3. Bandung White Chocolate Raspberry
A highlight of Parkroyal on Pickering’s LIME Christmas buffet is their log cakes. Incorporated with local flavours, the buffet offers a wide selection of log cakes including Pandan Coconut Yule Log, Bandung and White Chocolate Raspberry, and Durian Gula Melaka. Although pricey, the buffet is massive so make sure to save some space for dessert. But then again, most of us have a second stomach just for desserts right?

4. Lychee Champagne Tiramisu
via Cedele Market
The combination of fruit, alcohol, and coffee sounds almost too daunting but the flavours go well together. Coated with a subtle champagne mascarpone frosting, the moist almond log cake has a distinct lychee core. This burst of flavours is sure to be a crowd pleaser and it’s no wonder that it’s already sold out on Cedele’s site.

5. William Pear
via Miss Tam Chiak
Deviate from the usual thick creamy flavours and try the William Pear log cake instead. Filled with fresh, juicy William pear chunks encased in a smooth, tangy mousse, your guests won’t be able to leave without getting a second helping. William pears are known for their tenderness and its sweetness balances the log cake’s citrus taste. You won’t have to worry about the log cake getting gelat (overwhelming) either!
Where: Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium
Price: $78 (1kg)
