Where to Buy Cakes for Birthdays and Mother's Day During Circuit Breaker

The extension of the Circuit Breaker and the inevitable tightening of the list of essential services have led to the closure of specialised stores and standalone outlets that only sell beverages, packaged snacks, confectionery or desserts — at least until 4 May.

Much to the dismay of Singaporeans who can’t live without bubble tea or bak kwa.

And while there are alternative ways to get your bubble tea fix now…

I’ll bet a lot of you are low-key panicking especially since Mother’s Day is just around the corner and you’ve always celebrated it with a really nice cake from a speciality cake shop or your mom’s favourite bakery.

(It’s on 10 May, by the way.)

So how?

Well… I did a little research.

And guess what?

Even if the cake shops are closed, it turns out that there are ways to get speciality cakes and really good bakes during this Circuit Breaker period.

Best of all, you can even get the cake delivered so you won’t have to leave home.

Cakes From Cafes and Restaurants For Delivery

Despite the Ministry of Trade and Industry’s restrictions and measures to clamp down on non-essential services — it’s for everyone’s good by the way.

There are a couple of F&B establishments which can still operate as they serve BOTH cakes and savoury food.
