And if you’ve been looking out for similar sweet treats in Singapore just like, you’re in luck! Ahead, we have gathered 14 local bakers and bakeries that you can check out for some of the cutest bakes, just like these Psyduck macarons.

From cartoon character mantous and carved pineapple tarts to Korean-inspired fatcarons, our local bakers definitely don’t fall short when it comes to creating unique and one-of-a-kind bakes.

We have all heard about macarons before but have you ever heard of fatcarons? If you are someone who constantly keeps up with the latest trends from Korea, then this term is definitely not new to you. Fatcarons are basically your classic macarons but stuffed with a thicker layer of cream in the centre and with more ingredients like candy, fruits, and many more, definitely one that is suitable for the gram.

Known as one of the pioneers who first brought in fatcarons to the Singapore pastry market, Nanatang has even introduced their own fatfat-carons that are double the thickness and of course, double the goodness too. The fatcaron menu currently consists of 10 flavours and is sold in a set for S$35.

Meanwhile, the fatfat-carons feature classic favourite flavours such as strawberry shortmac and oreo cheesecake as well as local flavours like kaya fancy cheese and ondeh ondeh. A set of four (consisting of the same flavours) are priced at S$30 while a box of eight is priced at S$52.

Other than fatcarons, the patisserie also specialises in various customised cakes like brownies, swiss rolls and cupcakes. If you happen to be interested in getting your hands on baking, Nanatang also offer various baking classes that you can consider taking up!
