The Classic touch of Pink and Lace.

Just last weekend; I was given the opportunity to learn more about Malay culture and their wedding ceremonies. Fairuz and Dibah were getting engaged.
Dib had mentioned how she would like something Japanese incorporated into her "Dulang hantaran" cakes.
What's a dulang hantaran? Well I wasn't quite sure either... but after asking around a little more; I was told; they were little trays filled with presents from the brides family presented to the groom. They are usually elaborately decorated with flowers; intricate trimmings, ribbons and all of them matched the theme or colours of the wedding.

I was pretty excited to make my very first 'hantaran' cake! *grin*Her trays were lined with white lace and touched with petite pink roses around the corners. I wanted to make sure the cupcakes and miniature cake matched her decorations.

Congratulations Dib and Fai; lots of luck to both of you in your endeavors in Japan.

Hi Su, I stumbled onto your blogsite recently while searching for Malaysian recipes. Wow, I'm blown away. You have been so blessed with a wonderful gift of creating edible masterpieces. I hope someday you will return to the States and compete in one of Food Network's cake decorating challenges. You'll win without a doubt! All the best in your career.
