Ugly Cake Shop is a halal bakery founded in 2014, best known for its buttercream cakes that are free of artificial flavours, fondants and gum paste. 

If you prefer cakes with more subtle, natural flavours, Ugly Cake Shop has curated a purple flower power cake (from S$55) and ombre purple cupcakes (S$26 for a box of six) for International Women’s Day — in line with the official colours of the occasion.  

The flavour of the cake can be selected from some of its popular cakes, such as the Big Daddy, a chocolate and nutella cake. However, the cupcakes have fixed flavours – orange butter and chocolate, both finished with vanilla buttercream.

This female-owned business will be donating 10% of its sale proceeds towards Daughters of Tomorrow, a group supporting underprivileged women. 

Here’s something special for HungryGoWhere’s readers — the bakery is offering 10% off its International Women’s Day specials with the promo code “CAKESFORHGW”. The discount is only valid until Mar 8, 11.59pm and cannot be used with other promotions or discounts.

It just so happens that International Women’s Day is a pretty special occasion for the brand, too. 

A female-founded brand, Haagen Dazs will be giving away its founder’s favourite Haagen Dazs’ flavour – vanilla.

This will be the brand’s biggest global giveaway to date, and will take place in all Haagen Dazs Singapore shops between March 6 and March 10, before 5pm. Simply order a cup of vanilla ice cream and receive another one in return.
