Hidden inside a quiet HDB estate in the middle of Tai Seng — that’s probably not a spot you’d expect to find a modern artisan bakery like Frosted by Fang

However, you might soon see more pastry aficionados in the area, as fans of the popular home-based bakery will probably be headed down its first physical store.

Admittedly, it might not seem to be the most convenient location, but it’s smack in the middle of three MRT stations, so you can get there easily on the many buses servicing the area.

Frosted by Fang is headed by eponymous founder Lee Su Fang, who first founded it eight years ago as a self-taught baker.

After gaining numerous fans and getting the opportunity to pop-up as one of the guest bakers-in-residence at Orchard Central’s Baker X, Lee decided it was time for a brick-and-mortar location.

For its debut, Frosted by Fang will be a takeaway concept located on the first floor at one of the HDB flats at Joo Seng Green.

Though the decor is kept simple, it stands out from the rest of the tenants. Its decor welcomes customers with elegant neutral tones and light birch accents.

As with its decor, the bakes here mostly keep to the basics but contain some tasteful touches to elevate them.

Frosted by Fang’s menu changes monthly and August features a few interesting creations — namely the coconut, yuzu and lychee mochi donut (S$4) and classic carrot walnut cake (S$6.50).

If you like a bit more of a chew in your pastries, the former will satisfy you with its unique gelatinous texture. On the other hand, the latter is a fragrant treat where the hearty base pairs well with the frosting.

There’s also the chocolate rum cherry tiramisu (S$16), a rather unique twist on a traditional tiramisu, which consists of rum-soaked cherries, chocolate ganache and espresso ladyfinger biscuits instead of your usual mascarpone custard.

For those who enjoy bakery staples more, cookies and brownies can also be found on the menu.

Cookie monsters will get a choice of two flavours to munch on: Rosemary pistachio cranberry (S$3.80) and browned butter miso chocolate chip (S$3.50),

While cookie fans can get heated about their preferred cookie textures, you get the best of both worlds here; the former is chunky and gooey while the latter sports a crisp and chewy profile.

In case you want something really decadent, Frosted by Fang’s fudgy dark chocolate lavender espresso brownie (S$5.50) will scratch that itch with its potent 70% dark chocolate, accentuated with kisses of florals and coffee.

The brand also offers a customisable cakes (from S$70 for six-inch single tier) service, perfect for those special occasions.

It offers a variety of flavour combos ranging from the tried-and-true chocolate mixed berries to quirkier styles including maple blueberry French toast and matcha strawberry, with the cake base and fillings customisable to your preferences.

Diners can drop a message on the Instagram page to reserve bakes for self-collection or delivery on the days the shop is in operation, with weekly pre-orders opening on Monday.
