A tribute to Simply Chantique's Yummilicious Chocolate Moist Cakes

These are our infamous Chocolate Moist Cakes, literally not less than 30 pieces were sold monthly. What's more, it's only RM35 per kg! So what's so special about them when most bakers claim to have their own version of the 'best' chocolate moist cake ever hehehe.. Will I be considered 'vain' if I were to claim the same thing? Nope, I don't have the 'heart' to claim so, let the sales speak for themselves hihihi..

I have one regular customer; Azah of Universiti Malaysia Sabah, who after having tasted the cakes for the first time, been ordering them for herself as well as for her colleagues for quite some time now. I'm not talking about 1 or 2 pieces, it's 20 pieces & above at once! ekekeke thank you so much for your support dear.

There's another childhood friend of mine; Cecil who ordered the cakes for the 1st time during Hari Raya Aidilfitri this year, had ordered them again all the way from Lahad Datu that we had to deliver them via a courier service provided by the local bus. Vavavoom!! Here's the evidence;
.. the mini promo chocolate moist cakes (RM10/700g) ready to be sealed..

..all packed & ready to board the bus!

Here are the RM35 version of the Chocolote Moist Cake as ordered by our customers; these three pieces of CMC were ordered by my sister's colleague who's name I carelessly forgot hehehe.. please forgive my 'matured' memory.

Another birthday cake ordered by Klinik Desa Petagas;

Like what I've mentioned just now, I dare not say that we have the best Chocolate Moist Cake.. but I dare say that ours had been tried & tested & each is made with love. That's why it's easy to fall in love with. Cheerio!

Simply Chantique is into Cheesecakes!!

The above might look so overated.. when everybody around us has been doing it for ages, but who cares?! We are proud of our cheesecakes & they make us feel good, happy, et cetera.. et cetera hehehehe in Malay we've a saying for that; "Masuk bakul, angkat sendiri" aka total bragging! Muahahaha.. I mean you have to feel good in order to make others around you feel the same right?? Right??

Okay enough about us, let's get back to the original topic; CHEESECAKES! We had been contemplating whether to 'launch' our version of them or not, but due to high demand (ehem.. I'm so vain ekekeke) & thanks to the constant & persistent support by my dear friend & regular customer; Titien Marlina, we have finally decided to 'show-off' our cheesecakes! So here are the oreo & blueberry cheesecakes ordered by her as our 'taster' hehehe.. Thank you so much dear friend, I still owe you your blueberry chocolate cake!

The simply mouth watering oreo cheesecakes with fresh cream topping,

.. and here's the blueberry cheesecake also covered in fresh cream, simply delectable!

Okay to end this entry for now, I just can't help but to quote Titien's text message; "Natttttt ( I even counted the 't's hehehehe) gi** o ur cakes.. sadapppp (again I counted the 'p's) ada fight Sec*** Rec***.. ko tau abis kopak cake stu olh my kids, both drng nak rasa..kessadapannnnnn (there are 6 'n's hehehe).. mmg hantu cheese ponnnn (this time there are 4 'n's)...haha.. tq..tq.. very much geng.."

Lovely Lilac Cupcakes as Door Gifts for Sophie's Wedding

Oh my.. it's been exactly two months today since my sister's wedding. They had moved to a new & nicer place, more suitable for them to venture into a new life as a wedded couple (despite the incident with the neighbor hehehe.. *wink* *wink*). I'm still coming to term with Sophie not being always 'available' whenever we feel like having our girls' day out.. but life has to go on.

Hehehehe.. come on! It's supposed to be a joyous occasion, my baby sister has found her true love;Nazrul, my new brother in-law. Nevertheless, I just can't help being melancholic some time.. Okay, enough! Now I'm in the middle of baking cakes for a birthday party tomorrow. Just have to squeeze in some updating job for our blog otherwise I'll keep on procrastinating and my oh my.. I've procrastinated a two-month worth of jobs that we'd completed! Please forgive us here at Simply Chantique's, especially to our customers who have been patiently waiting for the updates on their order(s). Hugs & kisses XOXO!

Well back to my sister, she told me that her colleagues had been asking for their share of the wedding door gifts (in which they couldn't attend in the first place). So, being supportive of her big sis' business hehehehe... she ordered these chocolate moist cupcakes in her fave color; lilac for them. Hope she's happy with the outcome.. well she had to be! I am, after all, her big sister hahahaha!

It's confirmed; Simply Chantique's Carrot Walnut Cake is a hit!

Hahahahaha... just feel like bragging tonight. I guess a small dose of vanity won't hurt right? Right? Right? ekekekeke.. it just feels good when customers 'crave' for our cakes or cupcakes. In the case of JKNS Penampang, they were celebrating November birthdays & chose to order, for the countless number of time; our scrumptious, healthy & delicious Carrot Walnut cake with Cream Cheese topping. Yeayyy! Wirdi was quoted saying; it's more delicious than the one at S****t R*c***.. Wowwee.. please don't sue me but that just feels sooo gooooodddd... so good! Hehehehe.. Thank you so much, it's quite an achievement for Simply Chantique's, to be compared with an established eatery.

Here it is... Thanks a zillion!

who would have thought that baby carrots make a unique deco on my cake!

November Birthdays for Staff at Bank Rakyat, Likas.

It's a trend nowadays I guess, to celebrate a collective birthdays of staff at work, and that's good! It shows just how valuable manpower is as an asset in ensuring the productivity of any workplace regardless of the nature of work involved. Hehehe.. I started off this posting in a serious mode but it's true. Too often most employers forgot to appreciate their employees. It's not that difficult really, a simple 'thank you' would do. A dinner party is welcome hehehehe...

Ok, these cakes were ordered by Yanni of Bank Rakyat, Likas to celebrate the birthdays of staff who were born in November (sorry for the late posting; GUILTY of major busy-ness hiii...). A kilo each of fresh strawberry cake & yam cake. Yanni also happens to be the younger sis of our previous customer; Anna. Thank you so much Yanni, hope all of you had a blast!

The mouth watering strawberry fresh cream filling.. with big chunks of strawberries added.

my oh my...

and of course, what's a fresh fruit cake without fresh fruit topping

..and now the yam cake, with chunks of yam in the filling.. it's the REAL deal darling..hehehe

Happy Birthday Lorelai!

It's a Small World
By Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman (Song for the infamous Disney Theme Park Ride)

It's a world of laughter,
A world of tears.
It's a world of hopes,
And a world of fears.
There's so much that we share,
That it's time we're aware,
It's a small world after all.

It's a small world after all.
It's a small world after all.
It's a small world after all.
It's a small, small world.

There is just one moon,
And one golden sun.
And a smile means,
Friendship to every one.
Though the mountains divide,
And the oceans are wide,
It's a small world after all.
(Repeat chorus)

Oh.. please forgive me but I just feel like singing this song today hehehe.. I guess this particular order of Brenda really reminds me of this song.

Brenda is my friend; Jay's colleague. We discussed, settled everything then came the day for her to pickup the cake. She asked her husband to do it, husband asked from whom? She mentioned my name. He asked her to double check if it's the correct name. She did..and it's confirmed= Joy, Brenda's husband was my classmate in secondary school! Hehehehe it's a small world after all. Thank you so much Brenda & I hope dear Lorelai enjoyed this. Happy Birthday little Barbie!

Here's the chocolate blueberry cake with fresh cream topping & of course sweet Lorelai's pic;

..and here are the chocolate moist blueberry cupcakes with blueberry cream topping

..with the Barbies added

.. and individually packed in pretty pink!

A Very Happy Barbie-Birthday for Nadeera Kamellia

"Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother."
-- Lin Yutang

I may not be a mother myself, not yet at the moment at least, but ever since we first started our business more than a year ago, we've been receiving numerous orders from mothers for their children's birthday and my.. how I admire them for knowing every bit and detail of what their kids would love to see on the cakes or cupcakes. As for the flavor, it's mummy's choice all the way hehehehe...

The same is the case for this particular order by Baizura of Luyang. The pink Barbie cake was for her daughter; Nadeera Kamellia's 6th Birthday. She wanted it to be exactly like the one I'd made before with some minor adjustments. The base was yam cake. She had also ordered pandan & orange cupcakes for her dear daughter. They were supposed to be decorated with edible images of Barbie but it was such a short notice so I didn't get the chance to order. So sorry for that :-(

But worry no more ladies & gentleman, my latest 'secret gadget' will be arriving soon... hehehehehe.. not really a secret there. Baizura, thank you so much for the order & I hope Nadeera loved the cake and cupcakes. Happy Birthday darling!

..and of course here are the cupcakes in orange & green

A 3-tier Wedding Cakes with 3 Different Flavors for Anna

It was a hectic week for us at Simply Chantique's but we just couldn't resist wedding cakes! That's our weakness.. GUILTY! hehehe...

Okay this time we received the order from Anna of Liasara Restaurant in Likas for her cousin's wedding in King Fisher. She ordered a 3-tier cakes with different flavor for every tier; bottom tier = yam cake, middle tier = chocolate blueberry and the top tier = our delicious steamed fruit cake. The theme colors were baby blue and pink, a pretty combination.

Anna had also ordered 50 pieces of L size chocolate moist cupcakes individually packed, in the same colors. Thank you so much Anna and wait for our latest update on out business proposition hehehehe.. yippie!!

We prefer an unconventional method in decorating our cakes. Afterall they are homemade hehehe... so why should they be perfect looking right? It's the taste that counts..

Here are the cupcakes
