Since the beginning of last year, we have seen the rise of online bakeries popping up in Penang. Normally, these bakeries are specialised in a certain types of baked goods, such as artisanal brownies, and basque burnt cheesecake. Here’s a story of a home baker that had decided to take another route, and now has an outlet in the ever-popular cafe in George Town, Soul Cafe.
Here’s How The Story Of Shorty Bakery Started
In early 2020, some Penangites were not able to go to work as the government only allows essential workers to head back to the office. One of the many people that were affected by this arrangement was Evelyn. Bored at home, her husband had decided to purchase an oven for her to learn how to bake. Slowly but surely, her love for baking grew, especially the process of making tarts.
While it started as a hobby, it slowly became a business with many family and friends wanting to try out her homemade tarts. Through word of mouth, strangers started making orders and before she knows it, it becomes a fruitful business. As the business blossoms, the online business transitions into a brick-and-mortar business. It is now located on the second floor of Soul Cafe.
Shorty Bakery Offers Mini Tarts With Exciting Flavours
Made with love, it took some time to create the perfect crust for the tarts. Over a period of time, Evelyn has experimented with different ratios of ingredients until she had found one that was a little crispy but melts in the mouth at the same time. It now offers a wide range of flavours such as Original, Mochi, Durian, Tiramisu, and even Taro.
Available in a box of nine pieces, you can opt for three different flavours per box. It has a starting price of RM15, and it ranges to RM20 depending on the flavours. Apart from the mini tarts, Shorty Bakery has also expanded its business to offering traditional Chinese desserts. Try out Red Sugar Beauty, Ginger Beauty, White Beauty, and Tau Hua. These traditional Chinese desserts are jam-packed with healthy ingredients.
