Birthdays and special occasions are meant to be just that, special! If you're looking for a cake that's more unique than what you'd find off the shelves in chain stores, home-based bakeries are your best bet.


Keep reading to check out 12 home-based bakeries in Singapore where you can get unique & photo-ready baked treats!

#1 Tokonatsu Kitchen - Japanese-style breads & cinnamon-sourdough hybrids

Helmed by a Japanese home baker, Tokonatsu Kitchen came about when the now mum of one wanted control over what went into her food during her pregnancy.

She started cultivating her own sourdough starter and baking her own bread. To stand out from the many sourdough bakeries in Singapore, she created a niche - cinnamon rolls with a hint of sourdough.

True to the Japanese aesthetic and kawaii culture, the sourdough-infused cinnamon rolls ($27), bagels (from $12) and Yudane milk bread ($15) have a minimal and effortlessly pretty look. The Yudane milk bread, in particular, looks so adorable with bear and polar bear faces (+$1). This bread has a soft texture and subtle sweetness that's sure to be a hit among kids.

#2 ilovefluffybakes - cookies in tins & creative designs

Its founder, Sophie, had dreams of opening a bakery that were set aside for adulting duties like parenting. This changed during the circuit breaker in 2020 when she finally had time to bake again and started ilovefluffybakes.

Her bakery's bestseller is the Cornflakes Raisin Cookies ($18/tin), a simple comfort snack. All cookies come in gorgeous metal tins which you could repurpose as storage tins for accessories or loose change.

If aesthetically pleasing food is your weakness, you'll be sorely tempted by the Cartoon Butter Cookies ($28) and Mahjong Cookies ($38.80).

The Baker Bok was first launched in 2014 but only started taking off recently, probably thanks to their shift towards Korean-style bento cakes which are right on trend.

#4 Tartistry by M - artisanal tartlets

Run by a wife & husband duo, Maryam and Mirza, Tartistry by M transpired from Maryam's love for baking with her mum and daughters. After experimenting with all sorts of baked treats from macarons to tiered wedding cakes, she found her calling in artisanal tartlets.

These gorgeous tartlets look just like the ones you'd find at high-end bakeries but at a less premium price. They're sometimes decorated with edible flowers too.

The tartlets are filled with either a rich & creamy homemade custard or chocolate couvertures with a high percentage of cocoa butter (i.e. a stronger chocolate flavour). The menu changes every 4-6 weeks or so, depending on seasonality and ingredients.


Their bestselling flavours are Fruit Vanilla Custard, 70% Dark Choc Sea Salt, S'mores Cookie Crumble and Chocolate Cocoa Nibs.

Prices range from $30 for a Fruits Mini Platter of 16 tartlets to $64 for an Artisanal 'glass' Gift Box of 25 tartlets.
