They call themselves ugly because they don’t use artificial colouring, artificial flavours, fondant, gum paste or marzipan in their bake goods. Those are ingredients that usually make cakes look very pretty. If you are ok to use safe artificial colouring because you want certain colours, tell them. They will do it for you. I saw some Tiffany Blue cupcakes that were gorgeous!
So where was the pop up held? At a very hipster looking place. A nice little cafe and bar that carries the cakes and cupcakes made by the Ugly Cake Shop. If you are in the area, drop by this place. Even if it’s not for cakes, but for a coffee or some beer. They do have a nice collection of beer here!
Let me tell you a secret, the baker behind this ugly cake shop is not ugly at all. She was leading a team at Singapore’s State of Fun (I am sure you now where that is) before she decided to fulfill her dream of having a cake shop.
Her bakes are named quite interesting after her ex-colleagues and friends! Take a look at her collection here, maybe you might know her ex-colleagues!
The pop up was held at the back of the cafe. Never knew it was big enough to have this and it’s air-conditioned too!
The cakes, cupcakes and jewellery do match don’t they? So there’s an alternative that you know now, if you are looking for healthier food for yourself and family.
They use high quality ingredients. Good butter, French cocoa etc.
I know people want to order birthday cakes that are beautiful, tasty and also healthy.
If you buy their bake goods, you are also indirectly contributing to a under nourished kids at Timor-Leste. I also love the fact that Ugly Cake Shop gives part of their profits to a school in Timor-Leste. The school has a nutrition fund and the kids that are under nourished are fed through this fund.
The more I like at her cakes, it reminds me of photos in a Donna Hay magazine. Don’t you think so?
I am so so tempted to use my finger to swipe some cream off!
More matching blings and cakes! The beautiful blings are all from www.theaccessoryreport.com
Take a look at their prices, very reasonable!
Their cupcakes are delicious, moist and taste very real. You know when you bite into it, that there’s no artificial additives that you sometimes get from other places. Just ask kids to blind test and they can tell!
