Question: Just what is it about a mouthless cat that appeals to so many people, young and old?
Yep, I’m talking about Hello Kitty. I love cats, and I’d much rather cuddle up with one that has a mouth, thank you very much (don’t you think the sound cats make is one of the cutest in the animal kingdom?).
As much as its popularity baffles me, there’s no denying that many Singaporeans are smitten by all things Hello Kitty. If you’re one of them, you’ll enjoy this latest collaboration: BreadTalk has partnered with Sanrio to become the exclusive bakery in Singapore to sell Hello Kitty treats.
Since August 1, BreadTalk has rolled out a series of Hello Kitty creations, including whole cakes, donuts and buns, all of which bearing the trademark Hello Kitty design. There are even Hello Kitty boxes and packaging, specially designed for this collaboration!
You can choose from four Hello Kitty whole cakes ($42 each) – Happy Chic, Kitty In Love, Little Miss Sunshine, and Kitty Next Door. Each vanilla chiffon cake is generously coated with fresh cream and topped with fruit slices and chocolate leaves. Happy Chic is available in-store; advance orders are required for the remaining three cake designs.
Besides whole cakes, look out for Kitty In Pink ($4.20/slice), a tiramisu cake; Kitty In Black and Kitty In White ($1.50 each), Hello Kitty-shaped donuts glazed in dark or white chocolate sauce; and Pocket Full Of Berries ($2.50), made up of fresh cream and strawberries sandwiched between to bread buns.
Can’t get enough of cats? Make your way down to The Arts House today, between 11am and 6pm, for the feline-themed flea market Purrzaar! Held in conjunction with the month-long Cats Of The World Photo Exhibition, 16 vendors will be selling quirky and adorable cat-related merchandise, with proceeds going to Cat Welfare Society.
