Bakes By Ben (@bakesbyben.tld) is next to take up residency at Baker A small, specialised home-based business, Bakes by Ben is a heartfelt endeavour born out of Ben's passion for baking, sharing, and connecting with others.
Growing up with autism, 17 year old Ben contended with sensory challenges in the kitchen, ranging from fear of heat from the stove and oven to an aversion towards loud mixer noises. Yet with an unwavering spirit, resolute passion for the art of cooking and baking, and consistent time spent developing his expertise, Ben has far surpassed these obstacles and emerged as a confident young baker.
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.
Bakes by Ben
Recognising the opportunity for Ben to develop valuable practical life skills and work towards independent living, Ben’s parents took the leap and started this venture, offering Ben’s signature Walnut Chocolate Brownies.
Signature Bakes and More
