Little Collins: Christmas Cakes

November 20, 2017

It might still be six weeks till Christmas, but the little elves of Little Collins are already hard at work. Santa has come early, as our favourite online cake store in KL sent us some terrific presents, proving that we've been nice, not naughty, this whole year.

Little Collins' 2017 Yuletide selection is full of festive flair: The cakes, their luscious forte, are gorgeous, abounding with meticulously perfected intricacies, scaling the pinnacle of cake craftsmanship. Rest assured, they taste wonderful as well, promising fresh, rich textures and sharp, sumptuous flavours.

The Baileys Chocolate Cake would be the dazzling centrepiece of any Christmas dinner spread, a seven-inch beauty of chocolate mousse made with Baileys Irish whiskey cream for a mellow kick, lushly layered with chocolate sponge, blanketed in Swiss meringue buttercream, merrily decorated with chocolate metallic domes that look like they could be hung on a tree, macarons, plump strawberries and a golden-hued topper made by The Pink Igloo design studio.

For RM185, the Baileys Chocolate Cake is the ultimate holiday indulgence. But if you prefer a completely alcohol-free version, Little Collins offers an alternative of a black forest chocolate cake for RM165. 

Also a dream: The Christmas 'Cookies and Cream,' decked with gingerbread men, gingerbread stars, strawberries and macarons, with a choice of butter-free carrot, chocolate mud, or red velvet for the flavour of cake within. A bright, happy-vibes creation. RM135.

Aren't these the absolute cutest? The season will be a whole lot jollier with Little Collins' Christmas cake pops - fondant-coated cakes-on-sticks, resembling Rudolph, Frosty, Penguin and Polar. May seem too adorable to eat, but bite into them and you'll enjoy a centre of rich, moist chocolate cake. A distinctively memorable entry to the Christmas-treats canon. RM50.80 for four.

Little Collins' classic mince pies spread scrumptious cheer and goodwill to all with a core of currant, raisin, orange peel, lemon peel and candied fruit mince that's been soaked in port wine, mixed with apple pie for a punchy, starry-eyed dessert (RM125 for 25 pieces). The non-alcohol version comprises purely the cinnamon apple mini-pie for the young at heart (RM106 for 25).

If your parties need more cake, Little Collins' does sterling cheesecakes too: The Lemon Cheesecake is exceptionally elegant, spruced up with flowers and macarons, looking like a ray of sunshine, tasting like a beam of sheer joy, courtesy of the use of fresh lemon juice and zest for a natural tang (RM95).

Other cheesecake options include the pastel rainbow (RM105 for a full cake) and Nutella-inspired hazelnut (RM115), irresistibly light and not too sweet at all.

With delivery to your doorstep (or down your chimney if you have one), we know we can count on Little Collins for a big slice of celebratory comfort. Many thanks to Little Collins for this treat.
