....I take one small step and one single action to make myself closer to my goal! I have listed down the things that I need to do, and I try my best to do at least one from my list! It is scary, but like Dato Shaz said...sometimes one has to have faith in something that one can't see!
I didn't oblige many orders last week, knowing that I have fulfill this orders from Maybank! 360 assorted flavors cupcakes for their high-tea for Maybank's Malaysian Golf Open 2012! Boy, was I flattered...of course I was! I made Vanilla and Red Velvet Cupcakes on Saturday and made Vanilla and Malt and Choc Malt Cupcakes for Sunday!
Chocolate Malt Cupcakes ....recipe from www.spicyicecream.com.au
195g butter, soft
150g caster sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla bean, I used 1 tsp vanilla essence
195g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
120g Horlicks or Milo for Choc Malt
60 ml boiling water

I topped them with Caramel Buttercream...yummss!
It didn't occur to me that the whole event was a world class event, hence, my cakes...LOL, until Kak Nana reminded me of this...so I kembang sekejap (was flattered!!)
...and yes, I hope to see them again in 2013, inshaallah...in the mean time I have to prepare my invoice, LOL! Yup, haven't done that yet!
I made this for Leanne, a Turquoise Rainbow cake, tis Leanne!
...and made some macarons, the fillings were Peanut Butter Cheese, Passion Fruit, Caramel Buttercream, Blackcurrant and Vanilla...tqs Muzal, Ju, Suhaila...
I also experimented with this Macaron Pyramid...awesome! Neat and easier to assemble compared with a Macaron Tower! But I love them all the same!
I made this Rainbow Cake in Purple for Zira and some Cupcakes for her niece's Hantaran...tqs Zira, for always being there for me with or without your Pulut Mangga or Kuehteow Teng or Laksa Perglih!
I didn't do any baking on Sunday after I delivered the Cupcakes to KLGCC, but made this for another special person who puts others before her...Happy Birthday Shila Superwomanwannabe....she is indeed a supermom ya!
