The lady likes pink

That was what I was told... that's all! So Aunty here decided to try something new and came up with these Strawberry cupcakes with strawberry flavoured buttercream. It's in my menu now, upon availability of the berries, of course.

Marmalade cake. I heard this cake had to sit in the fridge for 2 days as the birthday boy/man went AWOL.

For babes

I love colours and that's why I love making birthday cakes for babies and young kids. So far my designs have achieved my sole and rather wicked intentions... I want these kiddies to be terribly attracted with the myriad of colours and lunge for the cake! There is no written rule to how cake should be eaten, right??

There were 2 additional boxes of cupcakes on top of this main birthday cake. The combination of flavours were Vanilla butter, Chocoalte, Butter scotch and Mocha.

Babes of another kind. I was given the brief that the birthday person is a rather "cheeky fella". I just took it from there. I hope he enjoyed licking off all the cream cheese frosting from these Carrot cake cupcakes!

When it rains, it pours!

I'm talking about the recent spate of tropical thunderstorms in the afternoons. The recent big one took out my fuse box and my electric automated gates. I wasn't home when it happened, so imagine my frustration at having to manually open 2 heavy wooden gates in the pouring rain! Fans of a wet t-shirt contest would have had a ball!

I apologize to those whose orders I had to call back and turn down... I felt especially bad for one 7 year old kid. When I got my power supply back, the first thing I checked was my oven, then my fridge, then my computer! Only then did other parts of the house mattered.

The good thing about the rain is, it makes the nights bearable to sleep even without the fan rotating. With nothing to do in the dark, the mind wanders.... thinking about all the costly expenses for the month... car repairs and service nearly 1K... fuse box and gate, bill not in yet.... to see the Orthopedic surgeon next week, more $$ *sigh*

Those who have seen me would notice I've been wearing a knee brace... I have a feeling the doc won't have good news for me. They say trouble comes in threes... was that 3 already?

Anyways, this is what I achieved this week....
