Final note…

March 20th, 2010

Hi everyone, thanks for all your kind compliments and continued support of my humble little website. Unfortunately due to some personal commitments that came up, i’m afraid that i won’t be able to take any additional orders from the 22 March onwards until further notice.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the faithful followers of my website for their continued support, and to all my loyal customers that have been ordering their cakes and cupcakes from me, thank you for your continued support and for helping me to spread the word about my cakes to your friends and relatives.

I am very sorry to disappoint everyone with this final note.. but hopefully i’ll be able to continue with my cakes at a later date and hope that it would be soon.

In the meantime, i hope everyone will continue to enjoy my posts and my creations.

For interested readers, do take a look at my cake topper tutorials which provide detailed and simple to understand instructions as well as step by step photos that illustrate each and every single step of making the topper. I believe you’ll fully enjoy these online tutorials and will soon be doing your own little cake toppers. I do hope to add on more tutorials soon and in the meantime if you have any special requests for any tutorials do let me know! :)

Cheers, Serene!!

Cupcakes for a football fan

January 31st, 2010

Football cc 071009

I had a request from Xiuling who wanted some cupcakes for a football fan. However, rather than the usual football cupcakes i’ve been doing, she wanted the cupcakes to include some other items which go with watching a football game! So this became a football themed cupcake with a twist.

The cupcakes basically include beer and a guy watching a football game on tv. I decided to make him look as if he was shouting GOAL when the tv screen had a GOAL sign plus… what’s football without a couple of beers right?

I liked the end result of the cupcakes and hoped Xiuling liked it to since she gave me the inspiration for the cupcake idea! :)

Father and son cake!

January 30th, 2010

Husband n FIL cake 130909
Shierly contacted me and ask if i could do a cake of her husband and her father in law who celebrate their birthdays on the same date.

She wanted me to do a figurine of both the father and son on the cake and after thinking about it, i decided to do both of the figurines sitting on the sofa.

Due to the humid weather, the figurines ended up a little wet.. but i thought they turned out ok. The clothes both figurines are wearing are based on a picture that the customer provided to me.

Naughty x-rated cupcakes for a guy!

January 6th, 2010

As per the title, please be warned, these cupcakes are really x-rated… so make sure there are no kids around yah :) I haven’t figured out a way to censor the cupcakes unless someone clicks on it to view it.. so if any savvy people out there know how i can go about doing that, do let me know!

I had gotten this request from Nadia who wanted some x-rated naughty cupcakes for Thomas… she had done some research about the cupcake designs she wanted and asked if i could do something similar. She had seen some of the other naughty cupcakes i had previously made, but she wanted something different.

After some discussions these were the cupcakes i came out with. I know it’s a little risque but i think Nadia loved them and i am assuming Thomas would have had a blast with these cupcakes as well! :)

Blueberry cheesecake!

November 14th, 2009

Dressed blueberry cheesecake

My brother’s birthday was coming up and as usual we would be having a family dinner to celebrate his birthday. Anyway, i remembered his girlfriend had mentioned that he wasn’t much of a cake fan, but loved blueberry cheesecake.

So i decided to make him a blueberry cheesecake to celebrate his birthday. The problem was.. cheesecake has always been very scary for me as my cheesecake has always always cracked. So i was a little worried when i decided to go ahead and make the cake for him. At the back of my mind, i was thinking that if it did crack.. it’s only family right.. so doesn’t matter… but that didn’t relieve my anxiety one bit.

So after researching to see what was the main reason behind cheesecake cracking, i realised it’s either cost the oven is too hot, or the cheesecake is overbaked, or you overbeat it when mixing all the ingredients in. Argghh…

Well.. i just bit my tongue and just decided to go ahead to bake it and just keep my fingers crossed that all would go well. Once i placed the cake into the oven, i spent nearly every 1/2 hour checking on the cake and hoping and praying that the cake wouldn’t crack. When i finally deemed the cake cooked and took it out i was ecstatic to see that it hadn’t cracked!! I loved too the look of the blueberry syrup ripples that i had going through the cake as well. Isn’t it gorgeous!

To oomph up the blueberry flavour of the cake, i decided to layer of blueberries on the top of the cake but as i didn’t want the blueberry syrup to drip down the sides of the cake and ruin the look of the cake, i made a little whipped cream border around the edge of the cake to act as a stopper. Then i slowly poured on the blueberries and the syrup on the top of the cake after the cake was well chilled.

The cake turned out fabulous and i was really happy with the way it turned out! :)

I said no problem.. although due to the size of the toppers i of course wouldn’t be able to capture his splitting image.. but she said so long as it looks ok.. she was fine with it. Isn’t she nice :)

Anyway, these were what the final cupcakes looked like. I loved the colour combination :)

Blackforest cake for my FIL

November 14th, 2009

Blackforest cake 040709

As my FIL’s birthday was coming up and since his favourite cake was a blackforest cake, i decided to have a go at making one for him.

I’ve not made such a cake before and decided to do some extensive research online to see if i could find any recipes for making one. After looking at a couple of hundred recipes… i noted the common themes, selected a few that i thought would work best and combined them together.

However, i needed to get hold of some kirtsch first to do a proper blackforest cake. After going to a couple of places, i finally found a bottle of kirtsch at Cold Storage. However the price was definitely out of my price range and considering the fact that i was probably only going to make this recipe once, i thought i’d see if i could find some other alternatives first. In the end, i settled on using a mixture of brandy and kirtsch flavouring i found, i started to bake.

This turned out to be a monster of the cake with 4 layers of 9″ round chocolate sponge cakes soaked in kirsch flavouring, brandy and boiled down cherry syrup. Each layer of cake was sandwiched with oodles of whipped cream, and of course lucious cherries, with additional kirsch, brandy and cherry syrup. After all of that, i covered the whole cake with another layer of whipped cream and to amp up the chocolate flavour, i then covered the whole cake with rich chocolate shavings.

I couldn’t get hold of any fresh cherries so could only accent the whole cake with some canned ones. Next time i definitely would change these with fresh cherries instead.

The final product stood more than 4 inches tall and to date is the biggest cake i’ve ever made. The cake was also delicious with the cherry syrup, kirsch and brandy helping to keep the cake moist and delicious. The cake was quickly gobbled up and was demolished with only crumbs left at the end of the day. A totally yummy dessert!! My only regret was that i didn’t manage to snap any photos of what the inside of the cake looked like after it was cut :p
