Baker X @ Orchard Central - A Platform For Budding Home-baking Entrepreneurs To Experience A Full-fledged Retail Business


Baker X is a new baking studio and cafe at Orchard Central mall by Far East Organization in Orchard Road. Baker X is unlike any other cafe. It features a line-up of home-based bakers who will take up two to six weeks of residency. It aims to support bakers who wish to explore opening their own full-fledged outlets. Besides savouring the delicious bakes by the different resident home bakers, customers can also have a cup of aromatic coffee by Foreword Coffee Roasters to go with the bakes.


Kicking off the project, the baking studio and cafe welcome White's Bakery as the first resident baker, operating from 20 December 2021 to 9 January 2022. Customers can look forward to having a taste of their signature creamy Basque Cheesecake (large slice from $10 / 6-inch 1kg whole cake from $38) and Korean Fat Macarons (any 6 for $30).




The basque cheesecakes by White's Bakery are rich in flavour yet light in sweetness. There are seven flavours - Original, Matcha, Hojicha, Earl Grey, Taro, Lotus Biscoff Cookie Butter. and Cookies & Cream. We tried a couple of them. The Hojicha is packed with intensive, and the Taro is a unique take of the traditional orh nee. However, my personal favourite is the Cookies & Cream, which is well balanced.



As for the Korean Fat Macarons, they come in a delicate crispy shell. We had the Pistachio, Taro and Cheese. My favourite is the cheese Korean fat macarons as I prefer savoury over sweet. During this festive season, the Korean fat macarons are available in special Christmas flavours, including Peppermint Mocha, Toffee Nut, and Hot Chocolate, inspired by the ever-popular festive drinks created by a famous coffee chain.



Complementing the different bakes from the various resident home bakers are coffee from Foreword Coffee Roasters. This social enterprise aims to provide an inclusive work environment for neurodiverse individuals.


The unique concept allows budding home-baking entrepreneurs a chance to run their operations at a physical outlet at no cost and to scale their production. On the other hand, Far East Organization aims to encourage the entry of new brands to the mall by providing customers with more choices, promoting greater diversity, and enhancing Singapore's retail ecosystem.
