Michael Jackson's inspired?


She called me many months ago asking if i could do agar-agar rainbow. Never heard of it, asked around and i learned agar-agar magic instead. The agar-agar was supposed to be her wedding favors, she wanted something "lain dari yang lain", but the deal was never materialised. And i thought i would lose her as a customer, maybe not my 'rezeki', i told myself. A few days later, she mailed me if i could do a fondant hantaran cake and told me she wanted the cake ala2 Maya Karin's wedding cake. Alamak, i said to myself.....i never saw 'the' wedding cake. I browsed the net and it was 3 tiers cake, with small black flowers at the side and one big black flower ribbon on top. Of course, for my customer 1 cake was enough as it was for the hantaran(gift). Told her ok and she paid me well in advanced. Then started the hunt for flower ribbon, i dont want those typical flower ribbon selling at the wedding thingy shops. I even asked my former staff to make for me but i didnt have the time to go to her place to collect it. No worry Siti, i still want it, do keep it nicely away from the dust.
I found this particular one in different color only 2 weeks ago, when i was getting the box for Kak Ezza daughter's hantaran. Asked the girl if i could have it in black and she said yup...i was very happy when i chose the ribbon. And that cost me RM19.00 you. And so yesterday, i baked the cake at noon, started working on it after 3.00 after my youngest left for his mengaji school. I was so engrossed with it as the ready made fondant i got was not very cooperative. I didn't hear the handphone ringing at all. ...Apology Zai, i felt really bad as she was calling from in front of my house and after she called the house phone.......
I delivered the cake to Taman Tungku Khursiah before i went to fetch my Angah from school. When my sister saw the cake she called it "Michael Jackson cake" ha ha ha...the cake was chocolote moist.

thank u ....bete tu apa? klasik ek?

bella said...

Kak Zai, mmg sekrg nie trend Black and white. Hari tue for my bro's engagement, my sis pilih black and white I punyalah tak suka...but, actually it is lain dari yg lain la...your cake sgt cantik....

zaitgha said...

Bella,

so kalau black and white, kena bykkan la white dari black...i saw a few yg cake dia totally black which i think is not very 'nice' though cantik...how we start a joyous occasion with black i just dont understand...anyway its just my opinion la kan....

ramai lak yg kata this cake cantik...thank u
