The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore
If you’re not a big fan of rich chocolate cakes, The Ritz-Carlton offers fruity log cakes with a refreshing twist. Out of the five cakes that they will be selling, we recommend the Rose & Lychee Log Cake and the Mango & Passionfruit Log Cake. The former infuses fresh raspberries in it while the latter has a tangy mango and passionfruit jelly and hazelnut biscuit. It already sounds too yummy to resist.!

We give it to Stellar at 1-Altitude for being so creative with their festive treat creation. Their Blackforest cake comes in the shape of a wreath, a prominent Christmas symbol. Although this wreath is not made of evergreens, neither can it be used to decorate your home, we are sure that it would be a tasty one.

Andaz Singapore’s PANDAN puts a spin on the traditional chiffon cake to create new flavours like bandung, durian and black sesame, and they certainly did not forget about Christmas. They will be selling a Christmas Mixed Berry flavour which includes cherry, raspberry, lingonberry, strawberry, blueberry and blackberry. Great for those who prefer tart cakes over sweet ones.

Here’s a super cute addition to our list of log cakes. It has a white chocolate mousse cake filled with strawberry gelee. If that’s not enough to get you to buy the cake, it has a hazelnut praline base that adds a nice crunch and comes in the shape of Santa’s belly too!

If anyone in the family is a unicorn fan, here’s a novel option from Pine Garden. This cake roll with vanilla sponge is sprinkled with “magic dust” and filled with the restaurant’s signature vanilla butter cream. We tried it and you’ll love the buttery taste that’s not overwhelming because the cake itself is rather light.
