Hi Everyone,

It’s that time of year again.. We’re baking to support such a worthy cause..

I will be selling 3 types of cupcakes (Red velvet, Lemon cheesecake AND Chocolate orange/Jaffa – In line with the charity promo colours), $20 for a gift box of 6 standard OR $25 for a gift box of 12 mini available to be picked up on Saturday 21st September at The Handmade Show (between 10.30am and 3.30pm). $5 from each sale will go towards the BigCakeBake charity.

Beeeeeautiful cake for beeeautiful people

A friend asked me if I could do a white choc mud cake with a blue theme for her sister’s birthday.. here’s the result.. they were super happy with the cake.. might have to look into making the cake/icing less sweet and had a tip about adding a citrus flavour to cut through the sweetness from another friend.. woohoo!!


An oceanside celebration..

So I was referred on by a friend to bake some cupcakes for friends of hers who were celebrating their commitment to each other. The theme was Oceanside and I came up with the cupcake concept and also decorated the cupcake tier myself. I hired the cupcake tier and bought most of the material from Spotlight (Navy blues and white rope). The venue was at The Victorian, Albert Park.

Ocean: Silver paper, Chocolate mud cake, Blue & White Vanilla icing and Belgian Chocolate seashell (white marbled)
Beach: Gold paper, Vanilla cake, Salted caramel icing, Toasted coconut and Belgian Chocolate seashell (cream marbled)


And now for the more professional shots taken by Gavin Luu, friend and photographer who also takes photos for Joanie of OneWeddingWish. Thanks soooooo much Gav!!


Thanks J&C for the honour and I had such a great time doing them for you.. wishing you all the happinness for years to come!

Tempting Choc Mud Cake

One super order, dark choc mud cake with ganache for Jess. It was supposed to be for 25 people but apparently they loved it so much that they ate it continuously throughout the day, little by little, which meant it probably fed double the amount of people for the day.. great great feedback for this cake!


Raph’s 21st Birthday Party

So I had part-volunteered to do this for Raph’s party cos it would have been an awesome learning experience catering for a function and also I have known Raph for about 5 years now and it was such a privilege to be “part-of-the-family”…

Catered for 150 guests, all desserts of course: 1. Gourmet Jelly Slice in Wine Taster glasses (mango vanilla, pandan coconut and raspberry vanilla) using Pannacotta as the middle rather than the usual jelly slice ingredients, 2. Dark Choc Ganache Brownies and Walnut Brownies and 3. Banana cake with cream cheese icing
