While we can’t all be domestic gods and goddesses when it comes to baking, never fear – these days, it’s a piece of cake finding someone else to do all the hard work for you (thanks to cake delivery services in Hong Kong).
Forget stressing over dough drama and slaving over sticky dishes. Instead, opt for one of these fabulous Hong Kong cake deliveries – whether you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary or just the fact that you love cake, here are some of the most divine made-to-order cakes in the city.
While we all know and love Teakha’s tea selection, you might not realise that the café also offers an extensive collection of homemade whole cakes to order for delivery. Inspired by the cakes that founder Nana Chan’s mother used to make, these rustic homespun creations – often with an Asian spin – prove just how delicious simplicity can be.
While there are plenty of tea-infused cakes on the menu (the featherlight matcha chiffon and delectably creamy hojicha cheesecake are all-time favourites), look out for seasonal specials; this summer’s selection includes Victoria sponge with fresh strawberries, and a tropical-tinged pandan and coconut chiffon cake.

Butterfly Patisserie at Rosewood Hong Kong
Ever since Rosewood Hong Kong opened in 2019, the hotel’s cake boutique Butterfly Patisserie has swiftly become a go-to destination for decadent and delicious desserts that deliver.
The work of award-winning executive pastry chef Holger Deh, these stunning creations frequently sell out – and once you’ve tasted a slice for yourself, you’ll soon see why.

Just one glance at Frenchie Toquée’s cake-filled Instagram grid is certain to get your mouth watering – so it’s no surprise that this online French bakery has become such a word-of-mouth hit in Hong Kong since its launch earlier this year.
Working from a professional licensed kitchen in Wan Chai, all cakes are made with love by founder Pauline, a former marketing manager turned certified pastry chef. Their show-stopping semi-naked layer cakes come in a variety of flavour combinations (we’re eyeing the vanilla and raspberry… or chocolate and salted caramel), whilst their chocolate raspberry cake featuring layers of silky-smooth dark chocolate mousse, crunchy dacquoise, feuilletine, praline and raspberries is certain to satisfy any chocolate craving in style.
