Microgram (@microgram.sg) is next in line to take over the residency at Baker X. The home-based bakery was founded in 2020 by Bryan Tay, an aspiring self-taught home baker driven by the passion to transform his love for cakes into a fulfilling full-time profession. Having left behind a successful corporate career, Bryan embarked on a journey to start his own home bakery business, specialising in layered cakes redolent of beloved Singaporean flavours. Committed to delivering artisanal cakes of exceptional taste and visual appeal, Bryan uses the freshest and highest quality ingredients. Microgram first launched with their signature Ondeh Ondeh Cake and has since expanded its assortment of sweet confections.
About Baker X
Launched in December 2021 by Far East Organization, Baker X aims to support home-based bakers by providing them with an opportunity to have first-hand experience running a brick-and-mortar storefront and interacting with customers face-to-face with a fully fitted baking studio and a 20-seater café.
Patrons can dine in or takeaway the baked goods at the café on Level 4 of Orchard Central (opposite Genki Sushi). The café is operated in tandem with social enterprise, Tea Ideas.
There will be a line-up of bakers throughout the year, and each baker will be in residence for between 2 to 6 weeks.
During Microgram’s residency, delight in crowd-favourite flavours, such as:
Ondeh Ondeh ($7.50 per slice)
This is their signature cake, comprising three layers of moist pandan-infused sponge, lavished with gula melaka. The aromatic treat is encased in a generous coat of grated coconut, accentuated with a drizzle of gula melaka syrup.
Pineapple Coconut ($8 per slice)
This is a piña colada-inspired cake, featuring caramelised pineapple compote and velvety coconut cream spread between soft, fluffy coconut sponges. The cake is decorated with a two-tone pineapple-infused chantilly cream and crowned with toasted coconut for a delightful crunch.
New Cake Creations & More
Recently launched in April, look forward to creations, such as:
Earl Grey Lychee Cake ($8 per slice)
Between each layer of fluffy sponge, the cake is coated with earl grey-infused fresh cream and lychee bits for a refreshing burst of natural sweetness. The cake is adorned with frosting and a luscious milk ganache, both with a light touch of earl grey as well.
Pandan Taro Coconut Cake ($8 per slice)
This is an ambrosial ensemble, highlighting fragrant pandan sponge and smooth taro paste. Enveloped in a light coconut cream, the cake is topped with a refreshing layer of coconut jelly and toasted coconut.
Other notable flavours include:
Chendol ($8 per slice)
Raspberry Pandan ($8 per slice)
Milk Tea ($8 per slice)
Bobo Chacha ($8 per slice)
