Evolved and loving it!

Standard

Hello friends!

It has been a good 2 months start of this love of mine. Alhamdullilah. With all the continuous support from all of you, I have gained many new friends as well and managed to continue doing what I enjoyed most!

It is purely a coincidence that my husband and I decided to do this, honestly baking is exactly not my forte. I wouldn’t even have imagined that I can actually bake. Trust me, because from the time that I got married, I do not even know how to cook a dish, what more baking. I was never a homebody when I was younger so never really got to learn. I guess because I took the advantage of knowing that my mother, in fact my other family members too are super cooks!

Oh well, I guess it’s in our ‘blood’ that after all the denial, what I love most now is baking.

So within these 2 months, it seems that our RVCs kinda evolved! Hahaha…. Just take a look at the rapid change!

And of course, from just a plain ol’ box of cupcakes, it is more meaningful if you say it with words.

As mentioned in my earlier entry, the Introductory Prices for our RVCs with Hershey’s Chocolate Ganache Fillings will only last for 2 months. I am actually reluctant to let it go and thought of extending the offer but alas, due to current situations, everything is going up and we definitely have to keep up with it.

Wait!

So since Mother’s Day is just a couple week more, I decided to extend the offer anyways! Yay! In fact, I have come up with a special package for our deserving mothers!

Also, all our RVCs now will still have Hershey’s Chocolate Ganache Fillings. Yes! ALL of them! (what was I thinking leaving it plain right?)

Order your Mother’s Day package now to avoid disappointment coz I really am taking limited slots!

Hope to hear from you soon!

No no I am not done yet!

We are now known as Comestivel RVC! Hehehe….plus if you have any enquiries, please email me at our new address : comestivel_rvc@yahoo.com

I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of my friends, yes, you are not just my customers, you are my new found friends! Without you guys, I wont be able to experience this satisfaction of baking.

For our pricelist after 13 May 2012, please refer here.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow…(cheesiest title post ever)

WARNING : Colourful Entry ahead!

The moment I saw the recipe, I was literally dumbfounded.  The cake is eye-catching, can’t help but to stare at it.  Although, I’ve been excited to try it , I’ve been procrastinating it actually.  Who wouldn’t?  Imagine, you have to prepare 6 or more baking tins, 6 or more plastic containers, 6 or more gel colorings, 6 or more spoons/spatulas or whatever that can scoop all the batters.  Not an easy feat for me at least. THAT doesn’t even include the ingredients to be used. OK the list can go on further but hey, at the end of the day, all these were overcome by the satisfaction of the CAKE!

Yeah….I am talking about (what else) …THE RAINBOW CAKE!

From the last few entry,  I did mentioned about this “Whisk Kid”, she made it so wonderfully colorful!  I am challenged by it.

And so it began….

Thank God it fit into my oven, all 6 of them! 🙂

The Buttercream Frosting looking gorgeous but I find it to be too sweet! Gosh! I should have just stick to my Cream Cheese Frosting instead.

Before frosting, do remember to chill the baked batter for at least 10 mins.

 I should really get a cake stand, for now Nigella’s book will do 🙂 ….hahahaha..did I mentioned that this is how an amateur baking enthusiast frost a cake! FAIL!

Looking at the result is worth me not eating the whole day! Yup, I kinda ‘forget’ to eat my lunch AND dinner!

The sliced cake!

Yet another thing that I most hate! The washing aftermath! Arrrghhhh!!! Not 1, not 2, not 3 BUT 6times more!

Is it worth all the effort?

Well…..what say you?

Sidenote : I followed the recipe exactly but find it to be too sweet to my liking.  So try to cut down the sugar by half (hmm dunno whether it would affect the texture, any experienced baker out there please enlighten me, thanks!),  I am sure it’ll taste even better.

Easiest recipe yet the challenge of preparing it is totally worth it too!

You can find the recipe here.

April will be our 2nd month since we decided to ‘do this’.

It’s been a great whole month, we’ve baked 700 cupcakes alone last March. These are paid cuppies, the numbers did not include those which I’ve given out for free mind you! Most probably it may have already reached the mark 750-780…maybe.

As I’ve mentioned in Twitter and Instagram, I have an announcement to make, in fact 2 of them.

Firstly, since I was trying to get my creative mojo back, I’ve decided to have a lil something special (read : FREE) for you to have when you order a dozen or more from us. As most of us ordered the RVCs for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries and some just to satisfy your cravings, I’ll be making customized cupcakes toppers like these.

You can choose any of these words/phrases posted here but let me tell you, its limited, just 2 pcs for each customer, so book your words/phrases now!
