sweets for my sweet

Just showing off the little sugar bombs I made for my lovely niece’s b’day!! I made 68 of these things, which took almost 3 hours from the time I weigh the material til everythings neatly wrapped up. I was instructed to keep the decoration simple and hassle free as I possibly could, hehe…

Cupcakes are usually easy to make, and it’s almost foolproof, haha.. again, I was asked to make a basic recipe cupcake, which was actually more difficult to find than among the interesting cupcakes variations!! So it was basic cupcake, but I just HAD to make them pretty n pink, she’s 6, pink and purple are the only color she knows, hihi.. Even the glazing was pink, but it almost looks white compared to the pink dish :|.

So the b’day girl called me last night, reeaally excited, telling me what happened to the cupcakes – apparently she could give it to everybody in her class, and then pick out the kids she knows from adjoining classes. And those kids were squeeling at top of their lungs, "ME..ME..ME!!" – even the teachers wanted the cupcakes instead of the grownup cakes. So I suppose Lyzette was feeling highly important, weighing out who gets the cakes and who doesn’t… Hmm.. that doesn’t really seem fair – they’re just kids!! How would you feel if the kid next to you gets one of these and all you can do is look? Cruel!! 😐

Anyway, so many people asked me why I made the cupcakes. To them, those cupcake seems like an huge big hassle to make. I guess it all started from my childhood, I still remember the elaborate Wilton decorated cakes my mum used to make me, the last one was a doll with buttercream blond hair with a blue pinafore… My classmates would be invited for the party with special treats, and I felt like a little princess amid all the oohs and aahs of my friends while I opened the gifts :). I still remember how it felt when I got that little ring with a fake ruby on it, or the barbie snow mobile and swimming pool.

Wow. Amazing, isn’t it…my family was never rich when it comes to worldly possessions, but if I look back, it’s so ovbious that we were indeed richly blessed, more than money could actually buy :).

And I suppose it’s those childhood memories that I was trying to enliven when I baked those cupcakes 🙂

  1. Want to start your private office arms race right now?

    I just got my own USB rocket launcher 🙂 Awsome thing.

    Plug into your computer and you got a remote controlled office missile launcher with 360 degrees horizontal and 45 degree vertival rotation with a range of more than 6 meters – which gives you a coverage of 113 square meters round your workplace.
    You can get the gadget here: http://tinyurl.com/2qul3c

    Check out the video they have on the page.

  2. I’ve got an Amazon gift certificate burning holes in my pocket,
    and I want to get the most bang for my buck.

    Enter the Secret Amazon Web Pages:

    http://tinyurl.com/38sojf

    This is where you’re going to find the “latest sales, rebates, and limited-time offers” from
    Amazon, and you can score some pretty deep discounts if you’re a savvy shopper.

    Next, there’s the special Sale link. This is open every Friday, and ONLY on Fridays.

    You can find the same good discounts here as you would in hidden Deals, although some
    Fridays you can really get lucky and make off like an Amazon bandit – I’ve seen discounts
    there as low as 75% off sticker price.
