Lychee yule log

Opting to take the culinary path less travelled, the pastry chefs over at Sheraton Towers Singapore pay homage to the humble lychee, a familiar Asian fruit, by combining it with the earthy flavours of chestnut. Touches of white chocolate grace this artful log cake.

Chocolate yule log with gold flakes

Trust the chefs over at the St. Regis to dust their sweet treats with nothing less than gold flakes. After all, if anyone knows how to draw out the superlatives, it's them.

'Rescue Santa' chocolate dome

Here's one to get the little ones excited. Imagine a delicate chocolate globe before you. Pick up a chocolate hammer and hack at the chocolate shell to reveal a scene of Santa in the snow — surrounded by light mascarpone cream, apricot filling, and cinnamon crumble. Probably the only time it's acceptable to play with your food.  

Available from InterContinental Singapore from now to 25 December 2016. 

Gingerbread house

When Hansel and Gretel nibbled at the gingerbread house, it probably looked a lot like this whimsical creation by the chefs at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. Think curls of marshmallow, icing thatches made to resemble sheets of snow, and candy cane adding to the riot of colours. 

Available at The Fullerton Cake Boutique from now to 25 December 2016. 


Candied chestnut log cake
