Welcome to the Hearts and Hands Blog

Welcome to the Hearts and Hands blog, where we hope to update photos of some of our cakes and desserts from time to time, following feedback from some of you that photos of the cakes would be appreciated.

As some of you already know, as part of our commitment to support a charitable cause through baking, we will be accepting orders for cakes and donating all proceeds to the selected charitable organisation. This year, the proceeds will be in aid of the new school building fund of Eden School (previously known as Singapore Autism School), a school for children and young persons with autism. Eden School aims to provide quality educational and vocational services in a nurturing environment for persons on the autism spectrum. The school is presently occupying a former school building in Yuan Ching Road and will move to a new purpose-built school in Bukit Batok in the middle of this year. The school needs to raise $1.9 million to fund its new building. Read more about Eden School here.

So, for a start, here is a posting on the Daisies and Butterflies cake, which was a special request that we did recently for a little girl's baptism. On the inside, a triple layer of Valrhona Indulgence Cake covered with Dark Chocolate Ganache, and on the outside, fondant tinted a girlish shade of pink and brightened with cheerful daisies and delicate icing sugar butterflies. All the hard work was worth it when I saw the smile on the girl's face, and her "complaint" to her mom after the cake was cut that there was not enough cake.
