I think most of us can agree that baking is an art. But Canvas Cookies, a home baker, goes the extra mile to incorporate visual art in her baking. Founded by artist Poh Ya See, Canvas Cookies is an edible space to explore the palate and palette.

The cookies that come out of Canvas Cookies are vibrant and quirky, using colours, shapes and textures to convey different expressions of joy.

Their first artist series, The Good Vibe Collection (S$19.80 per box), shows off their quirky and joyous style. In this box, you’ll find six pieces from The Joy Trio, which are Sandies sandwich cookies with homemade salted caramel. On top of that, there will be three sets of OK cookies, nine pieces of Richio cookies, and three pieces of Lady Rosé cookies.

Personally, I find the OK cookies most endearing, with that much needed piece of affirmation. The fact that they are made of Sandies cookies with chocolate chips also appeals to the chocolate chip lover in me.

The Richio cookie is a Valrhona rich chocolate butter cookie, a member of Canvas Cookies’ Super Rios series. These Super Rios are also available in the BUTTERed box set (S$14.90), if you’d prefer just those three flavours.

As for the Lady Rosé cookie, this comes from Canvas Cookies’ range of citrusy cookie tarts, which are also available in the TARTed box set (S$15.80). The Lady Rosé cookie is a homemade rose and lychee jam short crust butter tartlet.

Inspired by fond memories of old school butter tarts that the founder used to eat, this range of fruity cookie tarts have a warm connection behind them.

With Christmas around the corner, Canvas Cookies has rallied with their XMAS Holly Jolly Box (S$19.90), including new festive flavours and colours. Look out for the newest Starlie, a red velvet sandies sandwich cookie, and Snowy, a butter sandies sandwich cookie with white chocolate.

Canvas Cookies is high in demand, so do check out their order schedule on Instagram and make your order accordingly via WhatsApp. You can choose self-collection at Canberra or opt for islandwide delivery at a flat rate of S$8. Look sharp, and get yours just in time for Christmas!
