Why pen? Because he works at pen-producing company. Ok, no problem. Now, i don't know if you are familiar with a type of martial art originated from China, Yong Chun or more familiar with name Wing Chun. The name was said to be originated from a girl, Yim Wing Chung, who was taught this martial art to defend herself from a force-marriage by a local warlord. (Don't you just love Wikipedia? ^^)
Anyway, long story short, my friend wanted a Wing Chun mu ren zhuang, or usually called Wooden Dummy. If you have watched IP Man movie, you'll understand more but for me, somebody need to say Kung Fu Panda first, then i can say "AAahhhh....ok, i got it" Ha..Ha..I'm sure if you're a fan of Jacky Chan, you'll see this on some of his movie, so here is my creation for her request:
Happy Birthday Dy, hope you like the cake, and for everyone, thanks for believe in me and it's so good to see you all again.

Enough of my rambling, so let's get down to, what else, cakes..Yum..So, A friend of my sister liked the cupcakes that i did for my sister's wedding. So when she decided to resign from her job, my sister asked me to bake her cupcakes.
Her favorite color is black, so black it is (combined with pink off course, afterall, who would want to eat black covered cupcakes?)
From what i hear, she really loved the cupcakes and would love to order more. Thank youuu and I'll sure be waiting for your order...^^

So i was looking for another breakfast idea, other than bread, oatmeal, noodles which we so often have and stumbles upon a recipe book from Sedap. Getting bored with pretty little cupcakes that often taste sweets, i chose to try a tuna muffin recipe out of that book. I'm sharing the recipe here:
Prep. time : 45 mins
Yields : 10 muffins
225 gr all medium-protein flour
1 tbs baking powder
25 gr unsalted butter, room temperature
1 tbs sugar
1/4 tsp salt
150 ml milk
1 tbs onion, finely chopped and quick stir-fry on the pan with 1 tsp of butter
75 gr tuna in water
2 tbs cheddar cheese
Sift flour and baking powder, add butter and sugar. Mix well until they forms crumbles. Set Aside.
Lightly beaten egg, salt and milk
Pour the egg mixture one at a time to the flour mixture, mix well.
Add onion, tuna, and cheddar cheese to the mixture, and mix well.
Line muffins pan with muffin or cupcakes cups, and using a spatula or ice cream scoop, put the batter in the cups. Bake for 20 minutes on 190 degree Celsius or until they are done (mine were less than that).
They looked beautiful indeed, but it was a little bit of blunt to my taste (or perhaps that was because i used a left over cheese?), so for you who loves salty food, you might want to crank-up the salt or fresh cheddar cheese a bit.

Anyway, she wasn't what's on my mind when i decided to do this cupcake. It was my friend's birthday and let's just say, it's kinda a-light-bulb-on-top-of-your-head thing for me. He..he..(he's so gonna be pissed off reading thiss...), but hey..it's the thought that counts, right?
Hmm...he mention about a revenge and that i shall await for it..i wonder what...^^

Still using cupcake as the main attraction, accompanied by cream puffs Indonesian style and Surabaya layers cake (a.k.a Lapis Surabaya) and a glass of water made it a delicious snack after attending 2 hours of holy matrimony. And last but the least, a snack box especially for the bride & groom (too bad the picture was taken @night)

What better way of saying CONGRATULATIONS other than a cake? It's delicious and the message will get delivered (to your tummy too..^^). That was the idea behind these cupcakes. White dominated the color just so touches of pink, blue and yellow were combined to make it more attractive. It was a gift for a new born baby girl so the baby figurine was dressed in pink (Dohhh!). Congratulation again for your daughter, Egie.

There is usually food (lots of them) involved so for this occasion, i decided to present the groom and bride with a little pre-wedding or betrothal or espousal (or whatever you call them) gift : Bride and Groom Cupcakes.
Leo came up with the idea of the groom got down on one knee and hold the flower, and it turned out fine! So thank you babe.
The bride and groom centrepieces are surrounded with cupcakes with pink bows, just for those people who likes their cupcakes sweet but not too sweet ..and almond covered cupcakes just for those nut lovers.
Anyway, everything went smoothly, and people went home with grins on their faces, i'd like to think it's from the cupcakes but oh well..as long as all ends well.
