From its humble beginnings as a homestyle bakery, Edith Patisserie has become a popular go-to option for honest-to-goodness cakes with interesting flavours. The bakery prides itself on its fresh, homemade cakes which do not contain any artificial ingredients or preservatives. If you’re watching your diet, you’ll be glad to know that they also go easy on the sugar – without compromising on taste and texture.
Run by pastry-loving duo Ethel Tan and Shaun Ong (the bakery was named after Ethel’s late mother), the cakes at Edith Patisserie have been tailored to suit local tastes. These guys make the perfect Lychee Rose Cake, but if you want something a bit more decadent, go for the Peanut Butter and Banana Cake – which is truly worth the calories, if we do say so ourselves.

In order to ensure freshness, all cakes are baked to order and finished on the day of delivery. Edith Patisserie also has a physical store front at Cavan Road (near Lavender Road), where you can pick up your cake order or buy some homemade pastries. Outside of their own cafe, Edith Patisserie also stocks their pretty pastries at Flock Café, One Man Coffee, The Coffee Shot and Mean Bean & Wicked Grind.

First things first, don’t let the misleading name fool you. If anything, the cakes at The Ugly Cake Shop are anything but ugly. Just look at their Instagram feed, if you don’t believe us.

Started by a foodie with a heart, The Ugly Cake Shop donates part of its profits to buying essential food for underprivileged children in Timor-Leste. If you’re wondering about the unusually self-deprecating name, The Ugly Cake Shop’s moniker stems from the fact that they don’t rely on artificial colouring, fondant or gum paste to create beautiful and delicious cakes. Going au naturel has never looked or tasted any better.
Orders & Delivery: Orders have to be placed at least 3 days in advance via their website or through the phone. Delivery varies based on location (between $20 – $40), and they accept payments by PayPal or bank transfer.
