I was craving for desserts yesterday. A condition that is most destructive.
Wasn't feeling up to baking, plus I had a ton of drawings to complete yesterday. So, I was home bound on a Saturday with a million work on my hands. Sounds sucky, right? Fortunately however, there was this wonderful solution!
They're an online dessert and pastry shop based in Shah Alam and they offer delivery services. I've followed them on Facebook for ages already but had never ordered anything. I'm a little cheap and I usually wouldn't buy things I think I can make. But I decided to try their desserts anyway yesterday and I have absolutely no regret! Everything was so good!
I initially ordered a jar of rainbow buttercream cake and another of red velvet. But they then offered me this cheesecake they called Snow Cheesecake and I'm a sucker for cheesecakes so I took that too. Then, I was also offered a 5 piece tray of assorted kuih talams for free! How could anyone resist?? The mountains of work didn't seem too much to handle suddenly.
|The Snow Cheesecake|
I had to dig into the cheesecake first, the grated cheese that covered it seemed almost begging to be eaten. And oh my goodness, I'm not the least bit exaggerating when I say it was a trip to Europe in my mouth. It was absolutely delicious! I almost didn't wanna share it but everyone seemed like they were getting ready to pounce if I held the spoon any longer. There was only one unfortunate thing about this Snow Cheesecake. Despite trying hard to economize my bite sizes so it wouldn't finish, Alpha jumped onto the table and the rest was history.
|There was actually supposed to be 5 pieces but someone got to one of em before I could say cowabunga.|
Then, I served the kuih talams after lunch. I couldn't be happier, thanks so much Khaira Cuppies for these, they were just perfect cuz then I had something to give to my grandparents. My tok wouldn't eat anything that isn't familiar to her and these kuih talams were a life saver! My dad loved them so much too! They were all gone by the end of lunch. I refrigerated the jar cakes to save for later.
|The Red Velvet and Rainbow Buttercream|
I had the jar of Rainbow Buttercream cake later that evening while I was painting. It just seemed right to paint colours and eat colours at the same time. Haha. I loved every bite of it! The cream wasn't too sweet like some shops would make and it wasn't too oily either. I ate slowly cuz I was working and even when it was somewhat thawed, the cream remained thick and full. It was really a delectable, simple, back-to-basics-but-with-a-touch-of-pretty treat!
I can't say much about the red velvet though. Why? Cuz I came down and it was all wiped out clean. *__*
I think that's self-explanatory. Hafiz had gotten to it first and though he's crazy about red velvet, I would think he'd save a little for me to taste. Nada. Lol.
|Everything I got from Khaira Cuppies yesterday.|
At the end of the day, I was truly satisfied. I fed my cravings and more and completed my drawings, it was a great Saturday! I would be honest, I've always thought that Khaira Cuppies were a little expensive as compared to other dessert shops. In total, I paid RM30 for all I ordered; but I won't complain at all when I got my money's worth. I've previously tried their pavlova bites when a friend of mine ordered some months ago and after trying so many from their menu, I can safely say that I truly recommend Khaira Cuppies to anyone looking for desserts and pastries that are both tantalizing to the taste buds as well as the eyes. So much so that you'd have to guard it even from your cat.
|The pesky party pooper|
However, I would have to teach you something first if you're like me, looking for a little afternoon snack. The thing about Khaira Cuppies is that they usually take orders in bulk only. So, they're a perfect catering source if you're looking to throw a party or something. But if you're not planning to buy anymore than a couple of this and that, you should contact them and ask if they have any extra pastries from their orders of the day. This way, you might not be able to be very picky about what you get but it's fun to be surprised! They're always baking so you can always try your luck and see what they have spared for the day. So, there's that from me. Happy getting fat lovelies! I wouldn't give up desserts for anything.
