Pleat cake for Tatler Weddings

Dear followers of my blog (yes, all four of you), Apologies for not updating for a while but I really haven’t got anything funny to say anymore. Ever since I started making wedding cakes for friends and family, drama has been sucked out of my life. I’ve no time to experiment with new recipes, I’ve

Ikebana wedding cake

Okay, I’m really proud of this one because it is a true Crummb original. Not copied from Martha Stewart. Not adapted from a cake from some wedding blog. But completely conjured up by moi! Well, alright, with some help from Mr Armani. I saw this photo in the papers a few months ago. It was

Ling & Douglas’ wedding cake

Terror has a new name: Stripes. In the past, the one thing anyone could do to flood me with dread and trepidation is to ask me to make a birthday cake for a boy. Now, it is to make a cake with stripes. Sure, they look harmless. Just cut straight lines and paste them on.

Vera Wang wedding cake

I didn’t wear a Vera Wang gown at my wedding (because I couldn’t bloody afford one). So as a bizarre form of vicarious reaction, I will spend the rest of my life making up for it by making Vera Wang cakes. And this is the first one. E first approached me wanting a wedding cake

The Johnny Depp wedding cake

Bride-to-be N had a pretty unusual request. She had ordered a wedding cake topper, and the cake I was to make had to accommodate its size and style. When she emailed me a photo of it, I gasped back, So Tim Burton! It’s like you’re marrying Johnny Depp! Absolutely adorable. The topper sat on quite

Randee Cake – Her World Magazine

Ivan's wife cake(2)

C’mon, tell me you’re dying to know how I got my very first gig on the latest issue of Her World. You don’t wanna know? Well I’m gonna tell you anyway, because while I’ve seen my name in print many times before, I’ve never been as excited as I was about this one. Dylan from

Re-introducing… Crummb!

SINGAPORE (August 17): In a formidable show of people power, Crummb is elected as the official name of TPL’s bakery. Crummb, the name of the former journalist’s baking blog of three years, steamrolled its arch-rival Crumb with a huge margin by grabbing 35 votes. The latter name, leaner but not meaner, managed to capture a

Taking a vote

I am feeling like an absolute idiot. After announcing in my previous post that my bakery will be called Crumb with one ‘m’, I am thinking maybe I’ll go back to Crummb after all. Why? Because two friends have reacted with rather loud ‘But why?!!’s (with two exclamation marks). So I explained to them that it is in keeping with my brand

A&R’s Tiffany blue wedding cake

Here’s the thing about making wedding cakes. Baking and decorating a 9/7/5-inch three-tier is like tackling Mount Everest right there at your kitchen table. But once it’s conquered and displayed at a big venue, it can suddenly shrink into a blink-and-you-miss backside pimple. Case in point: the cake I made for my cousin Ricky’s wedding last week. The venue was One 15 Marina Club in

W&A’s confetti wedding cake

This is what I’ve learnt from making the cake for my cousin Ambrose’s wedding last month. No matter what you wear or how stylishly you’re turned out, a wedding cake maker will only emerge from the occasion looking like a drenched chicken. This is what happened. Ambrose and his adorable wife, Wendy, had wanted a really
