But when was the last time you saw a log cake that wasn’t either chocolate or expresso flavoured? Enter Fullerton Hotel’s magnificent Ondeh Ondeh Yule Log Cake, covered in a soft blanket of shredded coconut. Bite into it and you’ll taste Gula Melaka mousse and coconut crème all wrapped in a layer of the finest chiffon cake. We’re sure your guests won’t forget this log cake in a hurry.

Gingerbread Tower

One of the most adorable Christmas treats of all time is the Gingerbread cookie. You’ll find variants of people-shaped cookies and cosy houses for sale when the malls start playing Christmas music. But have you ever seen a whole tower made of Gingerbread cookies? Pulse Patisserie has whipped up a 37 cm tall, 23 wide tower made entirely out of Gingerbread cookies and swirly meringue. To my knowledge, no one has attempted to make a Gingerbread HDB flat yet, so this is the closest we’ve gotten – for now.

Price: $78.80 for approximately 44 pieces
