For seven weekends starting from tomorrow to Aug 26, dessert fanatics will find themselves spoilt for choice at the Marina Square Cake Club, a dessert pop-up.

Taking place at the Marina Square Glasshouse on Saturdays and Sundays, the pop-up will showcase Singapore's dessert industry with a rotating line-up of activities that promises to offer something for everyone.

The highlight is the Cake Bar, a retail concept that will feature 11 of the best bakeries and cake shops in Singapore.

Bloomsbury Bakers, inthebrickyard and Milk Moons will be there this month.

Look out for the Orh Nee Cake by Bloomsbury Bakers, which specialises in flavours inspired by local desserts, and the Salted Caramel Cake by Milk Moons, which is run by siblings Bryan and Dawn Koh, who also co-founded cake company Chalk Farm.

Next month, Boufe Boutique Cafe, Creme Maison and Edith Patisserie will come to the fore.

Freshly brewed signature flavours from the 1872 Clipper Tea Co will also be available at the pop-up.

Visitors can also taste some innovative offerings, such as pink waffles from Lickety Ice Cream & Waffles and White Chrysanthemum Gelato from local gelato brand Birds of Paradise.

They can also sign up to participate in one of four dessert workshops. Budding bakers can learn how to pipe delicate flowers or succulents on cupcakes in a two-hour workshop by Yume Patisserie, or try their hand at cookie painting by Once Upon A Table and cake-pop design by Nanatang.

The two-hour workshops will take place between 2 and 4pm starting from July 29. Prices vary.
