5 Different Types of Birthday Cakes in Singapore Bakeries

Birthday Cakes in Singapore Bakeries

A birthday isn’t complete without a cake. The tradition of slicing it, blowing the candle, making a wish, and then sharing it with family and friends is what makes birthdays extra special. 

Any type of cake can be a birthday cake because it’s the nature of the occasion that defines it, not the ingredients and design. Even small cupcakes count as birthday cakes!

There are certain types of cakes that are more popular on birthdays, though, but any cake works.

Below, we have put together a shortlist of birthday cake varieties so you know what your options are when it’s time to surprise a dear friend!

1. Chocolate Cake

You’ll never go wrong with a chocolate-based cake because it’s everyone’s favourite, even adults go crazy over anything chocolate. It’s easy to see why!

There are lots of chocolate cake varieties too, so there’s quite a long list of choices. There’s lava cake, mug cake, fudge cake, and Sachertorte, among others.

Chocolate cake can be a simple flour cake, with a chocolate buttercream frosting. Some bakeries bring it to the next level by mixing coconut, pecan, and caramel with the frosting.

2. Chiffon Cake

Chiffon cake is another type of cake that’s common in birthday celebrations, perhaps the second most popular after chocolate cake. 

It’s sort of a hybrid between an oil cake and a sponge cake because of the rich flavour and the tender and fluffy texture.

Chiffon cake is light and moist because it uses vegetable oil (instead of butter) and a great deal of egg whites, so sometimes a single slice isn’t enough to satisfy your appetite. 

It tends to have a mild and soft taste too, which is great for those who don’t like super sweet cakes. 

Cotton Chiffon is a popular bakery in Singapore that can whip up 28 types of chiffon cakes. Get in touch with them for birthday cake deliveries.

3. Red Velvet Cake

Red velvet cake is a crimson-coloured layered cake that’s made with butter, but some versions are made with oil instead. 

It’s another popular cake for celebrations because of its vibrant red colour, but there’s more to it than that. It has an acidic taste that comes from vinegar, and the cream cheese in the frosting. 

The acidity is balanced out by the sweetness from the buttermilk and raw cocoa, so it’s not hard to see why it’s irresistible to children (and grown-ups)!

There’s a chocolate flavour in red velvet cakes because of the cocoa, but it’s far from being a chocolate cake under the guise of a different colour. It uses far less cocoa than a traditional chocolate cake. 

You can order a luscious red velvet cake from Creme Maison Bakery for as low as S$52.

4. Carrot Cake

Go with carrot cakes if you’re looking for healthier alternatives to traditional flour and butter cakes. 

Carrot cake is a shortened cake that uses oil as its main source of fat and is made with grated carrots, which make it extra moist. Most of its flavours come from carrots, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg

It’s healthier because the carrots serve as a natural sweetener to the cake, so it only needs a small amount of white sugar to sweeten it up. 

Carrot cake is frosted with cream cheese icing and sometimes garnished with roasted pecans for added texture.

5. Hummingbird Cake

Hummingbird Cake is a rich, moist, and dense cake that’s perfect for birthday parties and get-togethers with friends. 

It’s packed with flavours like pineapple, pecans, banana, cream cheese, and a range of spices, so a single slice is enough to fill you up. 

It tastes like a hybrid of banana bread and carrot cake. The banana flavour overpowers the pineapple, but the pineapple makes up for it by giving it a unique texture. 

The mashed banana and crushed keep it moist, while the pecans contrast the texture by adding some crunch.
