Birthday cakes in Singapore! Customised, homemade, shop-bought and more

By: Susannah Jaffer

While we’ve all got ‘that’ pal who’s an absolute whizz when it comes to baking (‘grrr’ if that’s you!), most of us are not cut out to be domestic goddesses in the kitchen. We might be able to lob together a crumble, but a perfect cake suitable for dozens of pairs of eyes? Forget that – when the occasion arises, we’d rather dodge hours of sweating it out in a mist of flour and call in the experts.

But who do you contact when you want a personalised fondant cake with your daughter’s favourite cartoon slapped across it – or mini delicious cupcakes to spell out a special birthday message? Well, that’s what we’re here for*! Read on for EL’s top birthday cake recommendations, with sweet treats to suit every budget.

*We realise this sounds like an offer to bake it ourselves. It’s not.

Pretty Cool Cakes
EL‘s Michelle found this talented lady through a Facebook recommendation, and was super chuffed with the above result for daughter Dheva’s 5th birthday. While set birthday cakes are priced between $100 – $175, Pretty Cool Cakes are best at whipping up bespoke 3D creations (price based on size, layers and design – normally around $175 – $400). Simply send them an email with what you’re after and an expected pick-up date and someone will be in touch to work out the details and finalise the jazzy design.
Email y.scholtens@live.nl or call (+65) 9236 6033. Pick up from 265 Greenwood Avenue.

Plain Vanilla
By now, everyone knows nothing beats a homemade Plain Vanilla cupcake. Their special birthday 12-cupcake box ($40) can be customised to spell out a ‘Happy Bday’ or ‘Bday Wishes’ message, and contains four strawberry white chocolate cupcakes, five red velvet cupcakes and three dark chocolate ganache cupakes. Yum.
