Cake of the month - May 2015

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 May is to celebrate Little Zi Yao's 1st Birthday. Mum, Jess Chong, changed the design many times but finally settled with a Baby Mickey cake which will match her blue and white party theme. We made a delicious 3-tier moist chocolate cake with alternating tiers of blue and white decorated with Mickey icon lollipops.

As soon as Jess received the cake which was delivered to her house on the day of the party, she sent us a text to let us know that it was a beautiful cake. We loved the design too. The cake had a 6 inch bottom, a 5 inch middle tier with a 3.5 inch top tier. Jess wanted a blue no.1 candle and it was hard to find. We went to almost every ingredients shop in town. They either did not have blue or don't have the No.1. Well, we finally managed to crack the code! Happy Birthday Baby Zi Yao!

Well, we can't be happier than to know we have made someone happy. Have a special event coming up? Need a special cake?

We try to help fit all budgets.
