Thomas in 3D

There is always a first for everyone, right?! Well, here's my first attempt of a 3D Thomas. This cake was requested by B's colleague's son who's a big Thomas fan. B's colleague requested for The Island of Sodor. This is the closest that I can come up with given that the surface area of the cake was a wee bit small to accommodate a volcano (yupp... was planning on doing a volcano but had to scrap it due to space constraint).

Underneath all those cream, lies an American Chocolate Cake topped with dark chocolate ganache. I would like to think that Thomas and Clarabel are chugging away around the Island of Sodor, passing pools and meadows filled with blossoming flowers. I used brown sugar to cover the remaining of the cake board to imitate the beach that surrounds the island.

A close-up of Thomas which I borrowed from Zareef's many, many trains. I even doubt he'll miss it given that he's so into all things Transformers right now.

My source of inspiration, also courtesy from Zareef's vast collection of all things Thomas which I religiously collected at car boot sales during our 4 years stint in Loughborough.

Ramadhan and Syawal Cake Orders

Dear all,

Due to overwhelming response from all of my dear customers who have kindly ordered cakes for the month of Ramadhan and Syawal, I would like to say thank you very much from the bottom of my heart.

Orders are still open but you would have to pick them up from my house except for international orders, where I'll deliver the cakes to their respective houses. Last day to order will be on the 7th October 2007. Last day to pick up your cakes will be on the 11th October 2007. Then it'll be close shop for a week.

Business will resume as usual on the 18th October 2007.

Since I have no elves to help me with baking and decorating, I will not be doing any cartoon character birthday cakes (those who have ordered, you're fine).

Choices of cakes are:

American Chocolate Fudge Brownies
Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Topping
American Chocolate Cake
Prune Cake

So have a look-see and start ordering ya! Thank you for your kind patronage.

Cakes Galore

It has been a very, very long time since I last updated my cakes. Reason being, the whole family has been attacked by an unknown virus that was too strong for us to resist for the whole two months. We were ill for an average of 3 times each with temperature reaching the highs of 40. B ended our illness saga with being admitted into Sunway Medical for denggi.

Okay, enough about being ill. Lets get to cake business. Please feast your eyes on the cakes that I've done for the past months. There are too many stories to be told so I'll just cut to the chase and let you have a plethora feast of cakes...
