With the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) in effect in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor once again, small local businesses need our support more than ever

We know there are thousands of small local businesses online that we can support by ordering takeaways and food deliveries from, but here's a simple list to start you on your search for the next time you crave freshly-baked homemade cakes.

Here are some of our favourite home bakers and their amazing cakes:

1. Everyday Bakes

If you're looking to have a cheat day without feeling guilty about it, consider Everyday Bakes for their healthier cakes that are low in sugar and fat.

Their signature bakes include their chiffon cakes, brownies, and fruit tarts, which are all beautifully loaded with unprocessed, whole fresh fruit.

They are constantly coming up with new flavours, so don't be shy to request for their gluten-free, vegan, or diabetic-friendly options!

To order, check out their Instagram for more info.

2. The Flour Baby

The Flour Baby specialises in super indulgent dark chocolate brownies and browned butter blondies. And they believe in letting the simplicity of using premium ingredients speak for themselves.

Not overly sweet but definitely very fudgy, the brownies are sinful on their own as a teatime snack, but you can add on a scoop of ice-cream for the best late-night treat ever.

If you can't decide between either brownies or blondies, they also let you get both flavours in a single tray.

To order, check out their Instagram for more info.

3. Inez Bakes

Inez Bakes creates all kinds of sweet bites from cakes and cupcakes to cookies and brownies. Their lemon blueberry Bundt cake sounds downright delicious, but we think their yummy cupcakes would definitely pique your interest.

They have an amazing selection of flavours, but the best-selling ones are the Nutella red velvet (which a colleague has sworn by), raspberry vanilla, pandan gula Melaka, and salted caramel chocolate.

4. Bake N' Hustle

Homemade goodies just hit differently and you can tell that a slice of Bake N' Hustle's classic banana cakes will be the most comforting afternoon snack ever, paired with a hot cup of coffee or tea.

They sell their banana cakes plain or with walnuts and chocolate chips. But you can also get their soft walnut chocolate chip cookies if you're feeling especially peckish.

They deliver only on the weekends but all orders are baked on the day of delivery so that everyone gets to enjoy it fresh!

5. Eat The Rainbow

Eat The Rainbow specialises in making beautiful rainbow-hued cakes made with no artificial colouring or preservatives.

Their colourful repertoire includes a beautiful blackberry mouse cheesecake and mini snowskin mooncakes that are made all year round with flavours according to the season.

However, their usual menu includes mocha, pu er tea, pandan, white coffee, white lotus, and red bean.

6. Sid's Brownies

If you are having a bad day, brownies are always definitely the way to go. Sid's Brownies makes scrumptious chocolate brownies topped with drizzles of your liking. And you will be spoilt for choice.

Choose anything from salted caramel, Nutella, salted egg yolk, peanut butter, and more to drizzle on top of the brownies, or you could just opt for a little sprinkle of sea salt for the simplest pleasure.

To order, check out their Instagram for more info.

7. Whisked With Love

Whisked With Love whips up an impressive array of concoctions, from matcha burnt cheesecakes and yoghurt fruit cakes to tiramisu and durian-filled chiffon cakes, and that is not even half of their menu.

They are constantly creating new flavours and each of those cakes look so good to eat, we don't think you should wait for a special occasion to try some of them.

To order, check out their Facebook for more info.

8. Sinyeebakes

Sin Yee Bakes makes the most picture-perfect chiffon cakes that her customers have described as absolutely light, soft, and fluffy.

Topped with a beautiful layer of icing, they come in four flavours which are earl grey, pandan gula Melaka, orange, or lemon yoghurt, which all go really well with a nice warm cuppa.

To order, check out their Instagram for more info.

9. The Boy Who Bakes

If you feel like eating Basque burnt cheesecakes, look for The Boy Who Bakes who has completely mastered the beautiful burnt, caramelised exterior while maintaining a creamy centre.

They also make matcha-flavoured burnt cheesecakes and also sells them in slices if you are craving just for that little bit of goodness without all the guilt.
