Best Cheese Cake

About a week ago, a friend messaged me saying he was going to vote me for the best Cheeese cake in town (Kuala Lumpur). Every Sunday, in the food section of our local paper there is a section that asks people to send in the votes for something they think is the best and that week they were looking for the best Cheese cake.

So this was what then appeared in The Star on the 23rd November 2008. My name and blog apprear in the SMS Senders' Pick For Best Cheesecake

Monkeying on the Letter G

Ruben wanted a letter "G" for his girl friend's surprise b'day. I asked him what else does she like and the first thing he said was "monkeys". So made the two monkeys to add a personal touch to the cake.
It was easy shaping the G. But it took time cleaning the inside part to ensure the board was clean. In the end, edged the corners with chocolate icing to give it a finished look. The fondant flowers were store bought.

Birthday Splash

This swimming pool cake was fun to do. I joined to chocolate cakes and iced with butter cream. The little figurines were made from fondant including the tiles around the pool, the float, the ball, the flip flops and mats on the grass.

I was told the kids ended up fighting over the flip flops.

Manchaster United

Having done the Liverpool logo, someone asked for the MU logo on a cake. I must admit, the logo is much easier to the designs are simpler.

The run-out being dried.

Run-out transferred to the cake

The cake completed.

Now do you think someone from the MU foot ball club will call me for an order? Please pass the word to them...anyone...Thanks.

Raya Diwali Cake

This for the "open house" by from a corporate client. They wanted a 4kg cake. So instead of just making one type of cake, I combined 2 butter and 2 chocolate cakes in a checker board shape.
The "Ketupat" and "Indian Oil Lamps" were cut out from fondant and placed on the cake.

The 4 cakes after it was crumb coated.

Ben10 on chocolate cake

Ben10 seems to be popular these days. Am getting the hang of doing the run outs, but they still need to dry better before transfering or they fall into pieces.
This was placed on a chocolate cake topped with chocolate ganache. To Vinod and Premi, thanks for the order. Hope Harish like the little surprise


Shamini wanted either a football shaped cake or a Liverpool Jersey. So decided on the jersey with the Liverpool logo. Made the runout logo, on reverse to see how it would turn out. Guess each layer needs to dry a little before the backing is added to it.
This is a moist chocolate cake, layered with butterscotch. Yummmmmy.
And Andre is the boy who celebrated his 7th Birthday.

Butter Cake for the Golden Parishners

A butter cake with butter icing. Sometime working with butter icing in this hot humid climate is not easy. It takes ages for the crumb coated layer to dry before adding the finishing touches. Even then, it smudges ever so easily.
Hand piped the roses for this simple cake.
