Doily Lace Invitation

Unwrapping the invitation
From outside, the invitation looks pretty with lace details. It was cute when I unwrapped and to know its a doily paper. This definitely inspires me to give it a try to make invitation for my cousin's bridal shower.

Classic, Elegant, Beautiful Calligraphy Wedding Invitation

The picture does not do this invitation justice- it doesn't show the texture of the cotton paper, the embossed pattern on the envelope and the slight debossed floral pattern on the inside of the envelope.
Its such a simple and elegant invitation. It just screamed 'Posh event!'.


Chloe's Birthday Cake

Making Chloe's, my very good friend's child's birthday cake was fun for me, even if it was time consuming, I love how everything turn out to be. I tried to draft out how I wanted the cake to be but I just went with the flow and decorate with whatever I had in my cabinets.

Used alphabet cookie cutter for Chloe's name on fondant, painted them with petal dust and glitter. Added fondant daisies (bought China made daisy cutter; fondant cutters and decoration tools can be really steep investments) and glued crystals (again its China made crystals - less than $5 for 144pcs) leftover from Baby J's manyue cake. I really like the effect of little daisies on the alphabet.
The daisies on the cake were first glued using edible glue but after being exasperatingly gluing them, I resorted to use UHU. The hot pink large ribbon was used to cover imperfections of the fondant base and I added more crystals and glued them using double tape.

Oh, I forgot to mention- the fondant cake base is styrofoam so no kids or anyone is eating the cake.
Happy Birthday candles were bought from Daisho.
The fondant butterflies are time consuming- dry the cut out butterflies, paint the colors and coat/line the edges with gold dust, then finalize it by putting each butterfly above hot water steam so the colors set and doesn't stain the cupcakes.

Purchased white cupcake boxes from Loyang or you can try Arkenzy Box.


Baking is a joy, decorating is something that requires practice and making nice cupcakes for family and friends is something I just picked up. There's so many wonderful blogs with beautiful pictures and great recipes and I am still testing out both recipes and decoration too.

Baby I

Seeing my children makes me feel so blessed and I enjoy every bits of them. Baby I was born in July and only a day difference with his sister's birthday. His delivery was not easy but holding him in my arms right after delivering him is truly priceless.

Now that I am lucky to be able to hire a nanny for baby I, readjusted my schedule to work and gasp! a new computer, I can blog again.
