You're gonna need a lot of luck to find love. Some people have love staring in their faces, yet they are unlucky enough to not notice it.
Shawqi is one of the luckiest kids in town this year as The Mummy decided to bake him birthday cupcakes. The Mummy is not so well versed with all this frosting thingy, thus he gets the runny yet yummylicious chocolate syrup frosting to cover the Peanut Butter Surprise Cupcakes.
The Mummy was planning to save some money so that she could afford to pay for Shawqi's school fees next semester, that's the main reason she decided to have homemade cakes this year. But, when The Mummy brought the two siblings to Jusco to buy the Jalur Gemilangs, they insisted (while stomping their feet) to have afternoon tea at Secret Recipe. The Mummy had no choice and the three of them had 3 slices of the celebrity cakes with fresh juices that rainy afternoon.
That just defeated the purpose of The Mummy slaving herself in the kitchen.
Anyway, the Celebrity Cakes turned to be just so-so. The two siblings were so excited to see the packed Jalur Gemilang Peanut Butter Surpise that night. However, Wazif asked, 'Why so small?'. As usual, The Mummy's answer was 'Kecik lah best...., semua orang boleh dapat satu. Nanti kakak tu tak payah potong-potong...'
They celebrated Shawqi's 5th birthday at the nursery with their friends on Wednesday morning.
Last night The Mummy baked again but this time it was a different recipe (which she stumbled upon in the internet during one of her 'mengular' sessions.)
At first The Mummy thought she could bring the cuppies to office the next day as the previous batch of b'day cuppies were just enough for the kids at nursery. Then the Two Siblings entered the kitchen and insisted (stomping their feet again and again) they get to bring some for their friends, too.
Finally The Mummy had to divide the 30 cuppies into 4 goodie bags. One for the kids, one for Mr. Hubby (who's getting even more famous now in the office... hahaha), one for The Mummy's friend who celebrated her birthday on Tuesday and one for the officemates.
Then, The Mummy cilok one cuppy from one of the goodie bags to have a taste. Hmmmm.... yummmm... the buttercream was one of the best ever. Nothing like the ones usually found in local bakeries. Thanks to WWW!
Note: The Mummy also realized that her piping skills suck. Need to attend one of the cake decorating classes once this Pasir Gudang project is closed.
