Batik Swiss rolls from home baker in S’pore look like real fabric

This is art.

Unicorn cakes, rainbow cakes, galaxy cakes — these are just a few of the cake trends that are everywhere.

Batik print cakes in bold colours, however, are probably not as common.

A Singapore-based online bakery called Batikrolls by Nura is responsible for these butter cream Swiss rolls.

The Muslim-owned bakery hand-makes them.

Each roll goes for S$26, with a minimum order of two rolls of the same design.

For fillings, it comes in Nutella buttercream, vanilla buttercream, blueberry buttercream, and their latest flavour, 80g of pure Nutella.

Each roll is nine inches long, or approximately 22cm.

For those who are curious, this is how the rolls are designed:

A design is first drawn on a baking tray, then painstakingly filled in with colour.

The shop currently carries six designs, with the best-selling one being the Batik Mawar:

If you’re interested, you can order some for yourself here.

However, do note that they might be sold out from time to time (they were fully booked for Hari Raya earlier this year), so order early if you want them for a special occasion.

You can either choose to do a self-collection (at Marsiling MRT, 8pm on Mondays and Thursdays) or pay S$20 for island-wide delivery, which is also available only on Monday or Thursday between 8 to 10pm.

They even deliver to Malaysia in a temperature-controlled truck — but to selected states only. For more info on this, click here.
