We are a bakery cafe and online cake shop that bakes delicious, artisanal cakes in Singapore and helps to feed hungry kids in Timor-Leste.
Taste the difference – we only use high quality ingredients (i.e. French cocoa, good butter, etc) and all-natural flavour (extracted from fresh fruit and other sources) in our baked goods! No grainy frostings here! ;)
Feed hungry kids – we support undernourished children in Timor-Leste by giving part of our profits to the nutrition fund of a school in Timor-Leste. Help us to help the kids by buying more! (Book early - we need at least 2 working days' advanced notice and full payment, in order to accept your order.)
Why the name?
Ugly Cake Shop does not believe in using artificial colouring, artificial flavours, fondant (too sugary) or gum paste. While these additions make for beautiful cakes, we prefer beautifully balanced cakes (not too sweet) and believe that the more natural ingredients (and the fewer chemicals) you put in your body the better! :) Having said that, we will add artificial food dye to create certain colours upon request.
Feed Hungry Kids
Since January 2014, we have been on an exciting adventure to feed hungry kids in Timor-Leste! :) Armed with a God-given vision to feed the kids, we started Ugly Cake Shop with our baking skills and picky palates.
By selling Ugly Cakes, we get to spread the love (and funds) to a school in Timor-Leste. Part of Ugly Cake Shop’s profits goes towards buying meat, eggs and other much-needed protein sources for the kids in Shallom School, a school set up by Brazilian missionaries and supported by Agape Baptist Church in Singapore. We channel the funds to the nutritional fund at Shallom School through Agape Baptist Church.
Where can you find Ugly Cakes?
