Hari Raya
It's been a while since my last update (3 months!).  Hadn't any interesting orders to show.  There was one order for Hari Raya but October is a good month :)

This was a 1.5kg cheese cake with cheese topping and
sugar paste flowers.

This client wanted a 1.5kg moist chocolate cake with a little girl figurine for her 7 year old god-daughter. But 3 days before delivery date she changed her order because her god-daughter wanted a Barbie cake! This was my first Barbie cake and I frantically called my supplier for the special cake tin and a pretty Barbie to go with it.  To get the proper height 2.5kg of cake was required and I had to specially make the box to fit the cake.  Good thing I kept some large cardboard from Ikea!  ;)

At the moment we have 3 cats, Peggy, Ebony and Manja, and a kitten, Pikachu (which I am trying to find a home for).  The first one we saved is called Peggy.  My son, Russell, loved her very much when she was little and spent a lot of time playing with her.  As she grew up she became very "proud" and doesn't quite like us to stroke her.  But she'll come to us for some attention when she's in the mood!  She's dark brown with tiger-like stripes and white feet, with a small white patch on her nose. I've only managed to make her a plain dark brown with white toes and a little white patch on her nose.  No one knew it was supposed to be her but...oh well!

One of my regular clients ordered these cupcakes for a karaoke lunch.

 Some college students ordered these cupcakes for a gathering for
Pei Yi who was going overseas to study.

My nephew ordered this half kg moist chocolate cake for a church friend who plays the keyboard. 

My son, Jack, is a die-hard Paramore fan!  I wanted to make a Night Fury (How to Train Your Dragon) cake for his birthday coz he just adores Night Fury but we ended up with Paramore instead!  I was pretty busy with the keyboard cake and work, so after preparing the yellow wings for the butterfly I called Jack from office and asked him to fill in the pattern with an artline pen (coz Jack's very artistic).  
This is the fantastic result!

Humpty Dumpty
This little 3 year-old is into nursery rhymes and her mummy said Humpty Dumpty is probably her favourite.  "Probably" because every time you ask her, she mentions a different rhyme!  My nephew was around when I was planning the design and he suggested I use a real egg.  He wasn't serious but I thought it was a great idea! Of course I emptied the egg and used just the shell  ;)

Church Celebration
The church my sisters attend had a little celebration in appreciation of their pastors.  I used buttercream to pipe their logo on sugar paste.
