First Gavia Booth @ SUTD 2016 | Blog

First Gavia Booth @ SUTD 2016

It was my first Gavia booth. Nevertheless, everything went well. I’m happy that the response turned out well and everything was sold out at the end of the event.

Gavia Muffins

Lemon Blueberry Muffins, Banana Chocolate Muffins, and Orange Cranberry Almond Muffins. These are some of my favorite sugar-free recipes. A lovely lady bought a Lemon Blueberry Muffins to try and instantly love it! She ordered 40 muffins in one goal. 

To receive such support from people like her, I really appreciate it. 

Apple Cakes

I’m really happy that I could finally use some of my cake stands.

Honestly, it was hard work, I didn’t expect working to be so hard at all. During that period, I actually did not get to sleep well at all. Other than juggling my usual errands, I had to pick up extra ingredients for the booth, transport stuff, mass baking, prepare packagings, and cleaning up here and there.

I had to end my end around 3 AM and get up at 6 AM to prepare to get ready to the event venue.  The event started at 8 AM and all the way till 6 PM. Which I have to pack and clean up afterward. There will be always be walking by asking for more information etc, I recalled that I did not get have my lunch all the way until 4 PM. I got home around 8 PM, showered and rest. Then get ready for the following day till 3 AM again. 

Luckily, it was only a 2-day event. Yet, I am happy that I participated because more people can know about Gavia and I can gain experience from it. Not only that, I met many new friends!

For some of my followers who came over to support me too, thank you!

Cheese Tarts – SG Food Trends 2016

Cheese TartsCheese Tarts are taking over Singapore and everyone is crazy about it. 

Cheese TartsIt started with a Japanese bakery, BAKE which made Singaporeans queued for almost 2 hours on the first-day opening to get these babies.

Now, you could get these Cheese Tarts almost anywhere in Singapore. Most bakeries have adopted their take on these tarts.

 Cheese Tarts

Feeling fancy to make some at home? Try my Cheese Tarts recipe! It is actually very simple. These Cheese Tarts are to die for! And they tasted best when it’s warm, so make sure to reheat it in a toaster oven before you serve!
