Wedding Cakes

We decided to have both traditional teochew biscuits & modern cakes as part of 过大礼.

We ordered our tradition teochew biscuits, commonly known as Wu Se Tang 伍色糖 from Gin Thye Cake Maker. They have been around since 1964 and extremely popular at specializing in traditional wedding cakes.

伍色糖 are traditional wedding gifts from a Teochew bride to her relatives and it consisted of dou sha bing, ming tang, dou run, dou gong & lao ma gao.

For the western cakes, we went to Pine Gardens, one of my fave neighbourhood bakery.

Cake collection!

The set consisted of 9 mini cakes in their signature flavours, which includes tiramisu, lychee martini cake (their best-selling item), cheesecake, orange apricot blossom cake, strawberry shortcake, triple layer chocolate cake (my fave!), citrus drop, black-forest and raspberry chocolate cake. All my relatives were full of praises for the cakes & we were glad that we went ahead to order from Pine Gardens :)
