Wherever you are in the world, there’s likely a dessert that you’ve grown up with and can’t quite imagine special occasions like birthdays or New Year’s without them. Desserts or sweet treats seem to be a universal food item that’s present at any celebratory event. In Singapore, depending on what culture you’re from, you’re likely familiar with kueh lapis, dodol, gulab jamun or sugee cake during the respective celebrations. In Korea, tteok (rice cake) is a favourite during weddings and birthdays. In Germany, lebkuchen is a Christmas sweet treat that’s chewy and filled with spices. And in the Philippines, there’s bibingka, a rice cake enjoyed during the holiday season.
But desserts and sweet treats don’t have to be reserved just for yearly occasions. The everyday victories deserve a ‘treat yourself’ moment too. If you’re craving something sweet after a hard day’s work or celebrating a friend’s good news and need a congratulatory cake, GrabFood’s dessert delivery has you covered.
