There’s nothing quite like a cake to top off a celebration, and in Hong Kong, we’re spoilt for choice.
Whether you’re searching for crowd-pleasing classics for a birthday or looking for something stunning (and equally delicious) to honour an anniversary, or perhaps you’re sending congratulations through gluten-free goodies, there is a cake for absolutely everybody.
And since we’re celebrating, why not opt for the most decadent, exquisite and thoroughly indulgent cake? Yes, we couldn’t agree more. So here it is, a list of our favourite cakeries in Hong Kong to celebrate in style, slice after slice.
Here are the best luxury cakeries in Hong Kong
The Rosewood’s Butterfly Patisserie has a variety of sweet treats to delight the city. These range from individual desserts and confections to whole cakes that offer inspired creations to celebrate with. Think Asian-inspired jasmine tea, grapefruit and mango cake, the patisserie’s signature mille-feuille, and probably one of the best traditional black forest gateaus we’ve had the pleasure of tasting this side of the world. What’s more, you can order ahead of time from their e-shop.
