The Unbirthday Cake: Happy Birthday Mum!

October 9, 2014


One of the downsides to my job, is the unfortunate scenario when I am away from family and friends, and often at times that are important like weddings, birthdays, parties, etc. While I try my best to be around my family and friends as often as I possibly can, not all can be avoided. This year, I missed my mum’s birthday….so, as a slight consolation, I organized for her to have a birthday cake. And not just any cake mind you (my mum likes the chocolate cake from Michele’s Patisserie every year :P ), my sister has been eyeing the cakes made by Nikki Lee from the Unbirthday Bakery and when she showed me, I knew we HAD to give our mum one of her cakes for her birthday this year. You should hop on over to her website and her instagram to see the creations she makes… but be warned, your keyboard/phone may be saturated in your saliva by the end of the browsing :D

This was the cake we chose for our mum this year. It’s a red velvet cake covered in chocolate and edible flowers :) Isn’t it gorgeous! Thank you Nikki for creating this cake so last minute for us, and major thanks to my sis for logistically organizing this cake to get to mum in time even though I was away, and for the photos (I would have taken the photos myself but its hard to ask a family to NOT eat a cake this pretty and wait for me to return just so I can take photos of it haha!)

The verdict? Mum said it was yummy (yay! most important :D)… and its hard to please her tastebuds past the chocolate palette hehe :)



ps: This lady makes the prettiest macarons too… Jillian and I can’t wait to get our hands on some to sample!! When we do, be sure that we will likely be sharing the photos with all of you! :D

The cake is so pretty! I missed both my parents birthday this year for the first time in my life, in fact my whole family’s, because I’m away from home studying in college :’D Feel your love right there! I only wish I could someday organize things like that too for my family’s big days.
