Over the years, Janice has redefined the boundaries of dessert-making and art, turning every creation into an immersive experience for the senses. Her journey began with her flagship brand, 2am: dessertbar, establishing a culinary philosophy that fuses flavours, textures, and interactive art. This ethos was further embodied in her confectionery retail venture, Janice Wong Singapore.

The year 2021 marked a significant milestone for Janice Wong and her brands as they secured funding from Vertex Ventures SEA and India, propelling their international expansion.
