7. Bloomsbury Bakers
We love the usual chocolate sea salt, Earl Grey, red velvet, rum and raisin and strawberry shortcake options but what sets Bloomsbury Bakers apart from its contemporaries is the local flavours. Forks out for pulut hitam, orh nee (yam), honey calamansi pineapple and ondeh ondeh cakes.

Cakes here are, indeed, fabulous. What stands out to us is the “Diva” range where cakes are named after – yup, you guessed it right – Hollywood divas. For fans of Queen B herself, the Beyonce packs a punch with a lemonade-inspired flavour, blending lemon and yogurt in a sponge cake. The style of cake decor is also minimalistic – perfect for small and intimate birthday celebrations. You can now enjoy its bakes along with a classic brunch menu at Aliwal Arts Centre in Kampong Glam.
The Fabulous Baker Boy, #01-01, 28 Aliwal Street, Singapore 199918; available for delivery
This cake shop wins our hearts for being the most decadent. It’s taken the classic chocolate cake and elevated it with rich dark chocolate ganache and moist (not always an iffy word!) chocolate sponge. The icing on top? These eggless cakes are also vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free. Avocados, brown rice milk and psyllium husk are used to create a fluffy, mousse-like texture. No wonder its moniker means calm in Icelandic. A bite of this might just make us forget our problems for a second. The Midnight chocolate flavour is also available in cupcakes and in a petite size.
Roa, #B1-126, 183 Jalan Pelikat, Singapore 537643 (by appointment only); available for delivery
