Recently, I visited Little House of Dreams located at the idyllic Dempsey Hill (right next to Ben & Jerry’s) and spent an entire afternoon there savouring their latest creations, bakes and savoury food.
Little House of Dreams is a homegrown bakery and one-stop party decorations specialist that offers bespoke cakes, cookies, cake-in-a-jar, freshly baked goods, party supplies, party decorations and even party props rentals.
Bespoke Dessert Tables
They have experienced party stylists to create bespoke dessert tables to suit any theme and occasions such as weddings, baby showers, parties, corporate functions and photo shoots.
Little House of Dreams also conduct baking workshops at their baking studios or at a location convenient for the customers. Their sister shop, Dreams and Confetti, offers a specially curated selection of party supplies, imported tableware, pretty cake stands from USA, candies, trinkets, gifts and much more.
Founders of Little House of Dreams
Audrey Lee and Grace Goh, being mothers to two young children, are not new to organising parties and birthday celebrations for their own families, and this fuels their creativity and passion for Little House of Dreams. They constantly draw inspiration from their children on new creations, flavours or new brands to work with and derived immense pleasure from making every event/party a success!
Corporate Gift Ideas
These luxurious candies and chocolate treats from Sugarfina are the perfect corporate gift ideas for any functions.
This limited edition Dreams Establishment Teddy Bear was designed for a charity drive for Club Rainbow last month.
Little House of Dreams has recently launched a new savoury food menu in December 2015 which features burgers, pastas, pizzas, salads, sides and sweet treats. One noteworthy point is that the dough for the burgers, pizzas and pasta are all hand made in-house at the Little House of Dreams.
We heard that the creative team has also curated a special menu for Valentine’s Day which features a pink velvet cake instead of the usual red velvet cake and we cannot wait to try it!
Spaghetti Bolognese ($14.90) & The Foundation Burger ($12.90)
We like it that the Spaghetti Bolognese was cooked al dente but the Foundation Burger could use a little more sauce as it was a little dry and lacked flavour. The burger would have tasted better if the cheese had been more “melted”.
Pearl Couscous | $12.90
This is a rather unique dish made of tiny granules of toasted semolina flour and is served with cherry tomatoes, mint, basil, cucumber and olives in a tangy lemon tomato emulsion. This is truly the perfect dish for vegans.
We like the pleasantly chewy and light texture of the pearl couscous that pairs exceptionally well with the sauces and how it absorbs the flavours of the other ingredients beautifully.
Spicy Buffalo Wings ($8.90) & BBQ Chicken Pizza ($17.90)
This is a comfort dish for any cold weather but the buffalo wings here could be a little more spicy like its name to give an extra oomph to the dish. The pizza could be better if the crust was thinner and crispier, but this is just my personal preference.
The hot foods here are all prepared by their talented pastry chefs. As the Little House of Dreams’ forte is in baking and bespoke dessert creations, we find that their savoury food items would require a little more fine tuning.
Being a fairly new establishment, the Little House of Dreams has great potential for growth, with their great desserts, cosy ambience and friendly service with a personal touch, and I will be happy to return to try their new offerings.
