Finally!! I cheated a little and bought the macaron pyramid from here. Baked macarons on the previous weekend using the same recipe as always.
Ta-dah! Macaron “Tower”. Wait, it’s Macaron Pyramid. It reminds me of the Lourve Museum. I went there last year but I didn’t get to take the photo of the pyramid. Regrets! Only the picture below.
Anyway, Mama baked Red Velvet cupcakes and this time she used the recipe from Bisous À Toi. Mama added nutella creamcheese frosting inside the cupcakes and top it with the normal creamcheese rosette. And she made them into a bouquet of flowers. Last minute idea in the middle of the night!!
I hope Adik is happy with the bakes we did for her birthday. Did not really have an actual round birthday cake though. And after one year, finally, there’s macarons! With pyramid!! :D
I shall try to bake something else soon.
Mama had quite a number of orders yesterday. And for the first time since I came back, I went to help her for 11 hours. Mixture of main dishes and desserts; that explains the long hours!
We did the Apam Polkadots.
And brownies with all the drizzling and m&ms.
And the frosting of 100 rainbow cupcakes. I had to do this alone cause Adek was working yesterday.
Had a hard time frosting cause I haven’t been doing them for a long time. Mama used cream cheese frosting and since my hand is always unnaturally warm, the frosting always melt by the 3rd cupcake.
Thought of baking macs again soon! Cause Adek wanted a macaron tower since last year. :S Hope I make it in time for her birthday this year. I’m already 1 year late though.

I have been very lazy lately. Also have been enjoying myself ordering cakes/food online.
Ordered Red Velvet Cupcakes via facebook from<deleted> last week. You can also view their website <deleted>.
Love the cupcakes! Especially the surprise chocolate filling. We gobbled them up in less than a day! :)
Great service too cause they will reply to your queries promptly. Almost within the next second!
Thought I share this photo as well. Even Baby D loves it!
A little disclaimer: I am not a food critic or anything, I just love to eat. Haha!
*Decided to delete every info about the cake seller. The cupcakes were good, their online service was okay but the delivery wise, not at all. Mun ordered a rainbow cake earlier and the delivery was 4 hours late!! Today, 24th April 2012, she ordered another cake (giving them a chance) and they were 2 hours late and the quality of cake sucks. I’m surprised!
I might have volunteer myself to do hantaran cupcakes again for Mama’s friend. I am an amateur baker/decorator/whatever-er. The only experience I had (wait, was that even called experience?) was for.. Zie’s engagement. And I couldn’t even take nice picture of it. (But I do enjoy doing them!)
So now off I go to “research” (Thanks to Google and Youtube!).
Here’s a couple of videos to be amazed at:-
The complicated rose.
Slightly simpler rose or rosettes?
And lastly, the WOW videos – bouquet of flowers cupcakes.
One thing that I wonder regading the bouquet, will the buttercream just simply fell off? Hmmmm. Too risky but very interesting!
Looks like I have to practice right? hee. Excited!! :)
