I am fully booked for the month of November and taking a "Crate Break"... Ops! "Cake Break" in December! Closed for the year! Open for commissions for 2016.

Cupcakes for a Mathematics Professor

CakesI received this order from a lovely lady in Dublin, Ireland for 30 cupcakes for her Dad's 60th birthday. Although she cannot make it back to Malaysia for the celebration, she wanted to make the occasion special with some customized cupcakes... See? she really is lovely! Dad is a Mathematics professor, lecturing at a local university. She wanted a standing figurine of her dad in his graduation robe since he never left university, and low relief fondant  motifs of  her mum and grandparents to appear on the cupcakes. Also, to make mum and grandma look "really nice".

Here is Dad in his graduation robe paired with a silver neck tie.


Grandma... described as having gray curly hair and wearing spectacles (omitted the specs because I wanted her to look youthful),

and Grandpa ... with spiky white hair.

Also,  not forgetting his mortar board, calculator, computer, books and math formulas. Since it is still the Chinese New Year season, I added cherry blossoms to the collection.

Cupcake flavor is moist chocolate cake with buttercream icing. Thanks for the order, San Hung. Hope your parents and their guests enjoyed the cupcakes and the celebration lunch.


  1. You are amazing! Love the details of the faces! Wow! and what a great gift!

  2. How mathematics is used in cake baking and cake decorating?
