Ever since the announcement of circuit breaker extending, we’ve come to the realisation that we Singaporeans do love our sweet treats. It’s at a level that’s quite frightening really. Snaking queues were seen all across the country, with Singaporeans wanting to get their final taste of bubble tea (at least until circuit breaker measures are lifted).
With many cake shops and dessert places now closed, where are we going to get our sweet fix?! Luckily for us, all hope is not lost. There are still a number of establishments open for delivery during this extended CB period. Have a look see and maybe treat yourself and your family to some of these delightful desserts and sweets!
During this circuit breaker period, for every care package purchased on Delegate, SGD1 will go to The Courage Fund by National Council of Social Service (NCSS) to support vulnerable individuals and families affected by the COVID-19 situation. We will continue to update this list with more sweet treat options. Check back for more!
Stemmed from a desire to satisfy his girlfriend’s sweet tooth, Elijah experimented with various recipes and created his first Nutella Pie for her. This led to the inception of Elijah Pies, which was built on the belief that desserts bring people closer and are best enjoyed together. Well, there’s certainly no arguing that statement there! Their carefully crafted pies come in a host of delectable flavours too. Our personal favourite being the Raspberry Ripple Pie!
