Cake deliveries to far away places are never much fun.
Though it is nice to sometimes have company throughout the hours of driving...which can seem like an eternity when I'm by myself. Singing out loud with my collection of favourite tunes can be heaps fun when I'm alone... but it's moments when you've heard the same song multiple times that you wished you had someone to talk to instead.
This weekend.. my drive alone was beyond perfect. It was the most breathtaking Malaysian 'drive' day I have ever experienced. *giggle*
Little traffic. Blue crisp skies, puffy white clouds, roads free of traffic police ;)... it was the perfect day for a speedy steady drive with my cake safely tucked away in the back of my car. Mom had derived a nifty little tray device which solves the logistics of moving cakes about.
It's always beautiful after it rains..the sky is so very clear and the clouds are bright and few. It's been the rainy season for Malaysia the past couple of weeks. I like to call it the 'rainbow' season instead! *grin*
The cake was meant for a Chinese couple who celebrated their 60th birthday together. I thought it'd be nice to have a 'god of longevity' and his wife on a landscape nestled below a cave filled with gold to represent fortune and prosperity.
The little chinese characters read 'mountain of gold' and their family name.
I can't believe it's been almost a week since i've had a chance to update my little journal with cake. I have always loved speaking about my experiences with making each crafted cake display. Funny how I now have barely time to write about them anymore. My life is now completely surrounded and conquered by all things cake.
Sis made a comment about how she thinks I am a walking ant bait. There's apparently a trail of ants every place I travel on foot. I have to admit; there is truth to what she claims.
I take showers, i scrub my hands and feet... I still smell of vanilla.. sugar and buttercream.
I sat down on the floor at a court for badminton with friends last night. Within minutes...there were ants all over. How did I find notice them? They bit me of course! *pout*
