This is for Izrin's birthday. I had originally asked Jaah to decide on the brand and model... no outcome from there, haha... it was either another Chanel or an LV. I think most people voted for an LV bag, besides, it's good to have another brand. I wanted to make a multicolore monogram at first, and it was a big bag - the Speedy City bag. I changed my plan due to short supply of tall large cake box (yup, did my purchasing rather last minute) and I didn't really want to make a miniature of the original bag. So changed to this dainty little bag - A Rodeo Drive in Amarante. Okay What colour is this? I've search the web and the information gotten was cherry plum red that looks like black. With a tinge of purple.
It's for the candle. I don't suppose anyone would want to poke the candle onto the handbag.
I was organizing my pictures for blog update and noticed that I don't have picture of this full box of cupcakes! Ahh... How can? So I recall... I must be too sleepy the night before and thought that I have already taken all the pictures necessary the night before that night... anyways, Jeannie, I hope you have some :p
So, I only have TTB and friends, the flowers were not in my album, but you've seen them all, only this time they were in violet colour, a colour I've not used for a while. For the kids, there was original quite a few "branded" or "celebrity" cartoon character, but couldn't manage. So making appearance were TTB and little blue baby elephant... with 2 new friends.

I got a call from Jiin, a friend of Jeannie, earlier this week for a box of cupcakes to celebrate her daughter's one year birthday. The request after Jiin has gone through the blog was TTB present, marshmallow flowers and number 1 figurine. Since she requested for pink and blue marshmallow flowers, I've made this box a pink and blue theme. However, TTB was not holding the present because cupcake TTBs are too tiny (trust me!) and I wasn't able to craft a present that is detailed enough for TTB to hold.
Not many closed up shot taken, was a bit sleepy after completing the box of cuppie cakes. :)

Received Jacqueline's email about two weeks ago and to my relief, this is not for during my hectic week. After a few discussions on what should be the dessert for the party of her auntie's birthday party, it has been decided that it shall be cupcakes.
As for the miniatures, they encompass her auntie's hobbies and I supposed since she love cooking, these following were requested:
Wok, "chahn" (spatula), knife and a cloth (the white thing at the other end)
Going on to the gambling stuff...
Lottery ticket and the number balls - why Magnum? That's the "sample" mum gave me haha... And why 1410? It's today's date. Hey, if anyone buy this number and win, don't forget to "contribute" back to TeaRoom ;)
Here's the full box, 8 medium cupcakes plus 18 minis, which Jacqueline will be arranging out on the table
This is the carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, the decoration for the carrot cupcakes are all carrots. Haha... doing the easy way since there was not enough time, and sleep.
The chocolate cupcakes with dark chocolate cream. Also made some with the ladybird design. Got quite a few new fans for the ladybird the other night.

I like the back of the car better. Overall feedback from customer was bad - the base cake was too dry and crumbly, the Ferrari didn't look like one which is supposed to be sleek and sexy. He said maybe next time don't do car. Hmm... there will be a next time? ;)
So much room for improvements, hope to do another one soon again. I had some "technical" issue making the cake thin and slim for the front of the car. Perhaps a larger cake will be easier? I didn't had much time to take orders last week, therefore this car is only an 8 inches one.
I found that "floorboard" was the easiest way to cover the cake after I have placed the car on the base cake. And thanks to Mama Min for the class on making these (though I've actually made individual pieces of "wood").
As the logos did not look good with just the silver paint, I have used silver icing to pipe the wordings on, this case it has the more 3D effect. The word "California" was written with piped icing also.
