This cake was ordered by Hanee for her wedding on 11 Dec 2010. She has also ordered another hantaran cake (the one with a lot of pink roses) and 2000 pcs of cupcakes as door gifts. Her mother, Cikgu Hamidah, promised to pick up the hantaran cake around 11 a.m. on Friday but due to miss understanding and unfortunate events, my sis has to send the cake to her house in Desa Harmoni.
We thought of assembling the above cake before going to her house on Saturday but when my sis went to her house on Friday, we changed our plan! Her house is situated on the hilly side of Desa Harmoni, we have to go through at least two sharp slope before reaching her house. I asked two of my assistant to come with us and carry the cake to her house.
When we were assembling the cake, there was one Auntie kept asking us, "Dik, tak de bunga merah ke, riben merah ke? Tak berserilah!" ("Sis, can you put some red flowers or ribbons? The cake look so dull!"). My sis - the PR at the time just said "Pengantin yg nak mcm ni! Nanti pengantinnya marah!" ("the bride is the one who asked for this kind of cake! We dare not go against her wish!"). In a small town as Kluang, Johor, a white themed wedding or wedding cake is unheard of especially in Malay community. This is our second white wedding cake actually. The first one was ordered by a Chinese friend who had to assemble the cake herself since we have to attend our brother's wedding in Pekan, Pahang.
