No birthday party or wedding these days seem complete without a beautifully adorned cake. And this comes at no surprise. In recent years, cake stores here in Singapore have been smashing expectations with their lavish designs and carefully produced cakes that promise to leave all your guests wowed.
And if price is a huge concern, fret not! We’ve done our research for you. Presenting Discover SG’s list of custom ‘cakeries’ (cake + bakery = an interesting new word learnt!) that promises to be both pocket friendly (within careful means, of course!) and visually entrancing. You’ll be so much in awe by the end of this post that we bet you either want to give baking a go, or you’re running to the store to make a purchase.
1) Mad About Sucre
Mad About Sucre bakes some of the most gorgeous cakes here in Singapore, period. This cakery marries some of the best French confection techniques with the most glorious British designs. Think clean, white-tiered cakes with an intense focus on the sublime details and features that inevitably stand out.
With cakes baked by co-owner and Le Corden Blue graduate Lena Chan, quality is something that you can certainly be assured of. As a promise to their customers, the cakery does not use pre-mixes and artificial flavorings, and instead only uses healthy ingredients like organic flour and raw unbleached sugar.
If you’re not too interested in full sized cakes, you could head down to their brick and mortar store to try some of their fresh baked pastries and delicacies as well.

Some passions blossom out of curiosity, as did Feby’s (pronounced Phoebe) love for baking. Astoundingly, the owner and head baker of Febspantry learnt everything about the trade without any professional help or expertise. It all started with a heap of curiosity and tons of trial and error.
Feby’s immense talent has allowed her to produce some of the most gorgeous floral cake designs. She has a keen eye for colors, as she beautifully pairs the different floral designs and patterns against a white buttercream cake base. Each single tier cake painstakingly takes about 4-6 hours to decorate, which sure makes the cake cutting session a whole lot tougher now.
Aside from her custom-made cakes, Feby also bakes gorgeously designed cupcakes and occasionally, cookies.

Price Range: $120 – $290 (depending on the size, flavor and design)

7) My Sister Bakes
My Sister Bakes started out in a little kitchen in a Melbourne apartment, as Esther began working on ways to use her basket full of freshly picked strawberries. It was then that she made her first Strawberry Crumble Cake, and slowly began exploring different cake recipes.
The relatively new store specialises in buttercream (which is a type of icing or filling used inside cakes) cakes that is available in both their classic and signature flavours. Some of their classic flavours include chocolate and red velvet, while their best selling and more popular signature flavours include chocolate salted caramel, matcha, milo dino and earl grey.

8. Edith Patisserie
Edith Patisserie bakes some of the most ridiculously beautiful cakes I’ve ever set eyes upon. And this does not encompass only their custom cakes. For starters, their standard cakes are ridiculously well designed, and taste really good!!!
They can also customise cakes of any design – from the more floral and rustic looking ones, to even ones with a cartoon design that are best for kids. I’m absolutely in love with their ombre cakes that are topped with either caspier or baby’s breath flowers.
