When it comes to cupcake presentation, the three sibling owners behind this bakery get it just right (their Facebook page really is a salivating sight). Thankfully, the flavors are pretty spot on too. The creatively designed cupcakes (9 pieces for B1,350) come with all sorts of colorful frosting and can be customized to your every whim, making them a real talking point. The menu is not limited to cupcakes, but also covers flour cakes, cheesecakes, pies, cookies, and macarons. Their popular Instagram (@bakeminister) offers a tantalizing taste of what’s available.

Suparadi “Fin” Siwapornpitak, the owner of Radi, got her start in the online food biz through her Finny the Chef Facebook page where she posts step-by-step cooking videos. There she provides a link to her online store, which has been growing steadily in popularity over the past few years to the point that she opened a walk-in shop a month ago. The substantial menu includes such specialties as the mini-cupcakes (B240) that can be finished in four bites, giving you the chance to taste as many varieties as possible. Try the Donkey Kong (banana chocolate cupcake with chocolate fudge frosting and topped with milk chocolate) or others with fillings she claims can’t be found elsewhere.

At first it can be hard to tell if the objects posted on their Facebook page are in fact cakes, so weird and wonderful are the designs. Recent posts show everything from an edible DSLR and a Black Bentley to Iron Man and a latex-clad Lady Gaga (well, she did always say that her Christmas tree is delicious). Simply email them with your idea or inquiry and they can sculpt it for you (B1,800 for 1 lbs). But don’t blame us if, after all that, you can’t bring yourself to eat the mini-masterpiece.

The story behind this “couture” cake design studio goes that the owner loved to bake so much that she quit her job as an auditor to start taking cooking classes at Le Cordon Bleu. Now she puts the techniques she learned towards fashioning one-of-a-kind treats using her own recipes and ingredients she says are mainly imported from France. Here, too, things can get pretty sculptural—think cakes shaped like Louis Vuitton bags and rustic wooden style chess boards. She recommends the macarons (B360 for 9 pieces) which come in different flavors week-by-week, from salted butter popcorn to chocolate caramel and dark chocolate with ginger.

Japanese-style cakes have taken Bangkok by storm over the last few years. The owner of this homemade bakery started her training in Japan then picked up a few more techniques from Le Cordon Bleu. Fittingly, she told us that her main inspiration comes from Japan with a focus on high-quality ingredients, low sugar and light texture. She recommends the mixed fruit shortcake (B105), flourless chocolate cake (B105) and vanilla crepe cake (B115).
