I got the buttercream recipe online, but cannot remembered exactly from who..

This is the guide on the decoration :)

Baked these again for my kids!  Very moist & yummy!


  1. Hi,

    Will the frosting melts easily? And is the cake box from Phoon Huat?


    1. Yes, box from PH. The cram should be able to withstand room temp for 1-2hr.
