A Special Cake For Mum

Specially for Madam Lu Jun Nan on her 70th Birthday!


For a mum who loves gardening,
Making sure the garden in full bloom,
She is someone to talk to when she's sewing,
whenever we are in clouds of gloom.

unfinished Poem by wiz

Now let's leave the poems to the professionals. Here's one from Joanna Fuchs

Super Mom

Mom, you're a wonderful mother,
So gentle, yet so strong.
The many ways you show you care
Always make me feel I belong.

You're patient when I'm foolish;
You give guidance when I ask;
It seems you can do most anything;
You're the master of every task.

You're a dependable source of comfort;
You're my cushion when I fall.
You help in times of trouble;
You support me whenever I call.

I love you more than I can express;
You have my total respect.
If I had my choice of mothers,
You'd be the one I'd select!

By Joanna Fuchs

It's so sweet of her to celebrate her mum's 70th birthday Wiz and her mum will be more than pleased to see the beautiful cake from your novelty line.

Wish that more of your customers will order novelty cakes in the future. Just love to see the creativity that you poured in your creation! keep up the good work Wiz!

Yes, she's a sweet lady. Her mother likes mahjong, gardening and sewing, it's all three in one cake. Really hope she likes it. You know what was the most difficult part of doing the cake? Sourcing for the gold chocolate coins. I was all over town yesterday and they were none. In the end out of fatigue, I stopped at this small Indian grocery store, and there it was right there on the counter! Felt like kissing the cashier. He said the coins just arrived yesterday after months of absence. Alhamdulillah kan Salina.

Salina said...

I broke into a frenzy of laughter when you said that you felt like kissing the indian grocer! i could fathom your feeling of relief when you found them! Yes, wiz allah has blessed your efforts to give the best to your customer and probably for the daughter and mother too for their pure unconditional love!

Wiz said...

Akmal - I'm glad the cake has reminded you of your mum. Go call her up.

Kak Elle - Will check out Mark and Spencer's store when i run out of those coins, thanks for the info, appreciate it.

Kc - What gave you the idea that I don't put on weight? I easily do, but so far the leg lifts have been helpful, not kidding!
