Starstruck much?

*giggle* Su gets a little nervous and shy around celebrities.
You won't believe how lucky she got!

I was commissioned to do the birthday cake of Miss Marion Caunter.
The stunningly beautiful, charming and talented Marion that we see posted all over billboards, VJ-ing on Channel V and making Malaysians proud to have her as one of us!
I admit; having came home just recently; I haven't been keeping up to date with the new trends and faces; but wow...was I blown away by this incredibly outstanding young lady. When I heard from her cousin in Singapore; I did throw in a couple hours of research to read through interviews and look at a couple articles to get a feel of what Marion would like. By the end of the night; I almost felt I knew her personally! haha I had to get the cake concept down pat!
Truth be told, I have only been around her for less than 15 minutes, presented her a cake, shook her hand and shared 2 words... but I'm already a fan. *laughs* I can't help myself... I'm silly like that. *grin*
You know the beautiful types you can't help but look twice at? ... well.. I couldn't stop staring *blush*
and the best thing of all; She LOVED her cake!!! *does a victory dance*

She even had a white Chanel bag with her that afternoon! Coincidence?! Ridiculous!
She was too cute; she went "Pass me my bag; I want a photo with it!"
too funny.
Despite my inability to get a hold of myself amongst her well established friends and family, I left the venue feeling regal... I couldn't help smiling to myself....thinking.. "Marion loved her cake and I made it!" I was ecstatic. My drivers seat felt like cloud 9 as I made my way back home.
I wonder if I'll get to do her cake in 2009! *grin*

*a big thanks to everyone involved in her surprise gift. :) Appreciate the opportunity very much.

Laurel said...

I am always amazed at the details that can be put into cake/fondant/modeling chocolate by talented bakers like yourself! Beautiful! The shoes are amazing right down to the "stitches" and the fact that they're free-standing. The detail on the wallet in the purse... wow! O_O With your talent, I bet you become as famous (and well paid!!!) as Duff on Ace of Cakes. It's always so much fun to visit your site... your pictures are cute and I love hearing about your exploits. ^_^

I'll be starstruck if I met you :) I've read your blog every now and then when I need some inspiration. You are so talented and very creative. And when it comes to cake and cupcakes, I'll tell my friends to check out your blog.

Annie said...

I gaze awestruck at your creations all the time - I don't think I have ever seen cakes as brilliant as yours. Now we just have to wait until you are making them back in Sydney!

sam said...

su yin, i've been visiting ur blog 4 quite sum time, it's a link from other blog i frequented. while i'm not a fan in leaving comments but i just must this time. I just had a weird dream this morning. it's so very weird because it's about u, who i never know in person. i was at a place, where a press con of sort is going on and i saw a cake with a goal post and players around it and immediately thought you must be the one decorating it. while everybody is singing praises about how yummy ur cake is, i was looking around to see u in person. the setting is like back to the future - u don't look exactly like the pic in ur profile, more matured looking. u hv a big team with u it seems and it is a huge place with lotsa food, cakes, pancakes, all sorts of delicacies. i don't know y u come to my dream, it is so odd but i believe u r shooting for the stars. the huge thing about this dream is u r still such a humble and nice person. i believe u r in person. wish u all the very best. hope our paths cross one day.

Wow Su, I'm floored! Your cake-decorating skills made my humble Chocolate Cloud Cake (that I recently learnt to make) seemed so... messy & raw & lookd like rubbish! :P

Beautiful, I'm sure it tasted as good as it looked.
