Logcakes by Metrocakes

I have mentioned previously that MetroCakes is one bakery that specializes not only in baking and customizing cake but also in their speedy delivery services. Last minute cake orders or busy schedule? Fret not!

Orders placed before 11am can be delivered on the same day, between 6pm to 9pm and orders placed before 6pm can be delivered on the next day from 1pm to 5pm. Sounds convenient, right?

For those who have intention to order log cakes for this festive period. Most places have started their sale of log cakes and to enjoy early bird discount, one will have to place their orders quick as most early bird promotions end by 30th November (at least I have come across a few).

For MetroCakes, one can enjoy 25% off the usual price if an online order is placed by 30th November 2010. So don't miss out the good deal.

Enhanted Woods

There are two flavours of log cakes offered by MetroCakes, namely Enchanted Woods and Christmas Knight. The former is a chocolate mousse cake with two layers of rich chocolate mousse and rum soaked cherries sandwiched between chocolate sponge, topped with mini eclairs.

Our criteria for log cakes are simple. Not too pricey and well-received by many. I happened to have a gathering of 8 last weekend and hence this 1kg cake manages to feed >10 (including us and Yuan's family members) and the verdict is...

Thumbs up to it being not-so-sweet, nods for the fresh chocolate sponge and mousse and about 4 of my friends, not forgetting Yuan's mummy asking where this cake is purchased. In summary, the cake was wiped out within an hour.

Apart from MetroCakes' niche in its delivery service, we have to agree that the cake is very fresh, thereby explaining the soft and moist texture. With the rum soaked cherries, this does show resemblance to a black forest cake. A flavour that won't go wrong to most unless you have people allergic to chocolate.

Christmas Knight, which we have not tried is defined by MetroCakes to be an all-time favourite for its milky hazelnut cream with crushed hazelnut bits cushioned on chocolate sponge, finished with a generous layer of dark chocolate fudge.

The pricing of the log cakes are as follows,
500g - $44.90
1kg - $59.90
1.5kg - 79.90
2kg - $99.90
Note that all prices have include delivery.

As mentioned earlier, there is a 25% discount off the usual price for any online order by 30th Nov 2010.

Last but not least, many thanks to Cerissa for the complementary log cake from Metrocakes.
