Christmas Logcakes by Emicakes

December 9, 2014


It’s a little early in the month to be celebrating Christmas. But it was the only day we could gather everyone in the family together! And I do mean everyone! All it took was a few years, some plane flights back to Singapore, and good timing, for the family is finally whole again! πŸ˜€

A special touch of Christmas was added to the festive cheer with logcakes from the Yuletide of Colours collection by Emicakes!

Yuletide Brilliance (Limited Edition, Mao Shan Wang!)

The moment I saw the flavours for the logcakes, I knew immediately that Yuletide Brilliance will be the best choice for the family!

Firstly, it’s not just any durian. It’s MAO SHAN WANG! This is by far my favourite of favourites durian type! I don’t know how and why, but it’s absolutely delicious! If you’re a serious durian lover, go for this! You won’t be disappointed, just like it didn’t disappoint my family!

The layers of cake with the center all filled with the goodness of Mao Shan Wang is flavourful and well ratio-ed.

Even my dad, who usually just buys durians and not eat them, ate it and raved about it. One by one all were commenting on how delicious the Yuletide Brilliance cake was. It truly is a brilliant delight to my taste buds! πŸ˜›

To some, it might be so overpowering (in the good sense!) that everything else eaten after pales in comparison. I guess that is why there’s the saying… Save the best for last! Hehe!

But as much as a majority of us love durian, there are a few who prefer otherwise. And I’m glad for the difference in taste buds, because means I get to have another one of my favourite cake flavors from Emicakes! πŸ˜€

Making it’s debut in Emicakes’ log cake collection… It’s none other then…

Blue Winter Oreo (Oreomisu)!

This lovely combination received mixed reactions from the adults and children.

The adults thought a little more cake would make the ratio between cake and Oreomisu better, while the children just wanted more Oreomisu! Haha!

Personally, I love it just the way it is! It’s like having Oreo cheesecake with more cake. The blend of cream cheese and crushed oreos is simply divine!

Both cakes were finished in no time (obviously), and I couldn’t be happier than to see the whole family together again!

Thank you for making our big family reunion such a special one, Emicakes! πŸ˜€

Psst… We got to try the other two flavors, which came in the form of their Mini Log Cakes. Two of these make a good size for my family of four!

Mini Truffle Sparkle and Mini D24 Cheer

The children love the Mini Truffle Sparkle and managed to finish about half between themselves (after dinner, of course)!

The little chocolate bits within the chocolate mousse adds a nice touch of difference in texture. What makes this perfect for all chocolate lovers is the bittersweet taste of the chocolate mousse.

Blake is a chocolate lover, by the way. He loves dark chocolates in particular! I gave him quite a large serving for this, and he disappeared into his cake, only looking up after he was done eating! Haha!

Nakayla, on the other hand, came to me with her plate and asked for more. I had given her a small slice, not sure how she would take to it. It was apparently far too little for her liking because she kept asking for more as I was slicing her another serving. “Mommy, more! More!” Haha!

So while the children were busy devouring the Mini Truffle Sparkle, Sean and I had a splendid time having the Mini D24 Cheer all to ourselves.

For durian lovers who want a lighter taste (as compared to Yuletide Brilliance), this would be just right. It’s not too overpowering, but at the same time, will satisfy any possible durian cravings you might be having. If you have a bigger craving than you thought, go straight for Yuletide Brilliance. Haha!

I’ve never loved Christmas so much before this! Haha! Oh log cakes, how I love you so!

Disclaimer: We received two small regular size log cakes and two mini log cakes for the purpose of this review.

  1. Cut the logcake into half. Top half with more cake for the adults. Bottom half for the kids. Everyone is happy!

  2. Have Emicakes to design the Blue Winter Orea in such a way that half has more orea and the other half, more cake. This way, all parties will be satisfied!

  3. Give the cake to the kids and get Yuletide brilliance for the adults. 1 log cake for Christmas is too little.

    That will solve the problem!

  4. the adults can “donate” their oreomisu to the kids and the kids can exchange their cakes with the adults! win-win!

  5. My ideal solution will be one layer of cake, one layer of oreomisu and topped it up with oreo bits. Yummy!

  6. How to solve the problem:
    Let the adults eat the sponge, and the kids eat the oreomisu! Win-win situation.

  7. I think we should just simply devour up the whole cake whether or not it should have more oreomisu or more cake since it should take very good either way! πŸ™‚

  8. Ask the kids to share the cake with their parents. The children will eat the oreomisu while the adults eat the cake portion. Great family bonding.

  9. I would share the cake like oreomisu for my daughter and i eat the cake part.I don’t have any regrets becoming a kid to enjoy oreomisu tooo.

  10. I will love to share the cake with my kiddos so they can have more oreomisu & adults can have the cake part πŸ˜‰

    Hope I do make some sense …

  11. The cake can be layered like keuh lapis so that the cake and oreo is more balanced in portion and in taste!

  12. The children can eat the lower portion which has more Oreomisu whereas adults can take the upper portion of the cake.

  13. probably if the outer layer is sprinkled with oreo crumps or deco with mini oreo and the center filling, the one with the most oreo, layer with double filling making it colourful and vibrant. Like what my mum said ‘Kids/Children love to see attractive and colourful things that attracts their attention’.

  14. hmmm, half each cake slice?
    the adult can choose to take the top half with more cake layers while the kids can choose to take the bottom half with more of the Oreomisu.
