So much enthusiasm; so little sleep.

Moving on to the next class agenda in our NotterSchool curriculum... Plated Desserts, sorbets and icecreams was an incredibly exciting switch from tiered cakes and fondant covering to creative flavour and texture combinations of various dessert platters.
Su hasn't been sleeping well.. hence the big gaps in between blog updates. I'm going to make it up to you guys with some awesome posts in the next couple of days. :) Promise.
For now; it's just going to be a drool-fest of delicious photographs. From simple chocolate tarts to exotic lemongrass consommés. They were lots of fun to compose.
When I finally catch on a couple of snooze nights I'll probably have more to say about my amazing experiences with Chef Mary in plated desserts.

**Oh! Happy Chico De MaYO~~` WooOOoo~! It's time to WHip out those COrONa's!!.. hmm..more drinking tonight..*sigh* not good.
It's kinda great that I'm keeping myself busy here in Orlando; but it kinda sucks how I have much less time to spend on my dear journal.

Your friend Edward Low and my sister (stranger to you) talks bout your blog and your talent ALL the time. Today I finally visited your blog and yeaps, they were right! Your cakes and cupcakes deco is super duper cool and Meticulous! Cant taste it from here but sure looks superb!

I admire your dedication to your blog and passion. Am surprised the conglomerates of this world has not wipped you up and invested an empire on you. :o)

Keep up the good work. I like your photography style too (its good and has got real potential but needs more art direction - I'm in advertising, forgive me) but overall, gal! you'll be someone real famous one day, and i think soon too.

Celebrate and have fun!

Edward's friend, Cheryl.

You know, for me a week is not complete without me checking up on your blog to find out what you're upto. I've been transfixed by your food adventures for some time now.

However, that being said, I'd much rather you were having fun, becuase hunnie; you deserve it - in shovels!!!
Keep us updated when you can, 'cos seriously, what you're upto is so awesome.

Hi Su,
check this one out:

They are beautiful, aren't they?

I do hope one day you will be able to make great pattisserie shops in several countries.

What is in a glass of sliced strawberries and lemon grass sticking out on one of your photo?

I want to ask you about edible gold leaf on cake accessories, are these really 24 carat gold?

Lilia: hiya~ thanks for that..looks good! The strawberries were soaking in a lemongrass soup made with a light syrup infused with fresh lemongrass. It was awesome! The gold leaf is actually made of gold; but they are very thin sheets of it.. not harzadous to eat for sure :)
