tBakes is an enrichment interest group that holds weekly sessions at the Master’s Common Lounge. We explore different recipes, ranging in difficulty that cater to different taste buds. We aim to provide a platform for Tembusians to bond over the process of baking and forge stronger ties between each other.

We hold beginner-friendly baking sessions for those interested in trying out baking but need the opportunity to experiment and hope that our weekly sessions will further their interest in taking up baking as a hobby. We hope that our sessions also help Tembusians find a way to relax amidst studying hard for their courses.

Our sessions are typically held on Tuesday from 7pm to 9pm and the recipes changes every week. Tembusians will be grouped into pairs or trios and bake within their groups.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
