Best Log Cakes and Festive Treats for All Your Christmas Pot-Luck Gatherings

A collection of the best log cakes this Christmas

It’s the most magical time of the year where life seems to slow down a little for us to catch our breath and savour the months gone by. We make our Christmas shopping lists (and check them twice!) as we set aside time to spend with our friends and family.

If you are attending a pot-luck gathering, have you thought about what to get? There’ll be the usual hams and roast, pasta or perhaps the regular mains in most Singaporean gatherings – chicken curry and bee hoon, or even steamboat – so what should you get? How about something sweet to round up the evening?

Here’s a collection of really good-looking logcakes (that will be just as delicious too!) and other festive treats perfect for your Christmas pot-luck gathering!

1. Café Mocha, Marina Mandarin Singapore

If you prefer something lighter, the Manjari Raspberry Rose Lychee Bûche (S$65/1kg) will be a good option. With just the right balance between the light chocolate mousse and a layer of raspberry rose lychee jelly and almond joconde, this will be a refreshing treat after an evening of feasting.
