Cupcakes take the cake

My sister baked these cuppies during Nina’s 75th birthday bash. There was at least 300 pieces of cupcakes on the table that night but I only ate one piece .. I wanted more but .. they just vanished..

I think these ‘little’ people ate them!!

Happy Birthday!!!

Happy 11th Birthday to Talun (Darren).… Happy 9th Birthday to Talin (Darlene)…

Two weeks ago my nephew celebrated his 11th birthday. He requested chocolate cupcakes!
so I made him devil chocolate cupcakes and butterwalnut cupcakes.

Then, Darlene celebrated her birthday at Pizza Hut last thursday. She wanted ‘princess cake’ and she got it! But she wasn't too happy with how her cake turned out. I didn’t post the photo here cuz the cake turned out pretty darn ugly (LOL)..

Someone please help me..

…stop the baking madness.

We had some leftover durians in the fridge. So, I peeled off a few seeds, mashed the pulp and add them into the batter . I baked like 3 dozen of durian mini cupcake. As usual I delivered some of my ‘fresh-from-the oven’ cupcake to mum’s place.

But I didn't stop there…
After dinner last night, I made these cookies…

Cinnamon raisin cookiesChocolate Chip + Nut cookies

Cupcake Girl???

Hubby: cupcake girl…?
Me: Err.. yeah, nice name for my blog. Hmmm..but the blog is not all about cupcakes so I just stick with Arfayela. hehe..

I took a day off from the office last Friday just to bake these cuppies. My brother and my 4+months pregnant sister help me to bake and decorate a total of 150 cupcakes.
