When Singapore was in lockdown just about a year ago, many of us had loads of free time and transformed into home chefs and experimented with various recipes to settle our meals at home.
When days turned to months, many of us even tried our hands on baking. Remember when the local supermarkets ran out of essential baking supplies like flour and sugar? But if Circuit Breaker taught us anything, it is that not everyone has a flair for baking. Just take a look at the tons of images in my photo gallery of my failed baking experiences.
Over time, I learned that we're often better off purchasing a whole cake from a bakery store, whether it's for a birthday party, an anniversary, or just any other day that you feel like indulging in a cake.
Many of us have the idea that getting a whole cake would equate to burning a hole in our pockets. But with these amazing Fuzzie merchants, you can have your cake and eat it too.
Cat & the Fiddle
Cat & the Fiddle is an online bakery headed by award-winning chef Daniel Tay, and with the same-day delivery option that the brand offers, indulging in a cake has never been easier. They offer a wide variety of Halal-certified cheesecakes with whimsical names.
The brand offers 17 flavours of gourmet cheesecakes and all 17 flavours in their gourmet cheesecake selection are Halal-certified. Among their 17 different types of cheesecakes are flavours such as their Classic New York Cheesecake, Milo Dinosaur Cheesecake, and the crowd favourite, their rendition of a basque burnt cheesecake: the Charred Eclipse.
If you or your guests are a big fan of cheese, you definitely should check Cat & the Fiddle out.
Fuzzie privilege: Members enjoy 20% off all whole cakes for delivery and a free slice of cheesecake with every 2 slices purchased.
ROA - Vegan Cakes & Cupcakes
ROA is an artisanal Patisserie that has taken the simple, honest chocolate cake and completely revolutionised it. ROA's decadent cakes have landed on the tastebuds of many, including Hollywood celebrities David Foster and Pia Toscano.
The David Foster-Approved cakes and cupcakes are Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Eggless, making them a great addition to parties where guests have different dietary restrictions.
For those who are watching their weight, ROA uses avocados and not butter, brown rice milk, and psyllium husk. These cakes and cupcakes are therefore amazingly light on calories.
We particularly love ROA's Midnight Grand Chocolate Cake which consists of 3 incredibly smooth layers of fluffy dark chocolate sponge, layered with dark chocolate ganache that is lovingly enwrapped with chocolate, real edible gold flakes, and Moroccan rosebuds.
The cake tastes just like a chocolate cake but is much healthier, extremely light and might we say, quite possibly more delicious than the chocolate standard. With ROA, you can indulge in guilt-free desserts that are oh, so delicious.

Zee & Elle
You'll never go wrong when you get Zee & Elle's absolutely beautiful cakes that are handmade with love. The bakery specialises in crafting customised cakes, sweets and dessert tables. Their cakes and desserts are inspired by lush botanicals and whimsical colours.
Zee & Elle offers a wide range of cakes: you'll find delightful treats like a classic and simple fondant cake, a creative edible balloon cake, and even beautiful and extravagant cakes draped with edible gold.
Because the team draws inspiration from nature (think trees, the sea, and other natural beauties), you can expect your cake to be adorned with wreaths of leaves and real flowers. Whether you choose an animal theme, ocean theme, or garden theme cake, you can be sure that the cake you receive for whatever celebration or occasion you plan on will be a feast for the eyes, and the palate, of course.
