Malaysians love to celebrate anything and everything. From big festivals like Raya Puasa, Deepavali and Chinese New Year to small, intimate celebrations like a job promotion or birthdays.
For all of these joyous occasions, we know that a cake is a must but not just any cake, though. We want a specially made custom-cake that makes our celebration unique and different.
Now, the question you might be wondering is,
Who can make a custom-made special cake for us?
Your search is over! After hours and weeks of research, we have narrowed down a list of 12 fantastic, talented bakers who specialise in custom-made cakes in the Klang Valley. Let’s find out who they are, shall we?
1. Kek and Co.
The trend for cakes now is the drippy, glazed cakes that remind you of better days under the sunshine, daisies and colourful marbles. With Kek and Co., you can now know how sunshine, daisies and unicorns would taste like.
When two-competitors-turned-partners, Satira Diana and Farah Melissa got together and created Kek and Co. and proceeded to become one of the most sought after custom bakers in town, you know magic is cooking in the oven!
One of their current best-selling cakes is the trending unicorn cake. Is your little princess daughter’s birthday coming soon? This might just be the perfect cake for her!

Weddings are not only remembered for the beautiful bride, or the flashy decorations or even the location of the wedding reception. What people remember the most is the food and of course, the beautiful cake carefully crafted for the event. It is okay to have a lumpy looking chocolate cake for your Friday night “Netflix and Chill” but it is NEVER fine to have that on your wedding day! (Girls, you know what I’m saying).
With Gateuxlicious, nothing can go wrong! These custom bakers dubbed “the cake specialists” are a mother-daughter duo who are best known for their classic chic and elegant tiered wedding cakes and will make sure your cake for your special day is EXACTLY the way you want it to be; impressive and beautiful.

As an added bonus to this list, Butterkicap would like to make two special mentions here to custom bakers, Sugarlou and Sucree by Preeta, who we have previously featured. Both Sugarlou and Sucree by Preeta cater to those who wish to try creative and eccentric flavours that you CANNOT get elsewhere.
Man, writing about all these fantastic custom bakers sure is making me itchy to call them up. To quote Marie Antoinette, “Let them eat cake!” and I sure will.
