I am absolutely obsessed with sweets. I’ve always had a sweet tooth since I was young and will gladly pick a slice of cake over a steak in a heartbeat.

From cookies to croissants and of course, bubble tea, I was a believer of “a sweet treat a day keeps the sadness at bay”.

While the shutters of some dessert spots remain closed, it won’t be long before circuit breaker measures are eased and our favourite treats can make a return.

But it’s not the end of the world just yet! Thankfully, some of our favourite desserts spots have recently reopened.

To tide you through this period, here are 10 dessert spots that remain open to satisfy your cravings!
