From Goodwood Park Hotel
The classic croquembouche gets a festive makeover with choux pastry profiteroles generously piped with whiskey custard and stacked up to mimic the look of Christmas tree. And instead of baubles and fairy lights, it’s decorated with caramelised pistachios and icing ‘snowflakes’.
Available from December 1 to 26, advance order of three working days required.
From Regent Singapore
Swap out the traditional chocolate yule log for this adorable candy cane one instead. The raspberry and Bronte pistachio cake is a rich mix of chocolate, almonds, the best pistachios from Bronte and a tart raspberry glaze to tie everything together.
Available from December 1 to January 1, advance order of three working days required.
From Sunday Folks
Slice into layers of Valrhona Azelia milk chocolate and hazelnut mousse that contains bite-sized pieces of spiced Granny Smith apples. The not-too-sweet cake is then covered with a 55 percent chocolate glaze, sprinkled with gold dust and decorated with red currants and white chocolate to add that festive cheer.
Available from November 11 to January 31, advance order of three working days required.
From The Ritz-Carlton's The Bakery in Colony
Inspired by logs tossed into the fireplace to keep families warm during the winter, the ‘Warmth’ log cake will also leave you feeling comforted from the first bite. Made from almond sponge, Grand Marnier and praline cream this delicate cake is light and not too sweet.
Available from November 26 to January 1, advance order of three working days required.

From The Fullerton Hotel

Available from November 1 to December 25, advance order of three working days required.
For a cake the kids will love, opt for Häagen-Dazs’ Christmas Tree Cake. Covered in spikey meringues, the cake is filled with a mixture of classic vanilla ice cream and the new dark chocolate and almonds flavour.

From The Patissier
The Patissier’s Rudolphski makes its return this Christmas in form of a traditional Russian honey cake. Sitting on a sweet dough base are layers of honey sponge, caramel sour cream and buttercream frosting, with caramel biscuits tucked in-between for bite. It’s all finished off with a roasted honey almond crust – and, cloying as it sounds, this festive cake’s light enough for you to help yourself to seconds.
Available from Nov 15 to Dec 31.
