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 10-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.
Throughout their residency, customers can anticipate locally inspired flavours such as Orh Nee ($1.80 each), which sees a buttery tart crust filled with creamy yam paste and topped with ginkgo nuts for added texture.
Crowd favourites include Lemon Meringue ($3.20 each) and Strawberry ($3.80 each). The former features tangy lemon curd and is embellished with sweet Italian meringue, while the latter is filled with luscious strawberry cream and crowned with fresh strawberries.
An exclusive offer available at Baker X is the signature Egg Tart, which will be available for purchase at a special price of $1 (U.P $1.30).
Mother's Day Special
To celebrate Mother’s Day, Flash Bakes is also offering a Box of 6 Fruit Tarts at $15 (U.P. $21.60). It’s the perfect gift for any dessert-loving mum, featuring the home bakers’ bestselling flavours - 2 Strawberry Tarts, 2 Lemon Meringue Tarts, as well as a new flavour - Mango, that was launched in celebration of Mother’s Day and Flash Bakes’ residency at Baker X. An enticing harmony of sweet and tangy, the Mango Tart ($3.80 each) highlights a fragrant butter crust with light mango cream and fresh mango cubes.
About Flash Bakes Mother-Daughter Duo
Run by mother-daughter duo Christina and Esther, Flash Bakes specialises in thin-crust tarts. With Esther’s penchant for tarts with generous filling and a thin crust, Christina sought to create the perfect tart for her daughter. The quality of Flash Bakes’ buttery tarts and fragrant fillings brought the duo great popularity, and they soon veered from offering egg tarts alone. All tarts at Flash Bakes are baked in small batches to ensure freshness and quality, and through their homemade bakes, the two hope that the familiar flavours bring warmth and comfort to customers.
