Hot Cross Buns for Good Friday
On 15 April 2022, Allspice Institute teamed up with alumnus Ms. Agnes and conducted a fundraising project with the Bold Bakers and CBMC Singapore. The team made Hot Cross Buns, which carried significant meanings during this Easter week celebration. In 1592, Queen Elizabeth I decreed that the buns could no longer be sold on any day except for Good Friday, Christmas or burials. The myth is that they were too special to be eaten any other day.
Chef Anup, Ms Agnes and two more alumni volunteers did the impossible: 800 Hot Cross Buns within 8 hours!
Ms Agnes shared her thoughts about working with Allspice Institute after studying there. She believed that the Institute was the best in baking and would successfully reach the goal of this drive.
