The logcake or bûche de Noël is a Christmas cake with a ritualistic past. It is said that in the 1870s a Parisian pastry maker was inspired by the Christmas ritual of burning decorated logs wherein the ashes were used for medical benefits. Belmont Hotel Manila has designed a decadent log cake that is sinfully rich. Imagine chocolate roulade enveloped in chocolate diplomat cream with choco bits and cocoa nibs. It’s not only visually appealing but also a delicious dessert at Php 1,200/cake.
