Grounded Airline Worker's Crepe Cake Home Biz So Good, She Opens Takeout Shop
Two Bake Boys started out as a humble HBB selling four cakes a day. It now sells 20.
Since our feature on Two Bake Boys last August, Kitty R’s home-based crepe cake business has been on the rise. Back then, we spoke to the 36-year-old “aviation industry professional” in her family condo where her business first began. Her husband Philip Yap, 37, also an airline worker, has been helping her with deliveries, logistics and “whatever she needs”. Kitty started selling cakes from home after dealing with a pay cut amid a dramatic pause in her jet-setting life (her company’s name is withheld in this article due to a confidentiality clause). But as they say: when one door closes, another opens. In the intervening nine months, she’s had a fivefold increase in orders, introduced eight new flavours (there are a total of 10, three of which are Thai tea-based), and moved to a bigger kitchen in a rented house before finally settling into her new central kitchen and takeaway shop at CT Hub 2 in Lavender a week ago.
“Orders have been consistent since last October, which gave me the confidence to move [to a bigger space],” shares the radiant Thai-born Singaporean PR, who launched Two Bake Boys last July. “We chose this location as we can provide drive-through service for cake collection.”
