7 Home Bakers You Need To Know

A party is not a party without a cake. Cakes are an indispensable highlight at any celebration; they make the perfect dessert and double up as a prop for your picture-perfect photo booth.

These local home bakers go beyond just your basic vanilla cupcakes and Betty Crocker brownies. They craft elaborate three-tier fondant cakes from scratch and bake Parisian-approved macarons in every flavour and colour — all in the comfort of their own kitchen. With the steady rise of home bakers in Singapore, we’re sussed out seven of these talented bakers who’ve been making waves on Instagram with their edible art.

1. @mysisterbakes

A bigwig in the home bakers scene, @mysisterbakes is no stranger to the Instagram community. Specialising in butter-cream cakes sporting the daintiest of designs, each cake here is painstakingly baked and decorated by owners Esther and Issac. Cake decorating workshops are also held at their studio for all you aspiring bakers.

2. @flour_official

If you’re on the hunt for something more unique, @flour_official will be right up your alley. A giant donut cake and mini jelly ‘cloud’ cakes? We think yes. They also offer unorthodox flavours such as salted egg chocolate and lavender.

3. @elijahpies

Pie lovers, you’re in luck. Sticky caramel pudding pie, matcha latte pie, salted egg maple pie and earl grey rose pie are just some of the decadent and sophisticated homemade flavours that this talented baker has created.

Home baker Eliza keeps her cake designs minimal with an air of sophistication. We can’t get over the gold flecks and edible potpourri, she elevates a basic all-white cake with these classy embellishments – sometimes less is always more. Apart from cakes, Eliza also has a flair for pastries like cinnamon rolls and salted egg yolk beignets.

Cakes with flowers still remain one of the most popular choices, especially at weddings. Forget traditional cake toppers, Zee and Elle go all out with their fresh blooms. We reckon their cakes would be an absolute stunner at an outdoor wedding or a garden party.
7. @mac.bites

If pastel galaxy macarons don’t wow you, these heart-shaped ones will. GK is taking this French confection to the next level with her melt-in-your-mouth creations brimmed with cream cheese filling. Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than heart-shaped cookies – especially if they’re macarons.
