The rainbow cake is a brilliant creation with multi-coloured layers, and if there was a beauty pageant for cakes, the rainbow cake would win hands-down.
Whether you like it or not, this is one cake that will steal the show at a party or draw the crowd to a cafe. We have a simple and easy rainbow cake recipe for those who want to try baking it at home. But for the rest of us who are more talented at eating than baking, here is a list of cafes that serve rainbow cake in Singapore.
#1 DEAN & DELUCA
One of the top sellers at Dean & Deluca is its Rainbow Cake (S$9). The pastry chef uses six different fruit extracts – strawberry, orange, lemon, green apple, blueberry and grape – to give the cake its brilliant rainbow colours.

W39 Bistro & Bakery has only been around for a short while, but despite its rather inaccessible location, it has won themselves a loyal following among people staying in the west of Singapore. With pretty cakes, decent coffee, free wifi, and a variety of good magazines, it is not difficult to understand why its popularity. Among its selection of cakes, the show-stopper is definitely the rainbow cake.

Also read our recipe on how to make a rainbow cake.
Are you saying the rainbow cake takes the cake? I’m sorry, I just had to, haha! Thanks for the good works!
IAMCafe sells Rainbow cakes & Crepes too
You might wanna add in the au naturale rainbow cake from The Garden Slug at Telok Kurau. They only use natural dyes such as green tea & beetroot to achieve the colors. I’ve not tried it myself, but my sister has tried it thrice!
Dean n Deluca (Orchard Central) also sells Rainbow Cake topped with white icing. It’s moist and has a slight berry flavor that makes it equally pleasing to the palate as to the eyes. They introduced it a few months ago and it’s now my new favourite after their Red Velvet Cake.
Hi, I’m a great fan of desserts and rainbow cakes. After trying majority of the rainbow cakes in Singapore, I’m recommending La Petite Artisan Rainbow Cakes! It beat them all hands down with even a better option to be able to customised rainbow cakes without even using fondant!… Even my friend who don’t like eating cakes loved my son’s birthday cake to bits! Their vanilla bean mousse rainbow is the best vanilla cake I have ever tasted… And all my mummies friends are their fans now!
Worth trying out but you need to book early as they are always fully booked. Here’s their facebook page.
La petite! YES!
I got my 21st birthday Cake from them too. All wiped out even I orders extra. Their pudding glaze customize Cake is just SOOOO awesome as I’m not a fondant fan! Must try!
I just want to drop a note to sherlle and zunnie to thank you for the recommendation. I was soucing for cakes and decided to try the recommendation. And truly enough i was really impress with La Petite Cakes. My birthday cake was AWESOME! everything i asked for. the taste and looks. I tried so many customised cake and definately the best. I love the pudding glaze too.
Not even a single regret. Even the service i got was so personlised and warm.i have to admit i’m a diffcult customer.
Only thing was the reposnse time was a little slow due to their heavy schedule (Must book early)but definately worth the wait.
Thumbs Up!or even ALL FINGERS & TOES UP!
DONT GO TO THE COFFEE DAILY! Their Service Sucks!!
‘Lowercase’ at The Lasalle College of the Arts sells rainbow cakes too..
Yes to Lowercase’s rainbow cakes! They’re light, they’re not dry and also they’re not too sweet either really good!
Maison Ikkoku has the nicest most velvety Rainbow Cake! And it has all 7 colours too.
Thanks for the recommendations =) Was at The Coffee Daily and tried their iced peppermint mocha and rainbow cake.
Nice drink and rainbow cake was pretty, not too sweet and heavy. Great place to chill. They serve free flow gem biscuits to munch too.
You should to try the rainbow cake at Dean & DeLuca. It has nice combinations of fruits fragrance… Love that flavour that infuse your palate. Yummmmmmm
Another place to try out for rainbow cakes is at NOM – Bistro & Bakery, located at Macpherson Community Centre, Level 1. They serve pretty unique flavours like Salted Caramel Rainbow Cake, Oreo Rainbow Cake and Chocolate Rainbow Cake. Pocket-friendly too, with no GST & Service Charge. Definitely tastes as good as it looks!
Has anyone mention the rainbow cake at Au Chocolat at MBS? Level of sweetness is just nice but price is at the steep side – $13 a slice
A colleague recommended I AM Cafe at Haji Lane…
NOM has rainbow cakes too, and in three different flavours. Salted Caramel, Chocolate, and Oreo. It’s not too sweet and the icing is delicious. You get to see the pastry chef at work through the glass-windowed baking station too =)
NOM’s rainbow cake are awesome n wholesome! Not too sweet for peeps who don’t need a surge of sugary rush but gives a sense of comfort when the buttery sponge melt in your month with a burst of the chocolate ganache or the salted caramel. Heaven!
For le chocolat.. Hard to get their cakes.. Need to preorder.. Jiayou..
I tried NOM yesterday. I find their rainbow cake ordinary. A bit dry, and like other normal cakes. Salted caramel was sold out seconds before I wanted to place my order. Oreo rainbow cake didn’t have any lasting impression on me. But I definitely don’t fancy the chocolate rainbow. But other than that NOM serves other tasty treats like beer battered fish and chips and over-priced pizzas. But this cafe is worth a try and complete your meal with their rainbow cakes.:)
Sunday night, I brought my kids to I Am cafe again. We had been there 2 times prior last night. This time we ordered their rainbow cake(3rd time I’m ordering within this month!), red velvet and salted caramel. I am’s rainbow cake is a huge portion and a pretty sight for $8.90. But their red velvet and salted caramel taste much better than their rainbow cake.
Agreed. dun go coffee daily…. the serving of the rainbow cake serving in diff size. & riddic price of $10..packed in a box.
Well me & my husband went once.. my husband says nothing special & cost $10 for a small piece is totally NOT Worth. He doesn’t even wanna go again…
I over craze on the Rainbow cake..
If u looking for it..
Must try (The Bakery Chef) located at 161 Bukit Merah Central #01-3711.
THE BEST RAINBOW CAKE I HAD SO FAR & their price are reasonable too, despite their effort was beautifully done & taste was fantastic deliriously!
Sun Ray Cafe next door to Coffee Daily also does rainbow cake. It’s been very dry lately (served with buttercream), but the cafe is dog-friendly.
I would give my vote to w39 bistro rainbow cake,as their cake’s cream frosting is made of lemon which I found it not too “jelak” after eating.I don’t like lynn’s cakes which I found too “jelak” after eating a few mouth.sorry if I have offended anybody,:-(
Attended a friend’s birthday party at hougang recently and they had ordered a natural rainbow cake from (i think) a website called dough empire. it was truly delectable. Had a light fruity taste and frosting of yogurt cream cheese (no buttercream) which we all lapped up.
The best i’ve had so far and i’m not even a cake fan. Two thumbs up.
Iam cafe at Haji lane sells really awesome rainbow cake (7 layers) and crepe too! Worth to add it into this list!
Like VI I like The Bakery Chef’s rainbow cake! It’s not too sweet & neither is it dry. the best part is the price is not too ridiculous & it’s near to my home! I haven’t tried many rainbow cake around our little island but I do have a vague idea of what I would consider the ideal rainbow cake.
Today I tasted the best rainbow cake ever at Forum Mall at Benjamin Brown. Each layer has its own flavor and frosting including strawberry, orange, mango, pistachio. The frostings has real fruits in then like mango, orange and strawberry. It blew our mind away. Absolutely must try.
I’m recommending La Petite Artisan at Toa Payoh. Best rainbow cake in town
My daughter’s cake was so delicious and beautifully done up that even the teachers asked me for their number. All the kids requested for more haha.. oh the customised cakes are all non icing so its really good for kids too……YUMMY
Le Chocolat Cafe had closed down unfortunately. This was the best rainbow cake I ever had! Such a pity they decided to cease their operation.
I am… cafe’s rainbow cafe is terrible. I can’t imagine it can be rated as 3rd???? It is must be joking…
Thanks for this list. I am actually looking to get a plain rainbow chiffon cake (without all those creamy layers) but while there are lots of recipes online, can’t seem to find any baker that does it. Do you know if any? Pls recommend!
