Singapore ― Homegrown actress Fann Wong’s new online pastry shop Fanntasy has started off well. As of Oct 13, all 1,000 of the tarts available in its pilot launch were snapped up within 30 minutes, according to the actress in an Instagram post.

“Thank you for your love,” the 50-year-old shared in an Instagram Story, adding that Fanntasy is “officially sold out” and will share more information about its relaunch on its Facebook and Instagram pages.

Fanntasy offers only two types of whole tarts — musang king gula melaka ($68) – filled with durian pulp and house-made gula melaka, and Valrhona chocolate ($58) – creamy chocolate filling and almond sponge, reported Asia One.
