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 ^_^

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.

Read about how we first opened a bakery and failed miserably.

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.

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.

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.

When Unicorns Cry

Somebody out there is crazy enough to think our crude li’l bakery Dough Empire is going to become a “Future Classic”.

Shameless advertorial: Visit www.DoughEmpire.com to find out why we are the anti-bakery

I dunno what they’re smoking but they invited Dough Empire to be part of some ‘designery’ event at … the National Design Centre, of course, duh.

IKR? Cray cray.
IKR? Cray cray.

They even asked us to give a talk! Not one, but two! LAWL!! Have they even MET us?? The only thing we’ve got going for us is that our baker Joseph is quite the eye candy. That’s about it, honestly.

Whatever you do, DO NOT come at 3pm to see us make fools of ourselves.

Just to troll everyone, we’re gonna bake some stuff that’s not even on our online store yet, put it in a box and call it “When Unicorns Cry – The Dough Empire Medley”. The boxes will be in 3 different sizes – basic, deluxe and premium, packed in environmentally-friendly unbleached canvas tote bags.

Like any other evil capitalist trying to “do the right thing”, we’ll donate a few cents of our gazillion dollar sales to our favourite cat lady Elaine of Love Kuching Project, and our favourite bleeding-heart-socialist Carrie of Daughters of Tomorrow.

That hipster enuff for the event, you think? We’re hoping to see more tai-tais than hipsters to be very honest. Becoz Aunty Killers ‘R’ Us.

See youse there ~ stay awesome Gotham
