Best Christmas log cakes in Singapore

One log cake to yule them all this Christmas? That’s impossible! From traditional chocolate to fruit and spice infusions, here are the best log cakes of 2014. We dare you to stop at one slice.

1. 7th Heaven Yule Log

You can’t go wrong with good old sinful chocolate – teamed with six other individual layers of ingredients: crunchy hazelnut nougatine, chewy melted marshmallow, chocolate fudge sponge, Jivara Chocolate, Ivory Chocolate, Dark Tropical Chocolate and Bailey’s Irish Cream. This log cake from The Fullerton Hotel Singapore is a myriad of textures and is indeed, a crumbly feast for your senses! For those who shy away from desserts that are too sweet, this cake’s combination of savoury and sweet is also not too cloying on the palate.

2. Aniseed Ginger Vanilla Cheese Log Cake

Despite its unassuming appearance, this aniseed ginger vanilla cheese log cake from Pan Pacific Singapore is, well, far from vanilla. Standing out with its minimalistic snowy white chocolate-coated exterior, the cake has a smooth texture that’s broken up by subtle notes of aniseed and ginger to produce a refreshing burst of flavour. You’ll definitely want to tell guests to save room for this delectable after-dinner treat.

3. Exotic Chocolate Log

If you can’t get enough of cocoa, then this velvety concoction of KaruKera 70% chocolate mousse and caramel banana from Café Noël at Fairmont Singapore & Swissôtel The Stamford beckons. KaruKera chocolate is made from an exotic blend of beans sourced from the likes of Tanzania, Ghana, the Dominican Republic and Madagascar. The rich bitterness of the chocolate is perfectly rounded off by a bottom layer of caramel banana chunks. Did you know? This recipe originated from the La Maison Or Noir Chocolate laboratory in Meulan, France. We say, “bon appétit!”

4. Bronte Pistachio and Crunchy Praline Log Cake

Go green this Christmas! Well, technically speaking. Dolcetto by Basilico of Regent Singapore brings you a irresistible vanilla almond sponge decked with mango curd, crushed praline and lashings of chocolate pistachio mousse. The tangy mango offsets the sweetness of the mousse wonderfully! Every bite of this eye-catching, lush green dessert evokes Christmas garden parties with the family.

5. Caramel Chestnut Yule Log Cake

Covered in adorable mushroom meringues that reminded us of a magical toadstool garden, this creation from Grand Hyatt Singapore definitely scores high on the aesthetic front. The taste certainly doesn’t disappoint too – imagine the bitterness of coffee, the luxuriously fragrant undertones of brandied cherries and the decadence of chestnut sponge, caramel cream and chocolate mousse. If your choice of dessert falls somewhere between a mousse and a fudge cake, this is the sweet spot.
