From Goodwood Park Hotel

Those dreaming of a white Christmas will enjoy this elegant creation from Goodwood Park Hotel. Dressed in snowy white, slice into layers of pistachio sponge and pear mousse, studded with juicy bits of poached pear. Shimmering white chocolate baubles completes the dessert. Beyond the traditional log-shaped treat, there is also a festive mousse cake ($78) fashioned to resemble a vibrant wreath, dressed in shades of red and white and flavoured with raspberry jam, lychee-whipped white chocolate ganache, and apple mousse.

From Pine Garden 

Instead of the usual rum and raisin combination, homegrown bakery Pine Garden adopts a lighter, but equally boozy path, to create a log cake infused with fruity flavours. Within folds of sour plum sponge cake lies cubes of umeshu jello, and the cake even comes served with a smog shot of the liqueur to finish. For kid-friendly options, the oolong cheese macchiato ($63) transforms your usual bubble tea order into a sweet, sliceable dessert.

The Fullerton Hotel Singapore presents a trio of new log cake varieties this year. Earthy matcha is worked into fluffy sponge cake, then layered with smooth vanilla praline and yuzu creme for a sweet, tangy surprise; or try the mango medley bursting with tropical aroma, where mango passion creme is paired with almond jaconde, toffee pineapple, and citrus crisp. Fall flavours are exemplified in the vanilla Mont Blanc, comprising of vanilla chantilly creme and candied Sabaton chestnut.
