This is the first pole-dancing cake anyone has ever made for me. And of course, as bizarre as always, I had indeed wished it right before it arrived at my doorstep.
Well, that's not all....this cake tells a story one...
That's Federico & our daughter Mulan posing as drooling audience staring up upon the pole queen (me) on 'stage'. Hahahahahaha!
Gosh, how is one supposed to eat this??!
It's too beautiful to only be melted away by stomach acid...? It's a work of art for goodness sake.
Well, can't eat it so keep it - all 3 of us are still in the fridge as we speak. But I sure whallup the cake ok. Man, the butter sponge went down like a dream and so my breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next 2 days were totally taken care of. And I'm salivating again.
Mama Min, can you please please please make one with me hanging off the pole like this the next time?
I tell you, Mama Min can do it alright. She loves working with her hands and since she's so super at it, started her cake factory at home!
Now Min lives just across my house and I'm pretty sure we can work out a barter trade on cupcakes in exchange for some pole-dancing lessons perhaps? Like 5 cupcakes to a trick, one whole cake for a month-long 4 -lesson deal.... can't we, Mama :P ?
That night she brought me the pole-dancing cake from across the street (looks like something outta Desperate Housewives la...), we had met the very first time. Angie had introduced us. And guess what, she's the wife of veteran radio DJ and actor Patrick Teoh. Good neighbours are hard to find so I'm glad I got one who's sweet. Hmmm... icing-sweet... sugar-galore sweet...
And check out my order of more cupcakes last week! Mandi-mandi sponsored lunch and offered a day of pure fun in the sun for some under-privileged kids in celebration of Living Hope Malaysia's 1st anniversary.
Especially when they look like this.
So make a date with Mama Min or if you're truly desperate,
(sorry ah Uncle Patrick, your wife will be very busy you know...)
