Plant vs Zombies

I love playing Plant vs Zombies compared to the Angry Birds game. So how about re-creating them on cakes? Here is my masterpiece Plant.
And now, match begins:
1) The Plant meets the Monster. 
2) The Plant is a goner, no match for the Little Monster!

Mickey & Minnie Mouse

Who doesn't know Mickey and Minnie Mouse, the famous icon of Disney?

I remember growing up watching their cartoons on video cassette at friend's house, having them on almost everywhere - on pencil case, coloring book, pen, eraser, T-shirt and sweaters! I feel proud to own any of their merchandize. Gosh, that was more than 20 years ago! I feel so old now.

Yesterday I was brought back to my childhood when I was given the opportunity to bake a cake for a 3-year old girl who is so much into Mickey & Minnie. I hope the birthday gal loves her cake!

Barney, the Purple Dinosaur

"I love you, You love me, 
 We're a happy family,
 With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you,
 Won't you say you love me too..."

I bet every little kid grew up knowing this song; knowing Barney, the loveable purple dinosaur who comes magically to life to play, sing and dance. Barney is every little kids' growing up icon!

A friend asked for my help to bake her a Barney cake for her two year old nephew who is  passionate of this friendly purple dinosaur. I hope the little man is in favor of his surprise gift from his aunt! 

Happy Birthday little Jay!

Mid Autumn Festival - Mom's Homemade Mooncake Jelly

I am already in the mood of celebrating Mid Autumn Festival or Zhongqiu Festival even though it is still a month to go. The festival is celebrated on the 15th day of the eight month of Chinese Calendar and this year it falls on 12th September when the moon is at it's roundest. The traditional delicacy for this occasion is mooncake - a thin tender skin enveloping a sweet dense filling of normally red bean or lotus paste and contain a whole salted egg yolks in its center.

Nowadays mooncakes is celebrated with a twist - Mooncake jellies. My mom is now busy in her little kitchen preparing the jellies of assorted flavors with fresh fruits fillings - strawberry, mango, kiwi, honeydew & durian. A box would consist of 4 flavors and a little surprise in the center, a jelly yolk to symbolize the full moon!

We are ready to take orders. Kindly PM me at if you would like to order my mom's special homemade recipe. Early birds will get special discounts, so hurry!

Angry Bird & Pigs

Today is my little cheeky's birthday!

My cheeky little nephew turns 6 today. Knowing that he is so into Angry Birds, I gave him a surprise birthday gift full of Angry Birds and Pigs on a cinnamon cream cheese roll cake.

He gave me a ring to thank me for the cake and told me that he is going to wait till his mummy is back from work before cutting the cake. But it seems that the birds and pigs did not survive long (at least till their parents are back from work) as it all ended up in their little tummies. Half of the cake managed to last till later on though *grin*

Happy Birthday Jamie!

Apple Cheese Tart

Question: What do you do when you got too much apples in storage?
Answer: Bake something out of it obviously.

Honestly I am not much a fan of any apple dessert but I got way too much apples in stock. I Google up to find out what I can do with the excess apples and when I found a recipe for apple tart, I thought I should give it a try. What actually attractted me was the added cream cheese fillings. Not only that the recipe is so simple and straightforward, I am, in fact am falling in love with the taste too! Two slices for me is just ain’t enough! Mmmm…mmmmm….

Last Saturday, I tried on two new recipes - Sweet Blanc, a sweet bun with cream cheese filling; and Blueberry Cheese Tarts.

Coincidentally my nephews came and were literally hungry for dinner. I served them with these little cuties and up till when I had to start hiding the pastries from both my nephews; I knew that the recipes turned out to be a success!

Angry Bird & iPad

Question: What do you get when you combine Angry Bird with iPad?
Answer: A happy birthday boy and two overly excited nephews

Today is my elder brother's birthday. I surprise him with an iPad cake since he just bought an iPad2 less than 2-weeks ago. The Angry Birds, well those were actually meant for my nephews as they were so into the game!

So should I call this as 'killing two birds with one stone'...errr, or should be 'killing two pigs with a bird? *smirk*

Princess Shernice turned ONE

Princess Shernice turned ONE yesterday!

Her mummy requested me to help her with little Shernice’s birthday cake and she got only two wishes – a chocolate cake and something pretty for her little princess. So what would be more perfect that having a chocolate with blueberry filling cupcakes adorned with princess-y themed fondant decorations. I proposed for a two-tier with the center piece of a little girl sitting on a 5” inch chocolate cake layered with blueberry and butter cream. She bought the idea and here are the outcome *winks* Sweet and pretty just like the birthday princess!

Happy Sweet One Year Old Birthday. May you grow smart and pretty just like your mummy.

All packed and ready for delivery!
