“Brad, my friends are throwing a Poolside Cake Party. Wanna come?”
Sometimes, we need to do crazy things to stay sane. Like eating 20 whole cakes at one go… The Cake Party is kind of like a mini competition. Everyone brought their best cakes, or rather, what they think is the best cake in Singapore. We got a good mix of cakes from Hotel Delis, to Patisseries, Bakeries and Cake Shops in Singapore.
It was really fun when everyone arrived with their cakes, we were like kids being locked up in Disneyland. Just imagine the excitement as we lined up the cakes on the table. It was cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, and more cakes for the whole night.
The question on everyone’s mind: which is the Best Cake in Singapore?
I figured that it would too cruel to show you every single photo of the cakes that we had, so I will keep this short.
We had about 20 tasters in the group, but most of them gave up after having a few slices.
We agreed that Flor Patisserie’s Strawberry Cake was the best cake amongst the ones that we had that night. It might just be one of the most simple-yet-sophisticated cake.
You might argue that our sample size of two is not big enough to make inference about the best cake in Singapore. But since we ate our way through 20 cakes at one go, I dare say that’s significant enough.
It was a close fight for the prestigious ‘Best Chocolate Cake in Singapore‘ title. We had worthy contenders from Lana Cake Shop, Choc-a-bloc, Jewels Artisan Chocolate, Vicky’s Cake Shop, and Truffs The Chocolate Artisan.
We also declared Lana Chocolate Cake as the Best Chocolate Cake in Singapore. Somehow, their combination of the sponge and chocolate fudge tasted just right. Unfortunately, we missed out comparing the chocolate cake from Awfully Chocolate’s and Jane Cake Station with the rest. I’d probably do another separate taste test of the three chocolate cakes. But that’s a story for another time.
The cakes in this post do not represent all the Best Cakes in Singapore. There are definitely other cakes that I’d include: in this list Bakerzin’s Chocolate Amer, Cedele’s Carrot Cake, Hilton’s Cheesecake, Canele Patisserie’s Matcha Cake, Da Paolo’s Tiramisu, Goodwood Park Hotel Deli’s Durian Cake, Jane Cake Station’s Chocolate Fudge Cake, Laurent Bernard’s Pleasure, Max Brenner’s Warm Chocolate Cake, Obolo Patisserie’s Noisette, Tampopo Deli’s Chiffon Cake, The Cheesecake Cafe’s Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cheesecake, 1 Caramel Patisserie’s Chocolate Praline Cake, 3 Inch Sin’s Warm Chocolate Cake and so many more!

Have you tried the banana chocolate cake from Awfully Chocolate yet? You’re supposed to!
A suggestion would be to have captions below your photos so readers can associate the photos with the dish/cake! Not only referring to this post but the rest as well! Many a times I wonder what dish it is and its such a pity. Just a friendly suggestion!
