This happened for a reason... Hong Kong Superstar Donnie is celebrating his birthday in Singapore. He was here partly because of his new movie gala. As such, my ex-colleagues asked if I am interested tto sponsor birthday cupcakes for him. Well.... why not?
HapiCakes is happy to be part of Donnie Yen's 甄子丹Birthday at the Gala Premiere of "WU XIA"《武俠》at Golden Village VivoCity on 19 July 2011.
Many of you if you have been following Jacqueline, you would have notice her top of the world flower - Open Peony. I have always wanted to try one, but is always so difficult without any guildance. Nevertheless, I tell myself, I must try to figure how. Today, I have a chance to try on for my sis's birthday. Staring at her hundred pictures of different angle of peony, finally I sort of figure it out... (given the slight talent I have in flowers!!! lolz) What's your take on my peony comparing to Jacqueline? lolz... not bad right? Yes, and guess what, I managed to get a few seconds of her attention by commenting on my page on this flower. Oooooh... I am so overwhelmed!!! And so I am going to share it here... :)
There's always 1st time, 1st trial in everything we do in life. This time, I try making a cupcake bouquet for my MIL's Birthday. Nothing fancy.. basically just buttercream frosting on the cupcakes and finding some sticks to stick it onto the cake! And of course, most importantly to decorate it with some colourful ribbons.
Today is my hubby's birthday. Making figurines can be time cosuming and tedious and detailed!!!
And so, since I have to make 2 more other cakes for my beloved sister and niece, so I cut it short by "chopping" off the golfer's leg, as such having him to stick to the grass "pretending he is being stuck" action!!!
Happy Birthday my darling! Love you always!
And so, after rushing for hubby's cake, next up - my sis turn! I reckon I always love to challenge myself, figurine is one, and again, drying time is necessary for sugar flowers. And this time, I have to quickly dry all the peonies flowers in a day, and quickly assemble them in a stalk for the following day. I pray for no hipcups, no mistakes, and most importantly no breakage! (yes, no no as I don't have extras to put it back on!!!)
After struggling through, and ta-da.... Yellow Peony Birthday Cake!
Last but not least... this time, easy peasy... The Present Box Cake!
My very 1st attempt of a 3 Wedding Cake... I have absolutely no clue of how to do a sugar flower rose. And thank you Mr Google and Mr YouTube. They indeed helped me a lot... I hope I have do it justice! Phew!
Ta-da.... presenting a pink affair... to my favourite colour. A 3 tier wedding cake!
