Cupcakes for Wedding Doorgift

Wedding Doorgift. Really?
Yep, yep. It’s a tradition for well, I’m not sure about Indians, but for Chinese and Malays, yes they give doorgift to guest who come to the wedding. I’m not sure whether we Kadazandusun do it cuz I remember attending two weddings (one of it was my aunt’s), and no, no doorgift received. Hahah! xD But if the wedding reception are held in a hotel, yea I’m sure every guest will get something. I’ve seen chopsticks, fans, cakes and chocolates in a box as a doorgift for weddings held in the hotel. As for Malays, I’m not sure if people still give ‘bunga telur’ (simply boiled egg with some decorations) nowadays. Maybe in kampung (village) where they organize everything by themselves, still? No idea! But I do know that nowadays anything can be a doorgift! For instance, my other sister ordered mini cheese tarts from her friends. My mum… Chocolates, maybe? That is from our family side. The groom side? IDK But I See guests went back with their hand fulls of doorgifts!
As for my sister’s wedding reception, mum suggested making cupcakes (again!). There’s No way I could bring my pastry equipments from Sabah to Malacca so I crossed my fingers and hope there’s some shops that sells everything I need. Jajaja..! Well after few days of searching I finally found it, not far from Ayer Keroh where I’m staying. Thanks to my beloved bf who drove me around to look for it. After I got everything I needed, I started making the cupcakes two days before the wedding. Well I have to. And I’ve already checked everything. Ngahhh! And these are pictures of them in the making. Well I didn’t snap everything step by step cuz it’s tiring to wash my hand everytime I hold my phone.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

This red velvet cupcakes are the best, so far because they keep well and stay moist even if they’re baked two days in advance. Of course, they need proper storage cause the cupcakes can be easily spoiled because of the milk content. Yes Yes believe me. Store them properly if you want to make them in advance.

This is the second time I made red velvet cupcakes. The first time was on my mum’s birthday last October. I made red velvet cake for her birthday in 2011 and she asked me to make another for few times. (Sorry mama!) To my surprise (that time Luls), Ky’s wedding will be held in November so I thought I’ll make her red velvet cupcakes for her wedding. Tried for the first time for mama’s birthday, everything went well except for the color. Ha! Used black chocolate powder, got chocolate cupcakes instead. xP

So I prepared this notecards with a stick. I remember my brother in law’s face full of ‘???’ as he walked past through me when I was in the middle of doing this. Haha xD

So many things happened, and thanks to my beloved bestie Michelle and her sister Agnes we managed to get this done. I didn’t sleep since yesterday doing this and that. At the end, I made a simple picture collage of the whole process of the making of this red velvet cupcakes.

They’re a hit, I guess. Even Haikal said it was good and it reminded him of a red velvet cake he tasted in London. Thank you, the compliment made my day. Ever Since then I’ve been making the same red velvet cupcakes for few times. *^▁^*

Haikal were on holidays, and recently when he came back to KK, he gave us this lovely red velvet cake from London. Merci!! It’s gone within one week!
