Quick! Need Cake!
Eek! Christmas is almost upon us like a ton of bricks, and you’ve forgotten to get a gift for your friend who so kindly invited you to dinner next week. You can’t go empty handed, but there’s no time to hunt for gifts. No fear. Here are some gorgeous binge-worthy food gifts to pick up so you don’t make an embarrassingly empty handed entrance. Just pick up the phone, make your order and pick them up. No fuss, and no headless chicken madness this time.
Isn’t this just adorable? A classic fruit cake done in a whimsical wintry North Pole landscape with marzipan penguins. How delightful is that? It’s created by Shangri-La’s Area Executive Pastry Chef Hervé Potus who’s also got some new log cakes in unusual fruit combinations: Strawberry and Lychee; Alphonso Mango and Passion Fruit; Oreo Cheese Log Cake with Forest Berries and even the Super Mao Shan Wang Yule Log Cake for a tropical injection.

Grand Hyatt Singapore
Always pretty and hands-down reliable, the cakes at the Grand Hyatt never fails to impress. If you just want a guaranteed-to-impress product, here’s where you’ll get it. I bought a beautiful fig tart there 8 years ago for a Christmas party and the hostess I gave it to still talks about it. What I like here this time is the classic fruit cake. Elegant and simple….and sometimes you just want something really great but straightforward – always nice with a shot of warming brandy. Feel the love yet?
