At Blos Bakery, our love story began with a secret love affair with all things sweet - fuelled by our founder’s obsession with the once-taboo combination of red and pink.
What started as a quiet side hustle to Corlandi's café, Meraki, soon blossomed into its own exquisite blushing venture - BLOS BAKERY.
The demand for Meraki's mouth-wateringly delicious cakes led us to take a leap of faith and move the baking team to a dedicated space in early 2019.
Our journey in building Blos Bakery has been organic and gentle. However, our passion for baking couldn't be denied.
We firmly believe there should always be a place for something sweet and delectable at your table. Whether it's a classic cake, a tray of delectable tartlets, or a vibrant celebration cake with secret layers of salted caramel and glitter cherries.
For us, baking and crafting beautiful confections and cakes is an unending source of joy.
Our offerings span from classic cakes to exquisite wedding cakes, bespoke corporate orders, delightful high tea treats, and memorable birthday celebrations for your little ones.
