One thing is for sure, I am ever so greatful for the blessings and the many people I have met through Complete Deelite. Complete Deelite would not have been possible without all of our loyal customers, my family and our dedicated Deelite team. Most of you see my face on all the videos, in magazines and sometimes on subway posters during your morning commute, but truly truly this show is not a 1 woman show.  Without our hard working and passionate Deelite team and my mom, brother, stepdad, dad, husband, my 2 lil boys it would not be the same.
Just like a cake, a cake is  not a cake if you just put flour in a pan and stick it in the oven. You need butter, eggs, sugar & spice and then you gotta beat it up with a mixer...... OUCH yes sometimes it hurts and the mix goes through a process but once its baked Oooooooh the satisifaction of freshly baked cake, the aroma, the fluffiness, the yumminess its unforgettable. It has been an adventurous and amazing ride and we look forward to seeing what the next chapter will reveal:)

In celebration of our 10th anniversary we invited all of our Deelite friends and family aka "ingredients" and had an amazing night of thanksgiving.
Here are some highlights. Sit back, relax and enjoy.. You will see my DREAM birthday cake keep reading.....
Now a birthday party is not a party with out yummy food.
 
The night was filled the surprises.
After our tummies were full, we enjoyed a fabulous video about our 10 year journey. How the video guys squeezed 10 years into 10 minutes is amazing. 
After the video we showered the room with a cake show:) I"ve always wanted to do this and was so happy to bring my cake dreams to life. Each table was presented with a special Deelite cake. All 12 cakes were different designs. 
And then my dream birthday cake got rolled out......Giant Cupcake garden made from 1,500 mini cupcakes:) Best part was we all sang Happy Birthday as all the fireworks were being lit. The room was absolutely magical. 
And the crowd went wild!!!
And Deelite Family went wild too:)
And then more surprises....
In honor of our 10th Anniversary we put together a cake decorating booklet It's a Sweet World! This booklet features cake decorating techniques and projects from all over the world.
The best birthday party ever!!!!

Enjoy this super video featuring the  History of Deelite, how we started,the dramatic stories and more:)

Sweet Arts Show 2014 at HKIBE!

What a fantastic December this has been. We had a great Sweet Arts Show this year at the Hong Kong Bakery Expo.
We invited guest artists from UK, USA, Malaysia and Brunei to make it all happen.
Our booth was one big bowl of happy confetti:)
Here are some of our display cakes we made for the show. This year we went with the theme of whimsy and fun:) We designed the cakes highlighting the use of Satin Ice, Sugar Arts airbrush colors and dust, Molds &  stencils.


As you can see, our cakes were very popular:)
We also had decmonstrations galore so there were plenty of ideas and techniques for everyone to share. Edward Frys from The Sugar Art featuring his fabulous color dusts, edible glitters and air brush machines, Dominic from Marvelous Molds, Satin Ice had a nice area demonstrating their fabulous fondant and gumpaste. Peggy Tucker demoing the Spellbinders machine & Susan Carberry showing her fabulous fondant & deco gel techniques. Luving our topsy turvy wedding cake on the left too:)
Here is William Tan from Ipoh & Faridah from Brunei doing doing their master fondant work.

Here I am your's truly:) showing some super easy and impressive lace decor. I had so much fun meeting our fans face to face too. 

We tried really hard to get a group picture but it was just impossible as everyone was so busy. So here was our best shot:)

David & Edward from David Cakes busy teaching their popular master royal icing workshop at the expo.

And lets not forget our shop:) While some of the team was buzzing around at the expo we also had some really fun xmas workshops going on at our store.

On the last day of the expo we announced the winners of the Wilton international cake decorating competition. Congrats to Cynthia, Connie & Tiffany 
Oh and last but certainly not least LI tv did some filming of all of the artists and will be featuring the footage in a couple of weeks highlighting the Sweet Arts Show and Cake decorating. Stay tuned woo Hooo I"ll keep Y'all posted:)

Royal Castle Cakes:)

We have been in serious castle mode.
We had the joy of creating 2 exsquisite castle designs for 2 very special princesses:)
Both had lights and firework effects added. Oh how I wish we could show you  fireworks and lights in action that would have been so cool. Well, I trust your imagination can give you a close enough visual:)

Here is our Royal Rose castle cake fit for a birthday queen. The cake flavor was chocolate and vanilla. We covered the cake with different shades of pink roses. The staircase was decorated with edible lace detail.
 
 
We made another giant princess castle cake for Karena Ng  Both beauties were featured in apple daily newspaper. As you can see, Karena was a very happy princess indeed.
 
Here are a few close up shots of some details on the castle. Lace detailing on staircase and a water fountain on the bottom of the castle.  






How could you not be a happy princess with a special cake designed by her boyfriend Raymond Lam:)

Fall is here:)

Hope you all had a lovely Summer. We spent our summer prepping our our 10th Anniversary.
Yup we are 10 and it sure is hard to believe how fast time has flown.
Oh the many stories I could share, they are endless. All the stories truly make us who we are today.
On my next post, I'll post some blast from the past photos.
I just need a lil more time to get them all together:)

We made a sweet birthday cake for Natalie featuring 2 of her favorite things: Bunnies and rainbows.
Rainbows are also Max's fave thing too. We highlighted this 3 tier cake with under the sea creatures.
For a memorable 60th birthday, we designed a cake for this daddy he sure will enjoy. As you can guess, his hobbies were horse racing and golf. 
 
Luv the details on the horse.

And for all our cupcake fans out there, we now offer mini cupcakes everyday at our cupcake counter. Wooohooo more to enjoy and trust me, one is never enough:)
