Cupcakes in a jiffy

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

My brother called yesterday and announce that he’s taking us for lunch to celebrate my dad’s belated birthday. I had always wanted to make a nice birthday cake for my dad, but was waiting for him to come to KL from our hometown in Perak. My dad had just arrived in KL yesterday. Due to the short notice I only had time to bake some cupcakes and decorated with whatever fondant / gumpaste decorations I had in store. And thank God I’ve also made extra icing the day before, so that really saved me some time.

Here are the cupcakes, it says ‘Happy Birthday Wan’. ‘Wan’ means grandfather in Malay language. My daughter and nieces call my dad ‘Wan’.



Somehow, I think the decoration looked a bit too much, too crowded.. :-(

Anyway, since I made the basket weave pattern, for those of you who don’t know, here’s my note on how to create one. The tip I’m using is this :


The rope border was made using a star tube. I brush the inside of my piping bag with yellow colouring and then fill it with white icing. When I press out the icing, it will have a tinge of yellow.


Hope this information is useful.

Ok, take care. Tara luv !

Yozora, I’m giving a class to two of my friends on basic cake making. Maybe next we will do sugarpaste. But just basic course la. I’ll annouce here if confirmed.

Jun, Dayang & Boxhouse, thank you very much. Teknik lain mixing colour, rasanya cuma bubuh dua icing kaler je la dlm satu piping bag. Itu you all pun dah terror..

Terima kasih semua sudi mampir ke sini.. good nite.
