Heart Shape Birthday Cake

This cake is specially made for my friend whose parents were celebrating their birthday together.  They are well into their eighties and as both of them do not know their actual birth date since it is not stated on their birth documents, they decided to pick the same date for their birthday.  Aww.....this is such a sweet and loving gesture. 

This cake really surprised me, seeing as I'm not actually psychic enough to know the outcome beforehand. Thanks to my friend who knows exactly what she wanted for her parents' birthday cake, she made my job all the more easier. 

I recieved an SMS regarding the cake 3 days before DD (delivery date). I honestly didn't think I was gonna pull it off.  However, she told me it was going to be a simple cake and there was nothing to stress over. How could I say no? I did not regret at all.

Isn't it amazing how two people can be together up till their 80's? The compromising, the arguements... Love truly does conquer all.

Thanks to Yin Yee who knew exactly what she wanted.  This orange poppyseed cake was simple yet elegantly designed with buttercream roses and shell borders.  Btw, the wordings were provided by Yin Yee in English and I got someone to pen them down in Mandarin as my Mandarin is half past six.
