What’s Bakin’? #4

Goshhh, I absolutely ADORE this set, I just had to show you guys the making of it!!!

Normally I don’t talk much about my bakes or how I do it anymore, coz well, I do it almost everyday and this isn’t all that new to my readers but this cake is really special. Hands down my #1 favourite creation because it was sooo much fun to decorate and because of the sheer difficulty and brilliance, lol!

Following few pics were taken with iphone as we only had 4 hours to complete this cake and 24 similar cupcakes thus the horrible quality, but we have awesome pictures later on in the post!

Frosting the naked 2 tier cake! The bottom tier looks really messy / crumby coz we had to cut it into half to put cream in the middle, and well let’s just say… most home made cakes are a NIGHTMARE to frost because of all the crumbs everywhere. e_e

Crumbs and melted / clumpy buttercream, my worst fears.

Sitting in the fridge so the cream takes shape and hardens up, easier for us to work with. This was actually so much fun to do, only took 10 minutes, usually when we frost cakes it’s METICULOUSLY difficult but this was a breeeeze thanks to the intentionally random patterns.

I wish all cakes were like this!! It may not look that impressive now but just you wait and see…

Adding sand!!!

Can you guess what it will be?! :D

Painstakingly handcrafted fondant decorations. Hai my little sea creatures fwends! *tickles*

Ready to see the final product???????

In other news…

Less impressive cupcakes and cakes that would probably pale in comparison to the epic cake above, but, still cute to look at nevertheless. :P

Winnie the pooh cut out cake! With Shiberty’s Sweets signature rainbow interior ^.^

It may only be about 8″ wide but it’s really tall!!!! Can you say value for money? Lol

Fondant flowers :)

As you know, I’m not a fan of fondant, but you can’t deny it’s unique texture and flair it adds to cakes, so I indulge in it once in awhile. (and ONLY once in awhile it’s a strict rule I will swear by!)

He said, “looks like something you’d find in a korean shop.”

What? LOL. Well kinda true!!!!

Sam didn’t agree with this colour combination I did but I think it’s really elegant!!! :)

Little rosettes!!! Uber cute.

For that princess you adore.

Yabbadabadddooooo!!!!

Cat Physics!!!! Love this iphone game.

If you haven’t played it before you should download and try I think there’s a free version, kept me entertained for many nights. Nothing like some therapeutic iphone games before bedtime.

For the guy who loves his flashy automobiles.

Used to think he was really annoying but I like him when he’s not talking or moving and sitting on top of a cupcake ready to be eaten. LOL


With love, from Shiberty’s Sweets!

SO….

DO YOU LOVE IT?!?

Tell me you love it!!! It’s so sparkly, how can you not! I’ve finally shifted domain. It’s about time ♥ Oh and just so you know, I haven’t finished labeling my posts and changing the “About me” and “Fav Photos / Posts” sections yet but I’ll get around to doing it ASAP!

Also the comments and my sidebar links may not work but in the mean time you can gush to me or talk to me at http://www.formspring.me/shiberty lol.

I absolutely ADORE my blog design, proudly done by Kai Yi @ FifthStorey.com, a very talented freelance web designer!

I’m so fortunate to have met her through a blog reader / cupcake customer, who then indirectly introduced me to Kai Yi and voila! I had a web designer sponsor. Can’t even believe my luck.

I was ridiculously picky right down to the nitty gritty details, like exactly what font she should use for my banner, what color tone, what text size for my sidebar, color scheme everything. But yet somehow she managed to fulfill all my demands and adding her own unique flair to the design, thus bringing my fantasy layout to life! She deserves so much credit for that. For creating a gorgeous design that’s her own work, yet still managing to make it suit me so much.

Thank you soooo much Kai Yi. You’ve done an amazing job!!!

She’s been super patient with me all this while, complying to my ten thousand requests, I think she must have sent me at least 15 drafts lol (which is a lot!!!) I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy creative person to come up with an original, professional & appropriate design for you! :) You can contact her at i.am@fifthstorey.comShe does commercial sites too!

So, if you’re wondering what inspired this blog design….

It’s the song Enchanted, by Taylor Swift.

I fell in love with it after closely listening to the lyrics. I was… enchanted.

“This night is sparkling, don’t you let it go / I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home / I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew / I was enchanted to meet you.”

Lyrics so honest and real, anyone can relate to.

the song, the message and the special warm fuzziness I get when I listen to it. It’s about falling in love, BEING in love, and being enchanted with something or someone. It’s a wonderful feeling that fills you up inside. It makes me think of laying under the stars with your soul mate, frolicking around dandelion fields with your summer love and even staring in awe of the aurora borealis in the night sky. (which is a dream of mine!)

I immediately thought… WOW. I’d love to have this somehow implemented in my new design!!! I needed a big change, and this was perfect. Hopefully this will remind me to always be enchanted by life itself, and to share what I love about it with you guys.

Well, obviously I don’t expect y’all to miraculously start falling in love with ME (ehehe), but I hope the layout successfully depicts a feeling of surreal happiness, or at the very least, the nostalgia of being in love and being enchanted.


Thank you
to my lovely readers for sticking by me, through my ups and downs, my dramatic and boring days, my terrible blog skins and lengthy dodgy URLs…

This is a new chapter in my blogging life and I’m so happy to share it with you! I feel so grown up now. Imma cry :’) Special shout out to everyone who joined me in Live Chat #8 tonight, thanks for your encouragement and support when things got a little dramatic and out of hand nearing the launch time.. I love you guys SO much!!!
