To Stay Or Not To Stay

Hello guys. First of all we would like to thank all of you who've been buying our cupcakes and reading our blog. As you know, Dainty Cupcake was born about a year ago. It's just a small thing, baking and decorating cupcakes at home and joining the odd bazaars. We've open a small cupcake cart in Sungei Wang about a month and a week ago. The lease is for 2 months only. We were, or we are testing the market for selling cupcakes in a mall. Sadly though, the sales are not as expected. It barely cover the cost, we are selling the cupcakes with very low price anyway when we should charge more. Although we have some repeat customers to prove that our cupcakes are delicious, we are discourage to renew our lease for it would not be a good business move.


So, we regret to say that our cart will only open until mid January. But afraid not, for we will still accept orders online. With delivery service provided of course. We also hope that with more time available in our schedule, more order for custom cupcakes or cakes will come our way. We'll also use this time to design more awesome cupcakes & cakes. So, do keep reading our blog for more confectionery arts. When the time comes, maybe we'll open another shop so that you can have our cupcakes whenever you feels like it.

Until then, 'Bon appetit', Julia Child in Julie & Julia ;)

Wedding Cupcakes - Pink Roses And Purple Lace


This is the most recent wedding gives cupcakes (hantaran perkahwinan) that we made. We are actually quite proud of it. The order was made base on a picture given by the customer. She wanted purple lace as the base and topped with pink roses. It was not a perfect copy of the original design since we don't feel too good being a copycat ;P Centerpiece was made using 4 cupcakes gathered under the larger fondant lace and surrounded with single cupcakes.



Wedding Cupcakes - Chocolate & Red Roses


Chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream and a 7 red fondant ribbon roses to resemble a bouquet of roses made for wedding gives (hantaran). It's actually quite tricky to deliver since the cream was soft and the roses were heavy. We're going to use royal icing next time to avoid another cupcake mishap.

The Story Behind Dainty Cupcake



Dainty Cupcake was founded by a young lady who enjoys creating pretty things. Baking is one of her passion. She made her first cake when she was only 10 years old! Without attending any formal school for pastry or culinary art, she managed to improvise her baking and decorating skills through a much enjoyable learning process. Baking for friends and family fuel her ambition to open her own bake shop. Who would have thought that an IT grad has the creativity and talent to decorate cakes. Today, the dream of opening her own shop has became true.

Dainty Cupcake believes in providing not only good looking cupcakes and cakes, but also delicious. We would like to emphasize that Dainty Cupcake only use HALAL ingredients.

Graduation Cupcakes


Graduation Cupcake with scroll, apple and signs details.

I'd made these cupcake last 2 weeks. They were ordered by an old friend for her graduation day. The main idea was to present pretty delicious cupcakes to her friends during the graduation ceremony. So I designed and made the cupcakes, all 20 of them. But sadly, she never had the chance to pick the cupcakes and my tries to deliver them also failed because she didn't answer her phone("why? why??"). I kept the cupcake for about a week. Can't put them in the fridge since the decorations will be damaged due to condensation. So after a week, still no news, I'd to do a very sad thing...threw them away. I hope I don't have to do that again.

Cute Bowling Themed Cupcakes


Banana flavored cupcakes with banana butter cream,
chocolate bowling ball and fondant bowling pin


We made and order of bowling themed cupcakes sometime last week. The result looked cute and taste good. We are actually proud of the fondant decorations, since we made the fondant ourselves from scratch. Well, we actually had made fondant previously but since we didn't manage to find all the exact ingredients, the fondant turned out to taste not so good and crumbly thus difficult to work with. But last week , for the first time, we manage to sourced all the ingredients that make good rolled fondant. Yes that's right, our cupcakes use quality ingredients and 100% homemade. No cheating.

Photos of Dainty Cupcake (formerly known as D's Cupcakes) @ KLPac Open Day

Yes, yes we know it's old news. But we don't care, we still want to upload the pictures from last event @ KLPac Open Day. They're not great pictures but enough to show you our booth that day. Cute ~(*_^)~

This was our handmade, self-designed signboard with DIY stand.
Yupe, we were very creative in investing our funds in good ingredients instead of other things.

These are Zetsy Orange cupcakes arranged on DIY tray. Pretty, huh? ;P
Did we mentioned that we made the card holder ourselves? (^_^)
There was a cute little boy that insisted his mom to buy the card holder.

Chocolate cupcake + chocolate granache + sugar hearts decoration = Chocoholic cupcakes!
Chocoholic was the fastest selling cupcakes that day.

You see that guy wearing a green shirt in the back ground? He's Noah like
the Noah Ark. He sold pictures that he took while living in some remote
village in the rain forest.Those 2 people looking at the camera were force to
pose for whoever behind the camera ;p
