Listen to a Review

Back in 2010, I requested Joe Augustin to give an honest review on our cakes. Listen to it here, a podcast he recorded with Shareen Wong.

What?? Another Birthday cake??

We didn’t really plan for a birthday dinner for our son, but on the day itself, we decided to ask him where he wanted to go. Surprisingly, he chose Grand Shanghai.. ‘cos he really enjoys the live music! And if you’ve been there, you know that, the kind of music they are playing is totally not a 4 year old would listen to…. Its Theresa Teng’s kind of music!!

I was not prepared for a second cake, so I had to whip out another cake with decoration in 2 hours.. I was in sprint mode.. weighing, mixing and oven were done in less than 25 minutes. While the cake was in the oven, I made the cake toppers from fondant. Guess what??!!  A Kapibara family… I made a mama, papa and baby Kapibara as toppers..

they turned out really cute!!..

J’s 4th Birthday with Kapibara-san Cake

It was our son’s 4th birthday last week and months before, he had asked for a 3D Kapibara cake. So, who is Kapibara? It’s one of our son’s favorite stuffed toys.

The cake was made with 1.5 x 8 inch carved Devil Chocolate cake, iced with vanilla butter cream. I also baked several cupcakes made from DCC batter, filled with dark chocolate ganache and topped with butter cream (yummm…).

Our son was totally thrilled with his birthday cake and his classmates t00! Some even asked for second helping .. that includes the teachers!!
