Best Christmas log cakes in Singapore
Goodwood Park Hotel
In conjunction with its 120th birthday, Goodwood Park Hotel is pulling out all the stops this Christmas. Its log cakes are way too gorgeous to eat! The Ivory Christmas Celebration Log Cake is essentially a napoleon cake blanketed in Valrhona ivory chocolate mousse. But can we take a moment to appreciate the intricate silhouette details of Christmas trees, snowflakes and the iconic Grand Tower wing of the hotel? If you want something more rustic on your dining table, there’s also the black forest log cake, which comes in the shape of a quaint holiday cabin – think milk chocolate walls, sponge finger roof and chantilly snow.

The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore
Get ready for the ultimate indulgence: Champagne chocolate log cake. The real treasure lies inside. Cut through the gold-dusted celestial chocolate shell and you’ll be treated to a champagne jelly core with a trio of dark, milk and white chocolate sponge. Each has a filling of orange chocolate, strawberry and lychee ganache. Diet, what?

Celebrate the festive season by indulging in a delicious log cake. Looking for something different from the usual chocolate flavours? Cafe&Meal Muji has a refreshing caramel apple log cake ($45), complete with a matcha cristal glaze, garnished with fresh apples and crunchy almond praline. There’s also the tangy strawberry fraisier log cake ($45) with decadent layers of mascarpone cream, strawberry jelly and vanilla sponge cake, topped with fresh strawberries. If you’re giving log cakes a miss, we recommend the coffee burnt cheesecake for an indulgent and aromatic dessert.

The Fullerton Hotel Singapore
The Fullerton Hotel and The Fullerton Bay Hotel are both taking the traditional route this festive season. These log cakes are replete with local flavours such as mango sago pomelo, teh tarik and coconut calamansi. We’ve got our eye on the ondeh ondeh creation! It sees gula melaka mousse and coconut creme layered between pandan chiffon sponge cake.

Shangri-La Hotel Singapore
Shangri-La has slung out two new festive creations: Mango passion toffee log cake and cajette de fraises. The former is pretty self-explanatory. Meanwhile, the French-named latter comprises vanilla sponge cake layered with honey yoghurt mousse, strawberry confit and fresh strawberries. In addition, it sports the shape of a crate filled with said fruit.

Pan Pacific Singapore
Pan Pacific has rolled out four festive log cakes and our eyes are on the ‘gram-worthy matcha hazelnut. The Christmas wreath-shaped dessert boasts a crunchy feuilletine base, rich matcha mousse and hazelnut sponge. For chocolate connoisseurs, indulge in the chocolate caramel hazelnut log cake, which presents beautiful icing artistry reminiscent of a Japanese zen garden. In case you’re wondering, the topping is made of hazelnut sea salt caramel sauce. Yum!

Parkroyal on Kitchener Road
As the saying goes, don’t judge a book by its cover. This charming yule log is a green and red velvet cake. Yes, you read that right. Taking its cue from Christmas colours, it’s filled with luscious cream cheese alongside brandied fruits sandwiched between green and red layers on the inside.

Cat and the Fiddle
Known for its delectable cheesecakes, Cat and the Fiddle is ringing in the festive season with a log cake called Fantasy in the Woods. Made with a rich dark chocolate cream cheese and raspberry mousse, this sponge cake will take your palate off the beaten track. Psst: If you didn’t know, all the cakes here are halal-certified.
Cat and the Fiddle, multiple locations including Clarke Quay Central and Junction 8
This hotel has whipped up three artisanal yule logs using popular flavours like dark chocolate and matcha. For instance, the dark chocolate sponge with Valrhona 50% dark oriado chocolate ganache is infused with applewood smoked caramel. Or try the matcha-infused sponge layered with homemade roasted chestnut and matcha cream. But if you’re a classicist at heart, you can’t go wrong with the cheesecake variation.

ParkRoyal Collection Pickering
The popular Lime Restaurant churns out festive cakes in four delightful flavours – strawberry chiffon, chocolate passionfruit, rainbow durian and black forest yule log (with booze). We tried the chocolate passionfruit and particularly liked how the rich chocolate perfectly balanced the tangy passionfruit.
