Thank you for your interest to find out more about our co-sharing project.

First and foremost, Delcie’s is NOT a kitchen rental service or rental business. Each of us at Baking Friends Forever have our own bakery businesses to run. The reason why we are doing this is because we see home bakers struggle day-to-day trying to run a legal business but producing food from home for public sales is TOTALLY illegal. What we are trying to do here is to make full use of our extra kitchen space to help bakers like yourself, run an online bakery with a legal food license by co-sharing our NEA food approved space  so your start-up cost will be kept to the minimal without having to invest in renovating a shop, pay high rental or purchase heavy equipments before you get a solid customer base. Your objective to co-share on this project should be to test the market, build a customer base and develop a proper product range before you jump start into running your own shop and risk losing everything you have saved up for.

Before we meet you as a potential communal baker, you must be 100% sure you can meet the following requirements:

  • Is looking to start your legal online baking business within 1 month.
  • Is not shopping for kitchen rental quotations
  • Understand you have to co-share our rental and utility bill by paying at least $400 a month
  • Ensure you have enough cash flow to tie over the quiet baking months.
  • Requires only 4 hours a week to produce your products. (more hours can be allocated according to your requirements and the cosharing fees will be adjusted according to usage)
  • Able to sign on a communal co-share contract of minimum one (1) year placing a security deposit of $2,500. (if you are looking at a shorter term contract or pay lesser deposit, we are not interested. It will only mean you are not serious in building a successful business and is not willing to take minimal business risk.)
  • To move your home operation 100% into legal kitchen production (no more home baking for sale. If you would like to continue baking from home to sell to people and use our license at the same time, we are not interested as this is an act of irresponsibility putting all co-sharing bakers at risk and deceiving your customers.)
  • Is independent in running your own business (we share ideas among the communal bakers on how to market our products but if you are looking for mentors or people who can help you in running your business, we are unable to spoon feed as we have done this before and we witness those whom we spoon feed, fail in their bakery business)
  • Must be able to use Halal Ingredients – non alcohol ingredients
  • Do not use any meat ingredients in your baking
  • Works alone or with 1 other partner (we do not allow business with more than 2 working partners as we have witnessed high risk of business failing with more than 2 business partners)
  • Purchase your own ingredients (we have a list of suppliers which you can open your own purchasing account with them; we do not share ingredients)
  • Do not require chiller/freezer space to keep ingredients or baked items overnight (24/7 chiller/freezer storage can be arranged if you are willing to pay for additional electricity bill)
  • We do have dry storage space to store your personal belonging 24/7 (not for cooked food).
  • Is willing to take communal responsibility such as:
    • using fresh ingredients
    • sell only fresh food
    • clean up your assigned area after using
    • work within your allocated hours
    • respect other co-sharing baker’s business and working/storage spaces
    • no duplication of co-sharing baker’s recipes
    • Purchase your own personal accident plan
    • Get your own Food Hygiene certification (1 full day course with exam)

If you are able to fulfill the above prerequisite, we are willing to meet you and/or your business partner. If you would like to invite your friends or family who is/are not involved in your business partnership to the premise, we will suggest to meet them only after your confirmation (we have experienced interested parties who brought their friends and family who did not respect our kitchen, overstepped the boundaries, overly questioning each communal baker’s individual businesses and/or not focusing on the topic of setting up their own business).

Please understand that when we decide to meet up with you, we are taking time away from our own bakery business to share this opportunity with you.

—–
Alternatively, we have a package of $2000 per month excluding utilities for full month usage. 6 full working days access.

 

If you are able to meet the above prerequisite and would like to arrange for a meet up,

  2. Delcie says:

    Hi Linda, setting up a proper kitchen is indeed expensive. You can ask the other resident bakers who are baking with me, how much pain and dollars I’ve threw into making this community baking project possible for all. Still, I’m happy to help if you are a serious baker like all of us. ;) Will fill you in with the details when we meet up.

    Hi

    Great to see what you’ve done here. I actually do have an interest in baking. I have baked before but unfortunately not very consistently. People who have tried my desserts seem to really like them though. Any advice on how to go about on starting a home business? Eventually i have a goal to work from home.

  9. Delcie says:

    If you plan to work from home. I’m afraid that food business would not be possible. :) You may like to think of other business. You may write to me at delcie.lam@delciesdesserts.com to discuss further.

  11. Ivy says:

    Hi, I’m into cake decoration and would like to turn my hobby into some profits. Could you share with me on selling cakes part-time and baking from home?

  12. Delcie says:

    Hi Ivy,

    Baking and selling from home is illegal and require you a licensed kitchen to bake for sale. As I am currently baking under Whisk and Fold’s community baking project, all bakers who are part of the project are baking for sale using the commercial kitchen that we all share. You may be interested in such a project. Write to me at delcie.lam@delciesdesserts.com

    Hi Felicia,

    thanks for your interest. We are like yourself, who have passion in baking and wanting to set up a business, fully committed into it. If you have quit your job and is looking into setting up a bakery full time, we can talk further.

  17. Lianz says:

    I have just started baking at home and keen to find out more about running a home bakery and the setup part of it. Can I find out more about the licensing and also Whisk and Fold’s community baking project? It sounds very exciting.

  18. Delcie says:

    Dear Siew Lian,

    Congratulation on embarking your baking journey! I wish you best!

    Dear Siew Lian,

    Thank you for reading our blog.

    Running a Home-base bakery business is illegal in Singapore. Setting it up is easy as you have no overheads but be careful because NEA doesn’t approve food business conducted in all private housing and HDBs. Do call NEA to check with them on this regulations.

    As for licensing, you will need to obtain a food approved shop first, then get NEA to come down to inspect your shop for approval. There, you will get your license.

    For Whisk and Fold, we initially offer kitchen co-share with bakers who are serious in venturing into the baking business and willing to sign on a 1 year term. There is monthly fee to be paid accordingly and hours allocated to bakers to come in to bake for their orders. However, now, we are fully booked and has no intention of opening up any space for new bakers until further notice. Whisk and Fold is rather strict in the selection of bakers as it only accept FULL Time bakers, not part time bakers.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you for sharing some very useful information. I am interested in starting a small business selling gourmet sandwiches into . Are you aware of any kitchens that are set up similar to yours but for the use of making food other than baked goods? Thank you for your assistance. Regards Kelly

  23. Sophia says:

    Hi, I bake cakes frequently for relatives and friends.They have been asking me to start home bake business, they said my cakes are very beautiful and delicious.So , I am keen to start my home baking online business. Could you advice. Thanks.

  24. Delcies says:

    Hi Sophia, Thanks for reading our website. It’s lovely to know you have beautiful pastries for sales. However, as I have mentioned before, please ensure you are running your online bakery business from a proper NEA licensed food shop and not from your home as it is illegal to sell food from your home. Once you have a shop, you will be safely covered and you may start marketing your products online or offline :)

  25. Delcies says:

    Hi kelly, thank you for visiting our blog. To my current knowledge, I have not heard from another doing the same thing as it involved far too many trouble to share a single kitchen… there will be people who are uncomfortable with sharing kitchen tools, or openly working together so another could see what you put into your cakes/pastries. There are also different dynamic of people whom you may or may not be able to work together… so i guess, not many bakeries are willing to open up their kitchen for share usage. Plus, there are also alot of liabilities to take on as the host bakery… which is also why I have stopped doing it and only kept the responsible bakers on board with me now.

  26. liza says:
