#FestivalForGood is happening tomorrow and the day after (20th & 21st August), and it's Singapore's first ever festival put together to celebrate and raise awareness of social enterprises! Social enterprises are unlike usual businesses as they work towards furthering their social cause and mission in a financially sustainable way.

With the motivation to provide financial support in helping to feed the children in Timor-Leste's Shallom School, Ugly Cake Shop was born! All the cakes here have stories behind them and are adorably and meaningfully named after people in the owners' lives. This here was the day's special, Desmond. Served warm, dig through the crisped top into the fluffy bottoms of the grilled butter cakes, together with the sourish yet delightfully sweet cherry compote and orange blossom cream. The elements on the plate married very nicely with a play on the variety of textures and flavours. This should be on the permanent menu! 😍

Your support to these social enterprises goes a long way and means a lot to them. Be #partofthegood simply by dining in!🍴 In the month of August at Ugly Cake Shop, indulge in their lovely cupcakes at 10% off any available flavours in shop (excluding the 6 piece box).

A huge thank you to @ttheuglycakeshop for the warm hospitality and @burpple for the kind invite! 🙆🏻


Nestled in Geylang Bahru, this humble bakery channels a part of their profits towards feeding the children in Shallom School, a school set up by Brazilian missionaries and supported by Agape Baptist Church in Singapore. Unlike its name, the bakes here are delicate and beautiful. Come for their legendary cupcakes like the Sally ($3.80) and the Vicki ($3.80). The former is a dense, dark chocolate cupcake frosted with a lusciously rich and creamy peanut butter frosting while the latter is a buttery cupcake with a surprise centre — flowy, golden molten salted egg yolk custard. While you're there, show some love to Desmond ($7.50) — a grilled butter cake with orange blossom cream and sour cherry compote that is best eaten on the spot. Some of the cupcake flavours have been upsized to whole cakes, so you can pay it forward and do good on your birthday!
Avg price: $5 per person
