A Purple Wedding

My brother-in-law (BIL) got married last Saturday hence the super busy me. My mother-in-law went nuts on everything purple and got everything in Barney's color but with a nicer hue. Luckily it (the color purple) happens to my favorite color as well so I didn't mind playing along at all.

My contribution towards my BIL's wedding was a purple (notice that I'm using this color a lot? Please bear with me ya) cupcake tier with 95 assorted chocolate moist cupcakes on it. Plus I took the liberty of putting myself in-charge of the newlywed's dining table (sounds like gila kuasa kan but in truth fact was nobody wanted to do it. My mom ended up helping me serve the bride's family because not a single of B's relative was in sight to help out except for his Mak Long).

Me being the perfectionist, made sure that everything went in order as planned (ke adhoc planning. Beats me). Lets just say, by the end of the evening, I was pooped out so much so that I had to send Zara home with my brother because she just couldn't bear the heat, people and environment. Kesian dia.

Here are some pictures from the wedding.

The hantaran cake that I made for my BIL. I'm still a beginner when it comes to playing with fondant. I had help with the flowers though. Bought it ready-made at Bake With Yen. I figured that it'll save time, energy and money rather than I go bonkers trying to twist, turn and roll the sugarpaste into flowers that I don't think will be pleasing to the eye.

The 5-tiered purple cupcake tower which I made myself. It took me 3 hours from start to finish to complete this cupcake tower. I ended sleeping at 3 am on the wedding day with blisters on my finger from handling the hot glue gun.

Pengantin lama hihihi... By the way, B is wearing his baju hantaran that I gave him 7 years ago. It still fits albeit a bit tight around the waist line. Come to think of it, I should have worn my baju hantaran as well.

With my dear Mom and two nephews, Hariz and Iwan.
