Su-Yin -Décorateur

September 6, 2008

The girl who loves to cook.

This is Su's Journal where she speaks about her cooking experiences, food adventures and her life's musings as she matures and discovers adulthood with a brave smile. Despite her background in Construction Management+Property from UNSW(Sydney); she followed the voice in her heart to pursue her new found interest in the Art of Cake Decorating. It all began with a spark of enlightenment from picking up a tiny block of fondant icing and a brochure hidden within. She thought to herself; "WOW! The things I could do with THIS!!".
She has much progressed with her self taught techniques since (thank goodness!) and has now graduated from a 24week European pastry programme from the NotterSchool of Pastry Arts in Orlando; FL.
She has a weak spot for sexy shoes; peanut butter and piping hot potato wedges. Su is enthusiastic and energetic in bright sunshine; and losses her vibrant animated self as evening falls. She's completely in love with everything edible; especially edible things which are both delicious and beautiful. She believes our precious eyes deserve as much a feast as our noses and tastebuds are so lucky to enjoy. Life's too short for ugly food *wink*

Dear Su Yin,

I do enjoy your blogs. Roti canai is a favorite dish of mine. I used to enjoy it when I was schooloing in PJ, M'sia. Now I am in California and the only decent M'sian roti canai is at the Jasmine Bistro in El Cajon, California ...of all places! If anyone has something interesting for me to try in the area, let me know!

Regards,

Rick A

Dear Su:
I have read an article about you at the chinese newspaper few months ago. I admire your courage and passion. Like myself, i always want to learn how to bake cake, decorate it and even thinking of going to japan or other countries to learn it but never taken any actions and courage to do it. It's quite of hard to step out the first step to pursue your dream especially if you are not young anymore.

Dear Su Yin,

A long time ago, I was searching for bunny mochi online lol and one of the results that came up was your blog. This was way before you started attending school in Florida. I didn't have a blog at the time but I did check your blog every once in awhile ever since then to be inspired by the wonderful treats you make. It's nice to see that you have come so far and that you even have your own shop now! You are an incredibly talented person and i congratulate you on coming so far :]

Take care.

Dear Su, I 'm following you since your first post in this journal and only now I write you some words to congratulate about your skills and your business..You were very strong in your aims and you reached them with a very good success..I'm sorry for my bad English, I'm Italian and I would be very glad if you could have a look at my site ..In Italy there isn't a tradition in cake decoration, but now it is changing a little and it becomes more popular, at least in the web...
I'm an architect and I began some years ago to do something with buttercream for my children birthdays...So be patient and be comprehensive..;-)
