It was Singapore's birthday last Thursday. While getting ready to go to mum's place to watch fireworks, I received a text msg from an unfamiliar number.
The correspondences went somthing like this:
She: Murnie, do you take orders for cuppies? By the way, do you know me?
Me: Erm .. who is that?
She: It is me Rohani from Woodsville. So do you take orders?
Me: How did you know about the cuppies?
She: I read your blog .. you gave me your blog addy the last time remember?!
Hmm .. and so I tried to reflect when was the last I got in touch with her .. it must have been some time early last year and wow, my schoolmate still reads my blog! Thanks Rohani!
That evening, after much a thinking, I replied to her msg and said YES to her order! I told the lovelies in my life about the order and after much encouragement from them, I agreed to it! They knew that this was what I had wanted to do badly .. they knew my love for baking big time!
Rohani, my secondary schoolmate, will be collecting the cupcakes later today and I hope she will be happy with the end result. Rohani left the number of cuppies and creativity to me. So, I made her 16 pcs of chocolate cupcakes with plain white icing and toppers, then put it in a transparent box trimmed with silver ribbons. OH ya, the pink shredded stuff that are placed in between the cupcakes are edible too!
Rohani had placed orders for the cupcakes especially for her friend's engagement .. aww .. sweet isn't she??
I really hope the recipient too will be elated to receive the cupcakes later!
The other time, I also showed pictures of cupcakes that I made for Tihani's birthday to the security officer at work, and then he went "If you are gonna make them cuppies, could you make some for me."
I said "Oh sure, I'll make some for you and you go surprise your fiancee with it". He liked the idea.
These are what I made for the security officer specially for his fiancee. Chocolate cake with lavendar coloured icing and toppers! I hope the fiancee is smitten by his sweetness and his little surprise!
Thank you Rohani and Azhar and Thanks Allah for giving me this opportunity! Is this a start to a mini business that I have always dreamt of?? I really hope it is!
