Welcome to Just Heavenly's Blog

It's already 2009. When I last wrote this welcome message, I happily dated it 2010 to make it sticky. Stanley Kubrick's & Arthur C Clarke's vision of the future is almost in the past and we're refreshing this blog with a new look and a new attitude to reflect new challenges and new directions.
As you can see, the template has been refreshed and we've added a twitter bar for you to follow updates there and get to know us better, as well as our link to our Facebook profile.
In the past year, due to YOUR support, we've added a third outlet to the Just Heavenly family. And now, we're proud to be serving Petaling Jaya from our new hub there, A Slice of Heaven. Watch out for more to come.
To A Slice of Heaven in Jaya One - Coming Soon To Bangsar To Pleasures in Plaza Damansara PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE WHAT'S NEW!

Crystal Flower Miniature hantaran cakes & Pretty in Pink

Bling with a little colour was the brief and so Allan managed to find these faux crystal flowers for the miniatures.

Pretty in pink was for a birthday of one of our loyal clients (to whom we're very appreciative) and was designed specifically because the birthday girl loves everything pink.

Death By Chocolate individuals and Choc & Cheese individuals

The Death By Chocolate is probably our runaway best seller. And now you can have it as an individual portion. Look out for it at Just Heavenly's Pleasures.

A light chocolate genoise, filled with cream set chocolate mousse, and topped with a dark chocolate ganache makes this little dessert something enjoy as an after dinner treat or just because.
Death By Chocolate

Ever heard of the saying "as different as chalk and cheese?" The inspiration for this cake came from that. It means that 2 things are almost absurdly different and they almost don't belong together in their present form.

Chocolate is a rich dark flavour which is ALMOST entirely used in desserts while cheese is generally (depending on it's form) more flexible. But even then, the word cheese usually conjures up images of savouriness.

Taking our moist Chocolate Fudge cake as a starting point, we thought it might be interesting to pair it with a cream cheese frosting. And lo and behold, Choc & Cheese was born! The moist, tender crumb texture of the Chocolate Fudge stands as a counterpoint to the savoury bite of the Cream Cheese frosting.

Chocolate Lava individual tester

There's magic when the right combination of ingredients, textures, and temperatures happen. And as Nigella would say, " gorgeousness has been achieved."(say it with me after you've put 2 small plums in your mouth).

Our Chocolate Lava is probably one of our most rustic looking dessert cakes. We make it in a 9 inch round and we're testing it for individual servings as in the picture. It takes a little work for it to taste its best but its worth every second. It's absolutely gorgeous on the tongue even when cold but when it's warmed up and the centre melts into a deep, dark chocolate velvet sauce, AND eaten with a good quality vanilla ice cream or dairy cream, it is the epitome of divine! You can see why it's called a Chocolate Lava as well; after baking a slight crater is achieved and when warmed up (even in a microwave oven), the centre melts into the sight below. It just oozes chocolate.

And yes, we're testing it as individual servings.

Just Heavenly Pleasures

This has been in the pipes for some time now.

Just Heavenly has taken the plunge in order to take us to our next step so it'll make it more convenient for our customers to pick up and sample what we have to offer.

To that end, we are opening Just Heavenly Pleasures. Hold on...before you ask about our present place of business, please rest assured we have no intention of giving it up and that the usual hours still apply. Our new little place will be open for longer however.

We believe we've found the perfect little place to sell take out cakes and desserts and all sorts of food gifts of stuff we enjoy, using packaging which is unique, eye catching, and yet, good value.

Much of the food gifts will be made by us but some will be sourced from suppliers and vendors we've personally tried and that we enjoy.

For those of you who've been asking for individual pieces as well as slices of cake, here's your chance to come to Just Heavenly Pleasures and pick some up for that dinner party, office get-together, after meal snack, or just for the heck of it.

We've also come to an arrangement with Chef & Brew located just opposite us for you to order at our place and have it delivered to you at the restaurant so you can enjoy a cup of coffee with it.

We will keep you posted as to when the grand opening will be.

Here's the address.

Lot G, 1.05 No 1

A Birthday Stud

Do I really need a comment for this pic? ;-)

Ask me if you want to see what's under the white spot. And oh yes, the dribbles on the cake are intentional! >;-)

A wedding at Frangipani

Had a blast doing this great wedding at Frangipani's, this great bar and restaurant (03) 2144 3001.

They have a stunning place anyway but decorating it with the theme "a wedding in the clouds" was really fun. We got to bring in a smoke machine. You'll see evidence of that in the pictures below. ;-)

Have fun.

Main Entrance arrangment - white feathers were used to pull the theme of clouds through the entire decor

If you've been to Frangipani's before, check out the lights on the ceiling. We wrapped them with feather boas. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of the table settings. Each person has napkin rings made of the same colour cloth and a feather inserted in them.

The main entrance. If you look through the glass you'll see that people are wreathed in clouds

Happy New Year 2007

Quite a few people have been asking me why I have not updated our blog. I'm afraid that as organisation goes, I'm not very good about arranging what I do when I do it. As such, I've made it a point to update this blog at least 3 times a week. We're getting loads on interesting projects and cakes to make and here are some of the more interesting ones.

Flamenco Dancer with Birthday Boy

Roman Mosaic- Something which I feel is one of Allan's best works. He assembled the entire mosaic (shading and all) from little pieces of sugar mosaic, grouted it with sugar paste and then aged it by gently rubbing it.

The naughty bits have been smudged out! ;-)

A 40th birthday cake!

A zoo/menagerie for a 2 year old

A First Holy Communion cake for a young Catholic boy

A CD Jelly Bag

Fresh Roses with the couple in caricature on top

Diamantes and Swarovski Crystals

The batik design of the indigineous tribes of Borneo - the design was from the wedding card, designed by the bride's father

A corporate party decor

And at night... :-)
