My Son Joshua's 3rd Birthday Cake-Buzz Lightyear Cake

Three years have zipped by and its unbelievable that my son is 3. It is true what they all say, it goes by fast. I remember when my son was just a few months young and it felt like an eternity during those late/early morning hours. Now, I look back and think "geez where did all that time go?"
Instead of me choosing the design for Joshua's cake. He is telling me what cake design he wants for his birthday. 
I of coarse could not wait to make his birthday cake. 
But the theme oh the theme, it was constantly changing. For a couple of weeks it was Noddy, then Peppa Pig which I was over the moon about.   I thought for sure it was Peppa the Pig and then he threw a curve ball and suddenly he said BUZZ LIGHTYEAR. Whaaaaaaaaat!!!! What happened to Peppa son??? " No Mama I want Buzz."
If you're a parent you know what I"m talking about. So Buzz it was and I had a great time making it. The smile on his face oh I will forever cherish. 
For all you parents out there who ever wanted to make a cake for your child I say DO IT! Its the best feeling when they know their Mommy or Daddy made their bday cake. And it doesn't have to be super fancy I mean lets face it all they wanna do is gobble up the icing. 
That SMILE!!! trust me its priceless!
Here's a video of me on the day of his birthday. I had to sneak outta the birthday to take a quick video. 
For the first time ever I"m in NON PINK Yikes:) Well at least my dress coordinated with the cake.

Deelite 3D Bear Cake!

We made this adorable 3D Bear Cake for a very special birthday girl. 
The entire Bear is cake from head to toe. 
We based the cake design from the birthday girl's fave Salvatore Ferragamo Bear. 
We loved adding the texture imprint on the bear. 
We used an air brush technique to color the bear to make the colors look more soft and realistic. 

Enjoy the video! We Luved making this cake:)

Complete Deelite's 10th Anniversary Party Celebration!!!!

Its been 10 years and boy what a ride it has been. Hmmm where do I even start. Well firstly I sure do feel "YOUNG"..... Forever 21 I always say:)

Master class Grad Pic 2003                CD-About Us Pic 2007-09

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.
