When the founder of Lana Cake Shop, Violet Kwan, announced back in 2016 that she was ready to call it quits, and was offering to handover her pride and joy (her shop) to potential buyers, many Singaporeans were called to attention. Many of whom had grown up eating her iconic Chocolate Fudge Cake, either for birthdays or just because.
In an interview with Straits Times, Mr Jason Kwan (the founder’s son) shared his decision to continue his mother’s legacy. Having left his previous job as a banker, he has been working on revitalising Lana Cake Shop over the past 18 months, breathing new life and improving it slowly from branding to work processes.
Of course, not forgetting perfecting his mother’s timeless Chocolate Fudge Cake recipe.

Pictures of these creamy white ice creams encased in packaging that distinctively resembles the signature White Rabbit wrapping have been circulating on social media platforms and everyone has been trying to get their hands on it.
One man on Weibo even went as far as to say that “for this reason alone, [he] decided that [he was] going to LA again”. But now, all of that hype might be all for nothing because the original manufacturers of said White Rabbit Sweet, Guan Sheng Yuan, is not happy with it and may potentially sue the ice cream parlour.
