Cupcakes Anyone?

Recently, I've bought a box of muffins for Emily's birthday and boy, it looked so good and too adorable to be eaten. Then it strike me, maybe I should try baking some myself and decorate them. I started with cupcakes, because they are small and simply too cute to be eaten! At first, the decorations did not turn out too well, far from what you see below. But after a few rounds of baking and learning how to squeeze (the icing...what were you thinking about?!!), it gets better.

This is the box of muffins for Emily. Too pretty to be eaten isn't it?

A few days were spent on research - the buttercream icing, the marshmallow fondant and of course the delicious lemon poppy seed cupcakes! Then I went sourcing of ingredients and decorative materials at baking shops in Taman Megah and Shah Alam. Finally, the pictures below showed that I have made some improvement despite being an amateur at cake decorating! Nothing is impossible...when there's a will, there's a way....

A taste of Happy Land anyone?

EilinG said...

But if u r not free then it's okie ... no special occassion though ..

Oh ok. I think there shouldn't be a problem making 50 cupcakes for you but the only problem is the box. Currently I have a box that only fills 36 cupcakes. Are you okay if I split them into 2 boxes? You want it by next week? I think I can make it during the weekends.

Why don't you email me the details i.e when you want them, contact no.. at eilinglim@gmail.com

haha...about the pineapple tarts, I'll need to be totally free to make them. I'll let you know.
