The great thing about dessert is that you always have room for it. Whether it’s a slice of ever-trendy Basque burnt cheesecake, or a pint of the good stuff while lounging on your sofa, the only real problem with dessert is making sure you aren’t getting too much of it. Some days though, dessert isn’t just about satisfying a craving: it could be as complicated and as drawn out as you’d like, and all the better for it.

Enter dessert bars. The chefs and artisans at some of Singapore’s best dessert bars take your classic comforting dessert items and put their unique spin on it. Think saccharine treats scooped, spun and plated before your very eyes, with all sorts of culinary gadgetry. Sure, caramel spirals and lattices aren’t really that complicated to make, but showmanship counts for something (not to mention a killer photo).

At some of these places, you’d even get to hear the chef’s thought process behind his mercurial desserts – which after all, is part of the fun. It does mean you’d have to set aside a generous chunk of time while patronising one of these bars, but trust us: it’ll be one of the best dessert experiences you can get in sunny Singapore.
