Burning a Yule Log, known as the “Bûche de Noël”, is a Christmas tradition that dates back to the 19th century in France. Families would burn the special log starting on Christmas eve. The burning symbolises the new year to come and welcomes good luck to the family. Today, the log is presented as a delicious log-shaped sponge cake in an assortment of flavours.
We’ve scoured Singapore for these mouthwatering confections, because really, we all deserve a treat for making it through this difficult year.
Confetti Fireplace Cake
This is made with Cereal ice cream, a new and Christmas exclusive flavour. This celebratory cake is coated in chocolate ganache and topped with chocolate ‘firewood’. If you’d like to try the ice cream on its own, Cereal Ice Cream as well as another Christmas special, Dark Chocolate Peppermint Ice Cream, are available in takeaway pints. Also, consider the other Chtistmas specia, the Sticky Chewy Log.
Ivory Christmas Celebration Log Cake
Goodwood Park Hotel
As part of its 120-year anniversary, Goodwood Park Hotel has introduced this Christmas special which is embellished with gold flakes and chocolate pastillas snowflakes.
A Napoleon cake with roasted macadamia nuts and lemon crémeux is blanketed in creamy Valrhona ivory chocolate mousse. The white chocolate sheets are hand-trimmed to form Goodwood Park Hotel’s Grand Tower wing.
Raspberry Chocolate Logcake – Fantasy In The Woods
Cat & the Fiddle
Resembling the timeless classic but with a twist, this roulade (rolled pastry) creation is made with velvety chocolate cheese that is filled with hazelnut crisps and a tart raspberry mousse centre. It’s a log cheesecake, but wrapped in almond sponge.
