Private Class: Luxasia - 25 June 2014

Trainer for Luxasia, Adrian Sin, wanted a fun time out for his Guerlain fragrance sales consultants as part of his training programme. We thought it was a wonderful idea. Luxasia represents cool brands like Anna Sui, Burberry, Bvlgari, Calvin Kein.... the list goes on.

Adrian discussed their needs with us and since Guerlain is a french brand, we decided to conduct a Macarons class for them. Adrian also wanted to add on another simple baking using honey as one of the ingredients which is represented in their latest Guerlain fragrance. Wow! We suggested Honey Cupcakes with a bumble bee fondant icon. That will be fun.

Fun indeed it was. The team arrived cheery and chirpy, very excited about their class. Our cake decorator, Sandy, took them thru the rudiments of piping and baking the multi-coloured macarons using the french method (of course)!

The end results were simply brilliant given that almost everyone had never baked before but now, they are self proclaimed master chefs of macarons. Yeah! Everyone was so happy with their effort, not to mention the lovely macarons and cupcakes they get to take home to show off to their family and friends.

What a great way to bond with team mates and spend time away from work. If you would like to do a team building event, give us a call at 016-377 8236 or e-mail us at We can help you fit any budget.

Cake of the month - June 2014

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 4-tier Mickey Mouse Cake. This was a special cake to celebrate little Viroshan’s 3rd birthday. Mum Pravinah who was coming up all the way from Johor Bahru to KL to celebrate the son's birthday, said that It was gonna be a party for 70-80 people.

So, we suggested our 3-tier Mickey Mouse Celebration cake but add on another 10 inch tier with Mickey Mouse icons. Pravinah was happy with the 4-tier design and what a fantastic cake it was to show off to family and friends at the birthday party.

Well, we can't be happier than to know we have made someone happy. Have a special event coming up? Need a special cake? Take a peek at our Cake Creations gallery: For enquiries on our custom order designer cakes, please send us an e-mail at We try to help fit all budgets.

Private Class: WAKE Children - 31 May 2014

When Shin contacted us to conduct a baking class for the WAKE orphanage, we were delighted to be part of a project to bring a little cheer and joy to these children. As part of corporate social responsibility, we conducted the class for Shin at a nominal fee to cover our cost, which means we make no money out of it. We agreed to do a cupcake baking and decorating class for the children.

As the children arrived on that saturday afternoon, they were shy and kept very much to themselves but once the class started and everyone start to get their hands onto the butter, sugar and eggs, the shyness disappeared. They were an enthusiastic bunch who have never done any baking before but their creativity shine through when they started to shape fondant into various designs to decorate their cupcakes. Needless to say, everyone had a fun time including the volunteers who were present to lend the children a hand.

Well, we were happy that we made a group of children very happy too! If you have a CSR project and would like to conduct a baking class, talk to us at 016-377 8236 or send us an e-mail at We will be glad to assist.
