Fulfilling the dream.

You've heard lots about my plans for business from my constant bursts of excitement+ frustration throughout the months following my graduation from pastry school.
It's been 3 months. Where is she now? Is Su making cakes yet?
Indeed she is... but it isn't till recently that everything she had intended to do came together so perfectly.
As days passed and Su slogged... perseverance payed off. I received more help than I could ever expect from my family and those who got to know me from this journal of mine. I had all the support i needed from fellow bloggers and blog readers who I cherish as my dear friends.
I'm currently based in Kuala Lumpur; Malaysia guys.... Just as I promised months ago. *grin*
still calls Ipoh home; and KL her workplace. A big big thanks to the many who have been showing their support by placing cake orders. Truly appreciate everyone's enthusiasm on what I'll be bringing to the industry very soon. It's really helped keep me afloat during these difficult initial months. It really means alot to know that there are Malaysians out there who do appreciate my work.
It's all incredibly surreal. Who would have thought... from cooking and experimenting as a student to finally putting a name to all her creations and ideas.

adj. Greatly pleasing to the taste; delightful; delicious.

Now now... don't go running to 'delectable.com.my' just yet. *laughs*
it's not quite ready at this point. My website angel isn't done making it perfect. I can't wait to show everyone the amazing concepts she has created for the brand. Will definitely update everyone when the site is up and running. I'm currently working on my photographs for the portfolio and website. It's going to be very different from what you see from Su up to this point. Different but still 'Su' of course *wink* hehe.
This is meant to be just a sneak preview of the what's been keeping me busy. There's so much more to do!
Alright now..
Business set up...
...Power UP!

Hi Su,
I've been lurking for a while now, and am so inspired by your dedication and passion. If you are ever in Austin, TX look me up!

sam said...

Congrats! For being able to realise your dream and doing the thing that you love. Would like to get a glimpse of your 'stall' physically. Or is it online based?

Amanda said...

You'll probably be receiving a truckload of well-wishes, but I still feel compelled to say that I am so happy that you're out there living your dream.

So, when you feel at your wits' end, it's good to look back at laugh at the long way you've come.

much love,

hi Su,

Love the brand name "Delectable"...straight to the point..much as the "Delicious" chain of restaurants.

and the color choices, and the cake bites at the corner of the logo! the subtlety works!
