Crazy milkshakes in Singapore
A lot of us wash down our meals with a drink, and the sweet-tooths among us tend to crave desserts to finish off a meal. Kill two birds with one stone with a monster milkshake, which is a combination of both – with an indulgent creamy base topped with all sorts of goodies like cotton candy, generous drizzles of chocolate sauce, and actual chunks of cake.
Here’s where you can get these over-the-top milkshakes in Singapore:
1. Cake Spade – milkshakes inspired by cake flavours

There’s only one word to describe the food served at The Benjamins – wacky. Their mason jar shakes are packed to the brim with toppings and slathered in sticky chocolate sauce. Among their overflowing milkshake creations is the Fairy Pebbles Shake ($16) which has toppings like fruity pebbles, cotton candy and local treats like ice gem biscuits and biscuit piring crackers.

The Unicorn (from $16) milkshake might look a cake at first glance, but underneath that whipped cream mane is actually a red velvet cupcake flavoured milkshake. Topped with meringues and sitting in a cloud of cotton candy, this creation is a treat for both the eyes and the tastebuds.

If bubble tea is your thing – which is the case for most of us – then try their Bubble Toast ($6.90).
