With the new measures and the extension of the Circuit Breaker in place, most of us are bummed out, we’re sure. And it’s definitely worse if your birthday falls during this period, especially since cake shops and confectionery are considered non-essential services as of 21st April 2020.

Without further ado, here are 13 cake places in Singapore that still deliver to your doorstep for birthday celebrations at home.
Cake lovers, rejoice! A new parlour has opened. Located in the heart of Toa Payoh, The Twisted Trio is currently in its soft launch stage, but it is set for a grand opening this Sunday. It is a 5 to 10-minute walk from the MRT.

Nestled among the many shophouses that pave the streets of Kampong Glam, Rich & Good Cake Shop stands as something of a confectionery institution in Singapore. They specialise in a variety of Swiss rolls that come in several flavours from chocolate, mango, green tea to blueberry and even durian.
The two flavours, however, responsible for their claim to fame are their Kaya Swiss roll and Durian Swiss roll. Perhaps it’s due to the sense of nostalgia that these classic flavours evoke, but one thing’s for sure, they taste mighty darnn good.
