June 24th.

Today's a really nice day.

It's the day two VIPs in my life were born, and it's a day Weishan and I spent the entire afternoon baking for these two VIPs. ^^

Father's day was just last week (&coincidentally just a post back), and yet today's another special day for my father! It's his birthday!!!! Heh. Because these two special days are always so near each other, it's always difficult to decide on what to prepare for him. Then again, I also get to cheat a little by preparing just one card, and then doing something special on the other day. Lol. This year, I baked a few Blueberry cupcakes! :D One of his favourite flavoured cupcakes. I am glad premix never disappoints and my Dad enjoyed the cupcake. ^^

Since we didn't wanna bake too many cupcakes, knowing we'll end up throwing most of them later, we decide to use half the mixture for the cupcakes and the other half for Gary's rainbow cake in a jar.

Unfortunately, It's also Gary's birthday today too! The other VIP in my life. Except... the 'I' doesn't stand for 'Important' but 'Irritating' LOL. Here I am blogging while waiting for him to drop by my place and collect the cake. HEHE. Could have had Weishan pass it to him but she was afraid the cream would melt before she reach her home. :O I'm just really happy we manage to bake the cake really prettily and whipped the cream successfully. Lol.

ANYWAY!!! Pictures~~~ ^^

Here's us trying out the cake with whipped cream that was dyed a little too blue to match with the rest of the cakes~
Super thankful she was there to do it together. ♥

This is how we cool our cakes. xD

Weishan and her shaky hands, slicing the circumference of the cakes to make sure it is the right size!

And then we realize these two colors resembles the sponge people use to wash dishes!

It was 3 long hours in the kitchen but very much worth the time! :D

What a coincidence! Just when I'm done going pass his cake, he called and arrived to pick up the cake. I hope he likes it and I hope it taste as good as it looks. ^^

Here's us camwhoring with the camera sitting on a few items stacked together!
There were definitely many people watching us because we were seated in the middle of the restaurant. LOL.
