Money talks and cash doesn't come any sweeter than this Million Dollar Truffle Cake! Actually it does NOT cost a million dollars but RM 490 but you do get real gold foil, fake gold coins and genuine truffles! Proof you can have your cake and eat it too!
This calke is called Better Than Sex (RM 220) but the lips do not open so it is not possible for you to shove your tongue inside or any other organ but you can kiss the hotlips for sure and eat it too.
I love this Banana Lust cake but despite its name it hardly looks erotic as they should have used an entire, uncut (get it?) and curvy banana fruit instead of banana chips! Doesn't remind me of a lan chiau or cb at all! RM 220
NOW THERE IS A NEW TOURIST ATTRACTION WITH THE OPENING OF MS B'S CAKERY IN HONG KONG!
Bonnie Gokson, owner of Ms B's Cakery, is as delicious, delectable and edible looking as her much talked-about cakes.
NOT MANY MALAYSIANS HAVE HEARD OF BONNIE GOKSON AS SHE IS NOT A FAMOUS MOVIE STAR, SINGER, ACTRESS, ENTERTAINER, TA-TAI OR EVEN A FORMER MISS HONG KONG.
BUT BONNIE GOKSON IS RICH, BEAUTIFUL AND SEXY..THE 3 MOST IMPORTANT ATTRIBUTES. OK YOUTH IS ALSO EXTREMELY IMPORTANT BUT BY THE TIME YOU BECOME A STYLE ICON AND TREND-SETTER AND APPEAR IN ALL THE GLOSSY MAGAZINES, CHANCES ARE YOU WILL NOT BE A SPRING CHICKEN ANYMORE.
BUT WHO CARES AS LONG AS YOU LOOK YOUTHFUL, DAZZLING AND RAZZLING!
IN BONNIE GOKSON'S CASE, SHE IS ALSO A STYLE ICON AND MANY HONKEES LOOK UP TO HER FOR HER DRESSING SENSE AND ADMIRE HER STYLE AS SHE IS ALWAYS DECKED IN THE LATEST DESIGNER GEAR SINCE SHE HAS A FIGURE TO DIE FOR AND DOES NIT REQUIRE A NEIGHBOURHOOD SEAMSTRESS TO STITCH UP SOME BAJU TO ACCOMMODATE THE SURPLUS AVOIRDUPOIS.
