How to have your (all-natural) cake and eat it, too!

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

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 purĂ©e 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.

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 purĂ©es 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.
