Turquoise Wedding (Part 2)

OMG ! I've been wanting to do these stacked cookies for a really long time. Well, at this post was the first time I did stacked cookies. But those cookies I made were for a gift. And these turquoise cookies were for a hantaran, a wedding. For many people to see.

I've seen so many beautiful stacked cookies for wedding made by others before. Through flickr only. Jealous cause I didn't get a chance to try it. But now I do. So I can cross it off in my must-try list. So happy.


Hope more orders like this in the future. Hope that stacked cookies can be an in-thing for a wedding.


Turquoise Wedding (Part 1)

It's wedding season !!!
And turquoise is so the in-thing.
Love it !


I so hate that my camera is broken. It has been more than 3 months and I haven't get a chance (or enough money) to buy a new one.
So my blog is like a rojak of pictures. I've been using from a 5-megapixel camera to an DSLR (borrowed). That's why all pictures look different. Some look professional-like. And some look, well, ugly.
Just hope I'll buy as soon as possible. Pray for me. ;)

Weird ??

I desperately wanted to do stacked cookies.
 But I don't want to do the normal wedding staked cookies.
Because I did these for a graduation gift. So I can't do the wedding stacked cookies.
 So I did these. Weird looking.
And I think I'm addicted to the color combination of pink and turquoise.

Don't ask me how to eat these kind of cookies.
Cause I'll answer "Just eat it !! "

To Mothers Around The World

A special dedication to my Mama
- Thank you for making me fat by cooking all the wonderful and delicious food. You know I just couldn't 
   resist your cooking. ;)
- Thank you for locking me up in the house so I won't be a wild child.
- Thank you for being the middle person whenever I am scared of asking Abah for things.
- Thank you for bringing me shopping with your credit cards.
- Thank you for sending me and picking me up from college even though I'll turn 22 this year.
- Thank you for being patience whenever I yelled at you before. Mistakes happen. ;P
- Thank you for taking care of me at home / hospital when I'm sick. Sorry I have a very weak antibody.

And a very big thank you for supporting me and my passion in cake decorating. For helping me baking and packing all those cookies. Stay up in the middle of the night with me waiting for me to finish my decorating. Thank you for letting me use your mixer and oven. Thanks for signing me up into cake decoration classes in the first place. Thank you for everything.


My Mama is not a superwoman.
 She's more than that.


Also wishing a very happy mother's day to my beloved aunties. You're like a mother to me too. Thank you for you care and support.

Mothers are just too wonderful. Make sure you appreciate them and love them with all your heart. Make them your first. Be good to them and take care of them. Spoil them once in a while (or always) with expensive things. They's just too worth it.

.You taught me everything.
And everything you’ve given me I always keep it inside.
You’re the driving force in my life.
There isn’t anything or anyone that I can be
And it just wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t have you by my side
You were there for me to love and care for me when skies were grey
Whenever I was down you were always there to comfort me
And no one else can be what you have been to me
You’ll always be you always will be the girl
In my life for all times

Mama, mama you know I love you
Oh you know I love you
Mama, mama you’re the queen of my heart
Your love is like tears from the stars
Mama, I just want you to know
Lovin’ you is like food to my soul

You’re always down for me
Have always been around for me even when I was bad
You showed me right from my wrong
Yes you did
And you took up for me when everyone was downin’ me
You always did understand
You gave me strength to go on
There was so many times looking back when I was so afraid
And then you come to me and say to me I can face anything
And no one else can do what you have done for me
You’ll always be
You will always be the girl in my life

Save The Environment


That day my Mama bought cute silicone cupcake mould.
And I am loving it !

I'm quite concern about the environment. So I really want to help to save the environment. Well, I am trying. With actions not words ok. Not that perfect but still I'm trying my best to do so.

Often I bake a cake or cupcakes and have extra batter. Back then I would just put into the normal paper cups. And my family would eat the cupcakes and throw the paper cups away. Of course they had to throw since it's not reusable. So I really don't like that.

Lets say if the extra batter can be put into 5 cups. Then if I bake 10 times in a week with extra batter, it means 50 paper cups I'm wasting ! OMG pengsan. So not saving the enviroment.

The silicone moulds !!
Pretty and colorful.

So these silicone cupcake moulds really help. They are reusable. They can be easily cleaned. And the cake can easily come out from the mould ! How wonderful is that.

I have a few silicone cake pans. And also a silicone flower-shape mould. Really cute. Great for brownies. Actually it's great for any type of cakes and even cookies.

Feels like I'm helping to promote companies that sell silicone moulds. But I'm only doing this for the sake of the environment. 
You may think it's just a small matter. But it can be huge if everyone puts effort to it.
If you can't escape from it, then it's ok. Like me selling cookies in an individual plastic bag, paper cake box, etc. But I try to do the most I can. You should too.

I really recommend for anyone that loves to bake for fun. That often bake for their family during weekends. It is expensive to buy and I'm not denying it. But only at first. Think positive and think about long-term. You'll save the environmet by using less paper (cups and parchment papers). And in future, you can see that you save money by using these.

And ouh, macaron is soooo the in-thing. And I know many are into selling macarons and even baking it for fun. Try to use the silicone baking mat instead of parchment papers. It will help a lot.

Thanks for reading this. I'm not nagging ok. Just want to share about the awareness of saving the environment.
