Birthday cakes in Singapore
Celebrating birthdays with cakes has been a tradition since the early ages. With the large variety of bakeries in Singapore, including plenty of Instagram bakers, there is a wide selection of birthday cakes to choose from—be it eggless vegan options or multi-tiered ones.
Also, the new Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) falls between 16 May and 13 June, and I’ve seen multiple birthday boys and girls lamenting about celebrations during this period. Fret not, as you’re still able to celebrate at home with our list of 26 birthday cakes in Singapore, where all places provide takeaway or delivery options.
If you’re one to leave things to the last minute, Whyzee is a one-stop solution to keep your procrastinated worries at bay. Armed with a plethora of cakes, brownies, cupcakes, muffins, and lava cakes, Whyzee also offers options for one-hour express, same-day, or even midnight cake deliveries.
Made without preservatives, these birthday cakes are priced from $29.90. There are common flavours such as their layered Chocolate Praline Cake ($52.90), to more unique ones such as the fragrant Black Sesame Cake ($88.90) and addictive Pistachio Chocolate Cake ($88.90). Don’t forget to jazz your timely cakes up with fresh flower bouquets, customisable balloons, Jellycat plushies and more.
