Christmas is just one week away, and I am sure everyone is already in a holiday mood. To me, Christmas is about giving and sharing, it is the time to connect with your family and loved ones. And of course, it will never be the same without a Christmas log cake.
From the traditional chocolate Yule log cake, to innovative creations such as a Gula Melaka log cake and a Mont Blanc rendition, we’ve rounded up a list of Christmas Log Cakes in Singapore that you must try.
‘Tis the season to eat log cakes.
If you are looking for something different, go for Canele’s Dawn Log Cake ($38 for 500g, $68 for 1kg) – a classic Mont Blanc infused with orange marmalade, caramelised meringue, chestnut cream and mascarpone rum mousse.

For a rich, chocolate-y Christmas log cake, I’d recommend Bakerzin’s Christmas Dream ($48 for 1kg), a wonderful combination of Amer sponge cake and brandy granche.
Besides that, Bakerzin also has two other log cakes – the Fruity Joy ($52 for 1kg), a refreshing pairing of apricot and mango with a luxurious milk chocolate mousse; and Midnight Delight ($56 for 1kg), a pretty rendition with white chocolate mousse and dark chocolate.
