While fondant cakes may be all the rage now, thanks to their beautiful appearances, one Singaporean baker is bucking the trend with chiffon cakes. But don’t brush her cakes off as plain-looking because they are anything but.
Singaporean baker and author Susanne Ng recently made headline news for her cute creations. A scroll through her Instagram page and you’ll see some of her creations, which include Pusheen, Winnie the Pooh, Captain America Tsum Tsum and many other cute characters.
Each cake has intricate details but get this – they’re all made with chiffon cakes. Just layers of chiffon cakes in various colours – no fondant, no buttercream (which we assume to be healthier too!).
Looking at her cakes, you would think she has decades of experience, but according to The Straits Times, she took up baking only three years ago! In an interview with the newspaper, she revealed that she spends an average of 16 hours on a 3D chiffon cake.
Although she currently doesn’t have a bakery, a scour through her website suggests that she takes order – but not for commercial characters due to copyright reasons.
