Cake Connection

I should meet up with my friend Shyam more often! Every time we meet, I'd go home feeling relaxed after an after
noon of venting and catching up on what's been going on in our respective lives. It's been ages since we last saw each other, and she's been pretty busy too with the opening of Cake Connection, her new baking and cake decorating shop. So last weekend, on the way back from our hotel stay, B and I decided to pop into her store to say hello!

It was my first visit to her store and I was so impressed by the whole set-up. I was already wowed by the fact that a close friend of mine actually owns a store but to actually be inside her cake shop and soak up reality, was truly something else!

Shyam and I have been friends since we were 13, which makes her my longest-standing friend! After leaving school, we went our separate ways; she pursued her studies in Australia, while I was in the US. Even then, we kept in touch via letters and I don't mean emails, I'm talking about the traditional air mail, where I actually had to write and not type, the letter myself! ;)

She's also the one friend I can truly depend on. She has a good head on her shoulders, which she is not afraid to use, especially when it comes to reprimanding me whenever she feels I'm going overboard with anything in my life. And now that she has finally taken the big step to open up her own business, I'm just so happy and excited for her! After years of working for others, she finally gets to be her own boss, doing something that she truly loves with the opening of Cake Connection in July this year.

I was very impressed by the variety and quality of the premier cake decorations available in
Cake Connection, which is located in Jaya One, PJ by the way. It felt like being in a cosy candy store, surrounded by all the adorable and colourful decorations in the store. Unlike your usual cake decorating store, Cake Connection goes a step beyond to ensure not only the highest quality products, but a wider range of variety in its unique imported cake decorations and accessories. With more than 500 products available, you will definitely find all your baking and cake decorating needs right here at Cake Connection. From Royal Icing Decorations and Exquisite Sugarpaste Flowers to Assorted Candles and unique Cake Boards & Boxes, Cake Connection is your friendly one-stop baking & cake decorating speciality store, run by two good friends, Shyamala & Nancy.

When I arrived at the store, Nancy was busy attending to customers so Shyam gave me the grand tour! Aside from selling imported baking and cake decorating accessories, Cake Connection also offers baking and cake decorating courses in a friendly & cosy setting.

The cosy kitchen where courses are held

Courses offered include Cupcake Fun 101, Icing on the Cake, Junior Cupcake Fun, Exploring Wedding Cake Decorating and Chocolate Indulgence. Hmmm, I love the sound of the last one! Currently, there is a special Hari Raya class for those interested in making this lovely 'Basket of Roses' cake, which would make a beautiful Raya centrepiece or as a gift for your friends and family. Click here for more details.

'Basket of Roses' Cake

Shyam & Marzie

Whether you're a novice or professional
baker or simply a blogger like me who loves to bake a Chocolate Mug Cake every once in a while, do stop by Cake Connection and see what the fuss is all about. As a special gift for Mariuca's readers, visitors who spend minimum RM30 in a single receipt at Cake Connection will receive this adorable Fairy Birthday Candles FREE! Limited to the first 30 Mariucans so drop by today and say hello to Shyamala & Nancy. Don't forget to let them know Mariuca sent you in order to receive your FREE gift! :)

Before I sign off, I'd like to say CONGRATULATIONS to Shyamala & Nancy once again and wish them the best of luck and success in their new venture! And hey, it's already Friday peeps, so have a great weekend and I'll see you next week! :)

Hola LJ! Beautiful kan? There were several others, but this pic turned out the best.

Oh me, no time to take baking course la he he, some more got no oven at home. Perhaps later, when we finally do get one, then can consider joining. I like the idea of Junior Cupcake Fun, cause u can send ur kids there, but for us, tak kan la nak hantar our meowies? He he he! :):):)

Mariuca September 05, 2008 4:25 PM

Yay, thanks Emila! S & N did an awesome job to make the shop as cosy as possible, and it shows! It's really great la, and I'm so impressed with everything there! If only I'm a regular baker, for sure I'll make this my only cake shop! :):):)

Mariuca September 05, 2008 4:28 PM

Hi Nick! Oh that was my first visit to Jaya One too, which is quite happening btw! Got so many eating outlets there, so it made a nice change from our usual side of PJ.

Of course u should go there with wifey, make her happy for the day, being surrounded by the delicious and pretty accessories! Spend RM30 and mention "Mariuca" to get ur free candles okay? :):):)

Mariuca September 05, 2008 4:30 PM

Thanks so much Kim! I'm just so proud and pleased for my friend! It has always been her dream to open up her own cake store, so this is like perfection for her. Glad u enjoyed the pics, I love them too, esp the pink and white cupcakes! :):):)

Mariuca September 05, 2008 4:33 PM

Nessa!! Oh u must visit Cake Connection, I'm sure you'll be very pleased at what u can find there! Some stuff I never knew existed and they're all so funky and cute. Plus so many choices too! Some more it's in PJ, as in our area he he! ;)

Hey, maybe u can check out the Raya course, cause that Basket of Roses cake sure looks pretty kan?

The candles are free for the first 30 Mariucans who visit CC. Just spend RM30, and mention Mariuca for ur free candles, hurry! :):):)

Mariuca September 05, 2008 4:34 PM

Exactly Bono! Work hard added with some creativity, will spell success, one way or another! Good luck to S and N again! You ladies rock! :):):)

I've a tag for you here...have a nice weekend Mariuca!!!

Mariuca September 06, 2008 3:54 PM

WOW that sounds cool Metz! Have fun and come back with a great post for us. Good to see u're keeping busy and that connection is holding up well for u. Have a great weekend! :):):)

Mariuca September 06, 2008 3:59 PM

Morning LJ! Imagine Pheebs pakai chef hat, for sure cute gila! :)

Of coz I'm angry to da max with D, but what do u think abt K la? Confidently pushing N to tell B abt the baby, and calling him again that night to make sure! Padan muka kena slap, I actually clapped out loud ha ha!

I'm so lega that S caught D and O doin stuff!! How many times oredi she made out with O, then pushed him away cause "she can't do it" it seems... still betrayal enuff right? I hate her and my only concern is that E might just forgive her, know what I mean?! :(:(:(

eastcoastlife September 06, 2008 4:00 PM

So you would be trying out more recipes and maybe attending their courses? You might need to start a food blog then. hehe...

And LadyJava has another place to get her ingredients for baking. :)

LadyJava September 06, 2008 5:22 PM

hahaha... definitely cute giler...lolzz

OMG! Did you see the smile on K face when she told BK (Brooke) about how happy she was the baby is in the third semester?? I would have slapped her then AGAIN! How can they be so confident BR (bridget) would accept this baby..dah lah raising J who is also her brother.. now they want her to help raise the baby who would be her anak sedara.. crazy or what??

And Oh YEAH... S caught them all right.. if I were S I would have confronted her there and then.. and she how she defends herself.. and O.. OMG.. "Eric loves you.. he wont want you to be lonely" I want to curse I tell you right about now... nasib baik tak boleh..lolzz

What kind of rationale is that.. kasi lah org tu mati dulu kalau ye pun..ish.. geram ni.. but gtg now... talk to you 2nite ya :)

Lega sikit dah biatch..lolz

Farah Deen September 06, 2008 9:46 PM

GP, I am impressed with the pretty cake shop too, but this one is no ordinary cake shop. From the pictures, they look more like 'customised, personalised' and the ones Kimora Lee Simmons would love. LOL Bet she would make gorgeous ones for weddings and special functions. It's great to have old friends like this right- I mean, you share a lot of things together, to me, they are like siblings.

oh yeah, those days when you have to write (mostly using airmail- those envelopeless letters) LOL, and sometimes, letters take more time to reach than they should. :)

ps: I've been wanting to say this since the last entry about your birthday- you look so cute and pretty! :) commercial look tu! :)

Mariuca September 06, 2008 9:50 PM

Nice to see u here Bono, happy Sat to you! :)

Mariuca September 06, 2008 9:56 PM

Hi Rozella, I think this is so cool too! Some more my friend loves to bake, so this was like a dream come true for her YAY! :):):)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious September 06, 2008 10:09 PM

hello lovely, am here to drop off AGP! :) ok now, back to my makeover! hehe

Enjoy yr evening!

Mariuca September 06, 2008 10:18 PM

Hey Monica, thanks for coming by. I love cupcakes too and the ones here look yummy yeah? Have fun checking out CC and thanks for the tag sweetie! :):):)

Mariuca September 06, 2008 10:35 PM

ECL! Me baking? Start a food blog some more? He he he!! One fine day perhaps, for now I'm just happy baking my mug cake once in a while and managing 2 blogs LOL! :)

Mariuca September 06, 2008 10:42 PM

LJ LJ!! Of coz I was angry to da max to see her smug expression, and I still can't believe how tak malu she is! Konon-konon she is sacrificing her life la, it's ok if she dies so long as she brings N's baby into the world!

D is gonna use the excuse that she was vulnerable, and just got attacked by Pam, so scared and lonely, that's why "it" happened! I hope Eric will go back to S yeeha! It's abt time the Forresters reunite he he! :):):)

LadyJava September 06, 2008 10:47 PM

Tulah. sacrifice konon.. what if the baby kluar defect or something kan? kan kecian.. coz she's on so many medication right.. and the part when she said..."we gonna bring a baby into this world" like as it the world needs her baby like that...podah!!

And OMG, Nick would break the news to B right after their love session? How cruel is that?? Someone ought to lock him up somewhere and throw away the keys lah!!

Pity Eric lah.. the first name he called out was D kan? He for sure wont be able to take it.. and D.. vulnerable konon.. i never knew s*x can be cure for loneliness.. really lah she is a s*x addict kot..heheh

Mariuca September 06, 2008 10:56 PM

Hi Farah! As always u have a very sharp eye, and yes, this is a speciality store, everything is so posh and nice, but they're reasonably priced too. Cool kan to own a store like this?

Of coz dearie, Shyam is like my oldest friend, we've gone through many bittersweet moments together so it's really cool to see her taking this step. Wish her all the luck in her new biz! :)

PS. Awwww thanks sweetie *blush*! It must be the month of August, told ya I love it! :):):)

Mariuca September 06, 2008 11:02 PM

Hi Jean, thanks for dropping AGP here! You have a nice weekend too and I can't wait to see ur new look woo hoo! :)

Mariuca September 06, 2008 11:14 PM

LJ, notice how she always says we we we, so N got no choice but to get on track with HER freaking decision, bossy and selfish and again I have to say this, tak lawa he he he! ;)

I pity Steph, cause when E woke up he called out D but it was her instead, come on Steph, bring the Forresters back together!

Eh, oso wan to ask u how did Sucre and Bilek (not sure spelling) get out of prison again on PB???

LadyJava September 06, 2008 11:19 PM

Three cheers for S and E...

K tu now suddenly all decked up in makeup and new hair do kan?? but still tak lawa..lolz.. alah N wanted her to end the pregnancy but she yg degil.. selfish.. that's all i can say..

Belleck and Sucre escaped because the prisoners started a riot causing a fire to break out so everyone escaped as well it lah Sara masih hidup!! cian kan dia.. kena pukul and all :(

Mariuca September 06, 2008 11:31 PM

Dat's why LJ!! Menyampah, konon-konon it's the seri from her pregnancy la, podah! :(

N oso so stupid, suddenly he 's not the usual tough guy he is, why must follow everything K says, freaker la she I tell you! Eh, today's ep not yet out right? I can't wait to see S tell the kids and E what she saw woo hoo!

I see, so Belleck and Sucre are still fugitives la right? Wonder what's gonna happen to Gretchen. I don like the new black guy, he looks so mean and bengis tak bertempat he he! ;)

LadyJava September 06, 2008 11:38 PM

Yeah.. suddenly N is all wimpy and all obedient with K.. pelik kan..

Eh yesterday 5th no epi lah.. dun know why but that is what the lady that owns the channel is telling all the viewers.. same like last monday also no epi kan? so now got to wait till tuesday lah...:(

Yeap.. even Mahone and Michael also still fugitive kan? only Linc and LJ jer your totally exonerated..

Grenchen is very hardy lady.. and that black guy.. mmg scary.. i mean I wud not want to see what he did to Mahone's family... seram!

Tina September 07, 2008 12:06 AM

see your here again with the cakes! ok then ill have the roses in baskets cake please. or maybe i can take a bite from all of them and put them back rofl

Mariuca September 07, 2008 12:15 AM

Aiya, was waiting the whole day! But nevermind, I'm gonna watch SATC movie tonight on DVD, finally! Have u seen it yet? :)

Linc is still panas baran, sikit-sikit defensive, Michael is soooooo much better he he! But I like the new cop guy lol! :)

LadyJava September 07, 2008 12:19 AM

SATC? Am blur!! lolzz

Yeah.. linc is the same.. saja jer.. everything he leaves to Michael.. its like " i hope you have a plan Michael"... hehe.. blur lah he..the new cop?? hehe.. he looks blur to me too..hehe..

Michael is the best.. did you see how he withstand the pain during the removal of his tattoo... but oh no.. what's that nose bleed about ... so worried for him lahh...

Mariuca September 07, 2008 12:30 AM

Oooops sorry, Sex and the City!!! Finally got the DVD, supposedly clear, so gonna watch tonite woo hoo! ;)

I love the new cop when he played Phoebe's BF in Friends, and he was oso in Boston Public, now he's in PB, cool la dia! :)

Yeah, why did he not want to take the jab for the tattoo removal, sakit tu! But he's still a cutie lolz! ;)

LadyJava September 07, 2008 12:33 AM

oh yeah I watched it already.. and I loved it!!! you'll enjoy it too...

Oh no wonder lah he looks so familiar.. he's ok lah.. just not my type...lolzz

Michael kan hero.. mana main bius2...lolzz!!! cutie pie.. tetap!!!

Mariuca September 07, 2008 12:34 AM

Ha ha, more cakes for u to enjoy then Tina! I really like the basket of roses cake, it looks so sweet and real. :):):)

Mariuca September 07, 2008 12:37 AM

I'm so glad SATC came out with a movie kan? Can't wait to watch later! :)

Of coz, Michael kena maintain macho and he's doing a good job at it too!

Alex still looks like he's on drugs but glad he's still around. :)

LadyJava September 07, 2008 12:58 AM

Alex.. yeah.. poor thing kan.. he went back to be with his wife and kid only to find that they were murdered already...sigh...

Eh see the thing you request me to do.. ok or not??

Mariuca September 07, 2008 1:04 AM

Yeah pity Alex, why can't Linc just leave him alone? Wan to settle stuff later it seems! :(

Ok, checking ur email now! ;)

Anonymous,  September 07, 2008 8:29 PM

Hi Mariuca!
Just dropping by on Sunday before church. I don't know if I mentioned that we have a cake lady nearby in Far Hills, New Jersey...she made an amazing multi-layer cake for Rex's birthday party a few years back and she always does something special for London and Maddie's birthdays.

Lin September 07, 2008 10:04 PM

Wow so cool! Thanks for the review! I will definitely stop by her store as I am in a baking phase right now, especially cupcakes. Yup, i've jumped in the bandwagon. I'm excited to hear that finally there is a decent store that sells good decorating stuff.

BTW Happy Belated Birthday!

eastcoastlife September 07, 2008 10:35 PM

Mug cake is all you can bake!? haha... ok. *waits for Mariuca's mug cake*

Restnrileks September 07, 2008 11:52 PM

Oh! mariuca,

ini adalah satu penderaan kepada nafu lapar kepada kek..

wah, itu cake semua nampak begitu memukau-mukau bagaikan dipanggil-panggil oleh laungan nyanyian merdu ikan duyung.. ""

bila ketagihan kek, i would normally just run to Secret recipes.. hehehe.. nasib baik rumah dekat dengan kedai lebih dekat dari masa setanak nasi.. huhu

happy sunday yerr..

bonoriau September 07, 2008 11:55 PM

I have to say, I hate all the Logans!! Well, not BK's children but just the siblings. BLERGH!! And yeah, D is so easy! Yuck!

I just need to make sure i've install everything (ie; socialspark itk, nuffnang ad, etc). So, if you see me mengomen'ing less, then you'll know what am i up do! :)

J@n!ce September 08, 2008 11:41 AM

I'm sourcing for cake for Zac at the moment. Those looked really terrific & your good friend is the owner. How cool. I love the look of the shop. So neat with those sweet looking candles & display :)

Adrian September 08, 2008 12:02 PM

Alakazam! Boy do I wish I were a real Genie sometimes LOL!!

GP, You friend's cake shop looks pretty interesting! Wifey wants to learn how to bake after we finish our studies so this will be a good place for her to go to get started!

I like the mouse cake, reminds me of an old storybook I once read when I was very very young...Katie the Country Mouse LOL

Cheers GP!

So sorry to hear about your computer...I've just ordered two backup drives to make sure that next time this happens to me (and it will, it is just a question of when), I'll be in better shape.
Hope you're back on track soon.
Night Night!

Shemah September 08, 2008 3:26 PM

I haven't upgraded my ram yet so watching online is totally out. And my older bro is d/l ing complete seasons of his shows that my shows take a backseat. He'll freak if he sees me d/l-ing B&B! LOL!

I just read the archive episodes if I wanna keep up! hahaha..

OMG! I can't wait for Bridget to crack!! Is Ridge still engaged to Brooke or are they married?? OR has he left her for whats-her-name perfume maker?? LOL!

faeryrowan September 08, 2008 7:22 PM

The treats look delicious, and I'm pretty sure they are. Too bad I'm not from Malaysia, I would have been a regular customer! I'm a sucker for anything sweet. Thanks for sharing this though. It's nice of you to offer a treat for your readers at Cake Connection. Congratulations to your friend Shyam for this wonderful business venture!

Mariuca September 09, 2008 1:36 AM

Hi Jean, thanks for dropping your EC here today! Okay, good luck with ur makeover sweetie, it's gonna be tough and perhaps frustrating now, but the end result should be worthwhile yeah? :):):)

Mariuca September 09, 2008 1:38 AM

Happy cake searching Janice, hope u find another good one for Zac, like last year!

And thanks for 'visiting' CC here, maybe u get to visit for real on your next trip to M'sia! :):):)

Mariuca September 09, 2008 1:41 AM

YAY, GK is finally here, we've missed u tons over here, so happy to see u today! *Genie Hugz*

Oh good for wifey, I'm sure you guys will be pleased with CC. From service to products, you will def go home feeling all fuzzy inside he he!

Have fun at school GK, and thanks for coming by today! :):):)

Mariuca September 09, 2008 1:43 AM

Roxy! Ha ha I know what u mean, I am bracing myself for another restore session, it's only a matter of time! ;)

I got most of my stuff back up and work is a bit relaxed today, so that gave me more time to work on my PC. Am almost back to normal. Happy Tuesday Roxy! :)

Mariuca September 09, 2008 1:45 AM

Ha ha ha Shemah!! Every Tues-Sat, I'll be happily DL Boldie, but I have my own PC and B has his own with a separate ISP, so DL is no prob for me!

I used to eat the archives, but of coz watching the real thing is so much better! R is still with B and the perfume-maker (Ashley) has been pretty quiet lately. I prefer R to be with A, B is so yesterday's news LOL! ;)

Mariuca September 09, 2008 1:46 AM

I see you here Bono, thank you for dropping ur EC today! :)

Mariuca September 09, 2008 1:47 AM

Sushi September 09, 2008 12:59 PM

Marzie, if Grandma C and Mama lived in Malaysia, they'll never look anywhere else for baking and cake decorating needs. This is the perfect place,congrats to your friends who did an amazing job of putting this shop together and all it has to offer the cake lovers.
Wonderful artwork, and I've seen Mama and Grandma struggle with the icing! Great pictures of you and the cakes, all look lovely together!

Anonymous,  September 09, 2008 2:54 PM

Cake shop is such a happy places. With colourful cakes, decorations and thoughtful people around getting the thoughtful cake for their special someone, what's not to love?!

HEllo, first time visiting your blog. :)

Mariuca September 09, 2008 4:14 PM

That's great to hear Sushi, thanks for ur vote of confidence in CC and my pal! She loves to bake herself, so this was a very appropriate biz venture for her. I think I'm like mama and Grandma C, or even worse cause I've never done any icing stuff before he he!

Mariuca September 09, 2008 4:16 PM

Hi CC, thanks and welcome to Mariuca's blog! :)

I love checking out new cake stores and this one is extra special for so many reasons. Hope u enjoyed ur tour of Cake Connection and have a good one! :)

emilayusof September 10, 2008 9:59 AM

emilayusof September 10, 2008 10:00 AM

Mariuca September 10, 2008 5:19 PM

Hi Emila, that's a great idea! Currently, they only take small orders but I'm sure they'll be better equipped in Dec! Have fun Yassin! :):):)

Lin September 11, 2008 10:23 AM

mangosteenskin September 12, 2008 12:00 PM

u know what mariuca...these kind of shops boleh buat saya pusing...pusing...dalam kedai walaupun x berniat beli apa2. some sort of trapped or lost, hehe. i use the time wandering around to find ideas about anything. when somebody come and ask "can I help you?"...then only i can see the exit and quickly take a flee. haha! well, that usually happens.

Mariuca September 12, 2008 3:42 PM

LOL! I know what u mean Manggis, usually I pusing-pusing without buying anything in pharmacies, love them! So many cool stuff u can find that I usually end up buying stuff that I got no use for just yet he he! :):):)

Faisal Admar September 13, 2008 1:29 AM
