The other day I was approached by the principal of PPIS Child Development Ctr – Jurong, Ms Lina in regards to a Fundraising Event that they will be organising, I immediately agreed to the idea when she mentioned that part of the amount collected that day will be donated to the center. Yeah why not right? Plus it’ll also be like a Pre-Ramadhan Bazaar! 😊

Oooh its gonna be an owesome powsome family day, while the mummies enjoying their shopping spree, the kids get their faces painted and all! Of course after an exhausting day of fun, some cuppies would be a treat!

Mother’s Day is Everyday you know! ;D

Standard

Confession : I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO ARRANGE FLOWERS!! What the heck was I thinking when I did a promo on Mother’s Day Package last week which includes a dozen of RVCs and a hand bouquet?! Honestly at that point of time, I was not even thinking who I would want to ask to arrange the flowers for me. In my heart, I was actually pretty confident about doing it all by myself. Boy, was I right?!!! Hahahahaha…. Yeah, now I believe if there’s a will there’s a way! Yup! I am proud of myself! Thanks to Youtube -aTutorial. LOL! While doing it, the hubby was kinda skeptical about it and he was the one who switched on the tutorial for me. All those bouquets that you received was from a first timer. Of course, cant beat the real florist lah right. Anyways, good try Yati! *pats on my own back* 😛

Alhamdullilah, I started that week with preparing the toppers every night. I was nearly out of ideas on the designs but glad each one is of a different design.

Ok enough talk, let the pictures do the talking! Enjoy! I hope…..really do hope, your moms love them!

So this is how a first-timer flower arranger, arranged for her mom and mom-in-law!

20120519-070030.jpg

How? Actually not baaaad right?! Hahaha…. Ok next venture, become florist lor!

Last weekend was all hardwork! I was not only taking Mother’s Day Package orders but some other celebrations too. At one point of time, I was too exhausted that I nearly thought that I’m about to collapse! True! But after thinking about how I would make my friends feel when they received their orders for their moms, I couldnt help but to head on and get the job done well! Alhamdullilah, with alot of positive feedbacks, I am simply happy. Who would’d be right if you see smiles all over like these!

BIG HUGS AND THANK YOUS TO MY NEW FOUND FRIENDS, FAMELA & ATIKAH AMALINA!

You gals are AWESOME!

Not forgetting to all my friends who ordered of course! If you still have photos taken last Mother’s Day with our RVCs in hand, please send it to me coz I would love to feature it here.

It’s been a week now so I am still recuperating! Hahaha! Will get back to more promos next month since its OUR birthday month (yup! its hubby’s n my bday month!!!!) So if your birthday is next month, please look out for our “Specials”!!!! Cant wait!

There are so many requests of namecards from us, at the moment, we are still sourcing printers to do namecards and InshaAllah, I really would like to have my own paperbags too! That will have to wait a little bit longer I guess so it’ll be just those red plastic bags for now! Hehehe

Since I’ve started working, my time is really limited. So I apologize if I have not answer your enqueries any sooner. Especially those enquiries on the prices, because, the prices are found at the website/blog itself. Of course if there’s any changes, it’ll always be featured directly in my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. More often and actively available is through Instagram.

Thank you again friends, till we meet again! (hint : Father’s Day) hahahaha!

New Adventure Ahead!

Standard

The highlight of today’s order is a request from my aunt to prepare an engagement package. I was nervous and excited at the same time. Of course there’s lots of room to improve on this package. So tell me what you think okay? Is it appropriate even?

Today is just the beginning of what will lie ahead when it’s time to do the Mother’s Day package next week. I am excited for that one too coz it now involves small hand bouquets for the mommies! Here’s a glimpse of the cupcake toppers, do note that not one of the boxes are the same, everyone will have different toppers. You see, being a Gemini means I get bored easily with the same old thing and that is why I will always have different toppers each time.

20120505-235123.jpg

I am so glad that most of my customer friends would actually trust me to design these toppers and given me the chance to explore.

Last but not least, BIRTHDAYS! Simply love doing birthday toppers! This one is for a lady who have no idea that she’s getting it! How sweet is her friend to surprise her like that!

20120505-235832.jpg

The Snickers Nutella Cupcakes seem to be a favorite order, I guess it’s new anyways. The recipe that I followed from one of the websites seem to add too much sugar! Why do they always do that?! I am so glad that I managed to create my own Nutella frosting (sssshhh…trade secret lor so cannot tell, soweee) hahaha…ok if you’re nice to me I will share the recipe one of these days k.

20120506-000551.jpg

Doesn’t it simply look good beside each other?

I really wished that not only the cuppies look good but taste good too. So your feedbacks are really appreciated! Please do tell if there’s room for me to improve, after all I am just an amateur in baking, really.

Enjoy your weekend, I know I will coz I will be working my a** off to prepare for the coming week!

Snickers + Nutella = Snictella? (ok lame title obviously)

A quick update!

Claimed day off today, running errands for the next few days orders. Thank you friends for the support AGAIN! You keep me going although now my working days are craaaayzee but Alhamdullilah I managed to divide time as much as possible although I might be kinda slacked on homebound! Actually the person I should really thank is my dear husband for being my rock and obviously my business partner cum driver! He’s been the most understanding person ever! (you should see my messy house and you’ll get what I meant by him being understanding lah!)

Ok that’s it, till next update!

Enjoy drooling again 😉

Evolved and loving it!

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!

20120430-210150.jpg

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

20120430-211233.jpg

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!

20120430-204418.jpg

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

20120430-214615.jpg

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)

Standard

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!
