Sink your teeth into a slice (or two.. or three – we won't judge) of the best chocolate cakes in town.
Is there anything a slice of rich, fudgy chocolate cake can’t fix? Screw worrying about tantrums or raising two kids under two – all can be forgotten with sweet, chocolatey goodness. While chocolate chip cookies hit the spot while we’re on the go, nothing beats settling down with a cuppa and eating something with an actual fork. But what makes something as simple as chocolate cake stand out from the rest? Perhaps it’s exactly that – just fluffy chocolate sponge sandwiched by rich, flavourful frosting and nothing else. Without further ado, here’s our list of the best places in town to get your chocolate cake fix sorted:
Where to buy the most decadent chocolate cakes in Singapore
1. Awfully Chocolate
You know a cake is good if someone decides to build a business around it. And there’s no doubt about it, Awfully Chocolate’s All Chocolate Cake is a crowd favourite. It’s simple – moist, dark chocolate sponge sandwiched between layers of dark chocolate fudge – not just mouthfuls of mousse or cream. But best of all, we love the fact that we can get our Awfully Chocolate chocolate cake fix whenever we want!

2. Lana Cakes
There’s a reason why Lana Cakes has been in business for over 50 years – it makes a damn good chocolate cake. There are no fancy chocolates or carefully piped icing. It’s a simple classic chocolate fudge cake, layered with chocolate fudge frosting. Their signature chocolate cake is their most famous cake, perfect for a birthday, celebration or just because. Don’t forget to place your order at least a week in advance!

If there’s anything we love more than the truffle fries over at PS Cafe, it’s their Double Chocolate Blackout Cake. It’s a generous portion (enough to share between three people) consisting of a tower of two moist, chocolatey cakes layered and smothered with rich dark chocolate ganache. Yup, it’s as evil as it sounds.

Dessert-loving kids in Singapore grew up being either on Team Lana or Vicky’s for the best chocolate cake in town. Although we personally can’t decide which team we’re on, our friends at the Honeycombers think that Vicky’s Chocolate Fudge Cake is more moist and chocolatey than Lana’s. Oooh, controversial!

5. Jane’s Cake Station
Biting into the chocolate cake at Jane’s Cake Station takes us wayyyy back to the times when chocolate cake was just chocolate devil’s cake sponge and good old chocolate fudge. If that’s what you’re craving for, we say take the trip to Jalan Kayu in the northeast of Singapore and have yourself a bite of nostalgia at Jane’s Cake Station. Oh, and the only other option on the menu is Durian Cake.

6. The Marmalade Pantry
Make sure you bring your appetite and sugar cravings to The Marmalade Pantry if you decide to pop by for a visit and try out its chocolate cake. As big as a door stopper, this super fudgy cake packs a sweet, chocolatey punch that might be a bit too rich for most people. We like it though, and prefer it when it’s heated up and served with a scoop of ice cream!

7. The Fabulous Baker Boy
Although everyone loves the AB FAB Red Velvet Cake at the Fabulous Baker Boy, we need to give its Valhrona Chocolate Cake a shoutout. Don’t be fooled by the light sponge: all you chocolate-lovers will love the super-rich flavours, especially its smooth buttercream frosting. Yum. Oh, and don’t forget to check out the nearby Kampong Glam after!

8. Milk Moons
We usually love olive oil in everything savoury, but we didn’t know that it could take a chocolate cake to the next level! And that’s exactly what the Olive Oil Chocolate cake is like from Milk Moons – feathery, dark, moist and mouth-fillingly rich. Topped with chocolate ganache, you’ll want to eat this bad boy up with a good cup of coffee or a glass of fresh milk. Psst… you can get this cake from its sister store, Chalk Farm at Paragon, too!

9. Chocolate Origin
If you prefer your chocolate cake with lots of ganache, you’ll love Chocolate Origin’s Original Chocolate Cake. Expect rich chocolatey flavours and soft textures with each bite and lots of “ooh-ing and ahh-ing”. Might as well indulge and get both the original and the extra bitter dark version.

10. The Dark Gallery
It’s super obvious that The Dark Gallery specialises in all things chocolate, given its name. And it shows! The fan fave Signature Dark Chocolate Cake is a heavenly delight in every bite. Layers of rich chocolate sponge, velvety 66% dark chocolate mousse coating, cacao nibs and crunchy dark chocolate pearls toppings… It’s too good to only get a slice, we say.

11. Sunday Folks
Spending the day in Holland Village? Be sure to stop by this revered cafe for some treats. And by treat, we absolutely mean treating yourself to a slice of its Rich Cognac Chocolate Ganache. An indulgent combo, dark chocolate and cognac make. It’s simply too irresistible to not finish. Psst, this cake’s not meant to be shared with anyone – not with the kids because of the alcohol, moreso the alcohol-lovin’ adults!
Sunday Folks, Chip Bee Gardens, 44 Jalan Merah Saga #01-52, Singapore 278116
12. Laurent Bernard Chocolatier
Declaring itself “the best chocolatier in Singapore” is a very bold move… but we don’t disagree with that statement. Its 3 Chocolate Cake consists of white cream, dark and milk chocolate mousse, and dark chocolate sponge. We love how the cake is both sweet and bitter. The French really know how to make such a chocolatey, decadent dessert. Go for a lovely walk along the river after your well-deserved nom.

13. Patisserie Clé
Here’s another place that specialises in French desserts. It offers many sweet treats, but for this piece, we zoned in on The Gentlemen and Noisette, its two chocolate cakes. The former is a masterful combination of whiskey and dark chocolate, with some crunch courtesy of the cashew nut brittle. Biting into the cake gave us such a heady thrill, and we couldn’t stop scooping it up. If you prefer a classic chocolatey taste, the Noisette is a sure bet. Delicious – that’s all we have to say.

14. Ugly Cake Shop
Don’t let its name fool you – the cakes in the shop are anything but ugly. Rather, its name signifies using only natural ingredients for its bakes. No artificial flavours to be found here, folks! Its signature Big Daddy cake is made using Valrhona chocolate and nuts, which gives it that super chocolatey and moist texture. Serious chocolate lovers, we recommend the Nicholas. Made with high quality cacao barry chocolate, its bittersweet flavour will leave you wanting more.

Go on, indulge in some chocolatey goodness – you deserve it!
