16 Best Chocolate Cakes In Singapore That Are Fudgy And Dense, Including Customisable Ones

17th January 2022

Best chocolate cakes for any occasion


As a kid, I’ve had my fair share of chocolate cakes. I love chocolate so much, I decided to work for a chocolate dessert cafe. So here are my picks of the best chocolate cakes in Singapore if you’re in need of a cake for someone like me.

These cakes are ultra-classic, fudgy and dense, eschewing fancy toppings and frills in favour of a good ol’ chocolate overdose.


1. The Durian Bakery

The Durian Bakery offers a unique experience for durian and chocolate lovers alike. Glazed in a thick layer of 100% dark chocolate ganache, the six-inch Dark Chocolate Fudge Drip Cake with Mao Shan Wang Core ($78) is handmade with the bakery’s classic MSW SilkyGold Durian Puree, and is good for eight people. 

The durian puree is creamy and has a bittersweet aftertaste which complements the decadent chocolate fudge. No preservatives are added, and The Durian Bakery only uses premium ingredients such as Grade A Mao Shan Wang to ensure the quality of every cake.

If you like black forest cakes, opt for the Black Forest Dark Cherry with Mao Shang Wang Core ($78). Made in small batches daily, black cherries are incorporated into the chiffon sponge to balance the richness of the durian. 

Complimentary same-day islandwide delivery is available for purchases over $90, or for $10 otherwise. Quote ‘EATBOOK’ at checkout for a free box of Black Gold Musang King Durian Mochi ($19.90) with a minimum spend of $50. Don’t wait any longer as this promotion is only available until 31 March 2022!

Offering a retro-style chocolate fudge cake, Vicky’s Cakes is known for their Signature Fudge Cake (from $44 for 800g) and their friendly service. Their cakes are pudding-like, but not too thick, and are accompanied by a slight bitterness from the dark chocolate that lingers at the back of your throat. This slab of chocolate goodness simply melts in your mouth and is super addictive for a chocolate lover like myself.

Many swear by this affordable cake, as it is light and not too sweet.

Compared to its counterparts, Choc.a.Bloc is an underrated bakery hidden behind Bedok 85, underneath a HDB block.

Ugly Cake Shop manages to create tasty and beautiful cakes using only natural ingredients. Their bestseller, Big Daddy (from $30 for four inches), claims to be the “Big Daddy of all chocolate cakes”—a bold statement many loyal customers stand by.

Though it may look rather plain, the pillowy-soft cake combines bittersweet dark chocolate with Nutella for extra chocolatey goodness. The icing on the cake for patronising Ugly Cake Shop is that part of their profits goes towards buying much-needed protein sources for the kids in Shallom School, a school in Timor Leste.

6. The Patissier

The Patissier’s Chocolate Fudge Cake (from $55 for 500g) got me hooked at first bite. Its initial tinge of sweetness was quickly overtaken by a rich, floral taste that’s not heavy on the palate. For someone who loves dark chocolate, this has become one of my favourite chocolate cakes, as it has this bittersweet aftertaste I’m so fond of.

Blessing us with their 3 Chocolate Cake (from $71 for 500g) is Laurent Bernard Chocolatier. Silky white, milk, and dark chocolate mousse are used in creating this chocolate delight. The combination of the three different kinds of chocolate results in a very balanced flavour. As a chocolatier, the brand also has a wide range of other chocolate cakes, such as their Lola Cake (from $72 for 500g), made of dark chocolate sponge, and their Pure Chocolate Cake (from $73 for 500g), a flourless creation made with premium South American cacao.

Before it closed down, Boo Boo Cake from New York Dessert Cafe (NYDC) was my go-to dessert for any occasion. I couldn’t find anything that matched up to the cake—that is until I had Chocolate Origin. With a layer of chocolate ganache between two layers of soft chocolate sponge cake, their Original Chocolate Cake (from $39.80 for six-inch) is a crowd favourite. Glazed with dark chocolate, this cake looks simple and classy too—perfect for a birthday.

Lana Cake Shop is another popular household name. Although it has recently switched owners, the 52-year-old shop still dishes out the classic chocolate cake that’s moist, smooth, and not overpowering. Beloved for its homely, old-school taste, their Lana’s Chocolate Cake ($55 for 1.2kg) is the kind of cake your mother would make. It consists of jelly-like fudge and rich, pillowy chocolate cake, which comes together really well.

Awfully Chocolate’s All Chocolate Cake (from $40 for six-inch) has two layers of soft and moist chocolate sponge accompanied by a layer of chocolate fudge. Plus, the fudge is made using the store’s very own chocolate, which has a dark roasted flavour!

LUNA may be best known for their Orh Nee Cake (from $8 a slice), but truer to the name of their bakery is the LUNA 2.0 ($9 for a mini cake, $90 for a whole cake), a rich and intense chocolate mousse cake. The Valrhona Guanaja 70% chocolate mousse is the star, and this richness is accented by hazelnut and dark chocolate sponge. Expect deep, intense chocolate in every spoonful with a touch of hazelnuts for texture.
