Now that December is here, it's time to start shopping for Christmas cakes, gingerbread cookies and other Yuletide goodies. Feast your eyes on these whimsical treats to make your Christmas extra magical.

1. PrimaDéli

This year, PrimaDéli unveils several gorgeous cakes in honour of Yuletide celebrations. Marvel at the intricately handcrafted Santa's Cottage, made with velvety strawberry cream cheese and moist vanilla sponge cake, or sink your teeth into the limited-edition Whimsical Garden, a decadent chocolate sponge cake layered with chocolate cream and dark sweet cherry filling. Adorned with reindeer and sprigs of holly, this woodland-themed creation looks almost too good to eat!

2. Toast Box

Toast Box adds a dash of local flair to Yuletide delights with its Christmas Sharing Bundle, which contains one Christmas whole cake and a Kopi-To-Go (approximately 12 to 14 small cups' worth of kopi).

Choose between two equally delectable cakes: the Winter Cherry Butter Cake, which channels the beauty of a snowy wonderland through a smooth layer of buttercream, topped off by a generous sprinkle of desiccated coconut, or the Choco Cherry Forest Cake, a spongy chocolate chiffon cake drizzled with chocolate ganache and dotted with glazed red cherries for a festive touch.

Hungry for more? Go all out with a simple yet elegant Gingerbread Christmas Tree, made of several tasty gingerbread pieces stacked together to build a mini Christmas tree, complete with gingerbread star on top.

6. PAZZION Café Christmas Merriment

Whether you're a living embodiment of the Christmas spirit or a total Scrooge, PAZZION Café has something for you. Meet PAZZION Café's Christmas menu, which features three special dishes designed to spread a bit of Christmas cheer.

Take a bite of the adorable yet sinfully rich Rudolph's Chocolate Wonderland (no glowing red nose, unfortunately, though it's made with mini pretzels for his antlers), then wash it down with The Grinch's Dream, a smooth and creamy milkshake topped off with a whipped cream Christmas tree (complete with silver candy balls and cereal honey stars for decor).

Sugar overload getting to you? Cleanse your palate with Mrs Claus' Cheesy Cravings, a scrumptious camembert cheese bowl garnished with thyme, toasted almonds and mouth-watering sourdough bread.

The Christmas edition of this delicious dessert comes in two flavours: Gift From Santa Yogurt Cake and Gift from Santa Choco Cake. Whichever flavour you choose, the tower of pancakes is dotted with fresh fruits and topped off with a cheery figurine, giving it a quirky yet appealing look.

In addition, be sure to try the newly launched Coffee Burnt Cheesecake, an innovative rendition of the popular burnt cheesecake dessert, now infused with an aromatic undertone of coffee.
