Tiramisu with Roasted Hazelnut Log Cake

This is the 3rd logcake of this week and was specially ordered for my youngest sister birthday. Ritz Carlton has never disappointed in terms of promptness in replying emails, their service and the quality of food served and truly indeed, this log cake didn't disappoint my entire family.

I have previously ordered their "Mango Mousse with Mango Jelly topped with Fresh Mango", which was also featured in the Sunday Times 50 best cakes and has so far been the nicest Mango creation I have ever tried. Just based on these 2 experiences, I can dare say that the ingredients used are fresh and generous.

In my earlier entry, I have made a comment saying that log cakes might need a coarser cake to hold the structure but Ritz Carlton has proved me wrong. The outer ring of the log cake is the same vanilla sponge used in their Mango Mousse, thus uniquely crisp on the exterior and soft on the inside. The mascarpone cheese is light and refreshing while the savoiardi sponges is mixed with hazelnuts to provides the extra crunch. The dark brown core is well-soaked with espresso and rum. Wow, indeed a fantastic tiramisu with an impressive layout.

Ritz Carlton has dedicated a website for this festive season and is comprehensive if one is looking for pictorial catalog of festive goodies or their pricing of buffet lunches and dinners.


Sparklette happens to drop by the Chihuly Lounge and has captured pictures of their log cakes.
