Top 10 Cakes in Singapore

Antoinette Cake

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.


Antoinette from Antoinette Patisserie


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.

Napoleon Cake Mille feuille


Napoleon Cake from Flor Patisserie


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.

Plaisir Sucré from Laurent Bernard Chocolatier


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.

Barracks Cafe’s rendition is the one that most people mention when you ask them where to get a good strawberry shortcake.

Canele Patisserie Matcha Cake


Matcha from Canele Patisserie

Did u manage to have Saint Honore L’Amore at Antoinette?I heard the choux pastry is really good!! I truly would love to try their All-Day breakfast soon!!!! Dying to try their thick french toasts! Yum…

I will update if I get there :)

Love this post! I enjoyed a family vacation to Singapore 2 years ago and didn’t have enough time to explore all the great eats. Though I couldn’t leave without enjoying a Singapore Sling from The Raffles. I must try all these fantastic cakes you just suggested. Must go back soon!

Have tried The Antoinette at their lavendar outlet.. had a fun time poking the ‘pimple’ :P

simply love the whole setting of the cafe! such a great place for spending time with galfrens or perhaps a nice romantic dinner .. plus the cakes!

erm.. but of coz such places comes with a price tag :P

Great list! Now I know where I should go to accommodate my cake cravings^^ This is really helpful.

Thanks a lot!

wow..except for Max Benner and Barrack Cafe, i have tried the rest. My all time favourite would be da paolo.

Hi, thanks for recommending all the nice dessert in Singapore. Recently I went to Antoinette Fench Pastry, the Antoinette milk chocolate cake was good n it was not too sweet. The French toast with hot chocolate was great too but not the iced chocolate drink. I find that the ice chocolate drink was not as thick as Max Benner.

Too bad I didn’t stay long in Singapore last time I was there. If I’d have stayed for more than a week and I’ve seen this post, I’ll probably be raving about those places too. Next time I visit Singapore, I’ll try to visit these places! Thanks for the info!

I love the Chiffon Cake from Tempopo too! Unfortunately, they have change the recipe and I find it is not as soft as before. Nevertheless, I still eat it when I crave for it. And always have it on my birthday.

totally have to agree with the Tiramisu at Da Paolo Gastronomia!!! My all-time favourite :)

Weell, check out this place called the Long Black Cafe at 20 Biopolis Way, Centros Block. They have great set lunches and nice tiramisu too and the MUST TRY = COFFEE. However, bear in mind they are only open on weekdays and last order is at 7.30pm :)

Maybe you would like to try High Society @ Marina Bay Sands. My friend Juvena is the pastry chef there.

they all look so so good, what do you think of swirls bake shop? i like their red velvet cupcakes~~~ :)
