We had another good sales again on Sunday....sold out all the butter cakes! One customer called to say that the cake is "sedap giler and menyesal beli satu je" :) He wanted to come back and buy another one but he was already in Selayang.

Well, the butter cake has always been my favourite. It's a recipe that was handed down by my late aunt. Over the years, I have improvised the recipe slightly and now use only the best butter ... SCS or Golden Churn.

The moist chocolate cakes were selling well too that I had to come home and baked somemore.
BTW, we will not be at the Amcorp Mall next week but we do accept orders.



Yesterday sales went through the roof! The Cookie Cat is still open today at Amcorp but it's run by my friend while I'm back at home baking more peanut cookies. Yesterday the peanut cookies were sold out. One customer commented that the cookie melts in your mouth :)

We've been getting text messages asking for more of this and more of that, which I sincerely didn't expect. The response has been incredible. I had to wake up at 4am this morning to bake and catch up with everyone.

We got the business cards ready in time after all yesterday, so for those of you who came here because of the cards, hello! And if you text us with your feedback, thank you so much :)

Yesterday the fruit cakes were selling well too. I am not a big fan of fruit cake until I tasted this steamed fruit cake made by my friend's aunt who is already in her 70s. It's delicious and moist with this rich fruit flavour. The cake would make as a great gift and we do have special packages for different sizes.

a little tired but thrilled,

The Cookie Cat business card

One of my daughters designed a little business card for The Cookie Cat! She drew that cat herself too. We haven't printed them out yet but we are going to try try try print them out before we head to Amcorp.

Excited that The Cookie Cat has cards now,

PS: Phone number is now 019 35 36 35 0

amcorp today, our second time ever!

We're all set to open up shop later today (October 25, 2008) at the Amcorp flea market. Everything's sitting pretty & packaged on the dining table downstairs. We've incorporated all the helpful feedback from last week, so hopefully this week will be fantastic for everyone. Come find us!

Trying not to pinch too much of the food,

PS: Just in case we can't come online on Monday, The Cookie Cat would like to wish all our future customers Happy Diwali. We think some of our muruku would go just nicely with your festivities :)

the cookie cat's debut

We started selling for the first time just outside Starbucks in Amcorp Mall. Z has heard a lot about the flea markets on Sunday but have never participated before. I designed a cute little sign for our stall (our stall was rather big, we were afraid we couldn't fill it all two tables up) and we photocopied it into flyers for people who asked.

We were nervous since it was our first time handling things like this. Can we just say a big THANK YOU to window shoppers and customers who really helped us out with their advice? It's amazing how little things slipped our minds, like price tags! Kind people like you are the ones who will help us improve The Cookie Cat for everyone :)

Another piece of feedback we kept on receiving was to make a website, so people could place their orders online and keep in touch with my new project! So here you have it. I've started this site for my mother, and hopefully she'll learn more about how to update it as we go along.

We're planning on filling this up with
  • pictures
  • updates
  • new menu additions
  • dates and locations of TCC stalls
  • prices and order details
  • maybe even a recipe or two?
Hmm. In the meantime please please bookmark this url: http://thecookiecat.blogspot.com and pass it to your friends!

Happy eating!
