Mydearbakes was delighted to be invited to the grand opening of The Baking Studio (“TBS”) held at 201 Telok Kurau Road on 1 Jan 2014. It was filled with guests and there was an air of anticipation as all waited for Leza Parker to introduce the first ever baking central website in Singapore.
We like to encourage you to read all the way to the bottom of this post to find out how you can take part in the giveaway sponsored by The Baking Studio! =D
Meanwhile, check out the photos from the opening!
Thumbs up to The Baking Studio’s opening! =D
Check out the goodies from our local bakers!!
So much yummy goodies to choose from!
We also had the honor of interviewing Leza herself!!!
VERY IMPORTANT. – Read the interview carefully as the answer to our giveaway event with TBS is within this interview!! =P
MDB : Hi Leza, thank you so much for taking time out for this interview. Now for starters, can you tell us a little bit about yourself.
Leza: I’m a mum of three, the founder of four fantastic businesses – Bebebows.com, Spendless Cosmetics, The Leza Parker Network and The Baking Studio. At the same time, I’m a business coach who delivers regular training programs.
MDB: Tell us what inspired you to start up The Baking Studio?
Leza : There are a lot of home bakers out there in Singapore who had the whole package – their bakes were good! From the bake sale today, you can see that they had the packaging as well. The only thing limiting them was issues on obtaining the valid licenses, work space and the marketing aspect of how to get people to know about their products. Hence, the idea of The Baking Studio (TBS) was born – it’s an ideal place where bakers can use our studio to hold baking classes and/or rent the kitchen without running into issues against the law!
MDB: So tell us more about The Baking Studio.
Leza : As mentioned, at TBS you can rent the professional kitchen starting from $38/hour ($19 if you are a member) to fulfill the various orders that you have from your customers. You can also rent the space to hold classes at $90 /hour ($48 for members). Additionally, we also hold baking sales fair once every quarter and this is an opportunity for home bakers to sign up and setup their “shop” to sell their bakes!
What we are most excited though is the one-stop website that we have just launched today. It’s called The Baking Central (TBC) – http://www.thebakingcentral.com/. This is where bakers can advertise their bakes/store online for only $99/year (basic package) or $149/year (premium package).
This is the first baking website in South East Asia where customers can go to a central website and browse online for various bakers. From our website, prospective customers can look at the bakers’ profiles and their signature bakes.
Which means, instead of you (the baker), going to look for customers, TBC will bring the customers to you!
MDB: That’s really interesting. I also see that you have a roadmap all the way to 2015! Can you tell us more about your plans?
Leza: Well, in September this year we plan to launch The Baking Alley and next year, 2015 we plan to bring this concept to Malaysia. You can find out more about our roadmap here. http://www.thebakingstudio.sg/about_us
MDB: I see it’s going to be an exciting and interesting journey for you. I wish you all the best and success for TBS.
Leza : Thank you.
