Nestled right in the heart of Arab Street (and a newly opened outlet in Jewel), this popular bakery withstood the test of time by churning out solid rolls of soft and fluffy cakes complete with rich and creamy fillings. Fall in love with their uber popular Kaya ($8) swiss roll that is delectably eggy and fragrant. If Durian is your thing, you''ll absolutely adore their freshly made Durian ($8) swiss roll that is mixed with white cream. For a refreshing and fruity alternative, try the Mango ($8) flavour. Fun fact: Each roll can be cut into at least 12 slices— affordable and great parties or gatherings!

Good for impressing the fam, look to this elegant French-inspired tea room for coffee, tea and dessert. Tea fanatics would love Kyoto ($9) for its hojicha-flavoured mousse combined with orange confit layered over an Okinawa black sugar sponge layer. For something lighter, Chloe ($9) is a great option— think yuzu cremeux, white chocolate vanilla mousse on top of a light sponge cake base. If you're feeling adventurous, try their Earl Grey Bubble Tea ($9) for tea-infused sponge cake topped with salted cream cheese, fresh mango cubes and black sugar pearls.

Probably known as the ultimate hipster tea spot, this cafe definitely holds its own when it comes to tea-centric beverages and cakes. Rich and dense, their fragrant Goma cake ($7.80) is a must try. For something less sweet, opt for the Mont Noir ($7.80), a twist on the classic mont blanc. Matcha-lovers go straight for the moist Matcha Cake in a jar ($7.80) where layers of matcha cream and crumbly matcha cake come together for a matcha overload. Wash it all down with their wonderfully silky Matcha Hojicha Latte ($6).

Perfect for teatime in small groups, pop by this quaint cafe for gorgeous and delicate creations. Try the elegant Suzette ($9.80) that is both a treat for the eyes and the tastebuds — think smooth, creamy chocolate, orange caramel and liquored mousse on top of tart base. Worth the calories, Miss Ispahan ($9.80) is a rose cream delight with rapsberry confit, lychee gelee, vanilla sponge and brown sugar sable. With the #BurppleBeyond deal, pair your cakes with a drink, like the refreshing Hibiscus Lime Tapping Tapir drink ($6).

Come to this dessert cafe for beautiful French cakes after dinner. Refreshing and tart, the Flor de Passion ($9) sees caramelia mousse, passionfruit cremeaux and passionfruit Jelly on top of joconode sponge. For something sweeter, get the decadent Louis XV ($9) with chocolate mousse, praline feuilletine and hazelnut dacquoise or the soft and airy Corn Soufflé ($18) served with a side of toasted popcorn ice cream.

Make a mental note of this Jap-born cake store that is known for their use of raw milk from the Konsen region of Hokkaido. Made extra light and creamy thanks to the raw milk— their Double Cheesecake ($7.90) is a must-try! Expect three distinct layers in this cake: as its base, a baked cheesecake with cream cheese, a no-bake layer of mascarpone cheese as its middle, and to top it off — a layer of fresh cream with sable crumbs. Save some space for The Shortcake ($10.20) that Burppler Lyvia Simano raves to be 'the best shortcake' she has ever had. Think fluffy sponge cake topped chocolate cream and fresh berries. Yum!

Hidden along Northbridge Road is a tiny hole-in-the-wall churning out delicious whole cakes and yummy small bites. Get the fragrant and moist Genmaicha Cake ($50 for 6'') or the fluffy Earl Grey Mango Cake ($48) for tea-based cake layered with mango curd. Order some bittersweet Matcha Blondies ($9 for a box of 6) to enjoy with loved ones at home. Also good, get their Bubble Tea Tart ($7.50) for milk tea custards and chewy pearls held in a crumbly buttery crust or the smoky yet floral Bubble Thai Milk Tea Tart ($8.50) that are only sold from Fridays to Sundays!

File this away for when you're on the hunt for impressive whole cakes (best to order 4 days in advance). Try their popular Kueh Salat ($5.30 per slice, $72 for whole cake), or be wowed by their version of the strawberry spongecake, Summer Berry ($80 for whole cake) featuring four, fine feathery vanilla sponges doused in fresh cream and berries. Otherwise, indulge in the super addictive Dark Chocolate Olive Oil Cake ($60 for whole cake) or their experimental Guinness Chocolate Cake ($7.80 per slice) that proved to be a delicious success!

Keep this in mind for local flavoured whole cakes perfect for birthdays. A must-try is their fragrant Ondeh Ondeh Cake ($5.50/slice; $45, whole) which sees moist pandan sponge cake with gula melaka and coconut shreds. Try the unique Pulut Hitam( $42.00) for black glutinous rice between layers of pandan cake and coated in coconut buttercream. New but also fabulous is the Teochew classic Orh Nee You (from $45.00) which transforms a typical wedding dessert into a smooth yam-based cake.

Reserve this for hardcore cheesecake lovers who will appreciate this tiny but delicious creation. The Hokkaido Cheesecake ($28) sees Hokkaido cream cheese and imported Italian mascapone atop a light and fluffy Japanese soufflé cheesecake base. Available only in limited quantities, their mild but decadent Matcha Fromage Cheesecake ($35) is made with premium matcha from Kyoto, and matcha and mascarpone cream cheese. For a zesty alternative berry-licious, give their Fraise au lait Double Fromage ($35) a try.

This cute floral-themed cafe in Serangoon fills up fast so come at odd hours to snag a seat. Tea-fanatics, you'll love the fragrant and not-too-sweet Earl Grey Swiss Roll ($5.90) or the Thai Milk Tea Swiss Roll ($5.90) that uses a tea mix from Thailand. Burppler Julius Lim recommends pairing your swiss roll with coffee (with #BurppleBeyond 1-for-1 deal, get two sets with coffee for the price of one!).

With outlets conveniently located in shopping malls, getting a great cake is a no-brainer with Cedele. Get the excellent Carrot Walnut Cake ($7 per slice, $53 for 8") with thick and creamy cream cheese frosting, or try unique creations like the Sesame Tahini Cake ($7, $52 for 8"). The delectable Chocolate Matcha Cake ($7, $63 for 8") with rich chocolate truffle and green tea cream is a winner in our books. Pair all cakes with tea and you're sorted!
