Something nice & a short break

If you have been following my blog, you would have probably noticed what I am really into right now. Yup, you said it! Decorative cupcakes. :) I really enjoy making these cute cupcakes and seeing the end result plus the smiles on the recipient is the best reward I can get.;) It might be hard to for some to understand as this is quite a time consuming thing, just to be done on small little cakes. But I find decorating cupcakes are much more intricate and more variety in decorations. Furthermore it lets everyone have their own "edible" art to enjoy rather then just cutting out a slice of a big cake which probably have "destroyed" the art on the cake. :-P Don't get me wrong, I still love to make big cakes...just that it's hard to slice into one nicely decorated one sometimes, hahaha! Since it's my niece and my sister-in-law's birthday this week, I seize the opportunity to make something nice for them. Cupcakes of course. ;)
This is again one of those really pressing for time kind of thing. So pardon my lighting for the pictures. Decided to make only a dozen of these cupcakes because bringing it down to Singapore can be quite a challenge! Worrying if the fondant will melt is a major concern and furthermore not wanting to accidentally "destroy" the cupcakes during the whole trip can be pretty stressful! But good thing it was safely delivered to my niece and SIL's hands. *phew*
I am so glad they like the cupcakes I made for them....really paid off all the effort I put in to making them. ;) Happy Birthday Andrea & Veronica! Hope you both have a wonderful and blissful birthday this year!Besides the cupcakes I made for my niece and my SIL. I had some left over batter which I made into smaller cupcakes and piped some simple designs for my friend's kids to enjoy. :) Looking at the colours itself can really bring a smile on anyone's face. ;)

I shan't go on too long on this post as I have some urgent stuff I need to attend to. But just some heads up that I will be taking a break for a few days. So will not be putting up any post for awhile. No worries, be back real soon and will be posting up more interesting and yummy stuff for all to see. ;) For now, stay cheerful and healthy guys! See you all soon!

Hi BB,

Thanks a million for the cup cakes. It's the first time in our lives to receive "cup birthday cake". It's so beautiful that other than those that I have shared with my neighbours, the whole box is still intact. Whenever Andrea wanted to eat it, she ended up putting back into the fridge again after looking at them. She said she "bu she de" eat.
Thanks again and enjoy your break.

Hi Veron,
Haha, is it?! Oh dear, I should have made simpler ones then! ;P But I am so glad that you both like the cupcakes, makes everything all worth it. :) Tell Andrea to eat the cupcakes, don't "bu she de". If I'm still in Singapore in the coming months, will definitely make some more cute cupcakes for you guys. ;)
