Singapore’s first-ever pop-up cat café!

There will be so many things to do!

⚫ Have a professional photograph (or two, or twenty!) taken with the therapy cats for only $10 each. Our favourite troll Nicholas Lee of Furry Photos Pet Photography will CONFIRM make you look good!

⚫ Shop for some ridiculously good-looking accessories by Goood Pet Collars and Well Dressed Cats for the little furry ones at home (so they don’t get jealous that you’ve been sayang-ing other kitties all afternoon…)

⚫ Our regular menu will be available throughout. So you can makan, minum and be merry while you mingle with the kitties

Dough Empire is baking super cute cat-shaped soft-baked cookies in limited quantities.

Proceeds from all of the above will go towards sustaining Love Kuching Project’s cattery operations, rehabilitation, supplies and medical bills for our rescue fur-friends.

And if all the therapy cats are occupied, there’s always Cowboy the resident cat, who continues to remain unimpressed and indifferent to anything and everything that goes on around here.

He does love his chin scratches, though ^_^

If you can’t deliver hugs, this cake is like sending love by the slice

What we’ve come to affectionately call “Blue Velvet” is not just simply a blue version of the Red Velvet. It’s a lot more than that. It’s an all-natural melt-in-your-mouth Blueberry Yoghurt Panna Cotta Cake with a lightly toasted multigrain crust.

Blue Velvet Cake (Blueberry Yoghurt Panna Cotta)

These cakes are made in a little red-bricked kitchen at a quiet, ulu place in Telok Kurau, by a solo baker so steeped in the sweet lore of home-made cake-craft. He will not even allow himself near the city lights, for fear he should be contaminated by ‘modern methods’.

Blue Velvet Cake (Blueberry Yoghurt Panna Cotta)

So here he bides, unhurried and at peace, with bowls of fruit purée at his elbows, and little sprigs of vanilla beans and great crocks of yoghurt, making glorious cakes full of the natural goodness we’ve come to be known for.

As a customer once mentioned, our cakes are truly artisanal because they are 100% baked by one person alone.

Blue Velvet Cake (Blueberry Yoghurt Panna Cotta)

Could such cakes as these be made within earshot of a noisy train station or a bustling mall? We think not. Therein lies the truth and beauty of our sleepy little east-side neighbourhood.

Order online from wherever you are in the world. We deliver throughout Singapore.

If you can’t mail a hug, this is the next best thing

Being the non-conformist weirdos that we are, a couple years ago we set out to reinvent the ‘bakery scene’. We set up a little baked goods stall in a coffee shop in Siglap, which failed miserably within the year. Lesson learned.

We pressed on, whisk in one hand, laptop in the other, flour all over our derpy faces. Rebel-bakers with a cause. We took the concept online. Fast forward many moons and now Dough Empire is a little side project that gives us immense pleasure.

At the end of most “rainbows”, you’ll find a whole lot of artificial colouring and flavouring. We believe that excessive consumption of artificial colouring causes behavioural problems in children. We want to put the proverbial POT OF GOLD at the end of OUR rainbow – that pot of gold being authenticity.

All-Natural Rainbow Cake by Dough Empire, Singapore

When we created this cake, we set out to find ways to re-create the colours of the rainbow as truthfully as possible. When you look at a rainbow in the sky, the colours are usually hazy, sheer, translucent. And thus, our All-Natural Rainbow Cake was born.

All-Natural Rainbow Cake by Dough Empire, Singapore

No artificial colouring & no synthetic flavouring used here. You’ll find six pastel layers patiently & gently dyed with our handmade purées of blueberries, matcha, tomato, citrus zest, lemons, and beetroot, each layer frosted with our own unique, housemade yoghurt cream cheese recipe.

THE COLOURS ARE VERY, VERY GENTLE – gentle to your eyes, your belly and your soul – because it’s all natural. They are not lurid, and they do not look like neon lights.

Taste the difference, be good to yourself, because you deserve the REAL stuff.

If you can’t mail a hug, this is the next best thing. Wholesome, thoughtful and delightfully personal, this cake is like sending love by the slice.

Illusion – Nipples – Eggsplosion

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.
—Douglas Adams

|ILLUSIØN|
… is naming something ‘mee siam mai hum’ when there is neither mee siam nor a single hum in it.

(p/s: we added a book AND reading glasses to make the pic look… somewhat, er, intellectual. Have you read said book or would you like to win it? Let us know in the comments and we’ll set something up.)

This one makes its rounds every other year or so, with the same ol’ peoples calling it “nipples” instead of nibbles and thinking it very funny #eyerollemoji

An old and new favourite. Perhaps one day we shall make a “10-year series” of specials.

|EGGSPLØSIØN|
How many of you can relate this to the two breakfast scenes in V for Vendetta? Hands up! 😀

*crickets*
oknvm

Basically a buffed up version of ‘egg-in-a-basket’ — we threw it in the gym and whipped it into a cracking grilled ham & cheese-cum-egg-in-hole sandwich. Slay it (with a wimpy butter knife) like the vigilante that you are and watch the eggplosive fun! You can also ask for a topping of an eggstra ripped whole portobello mushroom.

Before the slay
Humpty Dumpty before slaying

After the slay
Humpty Dumpty

And….. here’s an easter egg for y’all ^_^

Don’t we all just love the sight of a masked, murdering vigilante wearing a flowery, pink apron and a tea towel over the shoulder? # ^_^
