Our friends didn’t understand “all-natural cakes” at first, but then we told them this…

How to have a birthday cake that tastes good AND is healthy for both children and seniors? Basically how to have your cake and eat it, too!

With our bespoke cakes, you get:
– all-natural ingredients only
– no artificial colouring
– no synthetic flavouring
– less sugar

You’ll certainly make an impression at any party. Not to mention the new age, health-conscious parents will thank you for keeping their allergy-ridden kids in mind. And the seniors will adore you for helping to keep their sugar levels in check!

That’s why having an all-natural celebration cake will make your life SO much more enjoyable, and even help you make / keep more friends.

But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s an actual review from our bakery Dough Empire FB page:

You can go for a simple, rustic look. Or you can ask for a customised cake, too. Like this one:

Bottom tier: Matcha cake with turquoise ombre roses frosting
Top tier: Earl Grey cake with pink frosting, adorned with sugar pearls

So this sounds up your all-natural alley?

1.) Click on this link www.DoughEmpire.com
It will take you to our online bakery store

5.) You will immediately receive a confirmation email with all the details you entered.

6.) Wait excitedly for the cake to arrive at your doorstep at your pre-ordered date and time!

Join us for our first ever adoption drive

Join us this Saturday afternoon (20th May 1-5pm) for our first ever dog adoption drive! Meet rescued dogs who are waiting to be taken to a forever home.

Benefits of adopting a dog:
· unconditional love
· having someone who is truly madly deeply happy to see you every day
· dog kisses
· dog hugs
· improved fitness from daily walks and/or runs
· improved social life from making new friends with other doggies & dog owners
· did we mention unconditional love?

We will have a handful of dogs for you to meet, and each one of them is about 3-4 years old.

These are all abandoned and rescued dogs currently being fostered by volunteers at Joyous bArk.

May 20th from 1pm-5pm
The Garden Slug (Bright Centre 55 Lorong L Telok Kurau, #01-59/61, Singapore 425500)

Learn to design your own Mandalas in under 2 hours, no drawing skills required!

Last updated on May 2, 2017

Come join us at The Garden Slug (May 7th at 10am or May 21st at 10am) for this two-hour workshop.

mandala making workshop at the garden slug

Mandalas are increasingly being used as an art therapy resource, evidenced by the countless mandala-themed colouring books you see everywhere.
Instead of buying a colouring book – come join us and learn how to make YOUR OWN mandala this weekend.

Doodlers, dreamers, or those seeking to rearrange your inner lives… all are welcome!

It’s actually really easy to learn and design mandalas on your own. Why colour in someone else’s computer-generated artwork, when you can create by hand something that fully expresses your self?
It will be akin to your signature or thumbprint, only in the form of the most beautiful diagrams.

All you have to do at this workshop is learn a few different styles and patterns, that can be mixed and matched, to create a brand new mandala of your own. You’ll be a bona fide MandalaMeister™ right before lunchtime rolls around.

The mandala creation process is SO soothing… almost meditative. Allows me to access deeper levels of conscience. —Sara W., mother of 3


Soon this became a daily habit & helped me stabilise, integrate & re-order my inner life! —SY Tan, fintech developer


If you’re a designer, artist, or art therapist, this is a whole new realm that could open up a lot of new business. You can get in on the ground floor of this.

Order breakfast for dinner tonight and stand to win a Singlish ‘Three Little Pigs’

Three Little Pigs by The Garden Slug

Aaron D’Cruz
April 26, 2017

Lemme ask you something.

Do you….
Hate taking part in dumbass quizzes?
Loathe giving out your email address, ’coz you know it’s only gonna result in us sending you more dumbass quizzes??
LOVE our artery-clogging 3 Little Pigs and wish you could be rewarded with something than just calories & guilt every time you devour it??? (perhaps something “intellectually”-rewarding that’s made of….hmm…. dead trees, maybe?)

If you answered YES to all of the above, then do this:

1.) From today until Sunday (30.4.2017), order your favourite hangover-curing Three Little Pigs on Deliveroo, Foodpanda, UberEats, Honestbee, or WhatToEat.

2.) On your delivery order’s “Comments” / “Allergy notes” / “Instructions” section, or wherever they might allow you to write something — make sure you type in or copy & paste this code-phrase:

I’ve ordered a 3LP and I want to win a 3LPLah storybook!

That’s it! As easy as 1 – 2 – 3 Little Pigs! (see what I did there…*snorts*)

[pic: excerpt from book]
Every order entitles you a chance to win a brand new copy of “The Three Little Pigs Lah” storybook by Casey Chen. Every day, five winners are picked and the prize is immediately packed together with your delivery order!

There’s no limit to how many times you can enter this lucky draw. As long as you
a.) order a 3LP via delivery, and
b.) enter the magic words in the Instructions/comments box,
you can stand to win again!
What this means is that the MORE you order… the BETTER your chances.

Where to order 3 Little Pigs:


(the first three service the Katong / Bedok / Geylang area, and What To Eat delivers island-wide

If you already get food delivered regularly, then wah, bonus lor!

Like Sondra P., one of Monday’s five winners, who sent us a pic and wrote:

The Three Little Pigs “Lah” is totally LOL! Enjoyed flipping thru the pages while huffing & puffing over my 3Little Pigs late dinner… after the kids went to bed, of course. P/S- I will gift it to them once they turn 18! Ha haaa!

So, because this Sondra P. pecah lubang, now errone knows that other than a Singlish story book, lucky winners get a little bonus gift as well.

Yes, I meant the handwritten letter la… (how RARE is that in 2017, dude??). The $10 gift card is just a by-the-way thing, pfffft.

Order Three Little Pigs today

from any of these deliverators:


Five lucky persons PER DAY stand to win:

✔ A copy of “The Three Little Pigs Lah” by Casey Chen

✔ $10 coupon code from Dough Empire
