Love them! It's really sweet (totally up my lane) but maybe too sweet for some. Love the chocolate the most, followed by salted caramel. Service could be a tad better though.

They named themselves the Ugly Cake Shop because their cakes does not contain any artificial ingredients​ and using buttercream instead of fondant. Hence, losing out on the beautifully looking cake that are usually full of sugar frosting and dyes.
​
Visited them with the main purpose to try their Sally (Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate) cupcakes but they're unavailable during our visit 😭 Still, we decided to try the remaining available flavours.

Unfortunately while transporting them back, Big Daddy went for a 🎒 ride which turns out too ugly for a πŸ“· but that was also my favourite flavour among those three. I would say that their 🍰 are really moist and fluffy and not too 🍬, good enough for the young and old πŸ‘ͺ.

I also got to learn about other social initiatives in Singapore such as RunningHour (my friend tried walking blindfolded through a short obstacle course) and I'm Soul Inc, who uses a motion sensor music-making device Soundbeam to engage the elderly and disabled to create their own music. I tried it out - it's like having an invisible drum set, and the sounds/beats are formed by passing my hands over the sensors and tapping feet on the pedals, quite tough but intriguing for psychomotor-challenged me 😝

There was also a pop-up market, where I got to meet the folks from Ugly Cake Shop again! They've been sponsoring the nutrition fund of a school in Timor Leste since the start of their business, feeding the malnourished kids. What started as a small class with a handful of students has grown to a school of over 300 youths, hence a growing fund as well.

The festival may have ended, but the festivities for #DineForGood continue the rest of August. Ugly Cake Shop is offering 10% off all available cupcakes in store (except the 6pc box price)! Featured in the pic are Vicki (salted egg yolk custard), Jamie (earl grey with orange blossom whipped cream), and my favourite Carmen (lemon coconut meringue) cuz I'm a sucker for tart and sweet notes. Yes, Vicki comes with a flowing centre, heated before serving. But how are these prettily piped cupcakes 'ugly'? Well, there aren't any artificial colouring or fondant used in the cupcakes for "beautification", hence the contradictory name. Nah, give me natural and quality flavouring any time!

Thanks @Burpple for the invite, and @raiSEsg and @uglycakeshop for hosting the tasting! #Burpple

#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! πŸ™†πŸ»

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 β€” flowy, golden molten salted egg yolk custard. While you're there, show some love to Desmond ($7.50) β€” 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
