Many Singaporeans love food – our love for food – well, no literature can describe, really. With Instagram so widely used now, at least a third of my feeds in there are all about delicious stuff we put into our mouths and of course, they usually look so gorgeous too. My addiction to sweet pastries (especially pretty ones) has never been properly addressed as it deserves because I’m a weight watcher. How to fit into my favourite dresses if I were to carry those extra pounds?! But I couldn’t resist Butter Studio‘s (Bakery/Cafe/Food & Grocer) invitation to have a meal there after visiting their Facebook page! Especially since it’s only a stone’s throw away from Bunc@Radius where we had our weekend staycation with friends couple of weeks ago. Pss…it was 23rd November too, our monthsary! Time to forget the discipline and tuck right in! Sometimes we need to treat ourselves a little better
Here’s a sincere little introduction by Butter Studio:
“Butter Studio is a home grown gourmet confectionary and we bake to feed and to share. Deeply inspired by the home baked childhood favourites we grew up with, we took all that traditional goodness, gave them a modern spin and share them with people who have the same love affair for good food.
We honour home baking traditions and handcraft treats fresh on premise daily. Chic yet unassuming, our bakes are packed with honest, rustic goodness made to make you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside.
To keep things real, we do not use any preservatives or stabilizers and bake in limited quantities daily with the best possible ingredients – Australian butter, European style sweet butter cream and fresh fruits. Constantly experimenting and re-crafting to create bakes that surprise and delight, packed with whole goodness we know Mom would approve of.”
To be honest, I get really turned on by handmade goodies and even better when things like “do not use any preservatives” are mentioned! So hungry now just thinking about the cupcakes we had at Butter Studio!
It has an intimately cosy interior with elaborate decor for guests and customers to enjoy their delicacies. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon to chill, relax and catch up with friends! It also boasts pleasant and helpful service staff! In Ash’s words, “the ambience of the restaurant was very warm and homely – a good place to chill and unwind from the tension of the city.”

Don’t you just love how all the beautiful decor are being put together? I’m drawn to all details quirky, unique and unexpected!
We were served a lovely selection of gourmet cupcakes, including a tantalizing red velvet cupcake, homestyle maple walnut loaf cake, Belgian chocolate tarts, butter loaf cakes, artisanal tarts/ pies and seasonal treats. They sure taste as great as they look! Mmm…the mere recall of these goodies makes me want to go back again!
As pretty as the decoration and icing on the cupcakes may be, the real deal is actually the spongy cake at the bottom! Excellent taste that’s yet light and not too sweet. I couldn’t help taking second helpings!
I really like the maple walnut loaf cake. The aroma from maple syrup and walnut blended into one goodie is simply too good to be true. Thankfully, it is also not too sweet so that we could savor the freshness and real taste of the different ingredients.
We ordered too many cupcakes! Here’s one with topped with chocolate and marshmallows. Double yum!
I highly recommend this! Artisan loaf topped with cheese, ham and egg.
Shannon also dropped by from the kitchen to serve us freshly baked turkey bacon lagsana topped with rosemary leafs. It wasn’t in the menu apparently, as the main course for the day differs from day to day. Home-baked food certainly tastes fresher and healthier than commercial sodium laced dishes we are used to having every day.
Some of the guys were greedy and ordered a muddy mud cake to share. It was served warm, with the chocolate melting from the top. The chocolate seemed a little too generous for my diet but everyone else enjoyed it of course! Here are some macaroons too for your visual pleasure. They are super good – a must-try!
These are not real cupcakes I took, but of a poster in the cafe They cheered me up so much!
With the friendly and lovely Shannon, owner of Butter Studio. She gave a quick introduction of the place and invited me to her Christmas market this weekend! More details at the end of this post!
As you can tell I can’t get enough of snapping pictures of the cafe! Love it!
Ahhhh look at those cupcakes! Needless to say I’m instantly attracted to the Christmas tree and rainbow ones!!! I speak colorful
