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:
Awfully Chocolate All Chocolate Cake
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!
From $36 for a whole cake, Awfully Chocolate, multiple locations across Singapore, www.awfullychocolate.com
Fabulous Baker Boy Valhrona Chocolate Cake
Although everyone loves the AB FAB Red Velvet Cake at the Fabulous Baker Boy, we need to give their Valhrona Chocolate Cake a shoutout. Don’t be fooled by the light sponge: all you chocolate-lovers will love its super-rich flavours, especially its smooth buttercream frosting. Yum. Oh, and don’t forget to check out the nearby Jubilee Park after!
From $60 for a whole cake, Fabulous Baker Boy, The Foothills, 70 River Valley Road, Singapore 179037, t. 6694 8336, www.thefabulousbakerboy.com
Lana Cake Chocolate Cake
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!
From $48 for a whole cake, 36 Greenwood Ave, Singapore 28923, t. 6466 5315, www.lanacakes-since1964.com
Milk Moons Olive Oil Chocolate Cake
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 their sister store, Chalk Farm at Paragon, too!
From $60 for a whole cake, #B208-5 Takashimaya Food Hall, Ngee Ann City,
391 Orchard Road, Singapore 238872, www.milkmoons.com
Jane’s Cake Station Chocolate Fudge Cake
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.
From $38 for a whole cake, 265 Jalan Kayu, Singapore 799493, t: 6481 1322, Jane’s Cake Station
Marmalade Pantry Old Fashioned Chocolate Fudge Cake
Make sure you bring your appetite and sugar cravings to 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!
From $60 for a whole cake, various locations around Singapore, www.themarmaladepantry.com.sg
PS Cafe Double Chocolate Blackout Cake

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.
From $101.65 for a whole cake, multiple locations around Singapore, www.pscafe.com
Chocolate Origin Original Chocolate Cake
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.
From $37.80 for a whole cake, multiple locations around Singapore, www.chocolate-origin.com
Vicky’s Chocolate Fudge Cake
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!
From $44 for a whole cake, 1 Jln Anak Bukit, #02-K47, Singapore 588996, t. 6466 4000,
The scoop on the best ice cream in Singapore
Enjoy a slice of pizza time with the kids!
