  1. OH MY GOSH Pang you keep outdoing yourself!!!!!! This is SUCH a gorgeous cake–I envy your frosting prowess 🙂 I have tried several times to make perfectly frosted cakes but I just have no patience for it…I like my layer cakes messy and sloppy, apparently :/ I loved the stories about your mom! She sounds like fun and I love that you and your sister shared bday cakes…must make it all the better now that you can make your own cake anytime now, right? 🙂 LOVE THIS CAKE!


    • Oh my Erika, you are such a sweet person!!! Your comment ALWAYS makes my day. If I let you in on my little secret, will you promise not to tell anyone 🙂 The thing is I am not good at frosting the cake either, and that is why most of my cakes have “decoration,” i.e. pocky, meringue etc. I, too, am envy of people who can make a perfect frosted cake (with no fondant involved). And I do LOVE LOVE LOVE your cakes, no need to worry about anything, Erika. 🙂 I am glad you like my mom’s stories because you will surely be hearing more about her. Thank you SO MUCH for your comment. I am SUPER happy to hear that. 🙂


      • Hahaha! Pang, you are so sweet. I seriously doubt that you are bad at frosting cakes, but nice try 😉


  2. Loved reading about your mom! And this cake sounds amazing! Wow! And it is absolutely gorgeous!!!


    • Thank you SO SO MUCH, Lori. I am so glad you love my mom’s stories; she is so tease-able 🙂
      So happy that you like the cake… so happy to have you here 🙂


  3. Seriously the most beautiful and delicious cake ever!


    • Jules, when are you coming to SF? I want to make you a cake 🙂
      Thank you, my friend 🙂


      • Did you say cake? I’ll be right there!!! 😀



  4. Welcome to Fiesta Friday, Pang! I thought for sure a professional baker had made this cake when I saw it. So gorgeous! Then, I visited your flower site, and I thought for sure a professional floral designer must have run the blog. Everything is beautiful! Professional or not, you are obviously super talented. So nice meeting you and having you at the fiesta! 🙂


    • awww…. You are SO SWEET. Thank you SO SO MUCH for such a wonderful comment. I am glad to be part of FF as well, and I hope to participate often 🙂

      SO HAPPY you like my blogs, Angie. It’s SO wonderful to meet you 😀


  5. Pang, this is so beautiful! I love the cake but also the styling and angles.

    A mother’s practicality is both admiral and hilarious at the same time. I love to think fondly at my mother’s resourcefulness when we were kids.

    I went through a short-lived goth phase in my teenage years. Years later when my husband and I told my parents we were getting married, she said that as long as it wasn’t a goth wedding, she was happy. My husband is not goth at all and I hadn’t dressed goth for 10 years but funny how that stuck in her mind.


    • Oh.. hahahahaha you make me laugh out loud about your goth phase. 😀 It just comes to show that your mom is so sweet, understanding, and accepting of you during goth phase even though she probably was not fond of it at the time. OMG!!! there will be more hilarious stories of my mom to come, and I want to hear more about yours if I can. 🙂

      Thank you so much for your sweet comment, Genie. I am so glad you like the photographs. 🙂


  6. Pang – I am so happy that Jhuls got you to come to the party – this cake is absolutely stunning! You also style beautifully and take gorgeous photos. I’ve also had a quick look at your flower blog – you are one talented lady! Welcome to Fiesta Friday!


    • Thank you SO MUCH for such a wonderful comment, Selma. I am so glad to be part of FF as well. Jhuls always introduces me to a wonderful community/friends, and now you will, too, through your blog. Nice to meet you, Selma 🙂


  7. Aww, this is so sweet – my mom’s birthday also falls on mother’s day every few years 🙂

    I love the stories you tell about your mom – that’s so funny about you and your sister “sharing” a cake!


    • I am so glad you like my mom’s stories, Geanine. She is so hilarious & very tease-able. I am sure you will be hearing more about my super practical mom in the future. Stay tuned 😀

    This cake looks so decadent——and absolutely delicious!


    • Thank you SO MUCH, Margaret. It turned out so well; I hope you try it someday soon 😀


  9. I am absolutely in love with this cake, so delicate and perfect! I am sure that it tastes even better, if that’s possible 🙂 Happy birthday to your mum! I am sure she is a really proud mama


    • Thank you SO MUCH for your sweet comment 😀
      I am SO HAPPY you like the cake. My mom would have loved to know that you wish her a happy birthday as well.
      🙂


  10. Amazing as usual, Pang! I laughed about not being so good in frosting as I feel the same way, too! 😀 But this one? I don’t think so. You always make very beautiful presentation like you actually attended a food styling class, and food photography classes. <3
    I am glad you have joined us on Fiesta Friday #15. Hope you see you again next time. 🙂


    • Awww, Jhuls, I hid the buttercream imperfection under yummy meringues 😀
      Thank you SO MUCH for your sweet comment, my friend. You are ALWAYS so sweet.

      Btw, you always introduce me to the cool community/friends, and I thank you for that. I am going to be part of FF as often as I possible can, I promise 🙂

    I could never make a cake look this magnificant if I had a lifetime to try!!! It’s remarkable, GREAT job…too pretty to eat, but too delicious not to! 🙂
