Sizes and Flavours

Size of a cake depends on the shape of the pan. Usually it is around 1.2-1.6 kg. I always quote the weight of the cake without icing.

For flavours, there is a choice of the normal butter or chocolate cake using imported chocolate powder, almond cake using real almonds, orange cake using fresh orange juice and fruit cake. All cakes are made with 100% imported butter, no substitutes like margarine or butter spread, for a really good taste.

Icing are made from 100% butter or fondant. There are some occasions the icing can be royal icing, chocolate ganache or buttercream.

A Little Bit Of This and That

5/8/2009 Halim Bridal ordered 1000 pcs (2"x2.5"x1") and 30 pcs (2"x2"x3") fruit cakes for his clients. Took me 7 days to bake all the cakes. Cutting and packaging was done by my friend Diana.

Teachers' Day - Cookie Bouquet

Every year on Teachers' Day, students will bring all sorts of presents for their teachers. Gifts were the usual ones like flowers, chocolates, cards, mugs, scarfs etc. For the very well to do students, they give silk materials to their teachers to make baju kurung. Every year is the same I decided to do something different. Something homemade which the children can help with. A browse in the internet, I found an idea to make cookie bouquet. The children helped choosing the mugs, cookie patterns, icing colours dan of course making the cookies. It was a great project and a good gift for Teachers' Day. Their teachers were surprised!
