happy birthday mui mui!

July 31st, 2015

siu momo is turning 8 today!!  i can’t believe how time has passed by so quickly!  wasn’t she just 1 not long ago!? *smile*

we had a small “foxy” party at the pottery studio, thanks to the help of the jei jei who runs the studio.  we arrived earlier to set up the snacks and the decoration – i got a set of fox party printouts from etsy and made the birthday bunting and the cupcake wrappers.  it was with reference to this fox that i designed the birthday cake.  i also made a couple origami balls with some wrapping paper i have left and hung them up near the working bench.  di di was actually more excited than siu momo at the party and he has been a very good boy throughout…




siu momo invited her best friends from school and the girls helped her blow out the candles.  then we started to make the cermaic foxes and after almost one hour all foxes were born and lined up!



we had a wonderful afternoon surrounded by good friends.  siu momo, ma-ma wishes you all the happiness and good healthy, and may you always live in the love of god and be kind and brave.  you are a big girl of 8 now, but no matter how old you are, you will always be ma-ma’s little girl.  love you, mui.

for her party

July 30th, 2015

the theme for her party this year is fox, so i made some “foxy” cookies and cupcakes…


designed and made this cake – worked on the fondant pieces for the entire week.  i like the “foxy” cookie in the centre though it was quite a lot of work.  the cake was almond chiffon layers with dark cherry fillings and strawberry swiss meringue buttercream…
