It was a pleasant surprise to me when the bride, Jia Ying, daughter of Janet, my golf "kaki", asked me if I could bake cupcakes for her wedding cocktail reception. I was both excited and a little anxious as this was my first time baking cupcakes for such an important occasion - a wedding.I started trawling the internet and books for ideas on how to frost and decorate the cupcakes. Pink is the favourite color of the bride. Thus I decided on a white and pink theme. Next, what cupcake flavours should I bake? That's any easy one - good old vanilla and chocolate cupcakes to go with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream. The recipes are taken from Rose Beranbaum's Rose's Heavenly Cakes book. The cupcakes turned out to be soft, moist and flavourful, especially the vanilla ones.

Does the frosting look like a caterpillar? It looks like one to me, except it is not a green caterpillar. Haha ...........
How about a cup of freshly brewed coffee with a slice of coffee swiss roll on a lazy afternoon? This coffee roll is frosted and filled with coffee-flavoured swiss meringue butter cream. Definitely for coffee addicts.
