What is Christmas revelry without log cakes? Bakerzin has created an assortment that will go down well at any jolly gathering. Bakerzin’s Apple Pistachio Yule Log ($70 / approx. 1kg) is one of the most impressive flavours I have tasted this year. This exquisite pistachio dacquoise features several distinct layers that give this cake a lot of texture and flavour. Starting from the bottom up, the foundation is a dacquoise made of ground almonds and pistachio followed by an apple jam with diced version of the fruit and a hint of Smirnoff Green Apple Vodka. This is then tiered with an apple and pistachio mousse before a lovely green chocolate layer encases the whole sweet treat.
For true chocoholics, Santa’s Chocolate Yule Log ($62 / approx. 1kg) is worth every sinful bite. It is a simply divine cake reminiscent of the traditional Yuletide log cake with its chocolate chiffon sponge and coats of tart blackberry jam and a luscious Valrhona chocolate mousse with hazelnut crunch. This sponge is then rolled up and covered with rich chocolate glaze and decorated with fun filled Christmas icons.

Available from now till 3 January 2016, Délifrance’s signature log cake is the Joy of Délifrance ($60 / 1kg). Touted for its velvety texture, this log cake sure puts a smile on everyone’s face. This irresistible cake is made with pillowy chocolate sponge layered with 100% Valrhona Fine French Chocolate. My favourite is the White Chocolate and Raspberry ($48 / 1kg). The sweet white chocolate sponge combined with the thick tangy raspberry coulis is a lovely crowd pleaser.
Other festive sweets include the Season’s Macarons ($16) which come in both peppermint and raspberry flavours; and the lineup of Festive Éclairs ($8) made up of chocolate, rose, vanilla and coffee flavours.

Goodwood Park Hotel has always been getting a lot of compliments from their cakes. Apart from the well-loved Goodwood D24 Durian Christmas Log Cake ($69 for 1kg) which caters to durian lovers, this year’s new Manjari Chocolate and Cassis Mousse Log Cake ($76 for 1kg) is a must-buy.
A balance of rich chocolate and fruity flavours, Manjari Chocolate and Cassis Mousse Log Cake is a wonderful medley of textures. A crunchy base of sable feuilleté lends weight to the lightly-textured dark Manjari chocolate mousse outer layer. Within lies a layer of tangy blackcurrant mousse as well as a centre of poached apples and pears wrapped within a hazelnut genoise (sponge cake) layer. The sleek contemporary lines of the log cake make it an elegant addition to the table.

Revel in the season’s good cheer with jolly surprises at Hilton Singapore, all set to conclude the year in style. Be sure to visit D9 Cakery as you will be greeted by the impressive six-metre jewellery showcase, specially created by Executive Pastry Chef Prabhu. This year, the hotel has created three jewellery inspired Yule logs: Crystal ($68/500g; $98/1kg), Diamond ($50/500g; $80/1kg), and Pearl ($50/500g; $80/1kg).
Each of these gems are represented by different flavours from a light champagne matched with sweet cranberries to a 72 percent Valrhona dark chocolate brownie with raspberry cremux and the ultimate sweet crunchy hazelnut dacquoise with white ivory chocolate and chewy nougat. We like the blue Pearl Yule most with a lovely combination of brownies and hazelnut crunch, and a touch of refreshing raspberry Chantilly.
Be enchanted by the exquisite glittery North Pole Magical Globe ($28) fitted with a miniature cottage village creation. Plough all the way through the three delicate layers with an array of textures and flavours in every bite. Kick start with the base layer of moist ladyfingers topped with crunchy apple and sweet cranberry compote, which is perfectly complemented by the bursting flavours from the eggnog mousse. All homemade Christmas delights at D9 Cakery are available from now to 26 December 2015.
