Green and Red Wedding

A green and red wedding theme at Indulgence, Ipoh.

The cake...a ruffled design by Cotton & Crumbs in the Wedding Cakes A Design Source (Issue 44),
in supposedly ombre green, with some red, in the form of butterflies.

Each guest gets either a red or green apple,
and a clothes peg, hand-made personally by the bride.

A closer look at them. 
One in Western bride and groom costume,
the other in the traditional Chinese wedding costume.
Creative!

Simple dining room set-up.

A Ferrero Roche tower made by the bride and friends.

A sweets and fruits display table at the reception, also by bride and friends.
Red and green eggs, unique!

A closer look at the cake...ordered by bride's aunt and mom.

The insides of the cake,
some green (pandan flavour) in it too.

My first wedding cake for 2013.

An All White Wedding Cupcake Tower

The wedding cupcake tower for
Shiau Ferng and Jone Thau 
at Royal Perak Golf Club, 17th Nov 2012 .



My first video (created on YouTube) of a wedding set-up, 
full photography credits to my friend Celia Chai.

As I see it, photography is somehow like making cakes too.
First, you must have the equipments and tools,
then you need the skills (know-how),
lastly, you need "the eye".

Watch the video and see the set-up of the wedding through Celia's eyes.
My cake pictures are so much better than any I have taken before.
Thank you, Celia!

What I did in 2012

Happy New Year 2103!
I'm late in wishing, as they say, better late than never!
My wish for my blog this year is the same as last year...to ensure regular and quality postings every month, so simple and yet so difficult...the simplest things are the most difficult, unappreciated too, because they can't easily be seen...but can only be felt. Here's to more "HEART" in 2013.



2102 has been good to me.
I get to design and implement my cupcake syllabus.
Thanks to Wah Seng, the local retailer and authorized centre for Wilton, the venue where I conduct my classes.

Sharing some photos of students in Cupcake Class Level 1.1.
This syllabus is designed for beginners, from the baking of cupcakes to decorating using buttercream.
Simple piping techniques like swirls, rosettes and identifying tips and their functions.

This is for Level 2 which uses fondant as the decorating medium. 
Level 2.1 shows the using of cutters to create 2D designs
Level 2.2 extends to 3D items which explains the usage of gum tragacanth or CMC (a man-made substitute).

I will be working to further expand my cupcake syllabus this year, that is why they are simply called by their levels, which a theme, or any cupcake theme depending on season can be adapted according  to the syllabus in the levels.

Wishing one and all a progressive and productive 2013!
