It is not a secret that I lurveeee desserts, but not many people know what is my favourite dessert. The truth is, I don’t have one. You see, I’m afraid of commitment. Today, I want a Chocolate Souffle, but come tomorrow, I’ll be craving for Tiramisu. It will be something different the day after. My cravings change all the time.
I’m not going to tell you which is my favourite dessert, but I can say that Strawberry Shortcake is never far away from my thoughts. I’ve gone on a quest to try many dessert places and here’s a list of the Best Strawberry Shortcakes in Singapore.
This post is about (edible) Strawberry Shortcake made of sponge cake, cream and strawberry. For Strawberry Shortcake cartoon character, please google and try again.
To me, Antoinette is the best patisserie in Singapore. However, I do not think that they have the best Strawberry Shortcake. It is good, but not so exceptional till I’d think about it everyday. Still, it is worth a try if you are there for afternoon high tea.

After going on a hunt for the best Strawberry Shortcakes in Singapore, I can gladly say that Bakerzin’s rendition is definitely one of the better ones that I’ve had. I’d come here when I’m craving for Strawberry Shortcakes. And of course, it helps that they have many outlets around the island.

Barracks Cafe’s strawberry shortcake ($9.5) is the one that most people mention when you ask them where to get a good strawberry shortcake. Unlike the usual Japanese Strawberry Shortcake that has sponge cake sandwiched with whipped cream and strawberries, Barracks Cafe’s version comes with vanilla bean sauce, and it has a much firmer texture.
It is listed as my Top 10 Cakes in Singapore.

“Where can I get cheap and good cakes?” I get this question a lot, and I always tell people to try the cakes from Flor Patisserie. The little cake shop at Duxton Hill has a Strawberry Shortcake ($5.5) which is really moist and fluffy.
Definitely one of the better Strawberry Shortcakes!

Forget about love, give me Strawberry Shortcake.
When you put incredibly soft sponge cake with delicious fresh cream, it’s really not difficult to see why Glace’s Strawberry Shortcake ($5) – in the first picture – is so popular. The first time I had it, I knew I’d found something special.

Mezza9, the hotel cake shop in Grand Hyatt, is the place that I always frequent whenever I’m in town. And of course, I always buy their Strawberry Shortcake ($4.5) for my breakfast next day.
Here’s the amazing part, Mezza9 offers 50% discount off all cakes after 9pm – you can get a slice of Strawberry Shortcake for under $3! For that kind of price, Mezza9′s rendition is unbeatable!

I think I am in love with Strawberry Shortcake.
Rive Gauche Patisserie
Rive Gauche by the Pokka Food Group probably needs no introduction. It is a takeaway kiosk that serves cakes at affordable prices. At $2.8 a slice, it is the cheapest Strawberry Shortcake; making it a great option if you are on a budget.

Sun Moulin Bakery
One of my favourite places for good Japanese bread. My friend is a big fan of Sun Moulin, and after she brought me there to the bread, I’ve been going there ever since.
However, it took me until recently to find out that Sun Moulin also makes a competent Strawberry Shortcake ($5.6). It is light, and airy, and smooth. Utterly delicious.

I really liked 1 Caramel’s Strawberry Shortcake ($6). I liked the flaky pastry around the cake. I liked how it is different from the usual Japanese Strawberry Shortcakes. I liked the combination of fluffy sponge cake and strawberry bits.
This is definitely one of the best Strawberry Shortcakes in Singapore.
