Interview with Leon Tsai, Founder of Home Baking Day

Our editorial team interviewed Leon Tsai, Founder of Home Baking Day, where he shared more about his founding journey of the baking studio, the curation process behind the cake recipes available for Singaporean cake enthusiasts as well as a glimpse into Home Baking Day’s exciting future plans, new offerings and seasonal menus. Read on to discover more about the passion and dedication driving Home Baking Day’s baking revolution.

1. What inspired you to start Home Baking Day?

Leon Tsai: My wife and I have always enjoyed baking and making our own treats, as it brought joy and a sense of satisfaction to us. We enrolled in baking classes and invested in baking equipment and tools. But we realised that if we don’t bake often enough, then the ingredients expire quickly and will eventually go to waste. Also, factors like complex recipes, the need to purchase expensive equipment, and the mess caused by baking, are some of the reasons why people don’t want to bake.

So in 2016, I founded Home Baking Day in Taiwan, with the vision of making the baking process effortless for everyone. Through Home Baking Day, I hope that individuals of all skill levels and ages will be able to fully immerse themselves and truly enjoy the baking experience.

 2. What sets Home Baking Day apart from other baking studios in the market?

Leon Tsai: One key factor that sets Home Baking Day apart from other baking studios is the flexibility that we provide. Conventional baking studios in Singapore have fixed baking classes and standard timings which may not suit everyone’s schedules. At Home Baking Day, we allow customers to walk in at their convenience, as and when they are available. This flexibility caters to various schedules and ensures that the joy of baking can be experienced without any time constraints, making the process a lot more accessible and enjoyable.

Home Baking Day also uses a tablet to guide customers throughout the entire baking process. The recipes on the tablet are detailed and easy to understand, even for people with little baking experience. Compared to other baking studios where you have to keep up with the teacher, you will be able to complete the entire baking task at your own pace at Home Baking Day, ensuring a fuss-free experience. And if you need any help during the process, our staff are always around.

We also take care of the washing and cleaning up of the baking tools, so every time you visit Home Baking Day, you get to experience the joy of baking without having to worry about the mess.

3. How do you come up with the recipes? What’s the curation process like?

Leon Tsai: We have a standard menu of over 40 recipes which is refreshed twice every year. All our recipes are meticulously curated and designed to cater to the Singaporean taste buds. We conduct thorough market research to understand local tastes, and incorporate popular flavours while introducing unique twists to ensure that each recipe provides a fun experience for our customers. During the curation process, we will test our recipes carefully, so that they are suitable for bakers of all skill levels.

4. Apart from the standard menu, Home Baking Day also offers seasonal menus. How does this appeal to your customers?

Leon Tsai: Our seasonal menu offers customers a chance to experience something new and exciting whenever they visit. The menus are based mainly on two factors; firstly by the seasons of fruits, and secondly, if there are any special occasions.

By having seasonal ingredient menus like the recent one for strawberries, customers get to use the best ingredients at their tastiest.

For others looking to celebrate an occasion, like Mother’s Day, our seasonal menu provides them with specially curated designs that will show their appreciation. They can either bake a cake as a gift or bake it together with their mom. Available from 16th April to 31st May 2024, customers can come to bake their cakes at their convenience.

5. What are your future plans for Home Baking Day? Are there any upcoming menu items in the pipeline for customers to look forward to?

Leon Tsai: We hope to reach out to larger groups of people in Singapore so that more will be able to experience this fuss-free and fun baking experience.

In the coming months, customers can also look forward to a wide range of new recipes in our upcoming seasonal menus like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Mango season. 

In the future, we are also thinking of hosting an event just for our junior bakers, or one for bakers with similar baking interests to gather and share their passion.
