Engagement gifts for someone in Malacca....



A few week ago while taking a breather from cleaning up my apartment in KL, I received a call from a not familiar number. The caller asked if i was able to accommodate her request for engagement gifts of cupcakes on 18 of July. As I was only halfway done with the apartment, I requested her to email me her details and send a few samples for me to look at later at home. When she told me she was from Malacca, i was concerned about delivering the cupcakes. She eased my worry when she told me she would make the arrangement to collect them in Seremban. She wanted peach color and i came out with a simple sweet fondant flowers arrangement. On the 18th evening, i handed over the cupcakes to her brother at Seremban tollUpdate: this is what i used to get the criss cross lines on the fondant.....

min,

i used paper casing which my former staff bought for me from Ikea years ago...later i will put up the picture...i tried with normal sifter but the lines were too fine...

ms hart,

i think its very sweet too...honestly speaking at first i call this color pink until i was scolded by the lady who sold me the tiny ribbon...so rajin she showed me the diff between pink and peach ha ha ha....
