today i had the chance to play around with swiss meringue buttercream icing, and frankly, it sucks. well, i suck. it was too soft? nah, too heavy? oh i don't know. something is just off. oh but the taste is heavenly! nyaman. i am going to try it again though. it is said to be the best icing there is.

and i can't decide whether i like my icing sickeningly sweet or subtlety sweet. whether i like it gritty or smooth.

i haven't got the chance to try out fondant. i've been reading reviews that it doesn't taste as good as it looks. i should try getting those packaged fondant. expensive ba~

i've been waking up early lately. maybe it's all this sugar rush. maybe. so i went to leApple again to search for meringue powder. i thought they'd might be cheaper than wasting eggs. but no, too expensive, especially when i have no job at the moment. lol.

anyhoo, honey joys...

...just because i have nothing to do. lol.

i still had a lot of time to spare, so i thought i'd try some royal icing. well, well, well... i think this icing looks better from the buttercream ones. i don't know about the taste though. puasa kali ah. lol.

i could feel my confidence being quickly washed away by people.

i'm trying to stay positive. stay positive, woman! you can't please everyone.

anyhow, i was feeling really paranoid that i messaged the cousin to ask how the cupcakes was. her response was sweet. i don't know if she was just being polite and making me feel better but i worked. lol.

of course my cupcakes are not some professional local bakery's.

"ada cupcakes!"
"oh really!"
"i made it."

this journey isn't so sweet at the moment.

anyhow, i made extras. wanna buy them from me? lol.

i was gonna bake a cake for the dad but the sister thought it would be better if i just did cupcakes. which i did. normal sized ones. lol. so with the help of the sister, we made 48 cupcakes. lol. this time, we don't have to buy them! lol.

no, that's not the total 48 cupcakes. lol. the other were put on a different tray and oh, it's such a good feeling when you know the kids loved them! the cream was too sweet though. will need to adjust that soon.

and for the cake i want to bake, i'll just bake a cake for the friend who's birthday is up in a few days. lol.

oh and below is my personal favorite cupcake. done by me for me. lol. i was experimenting on stuff and i loved how it turned out to be!

i am going to try and use royal icing and fondant next. mhmm, maybe fondant for the friend's cake! oh. wouldn't that be nice!

oh and we made sugar cookies too because the sister just loves them!

this evening, the sisters had their boys over so i made them decorate their own cupcake. daus with the pink one. marul with the blue bitten one. he took a bite faster than i can say, "let's take a picture". lol. princess posing with hers. eva's two tone cupcake and my white one! pinkie didn't feel like decorating much today.

i went to LeApple Bakery with the mom and princess to get stuff for my new interest. it felt good to have a mom who's supportive. lol. i've got myself a new hand mixer and a piping bag. i wanted to get the pre-made fondant but thought, it was too expensive. lol.

so with the new piping bag in hand, i've revamped my mini-cupcakes.

and for a beginner enthusiast, i can't help but say... i'm doing good. lol. yes, let me dwell in my own wishful glory. oh i also made a not-bad-but-kinda-ugly chocolate chip cookie. i swear, it tastes better than it looks. i have people with good testimonials. ask yaya or fatin. and if they're lying... i'll... i'll... nah, i don't think they are. lol.

want to try some? lol. but if you like them, you're gonna have to buy them... hehe.

oh, by the way, it's the dad's second birthday (yes, he get's two birthdays in a year) today! let's see what i'll be making for him later. lol.

i've always been doted on sweet stuff. like good cakes, good cookies, good chocolate and especially good candies.

and so, after a night of having nothing to do. i put aside my computer and went down stairs to antam bake. a mixture of this, a mixture of that and voila, a disaster.

but i tried again the next day, and i have to say... it's EDIBLE! yayy! and it's pretty too. my first cupcake ever!

it makes me even more happy when the man asked if it was possible to cover everything with cream. oh yes, he LOVED my cream. lol.

this is my journal for my sweet journey.
