We’re only a month away from Christmas! It’s never too early to start preparing for the much needed Christmas cheer this year. Here is a list of Christmas 2020 log cakes that you can pre-order now!
Pan Pacific Singapore
Pan Pacific Singapore has not one, not two but four different distinctive log cake flavours. Try their Coco Pineapple Log Cake made with pineapple cremeux, caramelised pineapple compote, coconut base and coconut sponge. Shaped like mounds of snow, this is a great centrepiece to decorate the Christmas table with.
Alternatively, try their Mao Shan Wang and Gula Melaka Log Cake which has chopped caramelised macadamia nuts sprinkled in pure Mao Shan Wang durian mousse, fluffy pandan sponge and gula melaka cream. The two other flavours are the Matcha Hazelnut Log Cake and the Chocolate Caramel Hazelnut Log Cake with a light dulcey-whipped ganache and a generous topping of hazelnut sea salt caramel sauce.
Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium
The Chocolate Banana Log Cake has been a favourite with diners of Atrium Restaurant for years during Christmas. As a special treat for the first time, Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium is bringing it out of their restaurant to homes for all to try! Fans of citrus fruits can also try the Dulcey Yuzu log cake which is enhanced with orange marmalade and almond sponge.
This homegrown brand has different flavours of log cakes including their Mao Shan Wang Durian Ice Cream Christmas Log Cake. Made with real Mao Shan Wang durian pulp and an Italian gelato-style filling, there are also mini Christmas decorations to top it off. Other new flavours from Gin Thye this year include the Orange Peel Chocolate Brownie Christmas Log and their Lychee Martini Alcohol Christmas Log Cake.
Looking to light up the fireplace? Swensen’s Confetti Fireplace log cake has a new Christmas exclusive flavour of “Cereal ice cream”. The cake is coated in chocolate ganache and topped with chocolate ‘firewood’. There is also another option of a classic mini Sticky Chewy Chocolate ice cream log cake.
Christmas calls for log cakes and this year the team at Edith Patisserie is bringing back their ever-popular Pandan Coconut Gula Melaka flavour, featuring fluffy pandan sponge layered with salted coconut buttercream and hand-cooked gula melaka coconut filling. It is then decorated with white candy shards, gold-painted chocolate decorations and finished with buttery vanilla streusel crumbs for that glamorous looking celebration cake
