Our Story

Lana Cakes


Mrs Violet Kwan, 92, started baking the beloved chocolate fudge cakes in 1964. Her sister-in-law Lani, who was in Singapore on a visit from Hawaii where she lived, baked and gave her friends delightful chiffon cakes which she had learned while working in a bakery. Her friends loved the cakes and Lani taught Mrs Kwan to bake the cakes so that her friends could order them after she returned to Hawaii.

Mrs Kwan continued to bake from her home in Hillcrest Park and the cake shop was subsequently set up in 1975 in it’s current location at Greenwood Avenue. Lana Cake Shop was named after Lani.

Mrs Kwan initially baked three flavours: the orange chiffon cake, blueberry cake and chocolate fudge cake. Over the years she expanded the range to some 12 flavours which include the pineapple, mocha, date, coconut and carrot cake. The chocolate fudge has become the Lana signature and the most popular of all.

Today, Lana Cakes remains a family-owned and operated business. It is committed to quality and taste only the home-baked cakes can bring to its customers. Mrs Kwan’s legacy is carried on by her son (Jason) and her legendary cakes will live on for many Singaporeans who love them.

Mrs Violet Kwan is frequently at Lana Cakes to greet her customers.
