Thomas the Train - JJ's 1st Bday

This cake is made for JJ's 1st bday as a gift. I was invited for his birthday dinner. Since I don't really know what to give (his parents are wealthy :D) I decided to make a special cake instead.

It took me 3 days to make. 1st day: baking, 2nd day: carving, 3rd day: decorating. Well, I still have to do other chores. But it's worth it. I'm glad that the people like it, especially the kids :)

Here is the birthday boy with parents.

Black Forest

This cake is made especially for Adrian, my ex housemate. He comes from the same hometown in Indonesia. Everytime he goes back or comes back, I always ask a favour from him.
He likes Black Forest cake. So I decide to make it for him.

The recipe is taken from Women's Weekly Book. I am curious to try. It's quite nice. Light & not chocolaty.

The cake itself should be 3 layers instead of 4.

They are:

  3. Strawberry buttercake with meringue
  4. Lemon cheesecake with meringue

According to Chris & the guests that have them, they are very delicious. I'm so glad that they are all satisfied.

Lapis Surabaya

Lapis Surabaya is a famous Indonesian cake. It consists of 3 layers of cakes : Vanilla, chocolate & vanilla cake.
The texture of this cake is very soft, since it uses many eggs (1 layer of a 10" cake uses 10 eggs!!! So 3 layers use 30 eggs! Ewww....)

I happen to make this cake for a wedding cake.

Benny & Regina Wedding Cake

Benny's cousin, Irene, orders this wedding cake with special cake stand. I love the roses. They are all handmade & my husband helps me to make them!

Each cake uses 19 roses. We spend weeks to make them.

The top tier comes with simple heart with 2 butterflies.

I love the butterflies. They are gorgeous!!

The middle tier with "Regina" word.

The bottom tier cake with "Benny" word.

The cakes are Lapis Surabaya cakes. I make them 3 days before the due date. It takes me almost one full day to decorate the cakes. Especially the bottom cake, which has plenty patches (psst....secret :D )

It's all worth it, though, at the end of the day. I was a bit dissapointed when it's done. Due to the cake texture, the fondant doesn't cover very well actually. Yet the client & the guests are very satisfied with the look & especially the taste!

Praise the Lord.

Congrats for Benny & Regina for your wedding.

Spicy Cupcakes Hampers

I make these simple cupcakes for all the pastors in my church. It is quite time consuming, though. I have to wrap the hampers myself.
