Congratulations Newlyweds Cindy & Daniel!

Congratulations to the newlyweds Cindy and Daniel!  I got the privilege and honor in making the cupcake tower for Cindy and Daniel's wedding this past June!  I made fondant flowers and hearts to adorn the cupcakes, along with some mint colored mini flags with gold hearts on them made out of scrapbook paper glued to toothpicks.  I also made mini tissue paper pom poms and bunt banner for the cake topper too.  The cupcakes are red velvet cupcakes with whipped cream cheese filling, and french vanilla cupcakes.  The cake was a mixed berry cake from Givral, and I decorated it myself with the cake topper, a mint colored ribbon for the base border, and edible gold pearls to accent the quilted look on the sides of the cake.  The cupcake tower was accented with gold ribbon, and overall the tower looked very nice and elegant!  It's always so nice to be able to be a part of a couple's big day, and I'm glad I got to share the memories with you guys!  Congratulations Cindy and Daniel, what a fun day to start of your new life together as husband and wife!!  here's to many more celebrations and fun memories together!!

Happy 2nd Birthday Lily!

Happy 2nd birthday to my sweet baby girl Lily (back on June 8th, sorry Lily for the late post)!  Since her birthday is in the summer and we were having her celebration outdoors, I didn't want to have a cake that would be sitting out for a couple hours and possibly melting.  So I made her another display cake for her dessert table!  Her birthday theme is an enchanted fairy garden theme and so I wanted to make a charming, simple yet elegant cake.  All the decorations are made of fondant and I used some gold pearls for accents.  This is also the first time I made a nice big peony flower, and I'm very excited with how it came out!  It's the fullest flower I've made so far and it excites me more to expand my knowledge and skills in cake decorating!  I'll also be entering this cake to the OC fair for the formal fondant decorated cake category, so wish me luck everyone!

***UPDATE:***  Lily's cake won 3rd place at the OC Fair!!  Woohoo!!

Don't be afraid to try new things and leave your comfort zone when trying to develop your craft, that's what this cake adventure is all about for me!  Without that extra push to learn, you will never improve and grow.  It's only been 2 years of being a mom to my sweet Lily pad, but I've learned that each new day as a parent is a new adventure, and you're constantly learning, growing and adapting to life.  I've watched my Lily pad grow so much in the past 2 years and she's growing into such a beautiful being, I just love her so much, she is my everything.  She inspires me everyday she is my world.  Happy 2nd birthday my precious Lily!!  Here's to many many more birthdays to come!  Also, special thanks to my friend Mieng for capturing the beautiful photos of her below! =)

Happy Birthday Westley & Aria!

Happy 1st Birthday Westley and Aria!  I got the honor and pleasure of making the cutest little twins Westley and Aria's 1st birthday cake for their very first birthday party yesterday!  One of their favorite shows is a British cartoon Peppa Pig and so that was the theme for their party!  Due to lack of time and energy, I ordered a mixed berry cake from our favorite bakery Givral, and then decorated it with fondant.  All the decorations are fondant minus the banner.  I designed the simple banner and printed it out on cardstock, then string the pennants together with a needle and thread!  I tied them to skewers and voila, a cute bunt banner for a cute cake!  The very first birthday is always the most special and important, so I feel super honored and happy that I got to be a part of that.  I wish sweet Westley and Aria a wonderful birthday and here's to many many more to come!  Happy birthday Westley and Aria!!

Congratulations Newlyweds Vy & Chris!

I was honored to be a part of Vy and Chris's wedding last year in November!  I got the privilege to make their cupcake tower and cake for their big special day!  Vy wanted red velvet cupcakes filled with whipped cream cheese frosting and a few chocolate cupcakes for her hubby Chris!  The cupcakes are adorn with "I Do" toppers, and some edible pearls and mini fondant flowers.  The top cake is a a vanilla cake with mixed berries from Givral that I decorated with light pink fondant lace and a pearl border.  Her florist reserved me some flowers so I can decorate the cake on top and the cupcake tower.  I trimmed the tower with light pink ribbon as well.  The tower looked great but the couple looked even better!  It was such a happy and beautiful day, with so many new memories.  I wish you Vy and Chris a lifetime of love and happiness, and may your life be more beautiful than ever before!  Congratulations you guys!!

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Yang!

Congratulations to the newlyweds Jina and Jesse!!  I had the privilege of making a display cake for Jina and Jesse's wedding back in March last year!  She wanted a simple elegant ivory 3-tier display cake, but with a real edible piece of cake made into the bottom tier of the cake for their cake cutting!  The whole cake is covered in fondant and embroidered some icing on the bottom tier for a more vintage look.  The pearls on the first and last tier are also made of fondant with some pearl dust for an extra touch of detail.  The flowers on the cake are real, same goes for the ribbon on the second tier.  Congratulations to Jina and Jesse on your beautiful wedding, and I wish you many many years of love and happiness and I hope your life is sweeter than ever now that you guys are united as one!

Published in ACD Magazine!

I'm so excited to share with you all that my sweet daughter Lily's 1st birthday party and smash cake session got published in the January-February 2014 issue of the American Cake Decorating Magazine: The Art & Business of Sugar! It showcases the grand display cake that I made for her party, as well as all the other desserts I made for her special celebration!  Right when you open the first page, you see a thumbnail of Lily's cake smash photo, and then when you flip to page 12 and 13, you see the showcase for her party!  How amazing it is to be published in a real life magazine!  The editor who wrote this showcase just happened to stumble upon my blog and fell in love with Lily's birthday theme and party.  She contacted me and asked to do a feature on it and I was more than excited to say yes!  She shipped me a few magazines of this issue right after they were done printing!  I will definitely frame this.  Thank you to D. Park Photography for photographing her party, and for Mieng Saetia for photographing her cake smash session!  Also, special thank you to my husband Khoa for helping me with all her party plannings and for always supporting and believing in me.
