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 [...]

Today is Donzhi (冬至) Festival or Winter Solstice.
Scientifically From Wikipedia it means :
The winter solstice occurs exactly when the Earth’s axial tilt is farthest away from the sun at its maximum of 23° 26′. Though the winter solstice lasts only a moment in time, the term is also a turning point to midwinter or the [...]

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 [...]

Last week I celebrated my birthday.

My hubs is the kind who cannot seem to be able to remember my birthday or aniversary dates unless I remind him or the children remind him, he has been getting the dates wrong like forever. He’s also not the sort who’s bothered to spend effort to do something [...]

Ju who reads my blog, asked me sometime in January if I could make her some cupcakes and she’ll pay me for them.
That was my very first cake order with payment.
She was in fact my only paying customer. Haha. She subsequently ordered two more times from me, and the last order was just last Friday.
She [...]

Hubs’ birthday was on Monday. Since we were out the whole day (and night) on Sunday, I had to wake up slightly earlier on Monday to bake him his birthday cake.
He loves coconut, so I thought I should try to make him a cake with coconut milk; and found this Southen (Manhattan) Coconut Cake recipe [...]

Chinese New Year is a time we feast, eating together with family and friends.
Since 3 years ago, we’d started hosting the Chinese New Year eve dinner instead of my MIL. My hubs come from a small family, his parents, his eldest sister and his younger brother. Since we started hosting the dinner, we’d been [...]

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 [...]
