bakes, by ve

Having spent so much time at home during the recent circuit breaker period, Vera Tan dabbled into making bread as a weekend project. Little did she expect herself to venture into setting up a home-based baking business - making small batches at a time. Thus bakes, by ve was born.

As a weekend baker, Vera enjoys exploring and creating new artisanal flavours and venturing into other baked goodies. While she specialises in bread loaves, Vera has recently also started making brownies. Her star product is the subtly sweet Longan & Walnut Bread Loaf with dried longan pieces that add a little chewy texture to the soft fluffy loaf. Another highlight is the Chocolate & Sea Salt Loaf with delightful melted chocolate bits!

Preorders open weekly via a link that will be shared on Instagram @bakesbyve and Facebook.

Glazed Desserts

A love for social media got this mum to talk about her home baking journey - which like most stay-at-home mothers was all about tea time and playdates. Fast forward to innumerable requests on recipes, baking tips and classes - Glazed became a full-fledged business catering to home baking orders. A perfectionist to the finest detail, Munira has now been making customized cakes for over 3 years and is known to take her time with each order that comes in. She loves a good challenge too!

Munira also does live tutorials on her page, demonstrating techniques and answering questions as a way of giving back and staying in tune with her home baking community.

The Spatula and the Pen

A ‘Baker of Stories’ Ng Li Tying started The Spatula and the Pen to unleash her baking ideas in accordance with the personality of her friends and family (who she initially baked for). When stories and photos of her bakes gained traction on social media, she realised there was a gap in the market for personalisation of baked goods. In a quest to make special occasions all that more exceptional, she started making celebratory cakes and desserts and since then has gathered a bevvy of fans. One look at her Instagram page and we promise you will be craving desserts, cakes and everything sugary. And those brownies - don’t even get us started!
