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.

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.

For her 5th birthday, I decided to make her [...]

For my daughter’s 4th birthday, I was looking around for someone who could make nice looking cupcakes for a reasonable price. I needed about 60 of them, it would cost me a lot if [...]

I hate the plasticky taste of the fondant (a house brand I bought from [...]
