My darling girl just turned six. We had a little celebration, it was a DIY party set up.

This is my first DIY party flagline. Yellow  and white polka dots make a cheerful colour combinations  and  I think it is best for making kids party flagline. First of all, cut out a triangle using cardboard. Use it as a template to trace the shape on the cloth. I used double layer for each flag because my material was too thin.

Then, sew it along a ribbon .   A very simple but lovely party set up for Apple Cheeks’s birthday.

Mini chocolate cupcake is her favourite. I prepared these lovely mini cakes for her instead of a fanciful birthday cake. Besides, it was just the right size for kids to take as dessert. I think it was very sweet to put those cakes on the stand.

I am six now!

Little sweet pea was not well that day but she was cheered up by the party.

Happy Birthday to the apple cheeks girl. It was a last minute party idea. I can’t make a princess theme for you this year (as all little girls wish to have). I will try to do it next year…hopefully ! Mommy and daddy love you and little sweet pea always.

…apple cheeks was with LovelyDIY since she was two. She inspired me in DIY and she loves crafts.

Love always,


(DIY 乐)


Lovely cupcakes

I attended a cupcakes decorating class conducted by chef  Nicholas.  There,  I learned how to make beautiful butter icing and fondant. I had so much fun doing the icing pipping and decorating the cupcakes with fondant.

Beautiful yellow rose. It was made of fondant…and now I know the secret of how to make  this flower.

Simple swirling butter icing on top of the cake. It is my favorite.

Mmmm…yummy, yummy cupcakes. Kids and adult love it!

This is me and my daughter’s favorite. Isn’t it lovely?

My cuppy cupcakes!

Can’t wait to make more. As chef Nicholas said, practice more to make it perfect!

I love cupcakes especially the beautiful icing topping decorations. I am learning to make butter icing. I found a simple recipe on butter icing for cupcake.

This is the recipe:


120g butter
300g icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Food coloring (optional)


Sieve icing sugar to break lumps.

In a separate bowl, cream butter till soft. Add icing sugar, a little at a time, beating continuously. Add vanilla and continue beating until icing is creamy and fluffy. Color as you wish.

I tried this simple recipe with my daughter, she enjoyed doing it. It is a fun activity for both adult and kids.
