During cake consultations, clients collaborate one-on-one with Winifred, who will help create and design your vision into the perfect cake for your special occasion.
Cake tasting samples will also be provided, based on the flavours picked by clients themselves while booking an appointment for cake consultation.
Before any of our clients proceed with an enquiry, we will highly recommend you to look through our website and portfolio to get some inspirations from the work we have done.
Should you be interested in one of our cake designs and would like to re-create a similar one, great! You could do so via email conversations and our team will guide you along with the cake order.
If you’re looking at customising an unique cake design, we would recommend you to book an appointment for a cake consultation- it costs SGD85 and it comes with 2 servings of cake tasting. More information can be found in the question above: “What can I expect at the cake consultation?“
No, our cakes are not certified Halal.
We do cake tasting appointments.
Every session is priced at S$85 and usually lasts for an hour, depending on the duration we take to discuss and design your specialty cake.

Winifred Kriste Cake specialises in haute couture designer cakes and sugar flowers crafted on fondant-base finishing; a porcelain-like surface on the cake which allows exploration of art techniques like water-colour painting and embroidery effects.
We also do buttercream finishes for clients who prefer a more subtle floristry design to their cakes.
Fondant cakes are best preserved in air-conditioned rooms. However if you do not have one, we would suggest leaving the cake out for at most 1 hour, it’s also okay to leave it out for a longer period of time, but the fondant may start to ‘perspire’ as condensation happens due to the high humidity level in Singapore.
All our cake tiers will be 4” tall. The standard industry size of each serving for wedding cakes is measured 1” x 1” x 4” tall.
You may choose to only have 1 real cake tier, and all other tiers to be dummies. Price will still be dependent on the cake design, and if you go for some dummy tiers the price will be lower as compared to it being all real tiers.
At least 1 month, we take orders 1 year in advance.
For an exquisitely designed cake, ordering between 3 – 6 months in advance is the best; loads of time to discuss about details, book the slot (as full reservation only occurs when the 50% deposit is received) and to create your cake. Deal is, the earlier the more time we have to discuss and design your specialty cake.
Designs & Pricing
Our work is art- the creation of the order is an art and may be subjected to minor deviations from the design sketch and/ or design or description.
Once the design is set during appointment, reasonable changes to your order may be made; additional charges may be incurred depending on the nature of the changes. The order must still meet the minimum, excluding fees and delivery.
However no changes can be made 1 month prior to the event date.
Our custom couture fondant cakes begin at S$650 (2-tier minimum).

We welcome self-collection but you will have to take care of your order. Our responsibility ends once the cake is out of our studio. As most of our cakes are tall and heavy, we would strongly recommend you to have us deliver it for you.
