This Singapore legend looks more like an aunt’s cosy house than a bustling cake business. Don’t be fooled by the basic shop exterior or how simple the signature chocolate cakes look – these fudge cakes have a legion of fans and must be ordered a week in advance. A hit across generations in Singapore, the sole outlet of Lana Cakes in Greenwood Avenue has been in business for over five decades with no plans of expanding.
It's birthday time and you want a cake that's not over the top, and perhaps some cream horns as well. Keep it simple and old school at these bakeries and cake shops that have been in Singapore longer than you. Old is gold, after all – bring on the buttercream roses and walnut cakes.
