Being a baker myself, I realized one thing, I have become even more fussier than ever when it comes to serving my guests/customers with my products.
I have created a borderline at where my baked goods should have tasted like, hence I prefer quality than quantities.
For my engagement, I do know I wanted a desserts buffet. I know friends and relatives love my baked goods, so I worked my ass off to get one. I started baking two days before, with the cookies. Then the cakes and cupcakes. And on the day itself I made trifle and pavlova.
Alhamdulillah, the desserts gone after 15 minutes of serving! Everyone kept on complaining of it weren't enough. But seriously, if only we had a bigger fridge! Haha.
That evening, before the engagement, I arranged all the cake stands, plates and everything on kitchen table, asked my cosuins and friends to help me to do the deco on the pavlova and trifle and tell them what to serve later. And due to time constraint and since I got sick few days before that, I decided to do a minimal (or more like none at all) decoration for the desserts buffet! Hehe. Whatever, all I want was to serve good desserts for the guests.
Moist chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting (luckily there were some left from the rainbow cake) and vanilla buttercream.
Trifle and pavlova finished first. Alhamdulillah everyone loves it and couldn't stop complementing all the desserts! I think I have all the recipes from previous posts ;)
Even one of mom's colleagues said the desserts deserve more than 5 stars! Even better than the hotel's chef! *teary eyes*
I am overwhelmed!
