how amazing and beautiful are these origami paper lamps.  i want to try making my own confetti.

absolutely out of energy these days, with mr candlelight and myself down with flu and helper jei jei in hospital with a gall bladder infection.  we are all in need of some positive energy.

birthday cake for yiu yiu

September 15th, 2014

had the opportunity to help molly make this cake for beryl‘s sister, yiu yiu.  learned from last time’s experience, it was a much swifter process this time – making the vegan, gluten free and dairy and egg free chocolate almond cake…

 

i also managed to make the vegan “buttercream” less sweet this time.  i have had my eyes on this bunny kid’s toothbrush set for a while from the mtr shop, thinking of using the lid of the set as a cake/cupcake topper.  luckily they were still selling it and it made a lovely topper for yiu yiu’s cake…

 

as always i had some of the frosting left and whipped these quick vanilla cupcakes up on saturday afternoon as snacks for siu momo and di di, decorated with some wafer paper flowers i found at the supermarket…

happy birthday to yiu yiu once again, and best wishes to my friend and great mom molly!
