Cassia Canelés: Unraveling the Best of Canelés in Singapore with a Fusion Twist

For those who have experienced the pleasure of indulging in Cassia Canelés, the addiction is real. The allure lies in the winning combination of a dark, caramelized crust and a moist custard center, infused with the delightful flavors. These beautiful brown treats are truly an irresistible indulgence that leaves taste buds craving for more.

Unlike other French pastries commonly found, canelés are not as easily available in Singapore. However, Cheryll Cassia Walla, a Singapore-born Indonesian and former YouTube analyst, has set out to change that with her home bakery, Cassia Canelés. What sets her creations apart is a steadfast commitment to using only high-quality ingredients and an innate flair for innovation. The result? A delectable assortment of canelés, each boasting unique flavors inspired by a fusion of tastes from all corners of the world.
