Happy B’day Fiona!
Happy Birthday Kevin! He turned to 1 year old.
There were 2 cakes: the square downtown and the sculpted fire truck.
The flavors included green tea and vanilla cakes with chocolate ganache and vanilla buttercream.
Kiky, a sweet lady, who was referred by my friend will have a baby girl some time in October. She loves Hello Kitty and is a good artist. She came with a cute design for her baby shower cake and after several consultations with us, this was the final design. We just tweaked the color palette and added a batik carpet when we applied the design to the cake. Congratulation Kiky!
Feel the wind. Smell the fresh air. Have an adventurous road trip!
It is kind of difficult for a man to say no for a road trip with a handsome red maroon and silver metallic Harley Davidson.
For most of us, it is a dream and yet for Ralph who has retired now, dream becomes a reality.
Flavors included chocolate cakes with blueberry buttercream.
We only celebrate a big birthday party for our kids when they turn to five. Milcah, our baby girl, would have a pretty in pink and chocolate for her party’s theme.
Planning and designing are part of me. I love to design cake, party, house, and website and make them look fabulous. People look with their eyes so the first impression is very important. We, ehm I mean me, had planned this party for a year. Most people probably think that this is too much and yet, I took pleasure in doing every single of it.
Initially, we wanted to have a pony party but pretty and animal feces did not go well together. At least, it was not something that I had in mind. For a plan B, Milcah wished princesses to come to her party and she chose Jasmine and Aurora. Princess merged with pink and chococolate inspired me to create Milcah’s sculpted dress cake on a pedestal. It was a little different than the traditional barbie doll princess cake.
It started with pink impatients flowers in terracota planters and pink lollipop flowers as the centerpieces. Every kid had their own brown with pink polkadot placemat, a white embroidery paper underneath a pink flower cupcake on the holder, and a pink goodie box.
We catered the Indonesian food from our friend, Hesti, that created a beautiful three tiers yellow rice decorated with parsley and cherry tomatoes. For the dessert table, we brought pink and chocolate wafers. Cecilia sisters baked chocolate oreo truffle balls and pink macaroons with nutella. They were so pinkalicious!
Jasmine and Aurora came to entertain little girls with storytelling and dancing. Milcah was not being herself when meeting the princesses because she was too excited in the beginning and nervous at the end. The little girls waved to the princesses with sadly faces when they left and said goodbye.
Lastly but not least, I baked the cake and Restu took the candid pictures. We were thankful for friends that had helped us with this magical party. Now, I can just relax and stay in focus for Milcah’s 16th birthday party. My friend teased me that I need to grow peony plants now if I want to have a party looks like the one designed by Preston Bailey.
Alice is expecting a baby boy that will be due in June 2010. The theme of this baby shower cake was a new mom tried to comfort her newborn and the color scheme was baby blue and brown. The flavors included chocolate and green tea cakes with vanilla cream cheese. Congratulation to Alice and Erwin!
