From its classic Carrot cake to Middle Eastern inspired Sesame Tahini Cake, Cedele's organic cakes have always impressed with their light, delicate, exceptionally moist cake layers and this is no exception for Christmas log cakes. Blessed with a touch of zen, the Green Tea Yule Log ($8.50++) is such a wonderful and joyous thing to eat because of its unrivalled intense flavours and superbly fluffy green tea sponge. One bite simply tells it all-- a genuine matcha cake that in on par or even better than some in Japan.

What is Christmas without a requisite fruit cake? Mariette have come up with the convenient dessert solution for your Christmas party this year. One of the four seasonal edition flavours, the Mixed Fruits and Nuts tea cake is choked full of ingredients to keep the mouth busy. There isn't much of the traditional booze here, but this makes it a great appeal for kids.

Not a great fan of gingerbread man? Why not try the gingerbread latte at Joe and Dough?
The seasonal brew is not overpowered by spices but has a well-rounded smooth taste with lingering aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. This is one of the festive items launched at Joe and Dough, a 6-year old homegrown cafe establishment which takes pride in serving quality coffee and fresh wholesome food. Run by a passionate husband-and-wife-team, Damien Koh and Dawn Wee, this local brand remains unfazed against Starbucks' muscles and continues to expand with latest outlets at Kallang and Novena.

Where it comes to Christmas feasts, one can barely count the number of buffets with ten fingers. But when it comes to a multi-course Christmas dinner, especially a traditional British one, I think the Royal Mail Bar is the only one in Singapore. From now to 2nd January 2015, one can pick and match an exquisite 2-course at $35 or 3-course set lunch at $38!
