You’ll fall in love with the cakes from Cakebar. The cakes come in uber punchy flavours, with clean and simplistic aesthetics. You can get typical round whole cakes, but if you love a variety, get an assortment of bar cakes or single-serve cakes. Top tip: try the signature kori lemon cake made with fresh lemon juice and zest. The tangy flavour combined with creamy frosting and crunchy toppings will be a textural delight.
Cakebar, multiple locations including Palais Renaissance and Holland Piazza
4. Lady M
Tired of thick, heavy birthday cakes and crave something a little lighter? The signature Mille Crêpe Cake from Lady M Confection is exactly what you’re looking for. The cake is made by stacking twenty layers of paper-thin crêpes with mild, delicately flavoured cream sandwiched in between. Plus, the boutique offers chocolate, pistachio and green tea versions, as well as creations like strawberry shortcake and vegan chocolate tart.

5. The Durian Bakery
Searching for a cake to surprise a durian-loving friend or family member? Look to The Durian Bakery for the best picks. This local bakery promises the richest durian-infused bakes, made with its signature Grade A Mao Shan Wang durian puree for a rich, creamy flavour. You can’t go wrong with the classic Mao Shan Wang durian cake. Crafted with light and airy vanilla sponge, the cake features a Mao Shan Wang core, topped with fresh Hokkaido whipped cream and white chocolate for a decadent bite.
Alternatively, go for a less traditional option like the Mao Shan Wang durian mille crepe cake, layered with thick durian puree in between handmade crepe slices. Textured and creamy, this cake offers a delectable experience. Plus, The Durian Bakery’s cakes are freshly baked daily with no preservatives, so you know you’re getting only the best. Add birthday accessories like a ‘happy birthday’ topper and a personalised greeting card and you’re good to go. The team bakes limited cakes daily, so get your orders in fast. Need a cake in a hurry? Same-day cake delivery in two hours is available, too!

We can’t get over the perfectly decorated cakes at Creme Maison. The skillfully piped icing on top of smoothly frosted cakes makes for the perfect centrepiece at your birthday dessert table.

Don’t be surprised if your guests start asking where you got your cake from.

Are dietary restrictions or preferences a concern? Take a gander at Delcie’s for a selection of gluten-free cakes and bakes. Choose from a myriad of diabetic-, keto- and dairy-free cakes. They don’t compromise on flavour and are guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth. If you’ve got chocoholics in the house, we recommend ordering the decadent fudge brownie. (Psst: there are vegan and gluten-free options for this too!) Otherwise, try one of its fruitier numbers like the strawberry cheesecake.
Delcie’s Desserts and Cakes, available for delivery and at #01-83, 34 Whampoa West, Singapore 330034
We love the intricately crafted cakes at Nesuto. Expect artisanal quality bakes made with premium French butter and cream. Its signature selection features fab flavours such as decadent dark chocolate and yuzu raspberry. The cakes are also partially blast-frozen before delivery to maintain optimum integrity and quality. Plus, they can be kept in the fridge for up to three days (great for advance planning). Just don’t forget to take it out of the fridge to defrost half an hour before serving!
Nesuto, available for delivery and at multiple locations including Tanjong Pagar and Jewel Changi Airport
10. Baker’s Brew
Ah, so many choices! It’s a good problem to have when you’re planning to order a cake. Countless flavours aside, we love how Baker’s Brew takes various trends in its stride. Case in point: the strawberry speculoos cake, classic Basque cheesecake and yoghurt cakes. Oh, and there’s even a six-in-one cake bundle (featuring the bestsellers) to fix your sugar cravings.
Baker’s Brew, available for delivery and at multiple locations including Paragon and Great World City
11. Bloomsbury Bakers
We love the usual chocolate, Earl Grey, 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.
Bloomsbury Bakers, available for delivery and at #01-889, 30 Bendemeer Road, Singapore 330030
12. Lisse Cakes

Gourmet cake flavours include coconut raspberry, earl grey lavender and red velvet Nutella. Topped with sweet goodies and smooth frosting, it’s a work of art you get to eat.
Lisse Cakes, available for delivery
If you’re all about lush botanical and dreamy whimsical vibes, the creators from Fieldnotes (previously Zee & Elle) are right up your alley. These cakes are far from average. In fact, they look like they’ve been taken right out of a garden-themed birthday celebration. We’ve got our mind set on the Uji matcha strawberry cake and guava lychee cake. You can even add on cake toppers, novelty candles, and even birthday cards to go along with it!
Fieldnotes, available for delivery and at 524 Macpherson Road, Singapore 368215
14. Bob The Baker Boy

Add some pizazz to the cakes with fun designs from the fancy standard cake options. FYI: We’ve got eyes on the divine Belgian Chocolate Cake (pictured above).

This halal bakery offers a splash of local delights like cakes with pandan and gula melaka. Not your birthday? Treat yourself to a box of red velvet and salted caramel cupcakes. The must-try in our opinion? The crunchy sea salt chocolate chip cookies. Best to visit before lunch to avoid leaving empty-handed.

Cake Spade’s phenomenal selection of baked treats might leave your head spinning. So we’ll go ahead and recommend its most interesting creation: tofu cheesecake.

If fancy frosting isn’t your thing, you’ll be happy to know that you can choose from a range of interesting cake flavours like salted caramel and the decadent peanut butter and dark chocolate. What’s more, the cakes are for a cause; part of the profit goes towards feeding hungry children in Timor Leste. Score good karma points this b-day!
The Ugly Cake Shop, available for delivery and at #01-06, GB Point, 535 Kallang Bahru, Singapore 339351
21. Edith Patisserie
A chance encounter between two pastry aficionados at culinary school led to this small home-style bakery that whips up some of the best birthday cakes in Singapore. Think yuzu osmanthus, cookie dough speculoos chocolate, and gluten-free pandan coconut cakes. The bakers even do a boozy gin and tonic creation if you want to mix things up a bit.

All Things Delicious, available for delivery and at #01-01, 34 Arab Street, Singapore 199733
24. The Fabulous Baker Boy
Cakes here are, indeed, fabulous. What stands out to us is the cakes named after 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, available for delivery and at #01-01, Aliwal Arts Centre, 28 Aliwal Street, Singapore 199918
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, available for delivery and at #04-05, Innovate360 Building, 9 Chin Bee Drive, Singapore 619860

The flavours range from classics like chocolate and vanilla to premium matcha, mocha and Earl Grey picks. Oh, and don’t forget to add fillings. We say go for Nutella, fresh sliced strawberries or coffee cream.
Monice Bakes, available for delivery and at The Clearwater, 6 Bedok Reservoir View, Singapore 479234
27. Chalk Farm
If you’re floored by the utter elegance of the cakes at Chalk Farm, wait till you actually try them.

Today, Chalk Farm offers over 20 options including local flavours such as pandan chiffon and burnt durian cheesecake. And we can’t forget the wildly-popular chocolate Guinness cake, along with classics like rum butterscotch bundt, espresso meringue and salted caramel red velvet.
Chalk Farm, available for delivery multiple locations including Paragon and Parkway Parade
28. Gaily Bakes
Gaily Bakes perfectly combines the chewy texture of mochi with classic favourites like brownies and bundt cakes. Try the decadent mochi brownies or get your forks out for pillowy mochi bundtlettes. Look out for weekly specials which rotate regularly! Fancy trying a bit of everything? Go for a sampler like the Matcha Tasting Box, which gives you matcha flavoured versions of the signature bakes. We also love that 10% of the profits are donated to animal shelters in Singapore.
