Eid-ul-Fitr Sweet Treats


Here are the sweet offerings for this year's Eid from Great Bakes. Kindly order by the 11th (Friday) of September and let me know your preferred pick-up date. Syawal 1 is tentatively the 20th (Sunday).

Kharjuram Cake

Kharjuram (dates in Telugu) and walnuts make a healthy and wholesome cake. This traditional lacto-vegetarian cake is favoured for its natural sweetness, high fibre content and usually enjoyed during Ramadhan for sahur or buka puasa.

RM54 for 7"round cake, ±600gm (serves 8-10).


Carrot Date Cake

Great Bakes' infamous Carrot Cake is given a twist with dates. A great cake to serve for Eid family reunions in the morning when it's too early for ketupat and rendang! The moist and luscious cake is topped with cream cheese and walnuts.

RM54 for 7"round cake, ±600gm (serves 8-10).


Blush Cupcakes

The nostalgic cherry cake is now refined into a light and refreshing fusion. The cherries are accompanied by glacé ginger and almonds, giving the cake a little bite in its moistness. The cupcakes blush in yumminess...

RM25 for 6 standard cupcakes in a box (min.order is 2 boxes).


Good ol' Baby Cuppies

Lay out a tray of mini cupcakes for the children to pop in their little mouths! They'll love you for your thoughtfulness for them. Choose your cupcakes in chocolate, vanilla or marble. Each will be covered in buttercream and decorated in the festive theme.

RM75 for 50 mini cupcakes.

Gone Swimming... for a week


Will definitely get myself into the water as often as I can to work-off those saddlebags (result from licking off icing ever so conveniently whenever there're leftovers in the bowl ;0). We will be away for a week, back in the kampung halaman to humour the kids since it's the school holidays. And many apologies in not posting new bags, yet. Been very busy sewing them and amidst sorting out the Hari Raya cake list. Do check-in on the first week of September when I'll be on the roll again. See ya! xox

Coming Soon!


The all-new Foldover Clutch. Stylish and convenient for an evening out with the girls. Plus, the handy wristlet strap is great for those hands-free moments on the dance floor! The clutch measures approximately 10.5"(w) x 6"(h) folded - just the perfect size for a purse, mobile phone and some makeup. Fully interfaced with a magnetic snap closure. I've also made a matching fabric button but not for all clutches. Found some nice looking buttons! Coming soon in September (fingers crossed).

1st Birthday

1st Birthdays should be memorable and a carnival theme like this bring smiles to every guests' face. Bring in the clowns! This moist chocolate-butter marble cake weighs 2kgs and covered in buttercream icing.

Children's Birthday

BOYS



GIRLS


TODDLERS



The above *shaped cake pans of children's favourite cartoon characters are available for rent. A cake of any of these shapes weighs between 1.5kg to 2kg, depending on your choice of cake and size of pan.

Colour schemes are flexible - if the little ankle-biter wants a pink care bear, she can have it; a green spongebob is also fine. If your princess wants a yellow crown, it'll be just as pretty with her name on that. And the laddie wants the dark spidey? Cool!

*subject to availability and kindly make orders at least 10 days prior to party.

SISSI Reversible Tote

Side A
Side B


The SISSI Reversible Tote is another of my favourite. Measuring at 13"(w) x 10"(h) x 3.4"(gusset), it is made from one of my favourite fabric design. It is muted and yet, very characteristic. The bag is further enhanced with a bright orange reversible option. Check out the Sissi Slouch Bag, the motif takes a bolder appearance.

LISA Reversible Tote

Side A
Side B

Bright and cheerful LISA Reversible Tote measures 13"(w) x 10"(h) x 3.5" (gusset). The motifs on both sides speak for its own beauty on this bag. A must-have piece to steal the show. Great for festive occasions or events where you'll get a lot of envious onlookers!

A Morning With Cupcakes




Always fun to spend a morning doing nothing but decorate cuppies...




Bozo looking sly, yet adorable with that tilt and sheepish grin. More clowns on the way ;-)

Romantic

Romance is always this simple. A rose-topped cupcake is great as wedding favours. The rose may be in buttercream (soft) or fondant (stiff). With buttercream, the cupcake will be completely edible and your guests will indulge! If fondant is used, the rose will hold its shape much better and the cupcake is less susceptible to damage. Choose your colour based on the wedding theme. The cupcake can be individually gift-packed in a window-box with your thank you note.

White On White


I just couldn't resist doing a white on white for this little assignment. Thoughts here were on my newly-engaged friend. Congratulations, Ela-J!!! xox

LISA Slouch Bag


Simply love the LISA Slouch Bag! The fabric lends an air of festivity to the simple bag. Dimensions are 11"(h) x 11"(w) x 2.5"(gusset). The mobile phone pocket and pen slot in the black interior uses the same exterior fabric. Hence, a nice pop-up effect inside the bag! The bag also has a magnetic snap closure. A beautiful bag to dress up an outfit.

NEW! Slouch Bag


Introducing the Reversible Tote's sidekick - the Slouch Bag. It's a handbag that slouches on the top giving it a hobo-feel. The inside is lined with cotton fabric, has a pocket for the phone/keys and a pen slot. I used a magnetic snap for the closure. Dimensions are 11"(h) x 11"(w) x 2.5"(gusset). Strap is 21" from end to end. There's plan to extend the length of the straps for a cross-chest option.

Taking it from the French ladies I see in the Metro, it's actually quite fitting to use the Slouch Bag and Reversible Tote (on the crook of your elbow) of the same fabric together for work. The tote fits a foldable umbrella, reading material and even a trenchcoat comfortably. I think I'll be making a pair for my son's class teacher! For her books and pens....
