It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…it’s…the legendary fondant cake. Whip one of these out during a party, and your friends won’t imagine that the stack of money or MJ set they’re seeing is actually a 12-inch chocolate-flavoured cake. 

So whether it’s to trick your buddies into thinking they’ve struck TOTO, or congratulating your mahjong kaki for NOT winning again, here are 10 crazy cakes for you to troll your friends – big time.


1. Yeezy shoe cake – for the #1 hypebeast

Hype. Beast. These are the first words that pass through your friend’s mind as he stares at the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 you’ve gotten him for his birthday. You can tell he’s already thinking of the Instagram post.

But as he watches, you stick a candle into the shoe. Then a second, and a third. “Stop! What are you doing!” he cries. You don’t relent. Two more candles are added. You whip out your lighter and set them all ablaze.

Dumbfounded, your friend stares as everyone bursts into a birthday song. Slowly, it dawns on him that this is not a trendy shoe after all. It’s a fondant cake you can get from Baker’s Thirteen.

Prices start at $400 for a 4kg cake.



2. Money cake – for mum or dad who always never strike 4D

Ever since you were a kid, you’ve watched your mum fork over money in exchange for lottery tickets. That was years ago. Till today, she still hasn’t found a winning ticket. But that’s okay, because you’re there for her with this money cake from Celebrate with Cake ($250). She might not have won the lottery, but at least she’s lucky enough to have you!



3. Army cake – for the friend that just “lost” his pink IC

Congrats! Your friend’s just been invited to an exclusive staycation in Tekong. If that doesn’t make him happy enough, remind him of all the fun he’s about to have over the next 8 weeks with this cake from Sensational Cakes

Prices start from $250 and the design is highly customisable. You can either opt to use your own toppers or get them to craft sugar figurines for you, such as a mini-version of your pal, along with army-motifs like tanks, trucks and a whole lotta nature. There’s even camo eclairs and macarons!



4. Football club cake – for die-hard soccer fans

Don’t worry about friends who aren’t on the same team either – just get the cake with your own team logo emblazoned all over, and your mates will be forced to enjoy it along with you.

Okay, we’re exaggerating. But still, if anyone’s a fan of the Japanese anime movie, they’ll dig this two-tier cake from TheCakeShop. Prices start at $280, and the design is customisable too – so you can add your favourite Studio Ghibli characters to the mix!
