SG50 Merlion Cake


This year is a very special year for all Singaporeans. We are celebrating Singapore’s 50th birthday.


A city that’s called my home. I would like to share this recipe and why I created it.

 I have used a Red Velvet Cake based in contrast with the White Vanilla Buttercream to represent Singapore’s flag. So when you cut the cake, you will cake that red and white interior!

What’s every Singaporean’s favorite all time biscuits? Gem Biscuits! They are small and cute. When I was young, I loved it so much that I eat it almost everyday. I like to eat the sugary icing first, then the plain old biscuits. Which, I’m sure people living in this little red dot do that. Yum, that’s nostalgic. 


Handmade Merlion and SG50 Logo Chocolates. This is a very unique way of using chocolate and I think we did beautifully. When we talk about creating a national cake like this, Merlion is ought to be there no questions asked. Merlion is our national icon and people will instantly recognize that it’s Singapore! I once said it in chinese, “一个很特别可是不真实的动物”. (A very special but unreal animal)

 Beautiful, nostalgic, and so Singapore! Looks like a lion garden city full of lovely citizens

  2. Transfer it into a piping bag.
  3. Draw an outer frame for your Merlion and make sure your inverted pictures are under a parchment paper and secure them using scotch tape.
  4. Start by tracing the outline of the Merlion. Use a toothpick to remove any flaws and even it out.

  6. Then flood the inside surface of the Merlion. Use a toothpick to spread.
  7. At the same time, trace SG50 words using melted white chocolate.

To assemble
  1. Carefully remove Chocolate Art using a metal spatula. Then, place it on top of the cake. Gently press it down to stick with the cream.
