The best birthday ever!

Ever wonder being a cake decorator, what type of cake would you want to receive on your birthday?

This has been a question I have been asking myself.. but never get a answer. After being a cake decorator, I have no more birthday cakes to celebrate as many of my friends would reckon I will and can bake cake for myself. To be honest, I don't. I always feel that is funny to bake and decorate my own birthday cake. So, for these few years I have no cake on my birthday. 

So as usual, birthday is just another day, I normally will just be a couch potato for a day. Strangely, hubby keep arranging me to go shopping with my sis. He even went all the way out to arrange us to have lunch and tea after. Well, I thought that's pretty nice thought. OK, I have to take the offer, why not? Since everything is paid for.

I went home pretty late, and when I opened the door, I was overdose with the smell of chocolate! I was thinking I am out the whole day and who can be baking in my kitchen. I quickly hurried to the kitchen thinking could  it be I have accidentally leave the oven switch auto on....When I stepped into my kitchen, I am surprised with a cake bake by hubby. The cake was pretty nicely laid on the table. I have no idea how he can bake without my knowledge. Looking at his masterpiece, I am speechless! 

Thou is not a decorative cake, I am happy enough that he put in effort to make me one. I think this has to be my best birthday cake ever. Thank you darling!I feel so blessed.

Inspiration to Creation

Alright, I know I have been quiet after my trip back from Hong Kong.

Let's do a quick update of what is happening on my end. Lately everyone is talking about putting inspiration to creation. Oh well, that's pretty true. Who doesn't need inspiration in everything you do. Remember months back, I did a flower girl cake, it was totally an inspiration I took from a picture when I google for a flower girl dress.

Just a few days ago, I saw a post by Sharon Wee, she was so talking about Inspiration to Creation, which I think she pretty much make an effort in explaining every little details of how she put every inspiration into one piece of creation. It was an awesome post. Take some time  and read on (if you are keen, cos is a very long post).

Yesterday, I shared a book by Carolyne Roehm on my Hapicakes Facebook page. Is a book about all flowers. I am a crazy fans of all pretty flowers, and it was that book I gather all inspirations in making sugar flowers. There's lots of pretty flowers featured on that book, and do check out on some of pretty flowers I shared on my business page.

Before signing off, I so wanting to share this piece of news... Yes, counting down to my new face look of my website. After waiting for a 3 long years, I finally decided to get it done. And I do have a kind soul to help me with the website.... can't wait!!!
