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.
Formerly known as Canossaville Children's Home, the residential home was closed earlier this year to make way for an inclusive preschool and student care centre to cater to mainstream and special needs children, giving priority to the most needy. A Child Development Unit (CDU) comprising a team of speech therapists, education psychologists and social workers to meet the specialised needs of the children is also being set up, and is scheduled to be operational in 2018.
In preparation for our new role as Canossaville Children & Community Services, developments are ongoing. This includes the designing of a special curriculum to meet the unique needs of Canossaville, with a distinctive focus on Formation of the Heart, the key foundation of a Canossian education.
Canossaville Children & Community Services is an approved Institute of Public Character (IPC) and is authorised to receive tax-deductible donations.
