Princess Doll Cakes




Happy 3rd & 4th Birthday,Chantelle & Veronique
in pastel pink & white theme

Vanilla cake with pink vanilla butter cream icing

I've had such a great time while working on these gorgeous barbie doll cakes.
It reminds me my childhood memories playing a barbie doll & having fun with it.
I'm so thankful for Cynthia who believe in me making cakes for her little girls 
despite of not having a chance to look at any sample photo.
Thanks a lot, Cynthia.

It was quite challenging for me to choose the dress design 
(based on client's request of course) because there are so many.
I actually spent over 2 hours looking at doll cakes on the internet.
 It's like the first love as it's my first doll cake!
You become sort of obsessed with it. :D


I'm very happy with the finish look.
Even my hubby seemed to be very impressed with the beauty of the barbie cakes.
He said, " Oh. it's quite cool.." 
It means 'very nice' :-)


                                        I hope Chantelle & Veronique have a big smile 
                              when they see the cakes and lots of fun on their birthday.
Happy Birthday,girls!

Lena's 1st Birthday Cake


Pink theme Baby girl's 1st birthday cake
with the hand made figurine in Korean traditional costume, Han-Bok(한복)

The design of the whole figurines is inspired by Lena wearing her Han-Bok.


I painted the patterns of her dress by hands and brushed pearl lust on her pink vest.
It was my first figurine in Han-Bok so I was quite excited working on it.
I've seen many baby figurines in Korean traditional costume and
was looking forward to making one someday..

I'm glad that I had a chance to create the figurine for Lena 
and hoping she could keep it to remember her very first birthday.

Happy 1st Birthday,Lena. 


Simple Flower & Mini Ribbon Cupcakes & Sweet life..


Simply cute cupcakes in Pink theme
decorated with sugar flower toppers & mini ribbons

Red velvet/ chocolate/ lemon poppy seeds cupcakes


I was having a big sugar rush since I baked three different flavours 
and I have a few leftover cupcakes for myself.

I keep asking to myself, 'Just one bite to try out..
 at least I should check how well they are baked..'
However, I always end up eating a whole cupcake..

It's okay because it's only one cupcake but when I bake three different cakes?
Yes, I eat three cupcakes instead of one, non-stop 
and make a cup of coffee to enjoy the huge tea time with my daughter.

My life is so sweet.. Literally it sure is.

Pororo Cake & Cupcakes



Pororo Cake for Nicholas's First Birthday

Red velvet cupcakes & marble cake

I finally had a chance to make the Pororo cake! 
I've been waiting for this moment since my daughter started liking Pororo.
Pororo is such a lovely character which is my daughter's favourite.
She is into Pororo & Dora so she's been so excited 
while I was working on Pororo cake & cupcakes.


I felt sorry for her because she couldn't get to touch or taste the cake..
She was  a few step away from it 
and kept saying "Mum, Pororo..Pororo.. Balloons!"


I hope Nicholas enjoys the Pororo figurine:D
The weather has been so bad lately. too much rain & dark clouds..
I miss a bright sunny day!!  Besides, Nicholas's birthday party is tomorrow
so hopefully the weather picks up for his special day!


Happy First Birthday, Nicholas!!
