The Mandarin Cake Shop

Restaurants Central

The cake shop at the Mandarin Oriental has been satisfying sweet tooths since the 1970s. The signature 1963 cheesecake is a must-try with its melt-in-your-mouth texture. But if you’re looking for something that’s one-of-a-kind, try the mysterious rose petal jam cake – its homemade recipe remains a closely guarded secret.

Restaurants Pâtisseries Central

Ms B's Cakery offers show-stopping designer cakes. The mastermind behind it all is Bonnae Gokson, who is known for her glamorous confections and Haute desserts. The dessert names alone are enough of an attention-grabber, such as Better than Sex, Sweet Dreams and Madame Butterfly. But it’s not all about looks. The taste of these cakes is just as good and promises to make anyone fall in love at first bite – or so it claims on their website.

Sift specialises in cupcakes, but also offers pretty sweet whole cakes. We recommend blueberry cheesecake, chocolate mille-feuille, and Uji matcha red bean. But, to be quite honest, all the cakes are scrumptious. Plus they look great, are good value, and can be ordered for delivery in just a few clicks.

Zoë Cake Shop

Though the original Zoë is not the most spacious of shops, the pâtisserie has many fans and the brand has expanded to a total of five outlets since opening in 2002. Its signature Zoë cake, covered in hazelnut cream with a crunchy chocolate base, comes in square, circle or cute daisy shapes. If you’re a fan of fresh fruit and cream cheese, indulge in the kyoho and muscat cheesecake, a perfect flavour combination that's also rich in texture.
