Why Custom Cakes Are Trending in Singapore Right Now?

Hi cake lovers! Have you noticed how customised cakes are popping up at every celebration in Singapore lately? Whether it's a birthday party, an anniversary, or just because you deserve a sweet treat, customised cakes are all the rage. Let me share with you why they’re so popular recently and why everyone’s talking about them!

So, I recently had the chance to chat with Lian He Zao Bao Singapore. We talked about Lee Hsien Loong’s fantastic customised birthday cake. Can you believe it? Our Prime Minister had a cake made just for him, and it was stunning. This got everyone buzzing about how unique and special customised cakes can be.

Back in the ’90s, birthday cakes were pretty simple. I remember my own birthday cakes – they were usually flat, rectangular sheets covered in chocolate rice. They tasted great, but let’s be honest, they weren’t exactly show-stoppers.

Fast forward to today, and wow, the birthday cakes changed! We’ve gone from those simple buttercream cakes to elaborate fondant-covered creations. I remember about ten years ago, my cousin ordered a 3D fondant cake for her kid’s first birthday. The delivery guy told her to keep it in an air-conditioned room – not just anywhere! We were all like, “Wow, this cake is really pampered!”

But here’s the thing – those fully fondant-covered cakes, while cute, were a bit of a hassle. They were dense and hard and could melt easily. That’s when bakeries like ours, Bob the Baker Boy, saw an opportunity. We started making buttercream cakes that were soft, delicious, and beautifully customised with fondant figurines.

Unicorn and Princess Rainbow Cake

One of the best parts of this job is making dream cakes for kids. I’ll never forget a sweet voice message I got from a little girl named Pearl. She said, “Hello Aunty, I want a rainbow cake with colorful hearts and stars. My favorite is a unicorn cake. I want to be wearing a pink dress and a crown riding on a unicorn! Can I have some flowers on the cake too?” How could I say no to that? So, we made her dream cake, and it was as magical as she imagined.

These days, people want cakes that not only look good and taste great but are also a bit healthier. We’ve worked hard to create a cake that’s just right – cottony and moist with half the sugar of regular customised cakes. It took a lot of trial and error (and a lot of eggs!), but we finally found the perfect recipe that everyone loves.

So, whether you’re celebrating something special or just treating yourself, remember that a customised cake is more than just dessert – it’s a piece of art that tells your story. Here’s to more beautiful, delicious moments!

Cheers with a cherry on top,

The Team at Bob the Baker Boy
