Funky Baby Girl Cake









Hi Cake Sweeties

Last week, my friend asked me to make her daughter a birthday cake. Based on an image provided to me by my friend (I wish I could credit the designer for this adorable cake design but there is no name or logo on the image). 

A funky, loveable little baby girl in her nappy and sunny has mini bling pacifiers around her - perfect cake for new babies, Christenings, baptisms and of course birthdays in this case. Milk bottles on wires spelt out the birthday girl's name, which all sit on a 4" styrofoam board so they can keep it as a keepsake. The cake covered in black and red polka dots randomly decorated with a beautiful number plaque. 

I later on decided to make an initial block and a teddy bear next to the baby girl. More to that, I threw in a pair of baby booties just for Baby Zoey. :-) The whole cake is just so girly and adorable. We were invited to the party and Jeremy kept wanting to have a bite. 

Guess what!!! She wore a beautiful red dress on the party with hair up just like the baby girl topper. How much cuteness you can imagine. :-)

Dear Zoey

May your special day and every other day bring you as much happiness as you are bringing to everyone around you. Happy 1st birthday...xo

Come back soon and we see you again!

Mini Vanilla Vegan Cupcakes



Hi Cake Sweeties

I have baked some mini “Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes” for a little boy’s birthday at his Childcare Centre.

Many childcare services now have avoidance of the food that has allergens such as dairy and nuts. Look here! These dairy, egg and nuts free cupcakes are seriously moist, perfectly balance on sweetness, loaded with sprinkles and frosted with mega fluffy delicious cold whip. 

They are just perfect to take to school or childcare as a birthday cake. Do you still think that cakes/cupcakes/desserts without butter, milk and eggs are not as good? Think again! This recipe is certainly a winner for kids with food allergies.

We have both a vanilla and chocolate version here for you to try.

Dear Lachlan

Five is a lucky number. Five is a great year to be. Five is filled with fun surprises! High Five and have a rocking party!

Hope to see you again soon.

Raspberry Cheesecake Tart




Hi Cake Sweeties

Do we all still send flowers to your beloved ones on a special occasion? What about a dessert instead :-) 

I made a Raspberry Cheesecake Tart with a simple shortbread cookie type crust and have a no bake filling for my dear friend Claire’s birthday.

This beautiful looking tart (she told me that) has a sandy shortbread crust, with a creamy mascarpone cheesecake filling; topped off with fresh and juicy raspberries. I remembered when she looked after me while I was having very bad morning sickness with Jeremy; Auntie Fang and Claire always drink teas during the day. Hence, this tart is the perfect to eat and relax with our family or guests.

~~
Dearest Claire

Thank you for your friendship through out all of the years. Always remember how much you are loved and appreciated by all of us. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday.

Father's Day Cupcakes



Hi Cake Sweeties

Let’s get Dads some SWEET TREATMENT for the Father’s Day this year. 

For the overall look, we wanted to create something Shabby Chic for Daddy just like Mums and still shouting out “man cake” immediately.We had two designs i.e. "Gentleman" & "Super Moustache".

We chose “Banana Chocolate Cupcake with a dollop of Chocolate Buttercream”. They are not only delicious but also healthy.

I think any Dad will impress and feel the love. Cupcake Toppers can be purchased separately. The cupcakes are sold in a set of 6 boxed with a ribbon. Feel free to email us or send us a message via FB to obtain a quote.

Thank you for stopping by.
Happy baking,

Father's Day Treats





Hi, Cake Sweeties

In Australia, we have Father's Day on the first Sunday of September. It's now the time to plan out how to spoil all Father figures. This year, the theme is "Gentleman" or "Dapper". 

Pre-order Cupcake Toppers:

These beautiful customised cupcake toppers are going to be a nice surprise for all Dads to celebrate this Father's Day.

Each one measures approximately 1 3/4 inches. You will receive 6 in total.

Please note these are handmade and so may slightly vary although the same materials and processes are used.

You can purchase together with our delicious cupcakes. We have settled on providing "Chocolate Banana Cupcakes" for Dads. Photo will be posted next Monday.

Pre-order Macarons:

I asked Jeremy what he wants to make for Daddy on Father's Day. He replied me loud and clear  "Macarons". We chose "Chocolate" for Jeremy and "Pistachio" for Daddy. 

We added some fondant decorations to place on top reflecting the theme we had. Chocolate Macarons available in a moustache shape for this special occasion!

All these treats will be packed in a box of 6. Dads will certainly feel the love and the deliciousness from our homemade treats.

Thank you for stopping by. See you next time.
Happy baking

Giant Cupcake Smash Cake




Hi Cake Sweeties,

I made another giant cupcake cake for my dear friend Lillian’s daughter. The cake was an ombre vanilla butter cake with buttercream icing and fondant butterfly accents. Again, I used the Big Top giant cupcake silicone mould to make the wrapper used white chocolate dyed in pink.

The design of the cake was from a photo sent to me by Lillian. I did a search just to be sure the credit of this design should go to “gateau”.

Glad to see Baby Theadora dived into the cake and got all messy.

~~
Dear Theadora

The first year is just a stepping-stone to many memories yet to make. Congratulations on the first milestone birthday!

bakingmummy's birthday cake













Hi, Cake Sweeties

I had my birthday last week and I couldn't help but to make a cake for myself. The design was from a talent cake artist "Joonie Tan". 

This was a dummy cake that allowed me to test some fondants from the supermarkets. You could see some cracks and rough finishes from the other fondants I used. At the end, I still prefer "Bakels" as it's easier to work with here in Australia and tastes better. 

~~
Thank you, God, for giving me another year of life.

To my dearest Mum and Dad: I grew up cocooned in your love, comforted by your hugs and motivated by your lives… and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thanks for everything.

To my dearest sisters: Spending my childhood with you girls has taught me the most important life lesson – that an older and younger sister together with me, can face just about whatever. Thanks for everything, sisters!! 


To my dearest the other half: Thanks for blending the right amount of FRIENDSHIP with the right amount of COMPANIONSHIP to create a beautiful potion called our MARRIAGE.

To my beautiful children: I know that I have given you guys a thousand reasons to be frustrated while growing up. Now I feel guilty because you two have given me a million reasons to be happy. Love you my lil Valentine and lil baby girl.

Thank you for all my dearest friends who remembered me today by sending cards, and letters, gifts and good wishes.

Love you all and I am blessed to call you my family and friends. 
~~

Thank you all for your continuing support of my little hobbit of baking, caking, crafting, planning and so on...I cannot do it without you. 

I hope to see you again soon.

Happy being
