Who has the Best DIY Yule Log?
Christmas is my favourite festival of the year. Perhaps it’s because of the year end sales, perhaps it’s because of the Christmas deco in Orchard Road which gives me a happy feeling, perhaps it’s because of the joy of welcoming a new year, perhaps it’s because I get to see snow (if I travel), perhaps it’s because I get to eat alot of turkey and log cakes, perhaps it’s all of the above reasons!
December is coming and in about a month’s time, we are celebrating Christmas! It’s a time when everything looks whiter, prettier, and exudes more decadence. Every year, The Icing Room will have a Design-It-Yourself Yule Logs for anyone who wants to create a unique log cake! I did it 2 years ago and thanks to The Icing Room, I am doing it again this year!
The mini yule log comes in two different flavours – strawberry or chocolate. The strawberry cake will have a pretty pink cream while the chocolate cake will be wrapped with white cream. I took the chocolate one because my family loves chocolate!
Each DIY set includes a mini log, 5 piping cream and 2 Christmas icing décor for you to DIY a log of your own. Additional festive-themed décor are sold separately.
Since this is a chocolate log cake, I grabbed the cocoa powder and mini oreo which I used for baking to decorate my log cake.
The Christmas candies from NTUC are so cute! So I bought them to decorate the cake too. Creating one small cake needs brainstorming also ok, I wanted to do a Golden Log which coincides with the red & gold decor in Orchard Road this year.
Hence, I also grabbed physalis and strawberries from NTUC. Initially, I wanted to design it with the fruits, but in the end, I felt strawberries were too big for my mini log, so I only used physalis. And I also brought some gold balls from home to decorate my cake!
TA-DEH! My end product! My Golden Log pretty anot? I sticked some mini oreo to the sides and sprinkled some icing sugar to let it have the snowing feel!
And just nice, this year their box is gold too!
