“Bake it till you make it”
My passion for baking started as a hobby in my grandmother's kitchen when I was 14 years old. Watching my mum bake for the entire family, I realised how baking and love went hand in hand. From there, my passion grew, and soon enough I was taking over baking for the family. I would spend hours scouring the internet and cookbooks for new recipes to try.
As I grew older and my passion grew, I began to take an even more active role in developing my baking skills. As a result, I pursued baking courses, including the one at the Cordon Bleu Paris, Institute of Culinary Education in New York and by the famous cake designer, Julian Angel. It soon struck me that most of my time spent outside of my job as a school teacher was devoted to baking because I loved it so much. With a little help from friends and family, I took a leap of faith and quit my day job so that I could make baking a way of life. Now, I am a full time baker, I supply to restaurants all over Singapore, send out personal and corporate orders and participate at pop-up events. I also run baking classes so that everyone has the opportunity to eat delicious cakes made from scratch at home. Everyday in my business brings something new and exciting and I’ve not looked back since starting Amrita’s Artisan Bakeology!
