Best Christmas log cakes in Singapore for 2021
1. Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel
Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel brings a trio of new desserts to the table. There’s the chic champagne rose cheesecake log cake and the pear belle helene yule log cake that takes a cue from the classic French dessert. But we’ve got our eyes set on the strawberry vanilla yoghurt igloo. It features stars, a snowman and, of course, an igloo that’s too pretty to eat. For those who prefer something more traditional, the signature chocolate fudge log cake returns in all its decadent glory.

2. Pan Pacific Singapore
Want to make a statement at the dinner table? The pastry team at Pan Pacific Singapore presents four new log cakes that are centrepiece-worthy. For a pop of colour, there’s the strawberry lemon log cake ($78). Boasting a stunning hue of red, the cake offers a flavour combo of Valrhona strawberry chocolate mousse, strawberry compote and lemon curd.
Alternatively, indulge in rich chocolate flavours with the sea salt caramel chocolate tart ($82). White clouds of piped chocolate atop an encased chocolate tart envelop layers of chocolate sponge paired with savoury caramel. Other options include vanilla mango passion log cake ($80) and hazelnut praline and yuzu gateaux ($82). The former packs a citrusy punch while the latter comprises crunchy feuilletine base, yuzu cremeux and hazelnut jivara milk chocolate mousse.

3. Café&Meal MUJI
Muji enters the log cake fray with three sweet creations. First, we’ve got the yuzu banana log cake. The banana sponge gets an aromatic layer of yuzu mousse with a topping of caramelised fresh bananas and a sprinkle of osmanthus flowers. Next, there’s the sweet purple potato and chestnut log cake. It’s essentially a Swiss roll but with a touch of Asian flavours. For something truly special, the matcha pear roll log cake fits the bill. This bittersweet match is complemented by the smooth vanilla pear cream. Just take note that orders should be placed three days in advance.

Durian lovers, if you’re on the hunt for the King of Fruits, look no further. Parkroyal Collection Pickering has rolled out the Rainbow Durian.

Or mix and match with the log cake bundle where you can add other flavours to the mix like blackforest, strawberry shortcake and chocolate passion fruit.
