For true chocoholics, do away with fancy fondants and crazy flavors and just enjoy quality chocolate cakes from Awfully Chocolate.

If you’re wanting to impress your friends and family, the classic Mille Crepe cakes at Lady M will probably do the trick. But if you’re feeling adventurous, order one of their seasonal flavors like green tea or Earl Grey, or better yet, avoid the ordinary completely with their Banana Mille Feuille or Checkers cake.

Butter Crumbs

Need an Instagram-worthy cake? Look to Butter Crumbs for a Nutella- (including bottle), macaron- and Ferrero Rocher-topped cake, or a Tiffany blue-coated eclair and madeleine tower. Our personal pick is the matcha tart with fresh fruits. Make sure you order early though, because they need at least one month’s notice!

Check out their Facebook page, call 5418-9613, or email them at Delivery service is available for Hong Kong Island addresses.
