Sis Geraldine wanted a cake to bless her husband Peter on his 60th birthday. Knowing that he has been in motor workshop business & now seeking ways to the Lord, I selected a verse in Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me:.
His favourite car is BMW so I made a tyre & a tool box bible cover design to represent his profession.

When Hannah Wei Wei Garcia asked if I could make a Star War theme cake for Joshua's birthday cake to celebrate at school, I was .. "hmmmm" .. ok, which character? When she finally came back to confirm it's a Millennium Falcon .. I was again "hmmmm..." ok.
Hahahaha .. that's because I am really not good in doing sci-fi kind of theme cakes, so I quickly did a google search for it and nearly faint when I saw the spacecraft .. I've never watch any Star Wars movie before, so I told her I will make a simple version as the cake was rather small ( about 5" round only ), it's not easy to make such small cake with so many details.
I've tried my best and hope that little Joshua likes it.:D
This cake was made last week upon request from May Senior to bless Ps Sharon at Sunday School with the kids.
The verse from Psalm 23:1 & 5 was given by Ps Wai Leng .. "The Lord is my Shepherd, I have all I need" "You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings."
I made a bible cover with a cute girl's face and a staff-like cup handle as the Shepherd, the "flock of sheep" will be all those Blessing bubbles overflowing from the cup .. all based on her illustration of a flock of sheep with a shepherd for the inspiration on the bible book design.
Cake flavour is coffee marble butter sponge. — withSharon Chong and Soh Wai Leng.
This mini bible cake with an owl was made for Carmen, my youngest brother's friend who came from HK to visit us - praying that she would use the wisdom given by God in the decisions she has to make in her life.
Baked a little bible cake to bless my dearest niece, Cynthia Ow who helped to train nurses to meet the growing needs in Singapore hospitals; she has such gentleness & compassion, always willing to listen, to help and care for others so I chose the verse in Psalms 147:3 and the "plaster" bible cover theme for the cake.
I chose this unconventional theme for a cake design - it look gross and not many people would want it for their b'day celebration. I'm glad that the b'day girl, Wee Leng liked the cake and the verse selected that proclaimed that our Lord Jesus Christ suffered for our salvation and healing. Initially, the design was just a wood grain bible cover with a nail and the scripture but based on suggestions of Mike & Aleo, it was changed to show the stripes & blood effect.
Flavour of the cake was Banana Cinnamon Cake.— with Michael Chan.

The bible cake with doors was designed to celebrate the December birthdays of my hubby's altar ministry team members.

Made this cake in Nov for Mike's office prayer group birthday celebration for Andrew, Alfred & Richard.
Verse taken from Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."

A Coachella theme for my niece Vivian Ng Sin Zhi's 21st birthday cake in 2015.
Seriously, I do not know what is it but she told me to get inspiration from these keywords - flowers, feathers, dreamcatcher, gold and the theme is kinda Bohemian style. Certainly glad that it was what she wanted when she saw the 4-tiered 4-flavoured cake yesterday :.
