I recently found out that an old primary schoolmate of mine is getting married in December. He told me that his fiancee was thinking of giving away some pre-wedding cupcakes to her colleagues. She had in mind the Chinese character 'hei', which signifies double happiness - a character commonly associated with Chinese weddings. Prior to this, I'd not written much in Chinese before, let alone pipe in buttercream. So with much trepidation, I proceeded to practice and practice with leftover buttercream. I got it right from the get-go, much to my mom's and my surprise.
Here are half of the cupcakes which were presented that day.
Upon their request, I created slightly different designs to differentiate the three flavours of cupcakes.
I'm incredibly proud of these beauties. Mostly because I was able to make a special couple really happy, and make my mom proud of my rudimentary piping of Chinese characters.
