This is the season to be jolly but more so, a significant time of the year where no one will judge you for over-indulging in dangerous amounts of cakes, pastries and other festive sweets. Ever had your eye fixated on a dessert at one of Singapore’s prestigious hotels but never getting around to treating yourself to one due to its exorbitant price? Well, now you can.
Little does anyone know, many hotels actually sell their freshly baked cakes and pastries at special half-price rates after a certain time every day. Sure, what you get may not be guaranteed to be absolutely fresh, but who’s to complain when you get to enjoy these mammoth treats at literally 50% off?
For all of you dessert fanatics, here is our list of 9 hotels where you can get festive cakes, pastries and other desserts at 50% off.
Established in 1993, Dino Cake House & Cafe is one of the most underrated cake shops in Singapore.

It is one of those places that we can never get sick of, because simplicity always works.
Formerly located along Tras Link, Cake Spade has recently moved to a newer location – in fact, just approximately two hundred metres down the road.

After sinking our teeth into the fluffy and moist cupcakes while scrambling to lick off its icing sugar – we were sold.

His fourth outlet at Palais Renaissance, Le Jardin d’Antoinette, is modelled after Versailles’s expansive outdoor garden.
