Customer wanted a damask print on d cake. apparently they have cake stencils for this hence the perfect damask prints on cakes u see online. either dat or they use the edible printouts. so what do u do when you don't have either. and there's nowhere you can purchase the stencils anywhere in brunei..yes unfortunately we don't have the privileges of cake decorating equipment suppliers here. so again i needed to brainstorm some more. so i thought..im gona have to make my own stencil! sigh~ now how i wish i have a stencil machine dat cuts out perfect stencils. but i don't! hahaha. so i have to draw out the design to the right size to go the sides of the cake..which took me to three different drawings before finally getting it to the right size! lol. when i finally got it..i then had to cut out now this is the hard part all the curves and sharp edges. having to press in the cutter really hard to make sure it cuts through..at one point i wanted to cry! haha..but i managed and the last cut i let out a sigh of relief! but works not done yet i then have to cut, layer, fill, cover cakes and then do the print on d sides, and make flowers and standing large lettering of the bride & grooms initials. oh work, work, work~ how i loathee....i mean love thee! hehe. at the end of all dat hard work..it looks pretty! im satisfied, customer was satisfied so hey. im a happy bunny~ :D
Important Customer Notice
To Make an Order please email your full details according to "how to make an order" sample below, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please email us in advance for decorated orders as it takes awhile to get to each email from various customers, and answer questions,discuss designs etc. plus i need advance notice to work out your order into my schedule and work around other orders as well. bear in mind i work alone so orders per day are limited.
we will try to respond to your email asap but do expect atleast 3-4days at times depending on how much emails we get at times. your emails will be responded back by my assistant momo. but i try to find time after im done doing orders to check on emails too.
As im usualy working doing decorations, baking etc, i sometimes miss calls, and i get so many txts coming in its hard to keep track of them which is why i recommend emailing me as its easier to organize and search and i have a record of your email orders.
or better yet if you find both emailing or Through phone hard, you can drop by my house to place an order (quite a number of customers have done this and its my most preferred method easier to discuss n confirm everything in one time) just set up an appointment with me.
as for basic cupcakes/cakes or other desserts i sell that requires no fancy decorating. (wordings are excluded as fancy) atleast a minimum of few hours or a day in advance notice is required, in this case msging or calling will be entertained.
Thanks for your support and understanding. i really whole heartedly appreciate it.

a little teaser for ur tastebuds...ever wondered what's inside of the cakes i've done. or how it looks like inside once u've cut the cake? well let me show you a photo that can satisfy ur curiosity.. this is cits special chocolate flavored cake.
And this time its suppose to look denim. had to really brainstorm on this one. how was i to give a denim effect on a cake/fondant. wasn't really sure if i could do it..but then again i just couldn;t dissapoint the customer who btw ordered it for his beloved wife's birthday (sweet!) so i had to come up with a way. which i did! tiring job indeed times like this i wish i have an airbrush machine or something. all this handpainting stuff is just so tiring. but then again it leaves sort of a proud satisfying moment wer i can say "i did it with my own hands and effort" without help of machines and what nots, if ya noe wat i mean. hahahah. but yea. it was well worth the effort as they loved it! i hope u readers do to. :D
I know i've been slacking off with uploading photos. its so hard to juggle everything lately. i so need to get myself more organized! unfortunately doing it isn't as easy as saying it. i will try my best. once again i'd like to remind if you want to order 3D novelty cakes or specially designed cakes please tell me well in advance as the whole process of me or my assistant to go thru each emails to getting ur order in, discussing about design , flavors and pricing and so on takes awhile..so by ordering/booking early we can sort out everything in time before the day of your order comes. and i can sort out my schedule to work around everyone's orders. as i do still work alone as in i do all decorations especially 3D ones n sculpted cakes etc. which also explains why i have to reject some orders to limit it..as much as id love to take every orders i get i can't get too well ahead of myself..i do only have two hands. hahaha. yes i need to constantly remind myself that so i don't take too much for me to handle which i tend to do sometimes ending up in me rushing for time. i swear i sometimes wish there were more than 24 hrs in a day! anyhoos im gona start uploading photos. bear in mind most of these photos go way back..thats how long i haven't been updating!so yea enjoy. once again thanks to my lovely customers/readers/supporters etc. going to have a revamp of the blog soon. will update u guys on dat. lots of changes to do. ciao bella~
