Pertunangan Firdaus & Sallyna

On 1st Nov I went to Klang for my cousin, Firdaus engagement day. I’ve made for him two hantaran that are cuppies & muffin in a basket. Here, I want to introduce my new gift box for cuppies that is very suitable for hantaran or any special gift.

The gift box is matching with the theme color of the engagement that is brown & gold. Since the box have more brown color, I just use yellow & red for the cuppies so that it looks attractive. The box have 12 holes to hold the cuppies… it looks very neat and stay nicely in the window box.

The second hantaran, I make heart shape muffins and put it in a basket. Actually I’m not really creative in decorating gift basket, that’s why it’s just come out very plain. But, don’t worry I shall not do it for my customer… all enquiries about muffins gift basket I will forward to AZ Gift Basket. Millie is the expert in gift basket & such.

First birthday bash

It’s been 2 months since I temporary close for orders, I’ve never make any cuppies. It’s quite challenging for me to get back on track and produce new and fresh ideas in cuppies decoration.

For the last 2 weeks I’ve received 2 orders for kids first birthday bash. Well, the customer is someone that I recently close to. I know Emirilda from PBS (Peoplepreneur Business School) and quite close to her since I need her advice and help on my business proposal preparation.

The first order is for her nephew, Daniyal Rizq Aryan…wow! what a wonderful name. Can you imagine how teachers in the future have to pronounce name for all the pupils in class? hahaha…lucky I’m not a teacher. Even my own kids also I put their name as unique as possible and it make others hard to pronounce it and even wrongly pronounce. I’m OK with that cause it’s my fault too…hehehe…

OK, back to the cuppies that I made…the customer request a LION theme with orange and red as the theme color. I used an orange color soufle cup which match with the requested theme. Let’s look at my design below :

The second order is for her own son, Wan Rayyan Haziq, also a marvellous name. She requested a football theme with MU flag because she planned to have football team birthday bash (over you!). That’s makes me think what should I planned for Irisya first birthday bash this coming Dec….emmm….

Well, let’s look at my second design below :

I really hope they like it for my both design & of course the taste…that is more important than everything else, right!

I’m really sorry to Ema cause I didn’t get the chance to join the party cause I’m so sick that day (had to lay down all day) and Irisya also not feeling well. I’ll bet the party should be as fun as planned with all the guest wearing their favourite football team.

Economy cupcakes for school day

This is my first order of cupcakes after Raya. Although I haven’t open orders yet for public on my website, I still make small small orders for my repeat customer.

My customer, Puspa have ordered 70pcs of economy cupcakes for her daughter school day which is still in primary school. Why it is called economy cupcakes? It’s called that way because it’s using the normal paper cup like my standard muffin cup and the icing is very minimal with no frosting covering the muffin, only buttercream icing design on top of each plain muffin. In this case, my customer ordered this type of cupcakes because she wants a budget muffin with striking colors of buttercream to attracts students of primary school to buy at their school day. Which I believe the daughter will have to bring to school and the teachers will sell it under a certain organization.

That’s remind me during my school days, whenever it’s time to have canteen day…it was really exciting cause we got to taste a lot variety of finger foods other than the normal days. And during that day, we don’t need to have class after rest. It’s so fun! Ohhh…I miss my school and the good old days.

P/S : For those who wants to order economy cupcakes for any events with tight budget or for wedding favour gift, please email me at muffinsmonster@ymail.com for further info. Thanks…

Muffin vs Cupcake

I browse thru google.com.my and type “muffins” and to my surprise I found out that my web www.muffins-monster.com have become No.1  on first page in the list as of today. Wow! Thanks to my mentor, IK who have guide me thru on how to become the priority first on first page google. At least I have implement what he taught me…although not all.

When I browse thru to the end of the page, this title attracts me…Muffins vs Cupcake. I’ve opened it and read it and it’s really relates to my product although the writer, Adline, is actually describing about two basic types of woman… So, this post I extract from http://venusbuzz.com. :

” Sitting at home, thinking random thoughts on baked goods, I had an “epiphany”. Women, I surmised, are either like muffins or cupcakes. Let’s examine the former first, shall we? Muffins, generally, are not as sweet as cupcakes, but are usually packed with flavour. They have more texture, and are more substantial, because they’re almost bread-like.

 

With muffins, what you see is what you get, because muffins don’t hide underneath gallons of frosting. They may, however, contain surprising bits of berries, nuts or chocolate chip, treasures to be found by the true connoisseur.

Cupcakes, on the other hand, are usually gloriously pretty to look at, although some can border on tacky. In truth, and in their essence, cupcakes are pretty bland. The mediocre cake-like base hides behind the thin paper cup and requires heaps of frosting and sprinkles to obscure its featureless self and fool onlookers into thinking that they’re more interesting than they really are.

If someone tends to go for looks, and not substance, they’ll fall for cupcakes from the get go. If someone has enough good taste to fall for a muffin, they’re in for a treat, because more often than not, the muffin’s paper cup runneth over – giving you more “bang” for your buck.

My muffin versus cupcake analogy, is of course, just for chuckles; although after writing this, I turn to my husband, force him to read it, and demand an answer to, “Am I a muffin or a cupcake??” He says, “Muffin”. Good on him (as if he could have gotten away with saying cupcake!).

I am yet to explore and analyse the possible existence of muffin-cupcake hybrids, although it is entirely possible. They, perhaps, could be the product of natural selection or mutation, whichever way you prefer to look at it. To all the guys out there, I hope you can tell a muffin from a cupcake, and when you’ve got one, do relish all her endearing qualities.

Cupcakes order – Birthday celebration

End of last week is quite a tiring week cause this is first time I did muffins & cupcakes order without any assistant…only me & kids… It’s a bit hard to manage with the kids around. It’s not that I’m not grateful that I have kids but now I know how hard it is to have 2 jobs responsibility at one time. I think I can’t manage it and hopefully could get a helper soon. Still searching for a helper actually as now it’s very hard to get an Indon lived-in maid.

Well, that’s about it but I still manage to complete the cupcakes order on time.

The first order on last Thursday came from Kak Aida…who was a sister of my regular customer, Kak Aiza Tmn Melawati..hehe..I remember that cause I’m from Melawati too! Kak Aida ordered a birthday cupcakes (for her husband …I think) with a special request. She wants the cupcake to be a big cup at the center and the rest is standard cup…. What a brilliant idea… The theme for this cupcakes is Guitar.. I believe the guy who celebrate this birthday loves to play guitar. (hmmm…I have a guitar at home but nobody playing it…what a waste.)

So..here is the final design that I’ve made…dunno whether it satisfies Kak Aida or not…but to me it does not satisfy me, lot of improvement need to be made..

The next order came from my Sister in-law, Kak Ina who wants to celebrate her kids birthday, Aina & Faiz. It has been completed on last friday night. She ordered 200pcs economy cupcakes and 1 box of 25pcs cupcakes. I want to introduce this economy cupcakes for those who would like to have a pretty decorated muffins with a very low cost compare to my standard cupcakes price. A simple design with cream icing is yet soo cute & customer could request the theme color accordingly.

I’ve also made a box of cupcakes for the birthday girl & boy (my niece & nephew). I make it half-half theme…for the boy, ultraman theme (as requested by my little boy) and for the girl, pink flower theme. Most of the time it’s really hard for me to get an idea what to create for a boy/man…lucky me most of my customer will make a specific request for their boy or man birthday.

Pertunangan Ad & Razz

Today I’ve completed one cupcake order from Nina, my friend’s sister, also a friend of my sister Elia. She ordered this pinkish cupcake for her friend engagement in Puchong. Although it’s only 16 cupcakes to be decorated but I try not to do the same design as before. I manage to come out with a new design this morning where it has been inspired from baby girl headband…(which I’m looking for Irisya actually)…3 pink roses at the center with leaf at both end..

So, below is the creation that I’ve made…hope the lady who receives this like it very much… “Semoga pertunangan ini membawa ke jinjang pelamin…Amin”.
