Edible Flowers in Mason Jar


Hi Everyone

Mum celebrated her birthday last weekend. She lives in overseas with Dad and my sisters, I still wanted to create something for her special day. Instead of a real cake, I created a dummy.

She is in love with floral art early this year. She would send us photo of her work every week. It’s not hard to think of what to make her i.e. a half edible gorgeous bouquet of flowers in a real mason jar.

I covered a mason jar with fondant. Some sugared flowers complete the illusion, making them look like a miniature floral art, which can last for a long time. For the letter i.e. MUM, I just free handed and painted gold luster dust mixed with vodka.

Mum said it's a perfect present.

Dearest Mum:

I believe in angels,
I believe in unconditional love,
I believe in blessings,

I believe in good luck,

I believe in destiny...

I found all these in you, who is my everything. If I love my children to the moon and back; I love you to the whole universe and back.

I want to thank Grandma and Grapndpa for having you and educate you for being who you are. I hope you find no regrets of having us.

Happy birthday to the dearest woman of my life.

I love my mum. She is a very artistic woman who is my main inspiration and role model to look up to. I can’t wait to create another cake next year for her from her many talents and interests.

Happy baking

Cartier Box Cake





Hi Everyone

Yeah, Paul and I are leaving the "Seven-Year Itch" behind and moving to our "Infinity-Year" next week. 

I created another designer cake with the theme of our wedding rings to mark our eighth wedding anniversary this time. As he will be away on a corporate incentive trip, I have to make something very quick and small to have no trouble travelling in distance. The cake was a store bought vanilla sponge, filled with strawberry jam and ganache. The Logo was stamped. 

I truly enjoy making it as it has a such sentimental meaning to us. I was thinking the time we spent on choosing our rings while making this replicas of our ring box cake. As I was very tiny back then, the fashion house jeweller needed to customise the size of my ring, which took more than a month of waiting in excitement and anxiety. Luckily, it just arrived a month before the wedding. 

In my vows, I didn't include infinity or forever. In the modern society, divorce is on a rise. I didn't want to say that to the love of my life in front of our beloved family, friends and God if I didn't know what it would hold for us back then. I heard about a lot of divorces in the first year of married life. We had our ups and downs and I can say now that we are still in love and very much so back then. The bonus would be our beautiful two kids. They mean more than everything in the world to me. I wanted to say how much I appreciate my husband for being there for me not once but twice.

Dear Paul

Hey, we are still married for 8 years i.e. 2,920 days and 70,080 hours. 2 kids with 100's of fights of course makeups. I am not a quitter so do you, not only have I seen truth in your eyes, you remind me of time itself for you are my past, present, future and FOREVER. I love you, Mr Huang...

Keep Love
Happy 8th Anniversary
