Assalamualaikum and a Big HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012 to you!!!

My oh my, how the days past us by. And it's already a brand new year today. 2011 had been good, very sweet for us and we're hoping and praying that 2012 has even more goodies in store for us.

How about you? I hope everything went well in 2011. Even if it didn't look too good, like I always tell my friends, someday, sometime from now, you'll be in a better place where you'll be saying the same thing I'm saying today - If the worst didn't happen, I won't be here, enjoying today. So I've learnt that nothing is bad or good, it's how you see it and go through it. So alhamdulillah for Allah's guidance.

Having said that, we've been busy closing the Year 2011 on a sweet note.

We also had our Dessert Class yesterday with Kella Zakaria. Hope you'll be making lots of these, Kella, and who knows where these sweet things might take you... We'll see you next month with other sweet things ok. For those who want to learn all these Dessert Cakes or Pastries, call 013-3554399 for inquiries or booking.

We told you something was going to happen on Wednesday yeah..

Well, we had Karangkraf shooting our pastries for their RASA Magazine ;)). They wanted 15 types of pastries themed Herbs & Spices to be featured for their March 2012 issue. So here are some them  photo that I manage to snap before the food vanished into thin air, ahaksss! We made, among others,  Rustic Chicken Pie, Rustic Apple Pie, Vegetarian Bruschetta, Sausage Rolls, Onion Buns, Ginger Cake, Prune Cake with Caramel Sauce and lots more. If you want the recipes for our pastries, wait for RASA March 2012. You can try them and enjoy them with your families.

To my dear friends and family who dropped by to show us your support, love you all!!
