Cheesecakes over log cakes this Christmas

Already tired of log cakes for Christmas? How about cheesecakes in place the the festive tradition of log cakes? So cheesecake aficionados, rejoice! This Christmas, Cat and the Fiddle introduces two exclusive limited edition Christmas cheesecakes.

Purr-fect treat

Christmas Cheesecakes
The Christmas Cheesecakes by the Cat and the Fiddle prove to be a good stand-in for the traditional log cake

Desserts are the perfect treat for any festive gathering, and what better way to bring everyone together than with these two exclusive Christmas flavoured Cat and the Fiddle cheesecakes! With feel-good ingredients, the cakes are bound to have you all set for the upcoming festive season.

Love all things chocolate? Have a Meowy Christmas ($38.90) would be perfect for your taste buds. The chocolate cake leaves you with a mouthful of chocolate creaminess with brownie bits. Personally however, the cake was a little heavy for me – chocolate cream and brownie wasn’t exactly the best combination.

If Have a Meowy Christmas was an extreme, Snowy Christmas would be on a neutral level. Snowy Christmas ($38.90) combines the chocolate-ly richness of cream cheese with brandied cherries. This would better cater to bigger range of people with its good mix of cream cheese and chocolate. Both are created atop a gingerbread crust, adding a touch of spice and crunch to the decadent velvety goodness of the chocolate cream cheese.

Decorating for Christmas – right down to the cake

Christmas Stencil
Go hands on and personalize your own cakes!

While you put up decorations for Christmas, how about decorating the food you put on the table?

With the option of personalization here, no two cakes should look the same. Personalize your very own cheesecake with exclusive Cat and the Fiddle stencils and ornaments. From Christmas greeting stencils to Santa Claus figurine add-ons, delight your guests with your fancy cheesecake decorations before they sink their teeth into these scrumptious cheesecakes.

Each stencil set comes with a Christmas stencil, sieve and either chocolate or snow powder, while the Christmas decorative set includes a figures like a mini hut, Santa Claus and snowmen. Talk about jazzing up your place for Christmas! Both the stencil and decorative set are priced at $5.50 each.

The sky’s the limit

Decorated Cheesecakes
With a wide array of flavours to choose from, take your pick!

Have a Meowy Christmas and Snowy Christmas not your cup of tea? Fret not, the Cat and the Fiddle has a whooping 12 other flavours of cheesecakes (From $19.90 to $35.90) for your selection. From the King Cat of The Mountain, a creamy mao shan durian flavoured cheesecake to the Maneki Neko, a tangy and refreshing yuzu, there is something for everyone – extreme tastebuds and all.

I would recommend the Maneki Neko, which has a refreshing touch to the usual cheesecake and was flavourful on every bite and the Sweet and Smokey Taffy, a salted caramel cheesecake which was a combination of salted caramel and an oreo biscuit crust. That’s a match make in heaven.

Still can’t decide? For all you fickle-minded and indecisive eaters, the Fickle Feline is tailored just for you. The cake is a combination of 10 slices different cakes on the menu, including the Queen of Hearts, a strawberry cheesecake and the Silican Wild Cats, the Modern Duke’s Pudding, a classic oreo cheesecake. Now, you can have your cake and eat it too.
