The pastry chefs at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore present a stunning collection of handcrafted fondant fairy princesses and princes this Christmas to raise funds for charity. A limited edition of only 120 fairy princesses and princes will be available for purchase from S$180 each and the proceeds will go towards buying books as Christmas gifts for the children at AG Home, a non-profit, full-fledged residential home for teenage girls; the remaining 70% will be donated to Canossaville Children’s Home.
To create the fairy princesses and princes, the pastry team used a total of 150 kilograms of icing sugar paste. Working together, they spent 800 hours altogether to handcraft the exquisite details.
Purchases can be made via The Line Shop on Level 1 of the hotel from 19 November 2015 and at the Festive Shoppe in the lobby from 27 November 2015, and donors will have their names displayed next to their choice of a fairy princess or prince on the tree.
The Canossian Sisters, in response to the rapidly changing social landscapes, have embarked on an inclusive preschool and student care centre. The project aims to cater to mainstream and mild to high functioning special needs children, giving priority to the most needy.
A Child Development Unit (CDU) is also being set up to meet the special needs of the children and is scheduled to operate in 2008. Located within the Canossian Eduplex in the MacPherson/Circuit Road area, Canossaville reaches out and lends support to preschool children and students in the neighbourhood.
Canossaville Children & Community Services is an approved Institute of Public Character (IPC) and is authorised to receive tax-deductible donations.
