Is it really buttercream?

Hello hello hello! Hows it goin everybody. I've been missing for awhile. Been helping out Hana Tajima with her RE-WORK workshop. Have you heard of it? But I've still been making cakes. Mostly buttercream cakes. Its actually easier to decorate with buttercream. At least for me. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, Buttercream is the soft white-coloured cream people use to cover and decorate a cake. Besides buttercream, there's fondant or royal icing cakes which are hard and last longer which makes it more suitable for wedding or hantaran cakes especially in Malaysia's hot weather.

However, buttercream cakes are usually more affordable. I don't usually recommend bride to be's to have a buttercream cake as their wedding or hantaran cakes because it's more difficult to handle and is a hassle to bring for long distance travel. But when people still request for them, I try my best nonetheless to make a beautiful cake for your special day.

The following cake is one of my favorites because people would wonder if that's really made from buttercream. My grandma actually touched it to make sure whether it's hard or soft! I was in awe when she did that, but it was kinda funny. heh.

Buttercream flowers piped by hand

love the colors

You can even make 2D drawing or prints by just piping buttercream..

Funky Zebra Prints

More flowers. This is for an engagement. I've made this design before but in another colour.

If that looks complicated for you to do yourself, a messy look is always in. Make your own topper using paper, and you're good to go!

heart shaped sprinkles dress up this bachelorette party cake!

How do you like them? I'm planning to organize a Buttercream Technique Class where you can learn all about the basics of buttercream and different kinds of piping techniques. So if you are interested, just drop me an email and I'll keep you posted on the details ;)

I want to go to London!

I would love to go to London. But this isn't really about me. This is about another girl who wants to go to London and requested for a London theme birthday cake. So that's I gave her. London on a cake :)

First, I sketch all things "London"..

Then I sketch the cake choices.And guess which one they chose??

Yup. The second one.

And TADA!!

I prepared the London bridge, Big Ben and London Eye ahead of time..

And this is the end result :)
 I'm quite proud of this cake because of the details that I did. It's one of the most detailed cake that I've done so far. =D

The next cake is the most chocolaty cake ever and I call it the SUPERDUPER CHOCOLATE CAKE! It's a very chocolate cake covered in the most delicious chocolate ganache, covered AGAIN with tons of M&M's.

I am not kidding you when I say I am drooling right now.

This cake is for a bachelorette party so I made gumpaste bra and panties and put it on top.
Hubba Hubba!! Lacey white lingerie..arrr. hihi

Come again soon!

Ask me questions about eating!

Kak yan, did you study bakery?

I took a short course at ICCA in Kota Damansara. But honestly, I don't think it was enough. I hope in the near future I can take a proper diploma course in patisserie and who knows, I can become a certified pastry chef. =)

Ask me anything

You're the 'MASTERCHEF' of Ayan and Mama kan? Hihi...I love your prettyworks! So inspiring! =)

Thanks awak! nanti saya kalau saya buat classes join la k!

Ask me anything

where do you buy meringue powder?

Oh cool a baking question. I buy from wilton or Bake with Yen sells them too. The wilton one is more expensive but better quality. But the one at Bake with Yen works well too..

Ask me anything
