Before I was put on bed rest, I was working on some gift packs with a very nice mummy!
I am always happy when I get customised orders because it would mean throwing me out of my comfort zone, and maybe doing something that’s quite new to me 🙂
I’ve used my favourite vanilla chiffon sponge cake base, with swiss meringue buttercream so it stays better in our climate, and with those cute piping jelly!
A taste of that really reminded me of my childhood.
It is a good time, now, to reflect on what I’ve done the past half year. I started to take in more orders from May onwards, and my very first fondant cake was in May itself. I always attributed my “skills” to the talent that God has given me.
Will you believe that I only really started doing frosted whole cakes in Dec 2014, and fondant cakes in May 2015? 🙂
I probably overloaded myself and allowed myself to be busier than what God has intended me to! A friend once told me that God’s will is nothing more than having enough time for God apart from work. That’s a really sound advice that I had been trying / struggling to keep to!
The cookies above were my first attempt, so they don’t look really round hahha. I was glad that the actual cookies turned out better 🙂
And that reminds me! 3 more months to my own darling’s birthday. I really hope I would be mobile by then to make her her favourite cakes!
