Sawatdee Khap-cakes
At the behest of a friend, we created these babies for their booth at the upcoming Fantastic Thai Market on 12th September. So the conversation goes something like this~

Friend: Bro, can you create some Thai-themed stuff for our next bazaar?
TGS: *brainstorms for two days*
TGS: Ok we gonna make you a Tom Yum cupcake and a Kanom cupcake. We gonna call them….. wait for it….. SAWATDEE KHAP-CAKES
TGS: Geddit?? GEDDIT????? ???


It’s a wonder we still have any friends at all.

Anyhoo, these all-natural cupcakes will be available at The Garden Slug through the week (or while they last), and for one day only at Wellness Hut‘s health & wellness booth at Fantastic Thai Market @ Tanjong Pagar Railway Station (12 Sep 2016, 10am-6pm). Quite likely the last bazaar at the historical landmark before it closes for a major makeover.

Tom Yum ~ lemongrass & ginger cake crusted with chili lime caramel
Kanom ~ pandan cake with gula melaka fudge & coconut flakes
Made with all-natural ingredients – no artificial colouring, no synthetic flavouring.

Sawatdee Khap-cakes 2

The ones available at the Thai-themed bazaar on 12 Sep will also be sugar-free, baked fresh using iLite’s Cook&Bake low-GI sugar replacement product. Ashley and Yanling will be able to tell you more about this “sugar-free sugar”, so say Hi to them for us, k! They’re as friendly as we are, minus the syiok sendiri (self-amusing) lame jokes ^_^

Why did we name our new cocktail “50.39”?

|ØLYMPIC•BØØZE|

Thanks to Kiss92‘s Maddy, Jason, and Arnold, we learned that hor, you cannot anyhowly use a certain hemsem Olympic gold medallist’s name to promote your product, even if he truly madly deeply eats your food or drinks your Milo every day. Because said athlete’s name is owned by the Olympic committee, or something to that effect. O, the things one learns listening to radio!!

50point39 Olympic Gold Medal Cocktail

So while it’s not true that said athlete frequents our little joint (prolly never even heard of us), it is true that we would like to celebrate the legend and his triumph nonetheless, because #singapuraboleh hokay!

In true Slug fashion, any celebration worth its weight in gold requires alcohol. So, we concocted a boozy cocktail of blueberries and green apple with a splash of gin & vodka.

It’s called “50.39” after the new record-breaking timing. It is also the time it takes us to make one of these babies. HOW COOL IS THAT?! ??? #ownself

50point39 Olympic Gold Medal Cocktail

Available from today through the week. If you feel like going all out, then do come by on Mondays & Tuesdays when we offer a 1-for-1 spesh on all our cocktails, yes, including this one.

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.

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.
