From 3 to 15 May 2022, Egg Sugar Butter (@eggsugarbutter), the seventh in a line-up of home bakers, will take up residency at Baker X baking studio and café in Orchard Central. The home-based patisserie will be offering a variety of cakes and pastries crafted with French pastry techniques and Japanese sensibilities for light textures and unique flavours. Highlights include Japanese-style fresh cream cakes, fresh fruit shortcakes, roll cakes, as well as refreshing fruit tarts and tiramisu.
Baker X was launched by Far East Organization in December 2021 with the aim of supporting bakers who wish to explore scaling up into full-fledged outlets, providing them a business opportunity through Baker X with a fully fitted baking studio and 10-seat café operated in tandem with social enterprise, Foreword Coffee Roasters.
Egg Sugar Butter’s signature shortcakes – Strawberry Shortcake ($9.50) and Raspberry Lychee Shortcake ($9.50) – will be sold in slices at Baker X. The shortcakes feature delicate vanilla sponge cake incorporated with meringue for a soft and airy texture, filled with generous servings of fresh cream and fruit slices. Look forward to patisserie’s well-loved tarts, highlighting classic flavours – Strawberry Tart ($7.50) and Lemon Meringue Tart ($7.50). The Strawberry Tart is crowned with delectable strawberries nestled on a bed of smooth pastry cream in a buttery tart shell. Not to be missed is the Chocolate Rhapsody ($7.50), consisting of smooth dark chocolate mousse with a tart raspberry crémeux finished on crispy chocolate hazelnut feuilletine. Other favourites include Matcha Rollcake ($5.50) which sees a soft Matcha sponge rolled with Matcha fresh cream; Tiramisu ($7.50) in a cup, a popular dessert infused with hand-dripped coffee and whisky, dusted with Valrhona cocoa powder; and the Dark Chocolate Macaron ($16, box of six) consists of cocoa flavoured shells filled with 70% dark chocolate ganache.
