Chocolate Crispy Classic

Chocolate Crispy Classic (500gm)

Log cakes are often sold at a size of 1kg and when the clique is small, most will be pondering what to do with the excess, particularly when we want to save some room for turkey and other Christmas goodies.

We selected Fairmont's Chocolate Crispy Classic for our Xmas gathering due to its price and size. At $19.69 (20% early bird for UOB card holders) for a 500g logcake, this is indeed reasonable. In fact, this is enough to feed 10 people though a 1kg log cake is recommended for 8-10 people.

Taste-wise, one can expect the regular chocolate log cake, a combination of chocolate buttercream and chocolate sponge cake. Fairmont does it pretty well as it does not have the powdery texture which we dread, but instead, a soft and springy sponge. Moreover, the additional chocolate crunch makes this different from the conventonal chocolate logcake. The only setback is it being alittle sweet to my liking, so for those who are particular with sweetness, one might want to check with the hotel to reduce its sugar content.
