Teenagers having some baking fun

It was that time in our class calender that we celebrate the School Holidays. We conducted teenagers' baking boot camps and parent & child classes and we must show you the photos. It is so so endearing when you see teenagers and kids having a good time and good skills too. We love conducting these school holiday classes because the children have so much fun. Children are the most creative lot. They are the first not to follow the instructor's instructions!

Looking for some bonding time with your kids or looking for interesting activities for your teenagers to do that will horn their skills. As we always say "learning to bake or cook is a life survival skill, not just a hobby". If you are interested in our teenagers and parent & child classes, our next batch of school holiday classes are in March 2015. So, don't wait, book them now on our website.

Cake of the month - Dec 2014

It’s time again for us to feature our “Cake of the month” to showcase what we consider our best custom made order cake. The Cake of the month for Dec is Baby Rachel's full moon cake. We made a delicious moist chocolate cake covered with pink fondant for a pretty baby girl. It was a square cake rather than the conventional round ones topped with teddy, butterfly, presents, ribbons and hearts.

Li Hwa wrote to us and said she wanted a special designer fondant cake for her daughter's full moon. She sent us a photo of her dream cake and we re-created the design for her. We loved it and so did Li Hwa. It was so fabulous!

Well, we can't be happier than to know we have made someone happy. Have a special event coming up? Need a special cake? Take a peek at our Cake Creations gallery: For enquiries on our custom order designer cakes, please send us an e-mail at We try to help fit all budgets.

Food Styling & Food Photography Class - 28 Nov 2014

We were very excited when the date for our 1st Food Styling and Food Photography class, aptly named "Plate to Pixel", drew near. It was a beautiful morning with the sun shining bright and cheerful which was important to capture natural lighting (one of the pointers for good photography).

Our two photographers, Audrey and Michelle, were on hand to facilitate the class. Audrey started with a briefing to the participants on the 12 important pointers for food styling and photography. We can't help but noticed that our youngest participant was just 14 years old! Imam had great fun and so did the rest of the participants.

It was a very practical and hands-on class with everyone practising how to style food to make it look delicious, using natural ingredients like garlic oil. Next, out came i-pads, smart phones, SLR cameras to capture the food moments. Participants were taught how to shoot photos of the food in their best angle and lighting. Aids like reflectors and props and how to use them to take fabulous photos were explained. It was indeed a fun and fulfilling day.

For those of you who missed the class, we are running a similar class in Jan and Mar 2015. So, do look out for the dates in our new Class Calender Jan-Apr 2015 which will be up on our website after Christmas. For enquiries, you can call us at 016-377 8236.
