20th of November 2011 ~ Another lovely date! Once again our cakes traveled far, by road, all the way to Ranau for Nazri & Noreen's engagement day.
Luckily both cakes were single tiered fondant-covered. So the possibility of them getting damaged 'on the road' was quite low unless intended.. hehehehe..
Noreen had ordered two cakes for their hantaran. The first one was a kilo of round vanilla butter cake with strawberry filling. The theme color for this cake was supposed to be light yellow with black damask decorations. But instead of light yellow, the color came out very bright instead! Hehehehe.. forgive me Noreen.. apparently the color had 'matured' overnight. It was light before but cake decorators out there would know that, the secret to get bright & dark colored fondant, is to mix the color at least a day before using & let it 'rest' overnight for the color to develop.
In saying that, I never thought the color would decide to 'show off' that much. Could be to share Noreen & Nazri's happiness hehehehe...
The next cake was a kilo of square classic fruit cake, covered in off white fondant and pastel green ribbon. Satin pink roses were arranged around the cake with their initials on. The quilt like effect was achieved by using embosser.
Noreen was also kind enough to share with us some of her lovely engagement pics. Congratulations Noreen, even though it's already very late hehehe..
Well tomorrow we'll be flying again, this time to Bangi for a Mara sports meet. It's been a while since my last badminton & netball tournaments so hope I still have that agility, accuracy, stamina and what not. Otherwise... errr does anyone know the nearest shopping complexes please??!!
