Much like Christmas or New Year, your birthday only comes once a year and it carries an air of specialness that sort of makes – or pressures – you and your loved ones to make it a day to remember.
And when it comes to the birthday, you can’t deny the most important element of the day is the cake. Having the three-layer, butter cream-frosted cake studded with lit candles is almost like having a fairy godmother; the cake symbolises a sacred mark you wish to for all your dreams to come true.
That being said, having a birthday cake is crucial and what’s even more crucial is getting the right one that will cater to the palates of the birthday boys and girls most. Here, we’ve curated a list of bakeries and online shops that make custom birthday cakes to your order and liking in Bangkok. Scroll down to see which one would make it to your next birthday party.

A minimalist in style doesn’t mean a minimalist in taste. Woolloomooloo Café & Bar is a part café, part cake shop, inspired by an air of ease that makes it an approachable and unpretentious space.

Apart from soft cookies and chocolate-explosive brownies, Four O’cake is also a mastermind in cake-making. Their Strawberry Cream Cake covered in a pink-hued frosting and a blanket of whipped cream then studded with jumbo-sized strawberries is basically like a cartoon cake coming out of a Winnie the Pooh party scene. The Cheddar Cheese Cream Cake here is also a must-try if you love a good savoury-sweet mashup.

Those who think the round cake is just too “square,” Na.Wan.Sukh offers up a change of scene through their birthday cake served in a cake box.

The round cake is also available so you have both options to choose from.
