Sticky chocolate blueberry cheesecake

Last post for the year! May you all have a fruitful and indulging year ahead with good health, loads of wealth and great success.

Made a sticky chocolate blueberry cheesecake for CS's order. It was for his dad's birthday celebration. The last time I baked this cake was in February for CS' birthday, this is one of the cakes which I only bake like once or twice a year for special occasions, and so far, no order request. The cake has a thick layer of sticky chocolate base, soft centre with oozing chocolate and a layer of cheesecake with fresh blueberries.

I quite like this cake and it's especially good for chocolate lovers who love cheesecake but don't want to get a chocolate cheesecake. However, it is also quite tricky in handling, you do need spoons to eat this cake. And perhaps due to a slight shortage of baking time this round, the cake I heard was a bit too soft with too much chocolate flowing out. Cake has a big crack too when delivered. Have put a note for fixing that.

Made some fishes with jelly with this great mould from Tan See Fong (through Wilton retail). Looks so real right?

Chocolates that looks like little stones and some grass effects. Wanted to create the water effect with some blue piping jelly, but decided not to overdo the cake decoration.

Happy birthday again to uncle. Hope you've had a great birthday celebration.

The Opening of Pilatique Solaris

Melissa contacted me last week to order cupcake for the soft opening of her studio and I found out that she is my FB friend :). The colour theme and designs were specified by her and there was a request for some TTBs doing the "teaser" (boat post?). However, I could only do one TTB because I was lacking time due to Christmas orders.

Looks a bit messy on here as I tried to fit them all on one board and in a same box. I'm sure Melissa had done a better job rearranging them for the event. Hope you've had a great event dear and thanks for ordering from me.

In The Deep Blue Sea

A baby whale

Christmas is over... Looking forward to the New Year break :).

Now, back to some birthday deliveries since I wanted to put up the Christmasy ones last week, I've postponed putting up posts of a few other deliveries. I've got a call from my cousin sis in law's (is this description correct?) colleague inquiring about Christmas yule log, oh wait, I think it was a cake in Santa shape. But when I finally got a confirmation of the order, it was actually for a birthday and the theme was "ocean". Due to time constraint as I was rushing for the baby shower and other Christmas orders, we've picked about 6 items out of the full list for this box of cupcake. Among all, the baby whale was my favorite.

Octopus - which I think looked a bit "evil" or cunning, kind of haha... Bro in law said this looked like one of the octopus in some bank's advertisement. Yeah, because I actually had that in mind, just didn't put on the cap for Octopus


Stingray or also called the "devil fish"

Star fishes

Sea Shells

Baby shower cupcakes for Aunt Avtar

It's my own record breaking by making so many pairs of baby booties. Made 51 pairs to be exact, in about 3 and a half hours. They are just so cute but bro in law said he's going mad by just looking at so much pink. Hehe... guess maybe that's why he'd dressed baby Emily in blue just now. Okay, it's a change to see so much blue instead of pink on the baby.

Ohh... back to the post. Aunt Avtar order this a month ago for baby shower give aways. I heard one of her grandchild is back for her first time from overseas and most relatives will be seeing her for the first time.

The cupcakes were packed in boxes of 8 pieces each.

Pre-Christmas baking

Christmas is here!!

Started some Christmas baking with English scones and some biscotti. Actually the reason for the scones is that the mini jams are just too cute and very festive. :)

Biscotti is kind of a must and since the recipient of this present mentioned biscotti when I mentioned Christmas present, here's the biscotti. Something more Christmasy so instead of my usual almond chocolate biscotti, I made this with the green and red colour - almond, pistachio, cranberries and raisins. Taster said it's not as crunchy but nice. I supposed the fruits made certain part more moist, I was also being careful not to over bake it in case it got too hard.

Merry Christmas in advance. :)

For sis...

Okay sis, bet you haven't seen what you've ordered right? Here's the one for Badrul. Pictures not looking that great because it was midnight and I completed this only after dinner appointment. Thank goodness I had Alex and Siew Lee to help out. :)

Mum commented that this is like a Japanese village.

Chocolate cake tied up with ribbons

Aunty Elvy ordered this for one of the birthday celebrations in her office. Brainstorming with aunt didn't help with finalizing a design for the cake, and I don't feel like making another TTB so soon, so I suggested the gift wrap but just the ribbon minus the "wrapping paper".

The result was this and I heard that the birthday girl loved it so much that she tried to "save" the ribbon and was cutting around the ribbon to share the cake.

I'm one happy baker after receiving my aunt's sms about this. Above moist chocolate cake with milk chocolate icing, tired with pink ribbons with little red flower designs.

Little Emily's Full Moon Party

Emily, my little niece (first child of my only sister), celebrated her one month old last Monday and the party was last Saturday. Yeah, after the robbery case at home on Friday. Sigh... but little Emily has been a comfort to everyone, though traumatized but her presence gave everyone the warmth.

Sis has requested for the same design as Erwin's wedding cupcakes for Emily's full moon party, only hers will be colourful and well, pink.

The cupcakes were placed at the dining table together with the red eggs and pickled ginger sis prepared.

Also prepared a pack for the restaurant senior manager, who's one of our close friends who can't join the dinner.

Pictures of Emily's full moon party is in Facebook :)

ps. Nope, red egg is not in the TeaRoom order list :p
