Cupcakes for my love

I haven’t been updating this blog in the longest time. A lot has happened but nevertheless, I never stopped baking completely.

In fact, I have been baking for my sweetheart. I have been very busy with work but when my boss gave me a box of strawberries, I just had to bake strawberry cupcakes since the strawberries were very sour.

So, I pureed the strawberries, cook them with sugar and mix them into my normal plain cupcake mix and the result? Scrumptious cupcakes 🙂

I managed to bake and gave some to my brother in law and he enjoyed them very much. I asked my sweetheart to drop by my house to collect some cupcakes. There will be cupcakes to come for my loved ones.

Enjoy the pictures below.

Ps: I just realised how awesome my brother in law is. He actually cares about my interest in Hello Kitty that he bought me those figurines from Japan and he helped me to arrange them for my cupcakes display. I’m happy that I have a brother who genuinely cares about me. I pray that his marriage with my sister will last forever. Amin.

Chocolate cupcakes for Birthday Boy

I received my first birthday cupcake order for an adorable 3 year old kid. My colleague wanted to give a wonderful birthday celebration for her son and she ordered 18 pieces of chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting.

I decided to top the cupcakes with 3 pieces of m & m’s each  to symbolise “3”. Photos below courtesy of my colleague. She definitely has some photography skills. Thanks dear!

Cupcakes to celebrate love Part 1

I have been receiving orders from lovely ladies to celebrate their love for their husbands. The vanilla cupcakes with 2 toned vanilla butter cream below was ordered by my sister’s friend who used to be my Computing lecturer for her wedding anniversary as a surprise for her husband.

Cupcake orders Feb – Mar 2013


Last Thursday I bumped into my colleague at the Taylor’s University Book Fair. I was browsing through the cupcake books and she was surprised to see how interested I was with the book. Then I told her that I love to bake and I asked her to check out my blog. She viewed my posts and decided to order a dozen of Red Velvet with cream cheese frosting.

The verdict?? She told me that whose who tasted my cupcakes couldn’t believe that I was the one who baked it. Means that it tasted like cupcakes that come from the bakery. That really made my day! How wonderful it is to hear people give me such good reviews. Alhamdulillah.

I also want to share my very first cupcake order by a friend. Mocha cupcakes with cooked fluffy frosting topped with sprinkles.

Well, bila tengok orang lain happy makan cupcakes yang I buat, I pun rasa sangat happy. 🙂

Focus on what we want

According to Andrew Matthews, author of the book Being Happy, what you focus on expands. So, here’s a meaningful quote that I would like to share. I made the poster above all own my own. Feel free to share with others but do link me instead of just copy and paste. 😉

Pengajarannya, kalau kita nakkan sesuatu, kita fokus pada apa yang kita nak. Lebih kuat kita fokus, semakin kuat kita menarik apa yang kita inginkan.

Daripada fikir yang kita takkan dapat sesuatu, baik kita fikir yang dengan pertolongan Yang Maha Kuasa, kita pasti boleh dapat apa yang kita inginkan.

So, guess what?? After focusing on getting orders for my cupcakes, I managed to secure an order..1 dozen!!. Alhamdulillah… 🙂 My very first order and I will wow my customer. It’s gonna be a fun baking weekend for me.

So, just keep focusing on what we want!!!! IT WORKS EVERYTIME.

Red velvet minis

Since ada extra cream cheese frostings from the first round of red velvet cupcakes, last Thursday I buat lagi cupcakes and this time, I made cupcake minis.

I bawak ke ofis and share dengan my colleagues. Yang pasti, I akan bawa lebih banyak cupcakes to office in the future sebab my colleagues really enjoyed them.
