Merry Christmas everyone!

We're in countdown mode. About 1 week  till xmas YAYAYAYAY!
I"m sure some of you are still scrambling for gifts. In the midst of the hussell and bussell, don't forget to take a breather and enjoy the holiday atmosphere, spirit and joy. I had to remind myself that 2 weeks ago when we were in the midst of the IBE cake and bakery expo. I literally had no time to breath between cakes, classes and prepping for the convention it was seriously eventful to say the least. Here are some great photos of the expo. As you can see our booth was really buzzing with sweet talent from many different artists and brands. 
We featured Kelmy, Satin Ice, Wilton, Icing Images, Lorann Oils, & Sugar Arts. We also had a great show of Master Artists from around the globe: David MaCarfrae (Royal Icing Master)from David Cakes, Kristina Rado (Royal Icing Master), Mike Terry ( Wafer Paper Master), Kathleen Lange ( Lambeth Method Master), Robert Haynes ( Sugar Flower Master). This year we highlighted the Year of the Royal icing so it was really great seeing different Royal Icing masters show case their interpretation of piping with Royal Icing. 
 Within our booth area we also had 3 workshop spaces in the back for people to take classes. 

 Here I am demonstrating Satin Ice fondant techniques
 David with is Royal Icing Smile:)

To give you a breather from the holiday buzz I thought I'd share a bit of entertainment.
Go grab you mulled wine or hot chocolate sit back relax and enjoy this Gingerbread Boy Cake video We hope this inspires and entertains you:)

Merry Christmas!!!

Star Wars Cake & My 4 Boys

Hi hi all, I hope your fall season has been off to a great start. Here in Hong Kong we're only feeling a bit of a cool breeze. Never the less, its nice to get that cozy feeling again. Your eyes are probably still popping out of your face because you think I have 4 boys. Noo noo nooo, I only have 2 ( 3 yr and 9 months) I have 2 nephews as well ( 4 yr & 10 months) They are all very close in age which is great when we get together. I have the privilege and joy of being their official Bday cake Mommy & Auntie. When it was just the 2 older boys it wasn't too bad. As soon as the 2 younger ones were born it was a game changer. It has been a very eventful year of bday parties and celebrations.
I call it my birthday cake marathon. In asia we celebrate the babies 100 day. So my marathon started in April when my bb son reached 100 days.
Here's the cake

Then 1 month later it was my son's birthday. Some of you may remember his Buzz lightyear cake.

Then I get a lil break and October was my Nephew's 4th Birthday Star Wars theme.
Here it is

December is bb Nephews 1st Brithday. Still figuring out what to do. Then I have my bb son's 1st birthday in Jan. and the Marathon is finished. In May the Marathon starts all over again.I take it all with great joy to be apart of my 4 boys milestones. They all grow up so fast. I often look at the previous cakes I"ve made for them and see how they have outgrown certain themes and stages in life. The 2 eldest are just active lil "ANGELS":) and the lil ones are cute as ever. Before you know it it'll be thier 18th birthday and they may not even want a cake.......Sadness. But never the less I will make them one. And one day even their wedding cake. Oh tears......:) Life can get so busy but it is when I make these cakes where I can take a step back and enjoy all my sweet blessings:)
Here are some of the boys previous cakes.

This was no ordinary bus cake. I put an electric bubble machine inside the cake so when the cake got pushed out, bubbles were coming out of the bus. Is that Cool or what....if I don't say so myself:P

This was Joshua's 1st birthday cake. He had a hawaiian Luau theme. This cake was absolutly HUGE! And if you look very closely, the cake was a rainbow cake on the inside as well. I really didn't plan for it to be so big. I had so much fun making all the little details we had to make a bigger cake to place all the animals and creatures.
Aloha and have a blessed week!

Back to School with Deelite!

Summer has zipped by and kids are all back to school. Hope you all had a wonderful summer filled with sunny days, lemonade, ice cream & sweet memories. Here at Deelite we had an amazing summer at our Summer Kids Camp. It was such a huge it we extended our program and added on 2 extra classes. 

It was awesome watching all the young ones discover the art of baking and decorating. I think the best thing is to just let them go wilds with their imagination and that's exactly what they did. Here's a video highlighting our Summer Kids Camp. 

We are so proud of our Jr. Deelite Decorators and Bakers!:)
Wishing you all a school year filled with adventure and new discoveries!
Happy Decorating & Baking:)

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.

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      
CD-About Us Pic 2010-2014

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:)
