Adidas Superstar Shoe Cake

As promised, here are the picture of the sneaker cake. I'm so tired because I didn't get any sleep last night, so I'm just going to post the picture. ;)

This is how it looked before fondant. The cake was actually vanilla butter cake with ganache. Since I didn't has enough time to freeze then carve, I've to carve what I can and pasted the mashed left-over crumbs and ganache to take the the shoe shape.

Oops the royal icing bled!

Red Queen Wedding Cake

This is actually the reproduction of the Cinderella cake but when the client wanted to change the color scheme to white, red and black, I think the Red Queen inspired theme is more appropriate. So here is the result. The top cake is the cutting cake, which set on a steel 3 tier cake stand.

Gingerbread Man by Dainty Cupcake

Christmas is just around the corner, too bad we don't have snow in KL. Bought this gorgeous copper cookie cutter set last week. I actually wanted only the gingerbread-man shape, but the oversize ones were out of stock. So bought the expensive set instead.

See how the gingerbread-man turned out after the jump.

Yellow Butterfly Cake

Made this for my fiance's colleague's wedding.

4 layers of chocolate and vanilla cake with Italian meringue buttercream filling and crumb-coated. Covered with homemade chocolate-brown fondant and decorated with light yellow (creamish) gumpaste.

The butterflies won't dry and hardened so had to be creative and scatter the fondant balls so that they can lift the butterflies.

Sprinkles some gold sugar to give it whimsical look.

Italian Meringue Kisses

Italian Meringue by Dainty Cupcake
This is my first attempt in making the famous Italian Meringue. I was curious on the taste. Some say the texture is crunchy, light and melt in your mouth. I personally think it taste like cotton candy. Only better. But the downside would be, it took so long to dry and become crunchy and it smells of egg. But never the less, i like it very much but not sure if I'll make it again because of the long baking time.

Another Black White And Red Cupcakes

I guess Black White and Red is a popular color combination. So my cousin's niece (or is it my cousin's cousin? we're related somehow but not sure how ;)) wanted to order cupcakes for her 25th birthday. It was a really last minute order but since I have time, I accept the order. 

Anyway, what's interesting with this order was, she wanted some of the cupcakes to have black frosting. Usually when people requested black, I'll recommend using chocolate ganache instead. So, as requested, I made black Swiss meringue buttercream for the topping. The texture is lighter than the normal buttercream because of the meringue (egg-white and sugar combination). I keep adding the color because it won't become black. Just dark gray. Afraid of having a foul tasted frosting, I kept back from adding the whole bottle of charcoal black and settled with the dark gray.

Black + White + Red cupcakes

Hi people,

Made these cupcakes a while ago but only now have the time to upload it.. As usual when customer order online and needed delivery service, I'll ask for the complete address and google map it since my phone is way low tech and my car does not has gps built in, as oppose to most cars in the USA and Europe. Moving on, on the day of delivery I was working. So after baring with hundreds or thousands other motorist, I manage to get home without having any new scratches (yupe, I'm the typical overconfident, quick-tempered and ill-patient driver), took the cupcakes, took the notebook (I've to tutor Java afterword) and drive while looking at the map.

Dessert Buffet

I've always admire pictures of gorgeous dessert buffet in the blogs. From the first time I've stumbled onto those pictures, I wanted to create my own dessert buffet but never have the occasion to make one. So I'm thinking why not make it for other people. Yeah, why not? I sure can bake delicious goodies..and what I can't make I can always source out. I'm pretty sure I'm gifted to make the decor. So, if anyone would like me to do the honor of creating a fun and unique dessert table for your parties or events, please email at

For now, I leave you with this pretty eye candies...

3 tiers Wedding Cake

June has arrive and it's filled with beautiful weddings, blushing brides, nervous groom and excited wedding attendants. I made this cake a while ago but only now I have time to post it here. This very simple 3 tiers chocolate cake is covered with white chocolate. White chocolate because 1st, the bride dislike fondant and 2nd because it need to travel from KL to JB on a bumpy ride.

It was my first time doing 3 tiers cake and well covering a big cake with white chocolate is so hard for people without formal training like me. After a few tries, I figured that it would be easier to melt it, spread and cooled it on  parchment paper then cut to size and patch it up like making box.

The bride also requested cupcakes for wedding gives/ hantaran  /wedding dowry. Using the same color scheme;pink, I decorated the cupcakes with pink rose buds and little white and blue flowers. They was then put in a nice transparent box and prettied up with ribbons. The pictures aren't good because I only have my phone to take the pictures and lighting was bad. But still glad that I can share this with you guys.

More wedding cupcakes coming in tomorrow... :)

Black & White Wedding Cupcakes (Hataran)

Hello people! We've been lazy to take pictures and update our blog. So after much struggle, here is another picture of our work. Black & White themed wedding is quite popular lately. The cupcakes were chocolate and were meant for wedding dowry (hantaran). 9 large cupcakes fit nicely in a clear PVC box.

Carriage Roses / Butterfly Wedding (Hantaran) Cake

Girls usually dream on having a perfect wedding. A fairytale wedding is what most girls want. This cake I made was inspired from the famous fairytale associated with weddings; Cinderella. I was given a very short notice to make a wedding gives cake or kek hantaran in Bahasa Malaysia. The customer request for a cake with peach colored flowers to match the color scheme. Since no specific instructions were given, my mind went wild with creativity. I wanted to design something special and unique. I also wanted to differ from the common wedding/ hantaran cake design. After browsing the internet for inspirations, I finally came out with the initial sketch. However, I wasn't satisfies so I changed it again and again. 

It was decided that the cake would be covered with fondant icing. Eventually when the time ran out, I started decorating the cake. While putting the pieces together, I had another idea. Why not let the cake has 2 designs. 2 in 1, genius right. so instead of having 1 front, the cake had 2 fronts. Don't get it? Take a look at the pictures. You'll get the idea. The result, a unique and special wedding/ hantaran cake.

This was also my first timedoing scroll work with royal icing. I got it wrong first, the royal icing consistency was very thick that the icing bag leaked a few times with the pressure. But after thinned it for a bit, it was OK. Looking forward to do more practice on royal icing. 

I hope more people will order cake or cupcake with me. Challenge me with tricky designs. Specialty cake is my passion.

Ciao (^_^)
