Colors, colors and colors everywhere......


Its started on Friday morning. I baked carrot walnut cupcakes. The theme requested was gold. Quite popular color theme. The lady requested this via sms and phone calls only. The cuppies were for the sister's wedding. I started dressing up the cuppies after settling the boys' need like fetching the youngest from school, served him and the angah lunch and angah went at 1.00 for Friday prayers and to school after that. The lady came and collected the cuppies at 4.

After the gold theme, i made up the pastels colors butter cream hantaran. The cuppies were carrot walnut so i only did the baking once on Friday. This order was from PD and was collected at 7 pm due horrendous traffic jam in Seremban town that evening. The promised time was 6.

On Saturday morning after the Suboh, i baked vanilla cup cakes. I received the call for this order on Thursday morning. The deco and color were left at my whims and fancies, and i titled this set as Pink fantasy ha ha ha....my boys asked me why and i told them there were no real flowers which look like these. I walked 3 houses away about 9 am to deliver this set. She is my neighbor. This set was going to travel to Shah Alam.
Later that Saturday evening, the layering of this agar-agar was made. Its a bit time consuming but i just love the color. This agar-agar was requested by Kak Ezza together with the below hantaran cupcakes and a box of cupcakes with simple deco for makan2 after her daughter's engagement ceremony.

Saturday night, i baked vanilla and choc cuppies for the hantaran set and makan2. I am a minimalist in many ways and thats reflects in my cake deco too. Less is more to me .This last set was sent to Taman nearby my house on Sunday morning before going to Klang to deliver Kak Ezza's order. This set was requested by Kay, for makan2. Then off my husband and i to Klang. We made it at sharp 11 o'clock as the traffic was good. Chatted for awhile with Kak Ezzah and best of all we were the first to eat the food for her kenduri. I was segan to take picture of the food, dah lah first to makan nak ambik2 gambar pulak. She cooked a mean gulai cili padi salted fish with nenas, the kurma daging was really fantastic, kerabu kacang botol was superb, i saw ayam masak merah but i didnt taste it, fried ikan masin and the sambal belacan made my ears red ha ha ha.......love it Kak Ezza, a few kenduri food which i took second helpings dengan tak malunyer he he...
We made our move just after lunch as she was getting busy with other guests and all. We went to an old friend's place near Klang town. He was my hubby house mate when we were in the States. And as usual when old friends met, we lost time just yakking and yakking about things going on with our life, the kiddos, the work, the politic and the raising cost of living. Not to miss was the reminiscing of old times. When i looked up at the time on the handphone, it was just after 3.00 pm and they were supposed to leave for Muar for a kenduri ha ha ha. We made our way out but between getting into the car and saying goodbyes it took another half hour by the time we were on the road, it was almost 4.00.
We decided to go to Ikea, lama tak ronda he he....for a day before Chinese New Year, the place was quite crowded. Did some window shopping and left for Penang Village in Taman Tun for prawn mee. The hubby was so like craving for that dishes. I ate the mee curry and we had same drink of the Kalamansi thingy. We headed for Seremban shortly and was home sweet home an hour later, almost 8.00 pm .....and lo and behold...after a shower my legs started wobbling and i just felt so tired, i konged out on the bed before the head hit the pillows ha ha ha......When i woke up it was 6.00 am Monday morning and its Chinese New Year.

All the cupcakes are soooo pretty, and I bet they taste awesome, too! I couldn't decide which ones are my favourites. Semua cantik :)

The way you wrote how you go about baking and decorating, and deciding on how the designs should be for each of the cuppies - macam so, so easy lah, Zai :)

I rasa macam nak belajar buat cupcakes and deco lah pulak lepas ni (which is SO not me! Hehehe!)
