Totally stretched

It had been a very very busy & hectic (I noticed I've been using this word often nowadays) week last week. First was the preparation of my 'virgin' project, which was wedding favors for bride & groom Nur Salena & Zulkilfi for the 1st April '07 wedding. They have requested for additional 150 pcs Oreo Cheesecup wedding favors, on top of their existing ones provided by Anggun Andaman.

Preparation started from Wednesday, where cousins Dhiya & Kaiyisah came over to help with the decor, as it was a gold-themed wedding. The containers for the Oreo cheesecups had to be tied with gold ribbons & to stick with gold paper wedding tag.

I really have these few people to thank for all the help they have extended to me to make this a successful project for me:

Cousins Dhiya & Kaiyisah - for being able to make it & helping me with the decor;
Mum - for coming over to cook for us & helping to stick the wedding tag on the covers;
Sis-in-law Ruzana - for designing the wedding tags;
Nur Salena & Zulkifli - for believing in my goodies & giving me this opportunity;

For all those who have helped me indirectly & supporting me - hubby, friends & relatives - a big THANK YOU to you!

Besides the wedding favors, of course I'm taking in my normal cake requests although I've actually blocked out this week to other requests. But I can't bring myself to reject the other requests aince I'm able to squeeze in the time.

There were two requests on Friday, for Salim & mafiaprinses.

Salim requested for a dozen of plain & nut-filled Chocolate Mousse & a dozen of Chocolate Hazelnut & Oreo CheeseCups for his family. He has been recommended by one of my ex-colleague, who have tried my goodies.

Mafiaprinses requested for a platter of 16 pcs brownies with M&Ms, marshmallow & chocolate chips toppers, and a dozen of Oreo & Blueberry CheeseCups.

On Sunday, I woke up early to pack all the cheesecups into the prepared cups to be brought over to Kampong Ubi CC where the wedding was held.

On top of that, packed Syarifah's & Nina's requests as well.

Syarifah aka Mrs F requested for a dozen Blueberry & a dozen Chocolate Hazelnut CheeseCups, of which 6 to be packed separately as an engagement gift for her sister.

After all these, went to sister-in-law's place Ruzana, for my niece's, Safa', 4th birthday celebration. Her birthday falls on 16th March so this was a belated birthday bash. I was planning to make platter of brownies for this occassion but due to time constraint, I only managed to make a dozen Blueberry CheeseCups.

Now I hope to get some rest before starting my bakes again.
P.S: That appointment on Tuesday will be updated at a later date.
