It’s almost end of January now, life is getting slightly busier because my eldest has started Standard 1, and there are more activities and classes that both the children have to attend (and I have to chauffer them to class, and accompanied them in some of their classes).
These were orders that I took in December [...]

My eldest and youngest daughters celebrated their birthdays respectively in November and December.
I made some cupcakes for a joint celebration in their school. I had the cupcake deisgn drawn up, and got approval from both of them. They wanted some kind of ‘lollipop’ toppers. Initially, they wanted lollipop biscuit as toppers, but that will [...]

Lee Yen celebrated her daughter’s 1st birthday last month, and she ordered cupcakes, and biscuits as party favours from me, all with butterfly theme.
I was under some pressure when I knew she was getting a party supplier to help her with the theme. Luckily she was very easy to work with, and she told me [...]

Taken from wikipedia :
A génoise cake (Genoese cake or Genovese cake) that does not use any chemical leavening, instead, use air suspended in the batter during mixing to give volume to the cake. It is a whole-egg cake, unlike some other sponge cakes that beat their yolks and whites of the eggs separately.

The first time [...]

I was glancing and flipping through cook books in the book shop (which is what I like to do when I go to the bookshop with my daughters). One of the books that caught my attention that day was Cupcakes From the Primrose Bakery.

The cover of the book caught my attention, and when I read [...]

My youngest’s birthday falls on the 28th December. She didn’t want a celebration like her sister’s, and originally didn’t want any cake as well, but decided to demand for some on the actual day. So I just baked a batch of orange butter cupcakes on her actual birthday to celebrate.
I used the left over chocolate [...]

I made these for my neighbour, Kathy’s MIL’s birthday, the design is exactly the same as the cupcakes I made for the girls’ school party.

And glad she liked it.

The celebration and the baking of cupcakes doesn’t seem to end. I baked another batch of cupcakes for two occasions :
1) for my extended family when we met up for dinner on Zara’s actual birthday
2) to bring to a neighbour’s BBQ lunch

As these are more for adults, I topped it with jelly beans from Jelly [...]

Cupcakes are easy to make, if you burnt one or two in the process, you still have the rest of the lot to fall back on. Unlike a cake, if you burnt it, you’ll have to make them all over again.
I always make mine using butter vanilla flavour. My hubs and I like them plain. [...]

My 5 year old is very into mermaids these days; ask her who her favourite princess is, and she’ll say it’s Ariel; and she always pretends to be one by ’swimming’ (more like slithering actually) around the house with a cloth over her legs (that’s her tail).
For her 5th birthday, I decided to make her [...]
