It’s that time of the year again where Muslims around the world celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri following a month of fasting. Celebrations this year, however, will be different because Hari Raya falls on Sunday, 24 May 2020, which is still within the Circuit Breaker period. Despite not being able to celebrate this joyous occasion as a whole, many are still finding ways to keep the festivities and cheerful spirits alive by making do with what they have at home. Essentially, this also includes having some of their favourite traditional kuehs and cakes for the occasion.
In this roundup, we’ve gathered a mix of home businesses and commercial bakeries that you can get your favourite Hari Raya cookies and other treats for the month of celebration.
When it comes to satisfying your sweet tooth cravings, you can bet that Kreyv has got your fix sorted. Otherwise known for their Crunchy Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies (that usually flies off the shelves), Kreyv also offers a wide selection of tasty traditional treats such as Nutella Tarts and the ever-so-popular Honey Cornflakes — a must-have for every Hari Raya celebration. They also offer other interpretations of the Cornflakes treat which includes the Milk Chocolate Cornflakes and their Crispy Cornflakes with Cranberries.
2. RAINBOW LAPIS SG
It’s clear that many of us are fond of pineapple tarts and adding them to our list of traditional kuehs to our tables for Hari Raya is a definite must. With years of experience in making individually handcrafted Nonya Kuehs, Rainbow Lapis SG is bringing back old, classic favourites to your homes just like this box of Rainbow Lapis Flower Pineapple Tarts. Aside from these bite-sized treats, they also offer a myriad of Nonya Kuehs just like their Ondeh Ondeh or their Nonya Kueh Platter that are all perfect for sharing.

3. HIPSTER BAKES
Hipster Bakes has made a name for itself for its traditional treats that are baked with the finest ingredients. Though they are well-known for their handcrafted cakes, the homegrown brand also offers Raya Cookies that have been a hit amongst many. Currently most of their traditional cookies have ran out of stock but some of them are still available on Shopee — take, for instance, their Shiok Peanut Cookies. For those of you who love peanuts, this one’s perfect for you.
You’re down to the last few days before the Hari Raya celebrations begin but you have little to no treats stocked up at home — which might spell panic for you. But fret not. Thankfully, for Breadwerks, you’ll still be able to get your Hari Raya cookies and cakes delivered to your doorstep. Besides ordering from their site, you will also be able to order from GrabFood where you can choose from their popular Tapak Kuda Nutella flavoured cakes, to Almond Cookies and their unique tarts.

When it comes to treats, it doesn’t always have to be about cookies. In this case, if you’re looking for a sweet alternative, consider this Bread & Butter Pudding by All Things Delicious To Go. A warm and sweet dessert that melts in your mouth, complimented by their vanilla bean sauce, this plate of goodness is sure to have your family members asking for second servings. Aside from this pudding, they also offer other desserts such as brownies and cheesecakes for you and your family to indulge in this Hari Raya.
