The Best Cakes in Sydney

A birthday party, baby shower or bridal shower isn’t complete without a cake. While most of us have a few go-to places to pick up a pre-packaged dessert, there are a number of talented local bakers that specialise in everything from gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free sweets. If you’re in search of a special cake for your next celebration, or simply want to indulge in a sweet treat, we’ve put together a list of the 15 best cakes Sydney has to offer.

Founded in 2013, Penny Fours is one of the city’s best bakeries, offering handcrafted pastries, breads, and cakes with a distinctly vintage feel. The team of master pastry chefs uses the finest ingredients to create decadent treats, including a range of different flavours of cupcakes and a variety of personalised cakes (from weddings to baby showers).

This family-run bakery is famous for its amazing sourdoughs, but they also make some of the most delicious cakes in Sydney. Their flourless lemon and Belgian chocolate cakes are a particular highlight, but don’t miss the carrot and walnut, orange and pistachio, or Persian love cake either. They deliver across Sydney and are open to orders all day long.

What started as a little rustic corner store bakery has become a true Sydney institution. Bourke Street Bakery are masters of all things handmade with the finest produce and artisanal skills, which has resulted in a cult following for their incredible sweets. While their stunning cakes (flourless lemon and Belgian chocolate, and a whole bunch of others) take centre stage, don’t pass up their scrumptious pies, scones, breads, and cookies either.

If you’re coeliac, or just have a gluten intolerance, finding delicious baked goods is often a challenge. But not so at Wholegreen Bakery. They’re 100% gluten-free, and accredited by Coeliac Australia to ensure their products are safe for customers with food intolerances. Sourdough, cookies, muffins, and a range of cakes (including dark chocolate and beetroot, lemon coconut, and chai-spiced carrot) are all available at their two inner Sydney locations or at Sydney markets.

A baby’s first birthday is a wonderful time to celebrate and what better way to do so than with an epic cake smash session. Capturing these precious moments in a professional photography session is an amazing way to remember this very special occasion. Samantha of Faithful Photography is a highly sought-after newborn, baby and cake smash photographer with 6 years of experience safely handling babies of all sizes in her studio in Mount Annan. She is also available for outdoor photo sessions at the client’s location of choice. For more information, visit her website. Cake Sydney
