Mahjong Cupcakes Encore


















Back logs, back logs are haunting me. Been rather busy at work and had no time to post. New clients to attend to, new staff to train. During this downturn, I guess being busy is welcomed. I must say there are alot of mahjong fans around. I made these mahjong tiles once again for a lady. She left the tile selection entirely to me. I hope her mommy liked them. I had to use these plastic boxes as the machine broke down when I needed it most.


















As suggested by Jane, I put the real tiles and edible tiles side by side.





































To the person who sends me rude emails persistently about these mahjong tiles; I don't have to prove anything to you but for the sake of argument, I will. The above tiles are the proof that I do not use moulds to mould my tiles. Those moulds can only give you 十三么, not these flower cards. I do not use edible print outs either. Each and every one of them is handcrafted.

Having said my piece, it's back to work. Later.

I admire your brilliant handwork. Ignore those who send you rude messages, they are not worth your time. Surround yourself with positive and nice people.

I found your website while googling for shio saba recipe. While edible mahjong tiles are no where close to grilled fish, I have to say, what an impressive creation! What are they made from, icing sugar or almond paste? It looks just like real mahjong tiles, trully impressive!

Hi rei,
these are as real as the real one! *applause*applause*
sometimes, some people gets jealous over other people's talents and achievement, and they made rude comments to put people down. I do pity them at times because of their ill manners, which they didn't know reflect badly on themselves ;-(

Hi Rei,

One should not take other ppl comment seriously. For us we find joy and sense of achievement making some nice looking cake. So head care about what other ppl think. I think your Chinese Calligraphy is real good back in school days. Another cheer for you!

lileeng said...

Hi Rei, very impressed on these tiles and I've already expressed my amazement on KC. Sorry to read that someone has sent u the rude emails and you are right, you don't need to prove anything to anyone! These are 'small-minded' people who are probably jealous of your talent!

Great job and I would like to try this soon using the mould I have and I am sure will not even be 1/2 as good as yours!

Keep up your good work and spirit, and don't let small minded people tell you otherwise!

Cheers, Cindy

KWF said...

Rei, I think these have become your signature cuppies already! Very well done once again!

To that rude person who can't do it, you're really pathetic!

And I second Katherine's suggestion. If you ever open a class on deco (ok, I know you're super busy), please, please, please sms me in case I miss the online world.

Take care and look forward to your next post. :)

Rei said...

Thanks for all your support. I am not too bothered by the comments initially but they just got nastier when I ignored them.

Ernie : They are made of Marshmallow fondant.

Kitchen Corner : You have a lovely blog! Nice bakes especially your chiffon cakes.

Excellent work, Rei ! If you only show these edible tiles, I will say they are real tiles. Don't bother rude messages, what true is true. Cheer up !

Rei said...

Chumpman : Thank You!
