This week, we are going to tick­le your sens­es by bring­ing you into the Win­dow of Sweet­lands Con­fec­tionery & Bak­ery. Locat­ed at the cor­ner of Kim Keat Lane, it is eas­i­ly picked out by the strong smelling aro­ma of its fresh­ly baked bread. Come by at noon and you will see 4 bak­ers prepar­ing to delve into the ardu­ous bak­ing process in the shop. Yes, the bak­ery still bakes its own bread from scratch.

The process begins with the prepa­ra­tion of dough, fol­lowed up by knead­ing and… I can go on but you can actu­al­ly wit­ness the entire bak­ing process if you have patience and pos­sess the kind of curios­i­ty that kills cats because the process lasts over 5 hours! Not to men­tion, the heat which you have to endure as the shop gets real­ly warm and stuffy when the huge steel ovens are up and run­ning.

And so I shall be brief in order not to bore you too much; the next step involves putting the knead­ed dough into the bread moulds where it is left to rest. The dough would then rise because of the yeast and it is now ready to be placed into the oven to be baked!

While wait­ing for the bread to be baked, we took the oppor­tu­ni­ty to min­gle with the res­i­dent bak­ers and they have left us with some mean­ing­ful quotes that deserve to be shared with every­one else.

Sweet­lands Con­fec­tionery & Bak­ery sells a wide vari­ety of bread, rang­ing from paste filled buns to the most pop­u­lar rain­bow bread loaves which are avail­able only in the evening. A warm feel­ing fills my heart when I see these breads are being pack­aged and becom­ing ready to be sold to the cus­tomers. It feels as though I have become a bak­er for a day through the lens of my cam­era. The sun has already set by time by we have decid­ed to call it a day and this is def­i­nite­ly a worth­while expe­ri­ence which will always fall under the best parts of my life!
