As much as we adore turkeys and savoury fare during Christmas, sometimes all we crave for is a variety of sugary sweet, diet-busting log cakes. Available in a plethora of flavours including chocolate, chestnut, sea salt caramel and even calamansi, these scrumptious confections are often prettily presented with festive decorations that instantly put you into a celebratory mood.
While the Yuletide season also offers other sweet treats such as panettone and trifle, we find these aren’t as indulgent as log cakes, which are usually packed with cream and — sometimes — a hint of booze. And since we’re already loading up on calories and sugar, we might as well go all the way with a rich and decadent confection.
With so many options out there, it may be tough to choose which cake (or cakes) to order for your upcoming Christmas gathering. So we’ve put together a list of 6 delicious log cakes that are worth trying.
