Post CNY break

Pardon me for leaving this blog unattended for the past few days. It feels lazy to jot down something, even though at times i feel like there are a lot to tell, and share at this space.

We went back to hub's hometown in Kedah during the last CNY break. 5 hours on the road from KL-Tapah..what a tiring journey!  Tambah another 2 hours baru sampai ke Kedah perghhh dahsyat penangan cuti kali nih. As usual, i piled up some weight whenever we were away for long holidays...apa taknya keja tak habis2 makan..makan..dan makan lagik! Right after the break, i.e. the first day i came back to the office, i decided to fast ....ok jgn gelak yer, puasa ganti (laaa belum habis2 ganti lagi!) while at the same time cuba menginsafkan diri dgn kurang makan :p But i had a bad migraine the whole day that i felt like vomiting every now n seconds...iskk dah lama tak puasa mmg lemah betul badan. If only i didnt have to chair a nego meeting on the evening mmg dah lama i chow balik rumah :(

This is a super large 3kg red velvet cake that i made back in hub's hometown the other day. Saja buat sempena majlis bertunang anak sulung makcik hubby...but this is not the hantaran tunang la of course. Buat utk family mkn2 jer. Apparently the making of this cake was full of drama - pinjam mixer SIL (kitchenaid tau kalah mixer i kahkah), nozle pinjam maksu, piping bag mintak ihsan maksu...that colourful hundreds n thousands pon maksu yg kasik! :p Godek almari mak mujur ada red coloring alhamdulillah! Other ingredients like cream cheese, fresh milk and butter were bought at Tesco :) Alhamdulillah now all the relatives know what is rv...and they acknowledged the distinctive taste of this cake...ramai suke :) Nx time saya buat lagik ok!!

This is marble choc cheese brownies ordered from a colleague cum a return customer in Annexe 2. Thanks k.Ita!
and another tray of the same cake also ordered by k.ita on behalf of her colleague. thanks Ad!
This is carrot walnut cup cakes ordered by k.arny, were taken to the groom's side at ulu yam for a majlis bertandang (kenduri dah lepas yer). Penuh drama jugak penghasilan kek nih. Mula2 kak arny nak 2-tier carrot cakes sbb nk potong time majlis, but since i'll be leaving to kedah on early saturday morning, susah plak nk buat pick up arrangement. takkan dia nk dtg rumah ai sebelum subuh kan kihkih. then k.arny said she'll try to find alternative, and i got to know that my travel partner in crime cum baker friend Farra yg akan buat kek k.arny..ok cun! Then farra texted me over the weekend asked if i can make the cup cakes while she handled the cakes...so i said okla kalau k.arny willing to pick up on friday. and then farra pulak, instead of 2-tier cakes akhirnya jadi 2 ketul whole cakes sbb tak muat nk simpan dlm fridge :p

this is a 1.5kg red velvet cake..ordered by my ex-colleague kak wan from PDM. dah jadi hajah dah dia...alhamdulillah and thanx kak wan...doakan saya pula yg akan dpt jemputan menjadi tetamuNya di tanah suci tak lama lagi insya allah :)
another 1.5kg rv, made special for my good friend back in mmu - my classmate, my thesis mate, also my jiran in Putrajaya :) He whatsapp me and asked...best sgt ke rv? and i said...rv is special on its own class..susah nak cakap. He then ordered and said...ya allah tak sabarnya nak rasa...sedap tak? then i replied again...ko tanyer tukang buat mestilah ckp sedap...tekak org lain tak tahu la kan hehe! alhamdulillah after i delievered the cake his msg somehow made my day ~ thanks yati..marvellous sedap giler. You're welcome my friend..aku doakan kau cepat ketemu jodoh :)

Another lace design on rv cake...made special for cik ippa as the mother called it hihi. Happy birthday dear Iffah..may u hv all the happiness in this world..and blessed with iman n amal insya Allah. Thanks k.ija for the repeat order :) 

and that's about it.
no cake for myself ya.
it's hard to resist from not whipping up something for me while i bake for orders....arghh kena igt mau diet diet diet..berat dah naik tulungggggg!

but still i cheated anyway. whatever rv crumbs left on the pans...i took them and ate with the cream cheese haha...jgn marah yer! baker can do anything to satisfy her own craving isnt it? wakakaka
