On every special occasion, we always want the best for our loved ones and MetroCakes makes it easy by providing their customized service to make every occasion more memorable. Imagine, the joy of receiving a cake or miniatures when delivered right to your office or doorstep from your friends and loved ones. The element of surprise is bound to bring smiles.

The niche about MetroCakes is their comprehensive website to provide easy ordering. Moreover, they are extremely speedy in their delivery. For instance, orders placed before 11am can be delivered on the SAME day, between 6pm to 9pm while orders placed before 6pm can be delivered on the next day from 1pm to 5pm. The best part, MetroCakes offered FREE delivery for all orders of whole cakes or every order of miniatures above $40 so birthday celebrations can be done in a more convenient and affordable manner.

It may sound like a web business but MetroCakes has a nice shopfront, with the choice of whites and an open kitchen concept at 774 North Bridge Road.


The selection offered is very extensive and we are very honoured to receive a box of MetroCakes'miniatures featuring all 16 different flavors for us to sample.

MetroCakes I

The packaging and presentation is lovely that we don't deny the fact that they do make ideal gifts and disposable cutlery are included within their packaging for convenience of consumption.

Yuan and I tried 4 selections from this eye-catching selection, namely

Triple Thrill, Tropic Party, Dark Knight
(From L to R), Triple Thrill, Tropic Party, Dark Knight

Triple Thrill is MetroCakes' version of blackforest. The creamy chocolate mousse does evoke my memories towards Sweet Secret. Not sure if you remember the good old days of Sweet Secret for their raisin scones and creamy mousse miniatures.

Tropic Party falls short in expectation, since my benchmark is Ritz Carlton's mango mousse. The bulk of it is light vanilla sponge with a nice tint of mango and whipped cream.

Dark Knight, rich belgium chocolate mousse with crushed hazelnut bits. The entire combination works like a nice chocolate truffle. Lovely.

Two to Tango, a mango cheesecake, generously topped with mango chunks will appeal to most, given its light and smooth texture.

OJ Rhapsody, Two to Tango, The Duke of Earl

As for the other 12, the cheesecakes' series caught my sister's attention and she finished the Oreo Cheesecake (Ebony and Ivory), Blueberry Cheesecake (Bluebells), NY Cheesecake (The New Yorker) and Strawberry Cheesecake (Lady in Red) in 2 consecutive mornings. According to her, the cheesecake are smooth but the base is alittle too moist to her liking. Overall, the flavours are quite mild and I guess her appetite says it all.

Strawberry Shortcake (Strawberry Sweetheart) will disappoint if one fancies the Japanese version (e.g. Tampopo or Patisserie Glace) as the cream used is slightly richer with a coarser sponge. Durian mousse (Kingpin) is ok but durian fanatics would prefer the rich version offered by Goodwood Park.

The remaining selections do appeal to my daddy, for he is someone who prefers his cakes to have more body. Moreover, the cakes remain soft and delicious despite being kept in the fridge for about 4 days.

After several birthday celebrations with my colleagues, I realize there is a handful of people who prefers cakes that are lighter on the palate with more cake content. In this case, I will recommend MetroCakes to this group of people, not only for the convenience but also for the quality this place has to offer.

Many thanks to Cerissa for the complimentary box of miniatures.
