Muffins info

Extract from bbonline.com :
“Not to be confused with its very similar looking counterpart, muffins have the same single size portion as cupcakes but are usually less sweet and don’t have frosting. Less known as a dessert, they are great as a quick breakfast, a snack with tea or coffee, or an appetizer alternative to bread. Consider it a more filling sophistication. Best part about it- if you’re trying to lose weight you have a wider range of health alternatives from your reliable standard fruit and nut muffins to the sweeter eggnog or chocolate chip muffins to the healthy batch of bran muffins.”

So,choose which one you prefer… We offer both muffins & cupcakes…daaa…

Healthy muffins

Image extract from rapidlylosebellyfat.com

“If you’re looking for a quick snack on the run that will still help you with your goal to lose belly fat, you may want to consider a healthy muffin.  Muffins are quick to prepare and can easily be taken in a container with you wherever you might be going for maximum convenience.
The trick to making sure that you’re creating healthy muffin is to look for foods that you can use to replace some of the higher fat, higher calorie ingredients so you get a healthy muffin that still fits in with your fat loss meal plan.”

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.

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.

Muffins Monster reseller

Last Thursday, 16 July, after the Radio interview..I received a call from Yati who sells kerepek from home. She wants to become my reseller by selling my muffins to her customer. It’s quite a long discussion as I also wanted to know how frequent she would order from me and the quantity. She also have received comments from her work colleague who have ordered muffins from me before. Whoever he/she is, thanks for promoting my muffin.

For the first order, she ordered 3 flava…double choc chip, kiwi & blueberry. She received her order on last Monday morning, 20 July….and on the same day she had sold all the muffins. By the way, she just ordered for 24pcs altogether I suggest her to order more after this since the response is quite good.

I think this is another option for me to look out for more Reseller out there to cover a few locations. This can reduce the transportation cost if you would have to come here to pick-up yourself…and you can buy for few muffins with combination flava which I could not offer…my minimum order for each flava is 12 muffins. So, if you want to become one of my reseller, let me know k.

Currently, I have  Millie covering Kajang area (contact her @ 019-2800416) and Yati covering Subang & PJ area (contact her @ 013-2097338).

Last Sunday was a disaster day for me because I’m baking with pain stomach.  Not sure why I got this, but after seeing the Dr that day, Dr says it’s really to gassy that cause me feeling ‘pedih ulu hati’. Seriously, I’ve never felt like this before, even during pregnant (people says pregnant woman always get ‘pedih ulu hati’ rite?, that time I never had the chance to feel it)…So Dr says it maybe cause from salah makan or lewat makan. I think the 2nd one relates to me…few days before I always had a late lunch and no breakfast. hmmm….I’m very bad in time management I guess.. with all the orders queing up… I feel very bad to myself, to my kids & to my customers. 😦
