TY! or better known to everyone as "Nat" short for Natalie; turned 21 last weekend. A Happy HAppy Birthday TY; I'm happy we've managed to stay friends despite how I've been away for so long...wouldn't ever wanna lose touch with such a beautiful person. It's dear friends like you who make me look forward to coming home every year. This petite little darling is witty, bubbly and absolutely adorable!- she doesn't look too bad either *wink* Hehe~ We've known each other from high school; it's always fun catching up with her every time I come home from studying abroad in Sydney. I was delighted to make the short guest list to her Birthday celebration at Velvet Underground(Zouk) on Saturday~ I initially intended to arrive with a pretty miniature cake in hand; but alas... things never always work out as I 'intend'.
I worked with 2-3 pretty pink shades, black and a little dusting of luster to create a tall cylindrical cake (bad Idea!!), piped a beautiful delicate butterfly out of royal icing (bad BAD idea!!) and topped the flat surface on top with stacked white chocolate truffles to give the cake a little more shape. The party was in Kuala Lumpur, 2 hours drive away from home. I wasn't driving, but I knew I would have to be holding the cake upright throughout the drive there; I didn't design the cake for enough kinetic movement....guess what happened?*squint*
I fell asleep in the car....*pfft*...arm tilted sideways...Cake went 'bye-bye'! *SOB* ARGHHHH(*#%*_@&()# ....yea...thank god for the photographs I took before the trip. Wasted hours of my work. I was initially worried about the fondant layer sagging and melting as I frosted the cake in a hurry that morning. After it tipped over; there wasn't anything to worry about anymore *laughs*
Natalie's cake; immortalized by my camera lenses; devoured entirely by my dad when we finally got to KL, was given an A+ for taste *tear*
She'll just have to settle for that Grease DVD I bought for her as a present *sigh* At least I know it's her favourite show of all time :)
