Lela's mum-in-law's Bday is on 19th Nov and it's one day after mine..*hint hint*
They ordered for a cake big enough for a few 'aunts' to 'help' during the 'cake cutting ceremony'..there wasn't any theme/colour preference except that it should be subtle enough for an elderly...nothing too fancy or funky...something to remind them of the time when we ordered our cakes from a heartland confectionery back in the early 80s....so I made this 12-inch square magnolia vanilla cake with buttercream icing..just added some white fondant flowers on the sides and my fave choc hearts on top..sweet memories..
hi people...phew..busy2 these days..meanwhile, I had an order for these minis for a 'majlis cukur rambut' for my sister's new nephew Adam Nadim. A mix of vanilla and choc fudge flavour, I initially intended to make some cookie monsters but I just don't know where my 'grass' icing tip went. Therefore I couldn't ice the fur..so I make do with little 'Bloo' from 'Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends' instead..
The naked cakes - before frosting...
