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. Since it was a big order for one person to do alone and didn't have much time to do it, I went and bought myself a NEW TOY....a red Kitchen Aid Artisan.

My baby.....Kitchen Aid Artisan.

7/2009 Finally, I got my diploma in Cake Decorating from Squires Kitchen International School of Cake Decorating and Sugarcraft. These are the projects that I did.

15/8/2008 - until the next morning. Had a wedding cake also a last minute order (3pm) to cook "mee hoon goreng" for 150 people. Sorry, no pictures of the mee hoon...was too busy to take pic.

26/1/2008 It was a CRAZY 2 days of baking. Had a "big" order to bake 13 (14'' x 11") cakes. Had only 3 days notice because the person who was supposed to do it cancelled. Later in April got another repeat order for 8 (9" x 9") cakes. This time it wasn't at a short notice.
