To help spread the festive cheer and to celebrate its first Christmas in a brand-new location, Emporium Hotel South Bank’s Executive Sous Chef (Pastry) Alex Liddle has revealed a dazzling array of elegant new festive treats, available from December 1 in Belle Époque. 

The joyful creations showcase traditional flavours of Christmas, with hints of egg nog, brandy caramel, gingerbread and mulled wine, and enjoyed in store, takeaway or pre-ordered for holiday entertaining.

A range of petit cakes can be purchased individually ($7 to $9 each), as a mixed box of three ($25), or box of six ($45).  The beautifully decadent treats include:Christmas Bauble with egg nog mousse, brandy caramel, apricot compote, white chocolate and candied ginger dip, white chocolate plaque and bauble décor; Mulled Wine, with mulled wine cremeaux, cassis mousse, mulled wine gummies, spiced hazelnut dacquoise; Christmas Trifle with kirsch soaked lady finger sponge, cherry jelly, maraschino, whipped mascarpone cream, chocolate sauce, fresh cherries, meringue, chocolate shards; Deck the Halls, complete with gingerbread, matcha tea mousse, strawberry jellies, raspberry and blackberries; and Santa Goes Surfing, with papaya and pineapple compote, passionfruit cremeaux, banana mousse, rice bubble crunch.

In addition, a series of unique and fun yule logs will provide a wow-factor to any festive gathering, catering for around six people each. Priced between $35-$45 each, they include: Polar Bear Party, a delicious vanilla sponge with white chocolate freckle, strawberry jelly, vanilla mousse, whipped cream; Spice Up Your Life, a moist gingerbread sponge with valrhona milk chocolate mousse, gingerbread Brulee, and orange & apricot marmalade; Cherry Bomb, made with kirsch soaked lady finger sponge, mulled wine gummies, sour cherry bavarois, chocolate ripple, and whipped mascarpone; and Santa Goes Surfing, with papaya and pineapple compote, passionfruit cremeaux, banana mousse, and rice bubble crunch.
