11 Places to Get Your Wedding Dessert Tables and Wedding Cakes in Singapore

When it comes to wedding cakes, Singapore couples can now customise their sweet centrepiece or dessert table with these 11 bespoke wedding cake couturiers. Have your cake and eat it too!

If you’ve been wondering where to get your wedding cake for your Singapore wedding celebrations, take a look at these creative cake couturiers and wedding dessert table providers who are able to customise a bespoke wedding cake to suit your theme. Whether you’re looking for a sophisticated three-tiered confection gilded in edible sequins and elegant fondant flowers, or want a more rustically romantic cake covered in buttercream frills, these wedding cake couturiers can bring your dream to life!

To get going on the design process, show your wedding cake couturier some references of some designs you like, or put together a moodboard of images that reflect your theme. When asking for a quote, do note that the prices of bespoke wedding cakes will vary greatly depending on the complexity of your desired sugar flowers, sculpted figurines, and other decorations, as well as the size of the cake tiers. You should also let the baker know how many servings you want from your cake, instead of asking for a quote by weight, as size and shape vary for bespoke cakes. Contact your preferred boutique bakers as early as possible, as the time needed to craft artisanal cakes limits the number of orders they take a week, and cannot accept your bespoke wedding cake order if they are fully booked that weekend.
