2. Zee & Elle
A boutique cake shop, Zee & Elle’s cakes are inspired by elements of nature, such as the calm sea and lush forest floor. Baker duo Zee and Elle cite Mother Nature as their muse, creating intricate, multi-layered celebration cakes and customised cakes inspired by scenic snapshots.
For instance, the duo crafted the Garden Cake (pictured above), inspired by a rustic garden, which is adorned with fresh thyme and dehydrated lemons for a bucolic look, along with small almonds and blueberry, to give it taste and texture. This is perfect for a garden party, or a rustic-themed celebration.
Zee and Elle also specialises in creating customised cakes for the occasion you want – from weddings, to birthdays, to first-month celebrations. Speak to the bakers and they’ll create natural organic form designs, in either one or two tiers, that will stand out on your special day.
If you’re looking for recommendations, we love the Rustic Safari Cake (pictured above), which is an elegant but fun option to have at a kid’s birthday celebration.
This is adorned with dehydrated lemons, monestra leaves, and cute animal figurines that will certainly delight both children and adults alike.
As part of the customisation, you’ll also get to choose the flavours for your top and bottom tiers (they can be different) to cater to varied palates as well. Pick from six delectable flavours: Vanilla Lemon, Chocolate Salted Caramel, Double Chocolate Crunch, Chocolate Raspberry, Strawberry Lemon, and Raspberry Passionfruit.

InVantion is owned by Vanessa, a self-taught home baker, who specialises in customised confections, and is dedicated to creating aesthetically pleasing and flavourful buttercream-based cakes.
No two cakes are the same when you place an order with InVantion. Simply state your requirements for the order if you’re after specific themes or characters and she’ll have you covered for all occasions.. To top it all off, she’ll even add her own creative touch to the design.
Kids will love InVantion’s colourful birthday cake featuring well-loved characters such as The Little Mermaid and Barbie (pictured above). You’ll want to try some of her signature flavours too, which include dark chocolate with hazelnut, matcha cream cheese, and vanilla with strawberry compote.
Apart from cakes, InVantion also offers customised desserts, such as cupcakes and mini fruit tarts for birthdays and intimate celebrations. If you have a specific dietary requirement, don’t hesitate to let her know. InVantion caters to special requests, so she can create a cake that’s less sweet, vegan, nut-free, and egg-free – ideal for kiddos with allergies.
All you have to do is place your order at least two to three weeks in advance (subject to availability) via Instagram or email to see if you can snag one of the limited weekly slots.
Prices start from S$65 for the smallest cake size (4”). Depending on the complexity of the customised designs and other additional add-ons, prices will vary.
MissGluttonSg specialises in delicious, customised buttercream cakes that are gorgeous to boot.
All cakes designs are done omakase (left up to the baker for customisation), with a draft given to customer before proceeding, so you’re sure to receive a splendid cake of utmost quality.
If you’re looking for something impressive, the baker is best known for her drinkable cakes – cakes that you can literally take a sip from, such as this boba tea-inspired confection (above). She has also created drinkable cakes featuring milk tea, Mr Coconut, Starbucks, and even beer.
For more ideas of what she can create, a scroll through her Instagram page will give you gorgeous examples of floral-adorned cakes, kids’ cakes, money-pulling cakes, as well as gravity-defying cakes.
If you don’t require customisation, we recommend MissGluttonSg’s signature lychee rose standard cake, which is naturally sweet and aromatic – and just as delicious as her customised ones. Plus, there’s no additional sugar added, so it’s a great option for diabetics or for those who are watching their weight.
*Do note that unlike standard cakes, customised cakes are coated with buttercream, which contains sugar.
All orders are subject to her availability, hence, you’re advised to place and confirm your orders as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
MissGluttonSg’s customised cakes are priced from S$125, drinkable cakes are from S$135, and pre-designed cakes are from S$95.
