A mixed week

A couple of girly themed orders which are always fun to do

Sugee (semolina) cake for my friend Baldish. We even gave 2 slices to the table next to us at dinner as one of them too was celebrating her birthday that night.
Butterscotch cupcakes for some folks who will be spending a couple of months here. Hope you brought sunblock and umbrellas!
Some chocolate Elmo and Cookie Monster cupcakes for Cecilia.
A Mooncake and Chinese lantern theme to celebrate the Mid Autumn Festival

A short story

One day, Mei ordered this Chocolate fruit cake for Jimmy's belated birthday. Girl, next time tell me it's for someone's birthday so I can add a message and provide candles!

Jimmy in turn ordered these Chocolate cupcakes for Jennifer, a Mommy-to-be, who had just arrived from the US.

Jennifer dropped me a lovely note today ...

Hi Ivy,

I am the mommy-to-be who got the pretty cupcakes for my birthday!! They were delicious!!!!
My husband & I are thinking about ordering cupcakes from you after our baby is born, for the one month's celebration..
We will contact you when the time is right.

You are a genius!!

Jennifer C


Aaah, stories like that always makes my week!

Working with edible images

I had the opportunity to work with edible images recently. While they give a flawless finish, they are tricky little fellas to work with. Here's my advise: don't attempt working on them on very hot or humid days unless you are lucky enough to have an air conditioned environment and always print a few extras to cater for tearing or damage.
