Father’s Day is coming up and you’ve got everything prepared – a nice manly gift and maybe a dinner reservation at a good restaurant — now all that’s left is to end the night on a sweet note with a special cake.

There are lots of places to get a cake from in Singapore but perhaps its worth taking your search to Instagram and getting dear ol’ dad something a little more customised. So check out these 12 Instagram Bakers to order Father’s Day cakes from. Whether your dad has a sweet tooth or not, he’ll be heartened by this special cake designed in a golf ball or his favourite movie, or whatever else he enjoys. Just make sure you get your order in early!

From the creator of Maple and Market, Sarah’s masterpieces are dainty and very, very pretty. But fret not if they aren’t ideal for a Father’s Day cake.

Besides floral cakes, she also has watercolour cakes like this grey Father’s Day one.

If you thought this was a soft toy, think again. Susanne Ng’s cakes look surreal, almost too much like plushies. Specialising in chiffon cakes, her designs are inspired by cartoon characters and food like hamburgers, dim sum and nasi lemak.

Super adorbs!
