Playing with colours

A few customers have told me that they like my cakes because of how I play with the colours. It makes the cake pop and kids especially really get attracted to it. Colours really set the right mood for any cake. Soft, romantic colours for wedding and engagement cakes and pretty, warm colours for birthday cakes. But for me, one thing that is always the same for any type of cake is that there must be a contrast of a few different colours so that the cake isn't boring coz afterall, it is just a cake! so don't be afraid to play with even the brightest colours!

Family Reunion cake. Bright, fun colours for a happy family gathering.

Birthday cakes should always be bright and cheery. But the background is usually a lighter shade of colour.

Romantic white engagement cake with a pop of red and pink.

Come back for more!

"Wonderful" start

I am officially the greatest genius the world has ever witnessed because I travel all the way from cheras to desa pandan without bringing the keys to my apartment. Now I'm stuck here outside of my house waiting to be rescued by my brother whose bringing me the keys. Just great. Luckily I get the internet connection from my house and my hour won't just be wasted doing nothing. So to cheer myself up, I'm gonna share some pictures of my beautiful cakes that I am so proud of. I want all of you to know that I put so much effort in making your cakes and making sure its beautiful and just knowing that you guys love it and how it makes your special occassion even more meaningful is enough to make my day..

Oh along dah sampai! cepatnye! yay!

The skull cake. love this.

More cakes and new space part 2

Gooooood Morning! I'm up early today. Got lots of things to do. For those who have been waiting for my reply on quotations etc, sorry to keep you waiting but I will reply all of you today insyallah.. Here are some of our latest cake projects before I tell you guys more about the new space..

Took some pictures at Sofia's house. Cantik kan?
Sofia's engagement "mini" pelamin. very pretty.

So remember last week I told you about our home improvement project? We revamped our old vacant apartment so that we could use it as our new workspace. Let's look at the before and after pictures..

1)Living Room: The marble floors were polished and the walls are given a new coat of paint. I chose light yellow because I wanted the room to have a bright feel and also because I'm so bored of white walls. Also, we changed the old light fixtures. The dining area gets a slightly more fancy light and I actually had it lowered another 5 inches than in the picture. oh and also we painted all the doors white including the main door which was changed into a new solid wood door.


2) Bedroom 1: This is the room beside the master bedroom. All the rooms are given a fresh coat of paint and the parquet was changed to tiles. Also, the window frames were change to new metal frames and the light fixture is also new. This room will be the office/bedroom.
After (note the funky light and excuse the messy furniture)
3) Master Bedroom: Same thing was done with the master bedroom. new floors, new paint and new window frames.

4) Bedroom 2: Also the same thing for bedroom 2. new floors, new paint and new window frames.

5) Kitchen & bathroom: This has got to be the best makeover in the whole house. The kitchen was in the worst condition and now its pretty and sparkly and the layout is more practical. The kitchen used to have a door (you can't see it in any of the pictures,its on the left side.) which was actually beside the front door, but we had it closed to give more space.


The bathroom are given new plastic sliding doors so they don't eat up space and since they're plastic, they last longer and are easier to clean and maintained.

We added the shower head. Before this, the bathroom had a big water container (kolah air. heh.) which took up a lot of space. Now it feels bigger. We added simple, inexpensive bathroom accessories from Ikea.
After after.
We've now added more furnitures and decorations to the space and I've already started doing my cake deco work there. I'll update more pictures later.. =)
