream and then cover it with fondant for that smoother finished. Then I decorated each cupcake with Red and White gumpaste rose - as the wedding theme is "Red & White".
...chocolate moist cupcakes decorated with intricately designed handmade sugar flowers and butterflies...

The iced cake halves were stacked with the cut side down to make a half circle shape for the purse. Then I did a crumb layer of frosting so that I could adhere the fondant on top of it. I coloured the plain white fondant, pink, and rolled it out and cut to fit the shape of the cake.
Happy Birthday Lyn...!

Another set of cuppies, the Hari Raya theme.
Some say ketupat is symbol of any kind of people mistake.
We hope ketupat tradition can make us admit our mistakes so we can apologize each other.
We can find it in the complexity of making ketupat pack. Ketupat also shows the purity of heart after mistake apologize. We can find it from the color of ketupat after we cut it into two parts.
... and this one.... its just 'Yeop & Tipah', happy dapat duit Raya.. :)

Tangerine and Oranges are frequently displayed in homes and stores. Tangerines are symbolic of good luck and Oranges are symbolic of wealth. These Chinese New Year symbols have developed through a language pun, the word for Tangerine having the same sound as "luck" in Chinese, and the word for orange having the same sound as "wealth"....aahhhh... this smiling little boy.... must have got plenty of 'Ang Pau'...!
Here you go, a complete set...
Thanks Zack & Neeza for the order...
