1. Frosted by Fang

Make way for the trendiest cakes and dessert boxes. That’s right. I am talking about Frosted by Fang’s masterpieces.

Unique flavour profiles that are highly addictive:

Firstly, as soon as you open a mixed box, you will be greeted by the beautiful sight of tea-time treats essentials, and the irresistible aroma of freshly-baked goods. The sight truly brings a smile to my face. Take your pick out of the different treats Fang lovingly selected for you, and get ready to be wowed by the exciting flavour profile that you’ll be greeted with. From salted caramel popcorn miso teacakes, taro mochi cakes, hojicha rhubarb loaf, peanut butter & kaya streusel muffins, to miso oatmeal cranberry cookies, these sweet treats aren’t like any other. Sufang brings classic treats to a whole new level by introducing exciting and unique flavour profiles that will truly bring you to dessert heaven. All in all, if you’re up for being surprised with something new, you should definitely check out Frosted by Fang’s mixed dessert box!

Besides her highly addictive dessert boxes, she specialise in customized cake-making too. Each of her cakes is uniquely conceptualised and tailored to you. Simply share with her more about yourself (or your loved one) – personality, favourite flavours, aesthetic preferences – and she’ll take it from there! She’ll incorporate all the tiny nuggets of information, and whip up the most stunning cake that perfectly describes you!

Order early:

Here is another tip. Due to the high demand as well as the amount of time and care needed for Sufang to produce her products, it would be best to have 1-2 weeks lead time. Nevertheless, she is extremely understanding and will try her best to accomodate last minute orders on a case by case basis.

Delivery: Self-collection
