Watch Delcie’s Health Story – from HealthyMeTV.com.sg 2012
From an early age, Delcie’s passion for confectionery artistry was ignited when she won a cake mixer from a lucky draw. Since then, Delcie became obsessed with baking while experimenting in the kitchen – cracking eggs, measuring flour and whisking batter. Emerging as the top student from Raffles Design Institute’s Visual Communication, she has thrilled many with her charming and intricate graphic designs and became known as Noise Top 20 Local Designer in 2006. Delcie’s unmistakable artistic talents were noticed and she quickly became an art director in Doyle Dane and Bernbach (DDB) Singapore. As she was so committed to her day job, Delcie hardly find time to bake anymore. However, always encouraged to follow her heart and share her love for food with others, she quit her highly loved job after 2 years to pursue her childhood desire. Finally, she brings the world, Delcie’s Desserts and Cakes.
In 2008, Delcie began her business in a humble shop at a quiet Bishan neighborhood, co-sharing her shop with a bubble-tea shop owner who eventually abandoned the shop, fleeing to Malaysia and leaving Delcie with only a chiller and her cake mixer. She eventually took over the entire shop space and started her little baking haven quietly. Many bakers would have started their baking business from home but Delcie strongly believes in being responsible in her baking by providing an assurance for all her customers to bake in a shop and not from home.
Since then, she never turn back and uses her baking techniques as her paintbrush to create fine works of art in this confectionery medium. As a testament to her great skill, Delcie had won the first prize in Prima Deli’s Horoscope Cake Design Competition in 2005 and her cake designs were sold in all Prima Deli’s retail outlets.
Ever since her mother passed away due to stomach and intestine cancer, Delcie became a strong advocate to healthy eating as she believes that food can either be your medicine or your poison. Because of this, Delcie pioneered the technique in baking Organic, Egg Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free and Diabetic Friendly cakes in Singapore.
Together with her team of highly specialised cake chefs, Delcie aspires to spread healthy eating choices because cakes and desserts can now be sinlessly good too!
