New York, New York

'By night when it covers with darkness. By the day when it spreads its brightness. By Him who created the male and female, surely your efforts are diverse (different in aims and purposes). There is the one who gives, who is mindful of God, who testifies to goodness. We will make smooth for him the path of ease.'

Al-Layl : 1 -7

I never thought the day would come when I'd be saying, I'm here, in New York!!!! (contain your excitement woman, hahaa). There's much to say about this city and I've only spent a day here, so I will leave that for another post when I let it all out. 

This trip is a gift from my sister to me because she knows just how much I (well along with all my other sisters) have been wanting to experience this city. Traveling abroad is so much more than seeing places. You'll experience things and hopefully grow a little more from the people and things you encounter. And for that inshaAllah I'll be forever grateful to her and my family and friends who are utterly generous with me.

So here's to people in our lives that are ever so thoughtful to gift us with things that are so meaningful. Allah's generosity manifests in ways we can't even imagine. :)

Here's To An Extra Special Day

I hope whatever we have tried our best to do will be accepted and multiplied ten folds by Allah swt, the Most Loving, Most Merciful. :)

Saturday in The Studio

After our early cake delivery this morning, mum and I decided to pick up some dessert before we headed back to the studio to continue with tomorrow's wedding cake (which is what all these flowers are for. Oh how I wish they were mine to keep!). Safe to say working today in the studio was extra beautiful with the subtle scent of these roses and the view of soothing shades of purple.

So anyway, I just have to share with you guys out there who enjoy dessert as much as I do, my latest favourite from a newly opened cafe nearby, Bowery Petit, which is where I picked up my Raspberry choux à la crème seen up there. I had one last night and one again today. And I probably will need one again tomorrow, hahaa. If you decide on heading there, their signature new york pizza is delicious when you get it right out of the oven. And you MUST try their frozen custard ice cream as well, yummm! And, while you're at it, their vanilla and blackcurrant macaron makes the perfect pairing with your cup of latte. Okay, I should stop talking about desserts now and get some shut eye. 

Have a good night guys and sweet dessert dreams! :)

Travel Withdrawals...

Oh just me? I read somewhere that one of the signs of someone experiencing travel withdrawals is you visit and start to convert your country's currency into the currency of other countries while day dreaming about hopping a flight. That's me right there, haha. (although, a little frustrating than our Ringgit is at a down low, we shall not let that bring our spirits down yeah) 

Okay fine, back to work then. Have a lovely week head guys!

Counting down the days till my next travel adventure!


I have been wanting to make a marble cake ever since I got myself a marble laptop cover, but never had the time to do it in my own free time. So I was super excited to get an email from this birthday girls husband (another one of our lovely lovely regulars) requesting for a simple Marble cake. I was smiling from ear to ear excited to make this one! Thank God for others who share the same taste as you.

With a little bit of gold accent and a statement flower to top it of (because what's a Gateaux cake without sugar flowers, hehee), it was ready to be handed over as a surprise cake. :)
