cake

remind me of PDP's ;)
i'm lovin' it!

dropped by kak shaja's blog tadi, found her entry on how to save on wedding cake. seriously, sangat membantu esp for those with no idea on cake pricing, like me ;) i didnt know it could cost a bomb hehehe!

since we'll have acara memotong kek for bertandang, i'd love my home reception to be as casual & homey as possible. no potong kek pun ok, just tiers of cakeballs or cuppies. if mum still insist, i might opt for kak shaja's great tip - one tier cake & sewa je cake stand ...(the sample she posted is real classy...)

yup, cake can be pricey... one kilo fondant pun can cause you hundreds- depends on the designs of course.. but the link to shaja's is really useful.. i just hope that i get to learn to do fondant icing on time before my wedding... hehe.

or else- buttercream & fresh flowers will also do.. ;) i have a fren in penang who's doing a home- based cake biz. if u want her contact, let me know la kot2 u wanna get urself familiar with the cake pricing & stuffs.. :)

if u want a plain fondant like this sgt senang k..ehheeh..fondant ade jual yg ready made.cara nak evenkan the fondant u can learn from utube..the sugarpaste flowers seme ade jual readymade kt kedai kek..sorry i mmg ambitious.hahaha

diah! sangat betul... :D kalau i x berjaya buat sendi fondant tu, harus la beli ready made saje & tepek aje atas cake kan? :P

ps/ fondant bole tepek atas pound cakes (butter cakes/ fruitcakes as it's heavy- unlike sponges or chiffon cakes) otherwise- the fondant bole tenggelam.. ;)
