Amidst my very busy schedule last week, I had 2 surprises....in the middle of the week, whilst blog-hopping and amending documents (multitasking ma!), Kak Teh of Kak Teh Choc A Blog insisted that I drop a line to her...why ah?
She wanted to order some profiteroles for a birthday bash that included her's, even though she would be celebrating miles away... being a very very amateur, I tried to shy away by saying this and that, but yes, 100 profiteroles...I delivered on Saturday!! Coincidentally, Kak Teh's niece Anedra is also neighbours of the zoo like moi......and lagi coincidentally, Anedra's son and my sons go to the same school and take the same bus home...mak datuk.....when I spoke to Anedra, where the party was to be held....I nak topple from my chair, coz we bumped into each other the weekend before at our sons' sport's day...keciknya dunia, Kak Teh jauh beribu batu, made the order, and me and Anedra live sepelaung away........and all met through this blog world!!!
I told Anedra to wear shades when eating the sweeties, I have yet to perfect the shape and size, but I think one can indulge in the taste...and I also tried a chocolate ganache to dip the profiteroles into. The result was like in the picture here......tak pa Kak Teh when you are back in KL next, I'll make some for you...thanks Kak Teh for the orders!
I also had another "kerusi nak terbalik" session in the office when I received a call from a fellow blogger adik, who had moved miles away from Norway to Sg Petani...Lyana....ya Allah, she is so hilarious, I think ornag utara memang like that gelak and giggle 70%, cakap 30%...we call it kelolo......think spoke to her for a good close to 1 hr 45 mins kot...I must visit her when I next go back to Baling or Aloq Starq....what would my world be without all these people to add sugar and spice in my boring office hours......thanks Lyn for the orders!
I also attached a picture of the cuppies I made for Lyn, for her cousin's wedding...pembawakan or not pembawakan, I think I have found my calling...am going to bake...no, it's not going to be Kitchen Guardian Cafe' as yet, but I will be taking orders seriously...I have an inquiry for 500 cuppies for a wedding in November with fondant icing....am doing the costing now and am learning how to make sugar flowers/fondant icing next weekend!! By the way, I also made 300 cuppies for Irma Fatima's do on Friday, had to take half of Thursday off, I nak tolak the order, but they insisted....rezeki!
So far, I have been getting orders for cuppies and profiteroles almost every weekend, am attempting chocolate, banana, peanut butter, carrot cake varieties and perfect my victoria sandwich cake and mini cheesecakes for future orders...pray for my success...and vetting and amending documents will only be a part-time thingy when I join my hubby in his practice...inshaallah!!
