Young or old, we all have that one special day to mark a new stage in our lives. You've guessed it. Your birthday. Whilst most people have their individual birthday traditions, there's one thing that can be agreed on. Birthday cake is needed. The moment of being surrounded by family and friends, blowing out candles or cutting the cake are memories to be treasured forever, so it's safe to say the cake also needs to be out of this world. When it comes to your birthday cake, Singapore has pulled out all the stops, with plenty of eateries offering up the finest party foods. Here's some birthday cake ideas to get the celebrations underway.
1. Signature Etoile Chocolate Mousse Cake
Where better to start than with a fan favourite? If you're in doubt over what birthday cake to get, chocolate is always a good place to start. There is no shortage of them in Singapore and you can guarantee that everyone will love it. Temptations Cakes' Signature Etoile Chocolate Mousse Cake is truly decadent. The layers of Belgian chocolate mousse and light sponge are a match made in heaven and you can order it in 2 different sizes, 16cm and 20cm, to make sure there's enough to go around. Then again, once people get a taste of this, there's no way of knowing how long the cake will last!
2. Carrot Cake
We're loving the sound of Delcie's Carrot Hummingbird Cake. You order it for 5 or 8 people, so there's lots of cake goodness for a big birthday gathering. And believe us, Delcie's Carrot Cake is the very epitome of goodness! Delcie's focus on healthy bakes means that you can indulge, without feeling guilty. Vegan- and diabetic-friendly, this carrot cake is packed full of fresh carrot, banana and apple puree. You may think you're imagining this cake, but trust us: it's real!
3. Rainbow Cake
As birthdays are a happy occasion, NOM Bistro and Bakery's Rainbow Cake adds an extra touch of brightness and colour to the day. The mighty, 6-layered cake is a tower of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple sponge heaven. This isn't the end of it either. Binding the sponges together is smooth buttercream, which you can order in 3 different flavours: Chocolate, Cookies N Cream and Salted Caramel. A fun and delicious cake to treat yourself with, which incidentally comes by the slice - so you've an excuse not to share! After all, it's your birthday, so you've earned the right to be a bit selfish.
If you're hosting your birthday party, and are seeking the ultimate sharing platter, then never fear, for The Frosted Chick has you covered, with their cupcake boxes. You can order boxes of 6 or 12 cupcakes in any of the flavours on the menu, and there's a lot to choose from. Red Velvet, Mint Choc Chip and Lavender Earl Grey are just a taster. Each cupcake is as light as air and topped off with the creamiest of frosting. A sweet birthday treat to remember.
After seeing the birthday cake options Singapore has to offer, you're bound to be feeling the party vibe. Deliveroo can bring the cakes to your door, leaving you lots of time to plan the party.
