The most beautiful brands often start from a passion and a personal need that coalesce to form ingenious ideas and businesses. Fankery, an online bakery, started just this way. The business was borne during the 2020 lockdowns when Cathy started experimenting with making cheesecakes and cookies filled with sweet, gooey mochi (a rice cake made of mochigome, a short-grain rice). When Cathy was hit by hypothyroidism in 2021, her focus shifted back to baking and spending more time in the kitchen, experimenting. This led to the development of unique food and flavours, and the signature Asian-fusion bakes she creates at Fankery today.
Inspired by her delicious and innovative flavours, we chat with Cathy about what inspires her and how that has influenced her bakes.
