Raya Cupcakes - Thorn amongst the Roses

We did our 2nd Hari Raya Special cupcakes class on 21 July and there he was, Hafeez who was the thorn amongst the roses. But don't judge a book by its cover. Who says men can't bake or worst still, have nimble hands to shape fondant decorations to decorate cupcakes for Hari Raya!? Hafeez indeed a patient student, very eager to learn and had very creative hands. Once he don his apron, there was no stopping him from creating his beautiful Hari Raya cupcakes. His set of cupcakes was the best decorated of the lot. Qudos to Hafeez! You made our day!

Smiley Faces at our No.1 Class

Without a doubt, Our Mad for Macaroons class is still our No.1 class. All our macaroons class are booked solid until end Aug. Looking at our photo book, we just had to feature our latest macaroons class on 19 July because the students who came were all so cheerful and smiley. Look at their smiles and joy learning how to bake those sweet delectable treats at our studio. We are doing some R&D right now to set a new trend (fingers crossed), better than macaroons that is! What can be better? Well, keep a look out for our next quarter (Sept-Dec) class calender.

Cake of the month - June 2011

It’s time again for us to feature our “Cake of the month” to showcase what we consider our best custom made order cake. The Cake of the month for June is a special Birthday cake for Mrs Tan’s husband. Mrs Tan wanted a simple birthday cake decorated with all her husband’s favourite things as surprise gift for her husband. The request was golf, tennis, durian, their two dogs and desserts!

Mrs Tan was pleasantly surprised when she collected her cake and was pleased that all of her husband’s favourite things were on the cake. This is what she had to say “Look at the detailing. It’s marvelous. The detailing on the durian, even our two dogs looking like real rottweilers! Thank you At 19.” Well, another satisfied customer. We are happy when our customers are happy.

Corporate Event - Hewlett Packard (1) - 15 July

Hazlina was very excited when she approached us to hold a corporate event for her finance dept. They wanted to do a private baking class, something different from the usual cupcakes. Macaroons….well not really!? Yes, yes….let’s do bread & pastry. That’s something different. So, we designed a special bread & pastry class for Hewlett Packard’s finance dept based on the budget that they had to spend. Hazlina was pleased with our proposal and got her boss to approve it within a week. Wow! boss Tony also like to bake eh? We could see the smile on his face when he rolled and shape the dough into buns and bread. We even had him assemble his own special cafĂ© style tart.

Everyone enjoyed themselves and so did we! Everyone sat down for tea after all their hard work to sample their own bread & pastry….with more to take home too. Oops! Forgot to mention that we threw in a competition. There were 4 groups – Muffins, Pavola, Finger Roll and Bread Cakes. They were competing for cash vouchers from At 19 and judged by 3 simple criterias. We must say that the scores were very close but there can only be one winner….Finger Roll. Hip2 Hurray! Finger Roll put on a marvelous show of teamwork, creativeness and lots of tidiness. They even cleaned out the chef’s work station…how’s that for initiative!

Well, we hope Hazlina, boss Tony and team enjoyed the event as much as we did organizing it for them. Cheers!! If you would like to organize a corporate event for your team, talk to us, e-mail:

Bridal Shower: Cupcakes in a Pot - 3 July

When Azlina approached us to hold a cupcakes baking class for her sister, Azura's bridal shower, we were delighted. The theme is Orange, Orange, Orange! The bride-to-be is crazy over anything and everything orange from fruits to colours. We quickly put on our thinking caps and came up with Orange & Poppy Seed muffins for tea, orange daisies to decorate the tables. We even brought out our new orange coloured kitchen aid mixer just for Azura!

What an event it was. All the girls arrived in their best baju and everyone looked fantastic. Of course the bribe-to-be came in orange (without a doubt) and everyone enjoyed themselves baking, chit chatting, chilling out without boyfriends and husbands. Great stuff. We wish you the very best Azura....Happliy Ever After from all of us At 19!
