Fall into Deelite:)

It has been a while, I know. And in this day in age when we are all supposed to juggle a million and one things I will admit, I let my blog slip through the cracks. Sorry , a VERY BIG HUGE SORRY:(
Some of you who have followed me from day one have probably forgotten about me....:( sigh tears. But I understand, life goes on and things happen. So no hard feelings:) I hope you revisit this page. And if its your first time reading this, welcome and thank you for clicking my way.
 There have been loads of changes in my life. I'm a mommy of 2 lovely boys, I now really understand what BACK TO SCHOOL means for parents and blink my eyes yikes I gotta take that picture for our family Christmas card already.
Annnnnd ofcoarse do what I"ve always loved doing, spreading the sweet news of cake decorating one cake at a time.

When mid-autumn festival passes thats when I really feel like Fall has finally arrived. The wind changes here in HK, and the sun sets earlier. Its refreshing to have a seasonal change, I love it:)
This year we decided to do a lil something different and introduced our Mooncakes. At first, some of our regulars were a bit hesitant to try them but they were all pleasantly surprised:) It wasn't too sweet and the flavors were fresh and yummy. As some of you may have seen on our instragram, ppl tagged us on thier fave flavors. Pandan and Black Forest were the clear winners. So heres a congrats to Mr. Pandan and Miss. Black Forest Mooncake!!!
I start to crave for pumpkin as soon Fall clocks in as well. I have no idea how that happens. I think after being in this business for 12 years not only do my cakes and cookies look & taste like pumpkins, I too turn into a pumpkin. Even at home we start to use the oven more and put the summer salad menus and sorbets aside. I baked a yummy Pumpkin donut cake for my son to take for his school snack. Even he had a hand in it.

That I will share with you on my next post. And I promise it won't take 4 months or a year. I PROMISE I'll post it next week. :)
In the meantime here's what you can look forward to in October. Enjoy and thanks for taking the time to read this. I hope this was a good break for you.  it is equally fun for me to share a sliver of my life with you. Until NEXT WEEK:)
 Can I tempt you with these adorable mini Cookie bites. Mini Choco Bat, Pumpkin-Pumpkin, Butter , Butter Ghost  & Almont Hat cookies. Available Oct 1st onwards
And yes, they are ten times cuter in the pretty lil treat bag
 Cuteness overload, our rice krispy donut treats were a smash hit so we had ot put them on lolli sticks. Mini Donut RK donut lillipops.

Panda & Wombat Watercolor Wedding Cake

Yay spring is approaching! Though it may still be cold outside the later sunsets sure is getting me excited for the warmer weather and ofcoarse wedding season!!!!
We recently did wedding cake for a very special couple. The wedding was at the beautiful Hong Kong Country Club.  The couple designed thier very own wedding invitation with a characture of themselves : panda (bride) and a Wombat (groom) .  SOOOOOO CUTE:) We recreated their characture and made a cute wedding cake topper with it.
We also matched the colors of the cake with their invitation with more peachy tones as requested by the bride:)

Merry Christmas everyone!

We're in countdown mode. About 1 week  till xmas YAYAYAYAY!
I"m sure some of you are still scrambling for gifts. In the midst of the hussell and bussell, don't forget to take a breather and enjoy the holiday atmosphere, spirit and joy. I had to remind myself that 2 weeks ago when we were in the midst of the IBE cake and bakery expo. I literally had no time to breath between cakes, classes and prepping for the convention it was seriously eventful to say the least. Here are some great photos of the expo. As you can see our booth was really buzzing with sweet talent from many different artists and brands. 
We featured Kelmy, Satin Ice, Wilton, Icing Images, Lorann Oils, & Sugar Arts. We also had a great show of Master Artists from around the globe: David MaCarfrae (Royal Icing Master)from David Cakes, Kristina Rado (Royal Icing Master), Mike Terry ( Wafer Paper Master), Kathleen Lange ( Lambeth Method Master), Robert Haynes ( Sugar Flower Master). This year we highlighted the Year of the Royal icing so it was really great seeing different Royal Icing masters show case their interpretation of piping with Royal Icing. 
 Within our booth area we also had 3 workshop spaces in the back for people to take classes. 

 Here I am demonstrating Satin Ice fondant techniques
 David with is Royal Icing Smile:)

To give you a breather from the holiday buzz I thought I'd share a bit of entertainment.
Go grab you mulled wine or hot chocolate sit back relax and enjoy this Gingerbread Boy Cake video We hope this inspires and entertains you:)

Merry Christmas!!!

Star Wars Cake & My 4 Boys

Hi hi all, I hope your fall season has been off to a great start. Here in Hong Kong we're only feeling a bit of a cool breeze. Never the less, its nice to get that cozy feeling again. Your eyes are probably still popping out of your face because you think I have 4 boys. Noo noo nooo, I only have 2 ( 3 yr and 9 months) I have 2 nephews as well ( 4 yr & 10 months) They are all very close in age which is great when we get together. I have the privilege and joy of being their official Bday cake Mommy & Auntie. When it was just the 2 older boys it wasn't too bad. As soon as the 2 younger ones were born it was a game changer. It has been a very eventful year of bday parties and celebrations.
I call it my birthday cake marathon. In asia we celebrate the babies 100 day. So my marathon started in April when my bb son reached 100 days.
Here's the cake

Then 1 month later it was my son's birthday. Some of you may remember his Buzz lightyear cake.

Then I get a lil break and October was my Nephew's 4th Birthday Star Wars theme.
Here it is

December is bb Nephews 1st Brithday. Still figuring out what to do. Then I have my bb son's 1st birthday in Jan. and the Marathon is finished. In May the Marathon starts all over again.I take it all with great joy to be apart of my 4 boys milestones. They all grow up so fast. I often look at the previous cakes I"ve made for them and see how they have outgrown certain themes and stages in life. The 2 eldest are just active lil "ANGELS":) and the lil ones are cute as ever. Before you know it it'll be thier 18th birthday and they may not even want a cake.......Sadness. But never the less I will make them one. And one day even their wedding cake. Oh tears......:) Life can get so busy but it is when I make these cakes where I can take a step back and enjoy all my sweet blessings:)
Here are some of the boys previous cakes.

This was no ordinary bus cake. I put an electric bubble machine inside the cake so when the cake got pushed out, bubbles were coming out of the bus. Is that Cool or what....if I don't say so myself:P

This was Joshua's 1st birthday cake. He had a hawaiian Luau theme. This cake was absolutly HUGE! And if you look very closely, the cake was a rainbow cake on the inside as well. I really didn't plan for it to be so big. I had so much fun making all the little details we had to make a bigger cake to place all the animals and creatures.
Aloha and have a blessed week!

Our classes have been in full swing. We have revamped all of our popular workshops with new designs and techniques. Here are highlights from our new We Luv Cupcakes workshop. We first launched We Luv Cupcakes workshop in 2005. Yes, this workshop is 10 years old. Over the years we've changed the designs of the cupcakes to go with the latest trends and techniques. 
Our recipe taught has never changed.
Here's video to show you some highlights:)

Fall has officially kicked in and I feel a change in the air. SOOOOO happy for cooler weather:) Bye Bye humidity!!!!
 This past week I taught our first seasonal class- We Luv Cookies Halloween. 
 I just can't believe that Halloween is just a few weeks away.
