Travelling cakes....

Latest update: Just as i was beginning to relax from heavy baking activities last few days, all my 3 boys started falling ill. First to go down was the youngest but now recovering, and the 2 abangs follow suit. Fever, cough and stuff noses....but thank God they are not whiners....i just monitor their temperature and ensure that the medicines are taken on time...

Since i started taking orders slightly more than a year ago, very often the orders came from outside Seremban. Most outstation orders were from KL, which is my hometown albeit the reason i took the orders. Most of the times, i did not charge for delivery fees but if there was no errands for me to do in KL on that particular delivery date, the fees was very mimimal. And if the order was above RM500.00, the delivery fees is waived.
My cakes have travelled the farthest to Kota Kinabalu, Kuantan and Kota Bharu and quite regularly to Melaka, Port Dickson and of course KL and towns around Seremban. To the Ks cities , the customer collected the cakes either in Seremban or KL, then the cakes travelled with them. The nearer towns, i would deliver the cakes personally. I would try to get the boys to tag along.



2000 pcs choc moist cupcakes for wedding favors were delivered to Port Dickson.


These 2 sets of engagement hantaran travelled to Melaka.
This simple mum and son edible image birthday cake was delivered to Tmn Ampangan Seremban.

The earlier posted pastel hantaran set traveled to Johor and Blue on white was delivered to KL....

Hi Zai,

Hope your boys get better soon. I just had my rounds of my Florence Nightingale shift last week :)

You have to take care of yourself, too. Make sure you take whatever supplements (especially extra doses of Vit C!)

* I tengok the choc moist cupcakes in the box tu pun, I dah drool...Belum lagi tengok betul-betul depan mata!

Salam Kak Zai,

I came across your comment on edelweiss' blog in which you wrote that you never got a reply from me.

Honestly Kak I never received your email, let alone having the heart not to reply it. Maybe it went into my spambox I am uncertain to why I didn't get it. But I am so so sorry if you had a preconceived impression about me being silent regarding your request to learn. I have never not replied any of the emails, I take pride in writing back, unless of course I didn't get them in the first place. So sorry for the misunderstanding, I apologize if you were disheartened in any way. Do write to me again if you have the time k. Anyway looking at all your beautiful cakes, i doubt you need any lessons from me. You are doing wonderful Kak!
