What i had been up to last week.....

Aaahhhhh.......alhamdullillah, i had completed another big task on my own but of course with the support of my boys, the young and the old . This time the old boy a.k.a the hubby assisted me a lot as the boys were in school during the days. He helped me on Friday night even to the extend that he went to 7 - 11 at midnight to get masking tape to really ensure the boxes i used were secured enough to hold hundreds of wedding favors.
This customer of mine called me in Sept last year and confirmed her order for the favors in Oct. She paid me 80% of the total amount by Dec. She requested for hantaran sets for both side boy/girl later and paid me in full for the 2 sets. After that, she requested for a wedding cake and paid me right after i told her on price. How i wish more people are like her. With prompt payments like this, it made things easier for me to plan . I would get the non edible things first like cake boards and boxes, the casing, the ribbons etc etc etc....And true enough, it was a smooth sailing for me preparing for her request and mind you she added birthday cake and cupcakes for the family birthdays only last week for last Thursday celebration. Also helped that i had invested on huge mixer after my first project..
Birthday cuppies for cousin's wife.
Birthday cake for MIL
Her 'rezeki' to have these gorgeous strawberries with melted choc drizzled on top on the cheesecake for her hantaran to hubby.
Choc Crumble cheesecake with layers of strawberry jam and melted chocolat under the generously sprinkled sliced almonds.
Vanilla cupcakes with cream butter cream rosettes with white ribbon rolled sugar paste.

Wedding cake of 3 kg++ butter cake with butter cream topping and gum paste flowers.

One box at the back, 2 big boxes on the back seat of my tiny car...you think i should get a bigger car??

Busy rupanya sebab tu lah tak nampak. But busy is good. Busy is rezki. Starting tomorrow, I think I will do a disappearing act too for a bit. Terbusy sikit. ALhamdulillah.

Salam Zai,
Happy tengok kawan bertambah maju dalam perusahaannya. Semua keluaraga (termasuk old boy) menyokong. Alhamdulillah. Restu dari keluarga buat semua jadi baik dan berjaya.
Pengangkutan yang baik adalah satu keperluan dalam perniagaan anda. tapi anda sendiri yang tentukan. Kereta besar datang dengan segala yang besarjuga, tak gitu..hahaha...
