It’s that time of the year where we begin our preparations for the most eagerly anticipated holiday of the year — Christmas. When we think of Christmas treats, one delightful confection that inevitably comes to mind is the beloved log cake. This holiday season, let’s venture beyond the familiar and discover a world of unique log cake flavours that will make your celebrations even more memorable.

Here are six log cakes with the most unique flavours and designs to get this Christmas.

Savour the creativity of InterContinental’s log cakes, expertly made by  Executive Pastry Chef Jason Goh.

The Grandeur Blue Yule Log ($108) surprises us with a whole new look and flavour profile from traditional log cakes. A bright blue house, built with layers of coconut mousse, exotic mango-passion cremeux, attap seed, and pandan genoise. Meanwhile, for a closer taste to tradition, the Chocolate Hojicha Yule Log offers a sophisticated flavour experience for chocolate lovers. It has a delicious blend of chocolate sponge, hojicha ganache, bitter chocolate mousse, and a crunchy chocolate coating. This is available in both 500g and 1kg sizes, from $54.

Finally, for those looking for a tasteful blend of flavours, the 1kg Winter Berries and Vanilla Yule Log ($108) is another option with combination of almond financier, berry marmalade, ivory white chocolate mousse, feuilletine, and Madagascar vanilla. 

The log cakes will be available for purchase online or their Festival Shoppe in The Lobby Lounge from 1 November to 22 December 2023, with the collection period from 20 November to 25 December 2023.

While the log cake from Dao by Dorsett AMTD Singapore is as classic as classic log cakes get, its perfection deserves a special mention in our guide.

The Enchanted Forest Log Cake ($56) by Dao by Dorsett is bound to take your taste buds on a fantastical adventure. The flavourful combination of chocolate buttercream and perfectly whipped Valrhona Araguani chocolate cream is evident in every bite of this log cake. The secret lies in Valrhona Dark Chocolate Crunchy Pearls, which offer a great texture contrast, adding enchantment to your palate. 

It truly is the epitome of perfection — striking a perfect balance, offering richness without being overly decadent. The flavour profile harmoniously combines sweetness with a subtle astringent note, creating a taste that lingers on your palate. Going beyond flavours is the layering of textures, adding depth and complexity to every bite.
