Christmas is just round the corner and everyone is scrambling for turkey and log cakes. But what if we told you that you don’t necessarily need to get a log cake? After all, there are many other cake options available.
We’ve compiled a list of the best cakes for you this festive season that actually taste as good as they look.
Cake For Days
1. Black Forest Cake By Awfully Chocolate
Awfully Chocolate is doing something different this year. It may be a log cake, but it’s technically more of a stump cake.
It looks like a stump. That’s what we’re saying. I mean, look at it.
The Christmas Black Forest Cake ($98) uses Awfully Chocolate’s signature dark chocolate cake, with 2 layers of sweet pitted cherries laced with Kirsch, dark chocolate fudge, tangy sour cherry compote, Kirsch cream, and chocolate glaze icing.
If this sinful, decadent cake doesn’t appeal to you, we don’t know what will. Order yours on the Awfully Chocolate website now!
2. Christmas Berry Pandan Cake By Andaz Singapore
Andaz Singapore may be relatively new, but they never cease to impress. This Christmas, the Pandan cake shop at Andaz Singapore has come up with a Christmas Berry Pandan Cake ($32).
Pandan chiffon sponge is covered in a glossy berry glaze that is made with 6 different types of berries (cherry, strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry and lingonberry).
It almost looks too pretty to eat. Almost. The berry glaze is surprisingly mild and not overly sweet and complements the pandan flavour of the sponge cake.
Get yours from Pandan at Andaz Singapore before they run out.

Choose from Vanilla Buttercream, Chocolate Fudge, or Chocolate Cherry Red Velvet.

4. Dadar Logcake By Sinpopo Brand
You’ve heard of, seen, or eaten Kueh Dadar. Now prepare yourselves for Sinpopo Brand‘s take on the classic Kueh Dadar.
A Dadar Log Cake ($48). That’s right.
As weird as that sounds, Sinpopo Brand has managed to meld the flavours of Kueh Dadar into a log cake.
It may look like a normal log cake, but wait there’s more.
Grated coconut that has been soaked in gula melaka, is slathered generously and rolled up in a soft Pandan swiss roll before being covered in a layer of white coconut cream.
This is a must-try. Order it at least 3 days in advance.
You can thank us later.

5. Black Velvet Cake By Classic Cakes
Classic Cakes is a gem of a cake shop that’s hidden in Sunset Way, Clementi.
True to its name, this unpretentious cake shop serves up classic cakes with traditional flavours such as Black Forest Cake, Radish Cake, Yam Cake, as well as the Best Ever Chocolate Cake.
However, our favourite is the Black Velvet Cake ($45). A rich chocolate cake topped with creamy mascarpone cheese. It’s a simple combination that is unbelievably delicious.
Trust us. One slice is not enough. Get the whole cake, it’ll be worth it.
If you’re planning to order the whole cake, do it at least 3 days in advance.
Address: 41 Sunset Way, #01-06 Clementi Arcade, Singapore, 597071
Opening Hours: Wed – Sat: 11am – 9pm, Sun: 2pm – 7pm, Tue: 2pm – 9pm, Mon: Closed

6. Jolly Horly Cheesecake By Cat & The Fiddle
If you’re wondering what “Horly” is, don’t worry. We were initially puzzled as well. Turns out, Horly is a play on the words “Holly” and “Horlicks”.
That’s right. Jolly Horly ($38.90) is a Horlicks cheesecake.
Horlicks is mixed with cream cheese and sweetened with condensed milk before it is poured on a biscuit base. If you’re a fan of Horlicks like us, then this is the perfect cake to get this Christmas.
Order your Jolly Horly cheesecake from here!
