Cakes were invented, I believe, for the sole purpose of making us happy. With so many dessert places in Singapore, we are simply spoiled for choice.
Among all the bakeries, cake shops and patisseries in Singapore, where can you find the best cakes? Which sweet treats are worth a try?
There really is no “best cake” since each one has a different story and appeals to different people accordingly. We all have our own favourite desserts, but whatever yours is, I hope you’re eating it.
Here’s my list of the top 10 cakes in Singapore.
I crave desserts like people stranded on the desert crave water.
I had the namesake cake (milk chocolate mousse is infused with earl grey tea) when I went to the new patisserie by Chef Pang Kok Keong, and I fell in love with it.
The Antoinette (picture above) from Antoinette Patisserie is good. Okay, maybe ‘good’ is not the right word since it doesn’t convey the depth of my feelings. How about wonderful? Amazing? This is, without a doubt, one of the top 10 cakes in Singapore.

Flor Patisserie’s Mille-feuille (also known as Napoleon cake) has a layer of cake in between the layers of puff pastry and cream. I love how the puff pastry crumbled in the mouth together with the cake and cream.

One of my favourite cakes from Laurent Bernard Cafe is the Pleasure ($9.80). The classic Plaisir Sucré comprises whipped chocolate cream and ganache in between the beautiful and delicate chocolate sheets, and a base of hazelnut and praline; it is out-of-this-world good.
