About Love Kuching Project

And if all the therapy cats are occupied, there's always Cowboy the resident cat, who continues to remain unimpressed and indifferent to anything and everything that goes on around here.
He does love his chin scratches, though ^_^
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.
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'.
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.
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.

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. 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.

Somebody out there is crazy enough to think our crude li'l bakery is going to become a "Future Classic". LOL WTF SRSLY? Check back in 10 years time and see, k.
I dunno what they're smoking but they invited us to be part of some 'designery' event at ... the National Design Centre, of course, duh. 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.
(this one example picture onli)
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
Organised by Kapok Singapore (they must REALLY be smokin sumthin)
Hosted at National Design Centre, 111 Middle Road
