Responsibility and Challenge : Movie Themed Cupcakes

Talking about responsibility.. I think that's what determines ones are mature or not. Another lesson learned this week.. I was asked to join my seniors' band (the cardiology residents) in the gathering night, as the keyboardist in their already established band. Long story short, needed a keyboard and I didn't have it so I decided to "rent" from my bestie who owns a studio. She gave me a more-than-I-need  digital stage piano --" with its specific equipments and I was beyond happy to be able to perform with that.. But my bad, because of the chaos and the late-running schedule that night, we lost the piano stand :( so I then had to buy a new one for her, but that's not the point, the point is how I couldn't take care of the things that had been entrusted to me. So.. Noted! I really have to get rid of my carelessness that has gotten me into trouble for so many times. A resolution it is! Anyway, the performance went quite well, for an amateur like me. Last time I was in a band was about 2 years ago and it felt good to be in the studio again;) 

Another highlight of the week is a special requested decorated cupcakes order from my sister's friend who wanted a movie-themed cupcakes for her boyfriend who kinda works in the film-making industry, she specifically requested a pair of clippers, and the rest was up to us. So here you go! The movie themed decorated cupcakes special for dear Putri and Jaka. Quite pleased with the result ;)

Happy Birthday my Best Man :)

Happiest birthday, dear Daddy! 50, it is. Time flies.. as the grays on your hair and those tiny little wrinkles on the corner of your eyes are not ashamed anymore to show themselves ;') But I always remember that warm smile that never ever fades since the first time I can recognize a smile. I sincerely hope it stays on forever. I hope u'll be around looong long time to see me become somebody. I promise I'll make you proud :') We love you daddy!

 Aand.. A little cupcakes update :) Here's another order: Anniversary themed rainbow cupcakes.

Romantic Avenue

I believe any girl will melt hearing this song... I literally blushed the first time I really listened to the lyrics ;p

Everything that happens in our life is temporary, and whether it's good of bad, it's gonna be a memory someday. And I don't wanna keep bad memories, I'd like to reframe them as good ones. So it's time I thank you, thank you for ever being there for me during the best and worst times. It was a wonderful journey. Don't cry because it's over, but smile, because it happened :)

A berry busy week! Fyuh! Having to attend a 5-day Personality Improvement Training conducted by the faculty for 5 days straight (tomorrow's the last day, thankfully) from 8 a.m to 3 p.m. Meet so many new friends :) Plus the (alhamdulillah) flooding cupcakes order and wedding invitations and many other things.. But I'm happy, so a little bit tiredness doesn't count ;)

Here are some of the orders this week : Rainbow-decorated rainbow cupcakes and another birthday theme cupcakes! Sorry I have to reject some orders because me and my sissy are both busy this week :(

Thinking about a name for our cupcakes little 'company' hehehe I'm thinking about "Cupcacious", isn't that cute? what do you think? :D

The Flood Song

Went to Jakarta this weekend and met my lovely nieces Baby Lana, Sidi and Raki. I was kinda fed up with malls and not really in the mood of shopping, so my trip this time was dedicated for family time. So happy when I got near them cause they seemed happy near me too :p I have this kinda bond with children because I don't have to pretend when I interact with them and they don't judge. They purely see you based on who you are and how you treat them. If you love them, they love you back. You treat them wrong, they won't even get near you. It's a quality you hardly find in adults. The sincerity:) And to see their laughter, priceless!

And with each day passes and each prayer everyday, I grow more and more sure about one thing. That this is the answer He gave me:) I have done everything, but nothing can fix the broken mirror. So.. goodbye, past. I'm so welcoming a new chapter of my life now. And as much as I have all the reasons to hate, I don't. I guess it's a good sign too. Though I admit I chose to avoid things that can remind. But it's an ongoing process. I know someday I won't feel it so sickening anymore. Still waiting for the rainbow!

Pastel Roses

Got our second decorated cupcakes order :) This time the requested theme was "romantic birthday". I got a little bit better in working with fondants and buttercream, thanks to all the youtube tutorial! So my sister made 18 cupcakes consisting of 3 flavors, our best seller red velvet, nutella, and our newest babies: cookies and cream cupcakes :) I experimented with pastel colours and some birthday-ish shape for the fondant. Working with fondant can be really challenging because it's so sensitive to moisture, it becomes sticky when meeting the heat of your hands and my hyperhydrosis isn't helping me either! But with some determination I managed to nail it. So here you go! Our amateur decorated cupcakes :)

And a little update on my personal life, next week I'm going back to school! There will be some orientation activity and don't know if I'm ready for all the school stuffs, but hey I'm pretty excited! Hopefully in between the school schedule I'll still be able to make cupcakes cause it makes me happy :D 

So that's it readers, till the next post! ;)
