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.

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.

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.

All-Natural Rainbow Cake by Dough Empire, Singapore

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