By Maureen, Mu Qin, Wan Ping & Cheryl
Growing up, I love to celebrate Christmas because it’s the time for get-together and gorge ourselves silly with turkeys and log cakes of all colours and flavours. If you are still looking at which log cake to buy this Christmas, we bring you 27 interesting log cakes this season.
Be spoiled for choice with Carlton Hotel’s variety of Christmas goodies! The Flame Valentino Log Cake ($63) has been a hot seller recently, with its appealing seductive charms. Inspired by the heavenly Red Velvet Cake from Tuxedo Café & Patisserie, the luscious red velvet sponge cake is layered with smooth cream cheese filling and sour cream. Carlton Hotel has added a splash of exotic lemon zest in the frosting, which screams a zesty and citrus flavour. Trust me, this will be another party in your mouth at your Christmas party.
Introducing this year’s new star, the Chocolate Lychee Log Cake ($63), this is another gem not to be missed. The lychee flesh and tiny chocolate balls created some extra textures with every bite. Surprise your guests with this uncommon pairing of flavours and they will be coming back for more.

Our favourites are the carrot cake which is topped with cream cheese, as well as, mango mousse, made of almond sponge, layered with mango mousse and fresh mangoes and topped with mango jelly and a fresh raspberry which is a very refreshing treat.
