The most over-the-top celebrity birthday cakes

No birthday party is complete without a cake. But these days, just being scrumptious and Instagram-worthy is not enough, especially when you’re a celeb. In July, Fann Wong surprised Christopher Lee with a gravity-defying beer-thday cake, while Dennis Chew rang in his 44th birthday with a “raw food cake”, complete with “pyrotechnics”, last month.

Christopher Lee’s beer-thday cake

Cake or sculpture? On Chris’ 46th birthday, Fann Wong surprised her hubby on the set of upcoming Channel 8 series Doppelganger with a gravity-defying beer-thday cake featuring his favourite beer, Victoria Bitter. Created in Baker’s Heart’s most popular and decadent flavour, chocolate marquise, you can bet the cake tastes as good as it looks. And in case you’re wondering, they can also do a grown-up version infused with beer too. Just saying.

Sharon Au’s floral cake

We’ve lost count of the number of birthday cakes Sharon had this year (how does she stay so slim?!) but the one that erm, took the cake, has got to be this oh-so-pretty creation from Three Halves that was crafted and hand-piped by her former intern. We hear it took her five hours to pipe those buttercream flowers.

The Nathan Hartono cake

Nathan’s friends sure have a sense of humour. Just when we thought the Nathan-faced cake they got him last year (right) could not get any more unique, they upped their game and got him one in his likeness for his 26th birthday. With friends like this, who needs enemies?

Andie Chen’s agar agar cake

Moving on to something less terrifying, here’s a cake bearing a cartoon depiction of Andie Chen. Due to the actor’s many food allergies, his fanclub, Andievolution, not only decided to get him an agar agar cake for his 32nd birthday, but they got an artist in Hong Kong to do the cartoon. In fact, Andie likes the cartoon so much, he saved the printout and pasted it on his bedroom door at home.

Aden Chen’s dinosaur cake

Many boys go through a dinosaur phase and Aden is no different. So for his third birthday, mummy Kate Pang had to make some last minute calls to get him a dino-themed cake for their family gathering. Well, the effort paid off. She said Aden loved the strawberry and vanilla cake from Crème Maison Bakery and even devoured the dinosaur topper, though she admitted that she only just found out that his favourite dino is the T-rex and not the Stegosaurus. Oops.

Jeanette Aw’s on top of the world

When you are celebrating the birthday of someone who is as serious about baking as Jeanette, your cake better be awesome. And Jeanette’s fanclub, Jeanius, did not disappoint, gifting the actress with a customised 3D globe cake, which she said was “the most beautiful cake to date”. So why a globe cake? Because they hope Jeanette will embark on new adventures and that her “dreams [will] take flight and soar to great heights”.

Nat Ho’s Snakes and Ladders-themed cake

Some may balk at the sight of snakes on a cake but Nat’s fanclub, NATurals, couldn’t have picked a better cake for the actor-singer’s 33rd birthday. Not only is the cake’s design based on the theme of ‘Snakes and Ladders’, the title of the first single from Nat’s upcoming album, there’s also a meaningful concept behind it: “Red ladders = NATurals .. Our promise to be there to support as your ladder throughout your journey. Your albums representing your heart, your milestones. May you be crowned with Favor, Inspiration, Health and Happiness. Fill the squares up with your albums.. we can't wait to own them all! (sic)” said the NATurals. Awww…

Zed Lee’s lion dance-themed cake

Fann and Chris spared no expense when it came to their son Zed’s third birthday, commissioning Baker’s Heart owner, Zach Leong, to design a lion dance-themed cake for their little one’s soiree. Don’t be fooled by the seemingly simple round design. Zach spent all night crafting the whopping 3.5kg 3D cake made fully of vanilla sponge cake and fresh cream, and almost gave up after redoing it five times. Price tag: $280 – but that’s not even the most expensive cake.

Zed Lee’s Smurfy cake

For his birthday celebration in school, Fann splashed out $300 for a Smurf village cake for Zed - a small price to pay, considering how much he adored the cake and the Smurfs. “Fann shared that Zed loves the Smurfs and says that he is Brainy Smurf, Chris is Papa Smurf and Fann is Smurfette!” revealed Zach.

The 3kg cake was done in Baker’s Heart signature rainbow flavour so there’s an “element of surprise when they cut the cake” and is completely edible, except for the Smurfs, which are toy figurines.

Dennis Chew’s “raw food cake”

Sure, some bits may taste a little fishy but you gotta admit this “raw food cake” consisting of Mookata ingredients and topped with a giant sparkler is pretty lit. But there’s more. For dessert, Dennis and his friends dug in to not one, but three baked confections, cos what’s a birthday without sweets?

Romeo Tan’s army-themed cupcakes

The cast and crew of military drama When Army Calls threw Romeo a birthday party so it comes as no surprise that they got him army-themed cupcakes featuring adorable toppers shaped like grenades, tanks, rifles, and more. So which cupcake did Romeo have? The one with his character Captain Koh’s “face” of course!

Oon Shu An’s goth unicorn cake

Forget rainbows and glitter. The dark food trend has spread from waffles and ice cream to birthday cakes. Beneath the goth exterior of Shu An’s unicorn cake lies an “insanely delicious” red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and despite the "tears" (the eyes started melting before she could take a photo), we agree with the actress that the cake’s “almost too beautiful to eat”.

Bonus: Seraph Sun’s princess cake

Okay, so this cake was for Seraph’s farewell gathering with her fanclub (she will be relocating to Japan after getting married), but it is no less spectacular. Covered in pink buttercream rosettes and topped with a tiara, this two-tiered chocolate cake screams “princess” and couldn’t be more perfect for the saccharine sweet actress.
