Happy B'day Raphaelle

All to the glory of GOD

Okay.. before I’m starting bla..bla..bla.. Pls, Let me to say “SORRY” ‘cos it’s quite late to post this story… Thanks GOD…Finally I can post it..

====Rolling....ACTION


Time goes so fast…second by second.. minute by minute.. hour by hour.. day by day.. week by week.. month by month.. couldn’t feel it…it has been a year since I delivered her…


She has colored our lives…I never Imaged before there are a lot of funs and joys when the little one come into our lives…If I think back about this…when I was a kid…a teenager.. A mature woman…how did I meet my hubby? ***he..he..he..** :D (It’s funny… and can’t tell you on this section…may be I have a chance to tell you about it... J J ) … got married… pregnant… then she arrived in this world in perfect condition... more I think... more I praise HIM.. HE is SO AMAZING…


Now she is one year girl…she is not a baby anymore… She grew too quick… but she is still a baby for me...Thanks GOD that it’s almost 100% she was with me…I saw her day by day… how did she grow… there will be something new that we will explore together… I’m sure that there will be so many funs in future …as the time goes by…


Okay…let’s finish…bla..bla…

Now is time to talk about Raphaelle’s 1st B’day Cake.


Baking and Decorating Time :


It’s a hardest cake which I ever made til now…


I didn’t have enough sleep to make and decorate it.. **hua.. so sleepy** It took a few days to finish all cakes…I started to bake them on Wednesday… Whole day I baked them… and started to decorate them on Thursday night after my hubby came from his work… it’s about 11.00 pm…Since I couldn’t decorate it on day times ‘cos Raphaelle wanted more attentions and times to play with her..


On the 1st night….I put my Ipod on my ears and started my job… I stayed a wake til 6.00 am.. to finish 1st cake and 2nd cake… it’s not bad… not really tiring…


On the 2nd night…again with my Ipod … It’s a hard night for me… I needed to finish decorating the teddy bear… Since I’m not used to with the piping…wow it’s a hard job.. my right hard was very sore…mostly on fingers.. it likes when you work hard or lift up a lot of heavy things…when finish.. all of your bodies feel sore, don’t they.. Can you image it? So same like my right hand and fingers… til I couldn’t press any more the piping bag…wow it’s so bad.. huhuhu… I finished decorating the teddy bear and stacked it on the 2nd cake.. I was not really happy with the result of teddy bear… I thought It didn’t look as good as 1st one (Pls, compare it by yourself …Pls, see my posting last month) … but I couldn’t anything else…I was too tired.. L …there was a fly…it companied me for 2 nights…J…it followed me wherever I went…when I went to kitchen.. it followed me.. when I went to dining room where I decorated my cakes.. it followed me too..he..he.. J J it’s a faithful fly..hua..hua.. J J … I finished til 7.00 am…



Let’s talk about cakes now :

the 1st cake was “3 layers Taiwanese Sponge Cakes with Mango filling” (I took the recipe from Ine J thanks Ine J)… It covered by marzipan and plastic Icing…decorated by swags and ribbons… Ahaa…Remember my posting last month about “Joined and Held Together by Love”.. As you can see on the pic…there is a electric pasta maker...maybe you are a little curious…what is the relation between a electric pasta maker with my baking hobby… I’ll tell you what is the relation between them.. J…the electric pasta maker helps me a lot on swags and ribbons.. I needed same thickness for every swags and ribbons….and very..very thin…as a fabric….So now you knew what is the function that electric pasta maker for me…he..he.. even my hubby was very confuse when I asked to buy me a electric pasta maker…


The 2nd cake was “2 layers Strawberry Chiffon Cakes with Chocolate Mousse Filling”… It covered by buttercream and plastic Icing … I planned to write on 2nd cake…but couldn’t do it anymore…my right hand and fingers were too sore.. couldn’t press the piping bag anymore.. so I just decorated with some blossom flowers… wasn’t it cute?? J

The 3rd cake was “A Chocolate Mud Cake”…It covered by Buttercream… and the number 1.. it was made by cookie…covered by buttercream and plastic icing…


Thanks God…Everything were finished on schedule…


Party Time….Come on…sing with me…Happy Birthday to Raphaelle 2x.. Happy Birthday 3x Raphaelle…Hip hip ..horay.. hip hip.. horay


It was a hot day…I worried about my cakes…Pls, God they won’t me… Jef helped me to carried and held the cake when I delivered it on the place… and …when I like to park the car.. forgot to hit the brake.. just directly moved the gear to “P”.. wow.. my car jumped and jef was shocked and hey.. what have you done?.. You will cry if the cakes is broken.. he told me.. Sorry.. I forgot to hit the brake.. J


He went inside and I parked my car…


When I went inside and liked to check where did they put my cake……OH.OH…OH NO L one of the staff dropped some tomato sauces on the cake……OOOOOHHHHH NNNNOOO.. huhuhu…I went outside to see my friend and told her about that… My friend said maybe it’s not at front…maybe just at the back….she went inside to check it and told me that the cake is alright.. it’s just at the back…they tried to clean it up… I went home and didn’t see again my cake…

It’s a time to cut the cake and I found out… there were some sauces left on cake.. and my friend tried to clean that again.. btw…just forget about it…


As I told you that it was a hot day…the buttercream started to

melted…but Thanks GOD that It stayed on good condition til we cut the cake…just finished cut the cake.. and I didn’t notice that number “1” collapsed… the owner showed it to Raphaelle…

The buttercream on number “1” cookie melted and made it soft.. that’s why number “1” collapsed…but it’s alright ‘cos we already took pics…



Those are all my story…too long, aren’t they?....


Btw… Pls, advise me how to decorate with piping, so your hand and fingers are not sore…. Or maybe just because I’m not used to ….


Thanks and Enjoy to read…


Blessings,
