Little Miss Birthday Cake

I realized that i've been busy that i haven't posted in a while, and i don't know maybe the stress from living in the big city had caught up to me recently that my brain freezes a lot these days. Just yesterday, i was holding a plastic bowl in one hand and a trash in another, and when i was in front of a garbage can, i almost threw out the bowl in it...^^ Luckily, the brain works at that last minute so i didn't do what one my hand was about to do. *sigh*

All the hardwork of baking & decorating will always be paid off when the people that you baked for smiles happily and that is the case with this cake. A friend asked me to bake a cake for her daughter's 8th birthday and she liked the idea of a rainbow cake i did before. She asked me if i had any proposed design for the cake and i asked her if her daughter likes any certain characters or stuffs, and it turned out that her daughter likes Little Miss characters so...Little Miss characters it is.

Did you know that Mr. Men came from children's books in the 1971? The author, Robert Hargreaves, created the female version, Little Miss in 1981 as accompanying characters. I think it has more than 40 characters! Wow..and i only know them from my t-shirt ^^ I decided for this cake, i choose Little Miss characters that are happy & cheerful, we don't want Little Miss Bossy or Little Miss Naughty to be on the cake, do we?

So here's the cake, hope you enjoy it..and Happy 8th Birthday Moira, thanks for liking the cake.

Wednesday, July 7, 2010 Wishes Cupcakes

It's funny how language meaning can be interpreted by many words, and one word can mean different things. I've seen and experienced misunderstanding just because somebody say or interpreted words that sometimes they don't even mean it. Not to mention, translating words into different language that might not have the exact translation.

Like the word "Farewell" for example. It comes with the thought of someone's departure. The feeling of sadness, emptiness, and gloominess. Best Wishes, or Best of Luck, however, are often used to describe the positive side of farewell. We would really wish the best for them by leaving us.I'm sure that is what on Sylvia's mind when she ordered this cupcakes set for 3 of her work team.
She specifically requested little things on the cupcakes such as : coffee (because ivonne likes to drink coffee), dollars, stock reports and bank vault because they work in bank *doohhh...* and what's a bank without calculator to count all those dollars and pens to write all those checks? he..he..So here they are, i hope you all enjoy them.
