Black Beauty - Black Velvet Cupcake

It uses the same recipe as Red velvet (RV) , only this time instead of red colouring , it's black  gel colouring which gives it the intense rich dark cocoa look .As for the frosting, instead of cream cheese ,I made SMBC using pure SCS butter .The taste.....you have to try it to know

Still here - apam polka dot

It amazes me how these cute little apam polka dot has still  not lost its popularity .I have stop making and taking orders for a while even when they were many request for it. I guess I was enjoying the pricier bakes  such as Macarons  and cupcakes .


Perhaps because its affordable and the mix colours are able to bright up any party.. people still seek for this cute little dotted apam. So if I'm not too tied up with other bakes, apam's will still be ok to make.

Swiss Meringue Butter Cream -Best choice for less sweet frosting

Swiss Meringue Butter Cream (SMBC) taste  like heaven. It's so light , creamy, fluffy ,satiny smooth ,stable and not at all overly sweet like most frosting. 

I definitely prefer it over any other kind of frosting. Ever since I first tested SMBC I have been searching for a fool proof recipe that I love and that is easy to make. 


As usual I found it in my virtual guru - Cikgu Youtube ..internet rocks.Click here for technique & recipe

Trust me on this one.The 1:2:3  recipe is so easy to make once you get hold of the technique.  
It's so amazing I can't say enough and I  prefer to refrigerate my cupcakes after frosting them with this SMBC. This will set the frosting. Then bring them to room temperature prior to serving. It's cake with icing minus the guilt

Edible image to add in fun ...Madagascar on the run...my son made  200 pcs  of these for fund raising during his School Canteen day and they sold out in less than an hour.


With SMBC , my rose swirls were so easy to pipe out and the frosting was stable without being too sweet.....

Celebrated Moments

One of the perks of doing door gift business is I get invited to the kenduri(s) too.Between April and June, I  was involved in preparing door gifts for 2 hotel weddings , 2 grand halls and 1 open air cozy home  engagement kenduri.They were all special in their own way.

Last weekend I attended a grand wedding held in Putrajaya.I had done her engagement doorgift 6 months ago and now entrusted with the big day.

The food from Kuzie catering by Pak Engku did live up to their reputation catering for many celebrities and big names in the country..such as Siti , Lisa Surihani & Linda Rafar just to name a few.

Chantiq Sweet Treats was most delighted to be given the trust to be part of this lovely celebrated moment .


One thing new and different which I made this time  was to also cater favors for the little ones .We have decided to do POP CORNS with a lovely Cinderella & prince charming  theme sticker. 

Being there in person,I was able to witness for myself how kids light up with joy when they are handed out with the cute sweet cone.

There was scent  of fresh flowers everywhere

You can have it in any theme you can imagine...this one was happy ever after
They both made a graceful gift on the dulang carried by "dayang2"...

Favors in jars - Be Eco friendly




I am personally in love with favors in jars, they are a great way to celebrate your special day by having it personalised as a gift for each guest.

You can choose the graphic, font and message to go on each jar to enhance your occasion  color theme  .

With their many shapes and sizes , you can fill them with your favourite confectionary or bakes ,they make box and plastic packaging look over rated.


The best part, glass jars are reusable and is enviromental friendly , lets do a favor for our planet , lets be  eco  friendly.....hurrah for glass jars...

The beauty of giving

We all know that giving makes the world a better place.In Islam we have Sedekah , Hadiah ,Zakat which are all the act of giving

 When we give, we benefit others and make them happy and when others are happy the feeling comes back to us.

Studies show that the  simple act of giving can improve our health & wealth. Research also  shows that giving is one of the best things we can do for ourselves, as well as others. It is a spiritual therapy .



People are exceptionally generous when celebrating happy moments.
  
Spread happiness...a cute token of appreciation like this  is sure to bring out a smile...

Give .....for life  is sweet indeed
