7 tier Burgundy Rose Wedding Cake

 Using Burgundy and Ivory as the main color themes, we designed this 7 tier Burgundy Rose round cake for a wedding at the Grand Hyatt. 
We finished each tier with gold rope boarders and added different lace designs on alternating tiers. 
 My favorite part were the  2 tiers with the crinkled fabric draping in ivory fondant.
 And yes, how can I forget the Burgundy Roses.
As much as we like our photos, its so much better in Video.

Congrats to our Wilton Instructors!

Our very own Deelite Wilton Method Instructors Winnie, Jackie & Kelvin were recognized by Wilton for their excellence in teaching the Wilton Method. 
Featured in photo: Winnie, Jackie & Kelvin

 All of our Wilton Instructors are trained and certified by Wilton every year. As we are the only location in Hong Kong certified to  host Wilton certified classes. Every student that learns from us  is registered at the Wilton Head quarters in the states. This is to help ensure that our students are put into the Wilton tracking system so that students can enjoy the flexibility of learning newer Wilton classes where ever they are.
I"m so excited to announce that one of our very own has received the ultimate recognition of achieving the Wilton Hall of Fame. 
Wilton Hall of Fame recognizes all instructors who have successfully taught 1,000 students. This is quite an achievment and such exciting news for us in Deelite as we always from day one wanted to host small and personable classes. We never wanted our students to feel like they were just a number. So you can imagine how many classes Jackie has taught to reach the 1,000 student mark.
Many of you may know Jackie. She has been with us since the early years of Deelite. For some of you who have had the joy of learning from Jackie probably are not surprised by this achievement. Jackie truly represents and embodies the qualities of  a Hall of Fame Wilton Instructor.  Not only has Jackie  achieved the 1,000 student mark, she is also  the first International Wilton Method Instructor to receive an additional recognition for reaching  the 1,500 student mark.

 What I love most about this award is not the number of students Jackie has taught, but the number of lives Jackie has inspired. I personally have seen the excitement of all the students that she has taught and many of her students have gone on to do some amazing things with cake decorating and some of whom have become Wilton Method Instructors too.
Jackie has also taught many of our oversees private students from (Brazil,Macao, Malaysia, India, Thailand, Singapore,&  Taiwan).
Jackie's passion for the art of cake decorating and humility are the qualities that make her an ultimate Wilton Hall of Famer. And yes, there is really a Wilton Hall of Fame wall at the Wilton headquarters.
Jackie's name is on that wall. Isn't that so cool:) Hip Hip Hurray for Jackie!!!

WAIT, we have more Instructor News:)
Two of our new Deelite instructors have also received certificates of recognition from Wilton.
Winnie & Kelvin have received the 100 student certificate. Congratulations Winnie &  Kelvin.
Winnie  teaches both our  English and Chinese classes.
Here is a recent compliment we received via email  for Winnie:
"Having just finished the 1st Wilton course ended this Friday 4 May, I would like to extend my compliment to your staff Winnie who has been fun to work with. Given the patience, energy and cheerful character she has, she has guided our team of seven students through a fun and enjoyable sessions with her in the last four weeks. It has been an intensive four sessions but the group had fun to work with, not to forget our mama Winnie with her cheerful attitude. Thank you Winnie, although it was stressful at times, Katherine and I are very happy with the techniques gained from these four sessions and we (if not just myself) look forward to another class in the future with you."-Stephanie

Kelvin teaches our Chinese classes.
We have seen thousands of cake creations in our classrooms. It brings me so much joy  to see so many people wanting to learn this art form as it is our passion and mission of  Complete Deelite.  In the world of cake decorating, I always say, "one can never learn it all, there is always something new and inspiring to see and experience."That's why I love cake decorating and I know that's why all of our instructors love what they do.
A big congrats to Jackie, Winnie and Kelvin!!!
And an even bigger congratulations to all of our Deelite students.
You are the reason why we luv what we do:)

DIY Mother's Day Glitter Cupcakes!

I've been super dooper excited to make these cupcakes for you.
 These Glitter rose cupcakes are not only easy  & pretty, you may not even wanna give'em to your mother:)
 I was inspired to make these cupcakes after seeing these fabulous silicone molds.
You would have thought the pink silicone mold caught my eye first.
 But it was this turqois mold with the Giant rose that caught my eye. I knew I wanted to make some cupcakes with them.
 Here's what you need:
Starting from the left of photo.
-Buttercream bag (no tip needed , just cut the end)
-Cupcakes  -Fondant (color of your choice)  
-Edible Glitter (optional but oh so fabulous you gotta have it)
- Brush for Glitter  -Silicone Mold.
Now lets get started!
Take a bit of your fondant and pack it into your selected mold design.
Take out any excess fondant from mold before removing the fondant from the imprint mold.
After packing your fondant in, you can peel out your design.
Repeat the same for leaves
Make as many as you want and you're set. See I told you that was easy:) And yes, believe it or not it gets even easier.
Take your buttercream bag and sqeeze out a simple swirl. Your swirl doesn't have to be perfect as this is just an adhesive for your toppers to stick.
Put your leaves on first. 
Then place your GORGEOUS giant rose topper. 
 Now for the finale. Take your brush and sprinkle your edible glitter on the cupcake.
And your finished!
 TAH DAH! Aside from a big hug &  kiss, I think this is the second best thing you can do for your Mommy for Mother's Day:)
Have a very Happy Mother's Day!
