CBTL: A Teddy Bear in the Christmas Tree

Christmas is around the corner and Christmas carols have infiltrated my music playlist. One stood out the most this Christmas with me celebrating at Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (CBTL).

 

“On my first day of Christmas, CBTL gave to me……”

Every year Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf spread Christmas cheer by inviting their customers to join in the spirit of giving. This year, full proceeds of the sales of this special Christmas bear will benefit the Singapore Children’s Society.

At SGD$5 each, you can bring the bear home for your true love or donate this little beary love to the Singapore Children’s Society by hanging it on the Christmas tree in Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf outlets.

 

“On the second day of Christmas, CBTL gave to me….”

Two Christmas Party Packs / Cupcakes

If you prefer small bites, cupcakes and little cake bites are the way to go! No need to cut those cakes and each little cake comes with a dust of snow from the north pole or a little Christmas mistletoe decoration bringing in those festive cheer.

“On the third day of Christmas, CBTL gave to me…”

3 mystery drinks ~

Not really that mysterious… I was invited by CBTL for a mini Blogger Christmas Party and we tasted 3 types of Christmas drinks.

A. Iced Blended Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle:  Light creamy chocolatey~
B. Iced Blended Double Chocolate Peppermint: Love the smooth rich chocolate!
C. Peppermint Stick Latte: Hint of chamomile tea taste with peppermint. Not my favourite.

“On the fifth day of Christmas, CBTL gave to me…”

5 yummy Christmas cakes!
Apple and Peach Chantilly Log Cake

Apple and Peach Chantilly Log Cake

Apple and Peach Chantilly Log Cake
1.3 kg, Retail: SGD$50, Online: SGD$40

Fresh peach and refreshing apple filling encased in a light vanilla swiss roll coated with light vanilla chantilly cream.

 

This is my favourite. Breaking away from the traditional chocolate log cake, the mixture of the peach and apple is light and airy, just like the first layer of powdery snow of December.

 

Classic Log Cake

Classic Log Cake

Classic Log Cake
1.3kg, Retail: SGD$49, Online: SGD$39.
600g, SGD$35
A whirl of dark chocolate mousse encased in a light vanilla Swiss roll coated with rich dark chocolate ganache.

 

Highly recommend to let this cake melt in room temperature for a couple of hours. Let the outer layer of ganache melt into a semi-liquid chocolate and this cake soaks up the chocolate. Heavenly.

 

Blueberry Noisette

Blueberry Noisette

Blueberry Noisette
1.6kg. Retail: SGD$55, Online: SGD$45
Brownie filled with blueberry and rich dark chocolate ganache 

 

Brownie lovers will love this. The dense brownie soaks up the sweet blueberry filling and top with rich dark chocolate ganache. Intense dark chocolate flavours. Also recommend to let this cake sit outside for a couple of hours to allow the ganache chocolate to melt to obtain the best texture and taste.

Santa's Gingerbread House

Santa’s Gingerbread House

Santa’s Gingerbread House 
800g. Retail: SGD$45, Online: SGD$35
Warm, fragrant, spiced gingerbread decked with a sweet load of candies, chocolate candies and jelly sweets.

 

Who doesn’t like a gingerbread house?!?! This gingerbread is flavourful and not too overly spicy. Love it!

Cranberry Panettone

Cranberry Panettone

Cranberry Panettone
500g, Retail: SGD$48, Online: SGD$38.
Traditional Italian holiday bread filled with cranberries, nuts and citrus orange.

 

Great for Christmas morning breakfast. no. Great for ANY breakfast. It’s Christmas everyday.. and I love cranberries. Nuff’ said.

 

“4 crazy friends,
3 mystery drinks,
2 Christmas party packs,
A Christmas Bear

PLUS a Santa Claus workshop in my log cake tree!!!”

At the mini blogger event, we had a cake decorating contest.
My concept of the decoration was a Santa Claus Workshop inside a Giant Christmas Tree, so the back view is a giant Fir tree / hill and the other side was the inside of an overflow Santa claus workshop.

    Oh wow those cakes look amazing especially the 20 x Christmas Cupcakes! What a lovely gesture by CBTL! 🙂 Simone x

    I love how the marketing team of CBTL came up with the 5 Days of CBTL Christmas theme. I tried singing it and it actually works! The cakes/sweets look very delicious. I hope these would be available here in the Philippines too! I particularly craved for the Chritsmas Party Packs! 😀

    i like CBTL! Unfortunately, it’s not as accessible to me now as it had been. I’m not sure if we have those special Christmas treats locally, but if we do, would really be great to take our kids there then, even if it means a long long long walk from here. And I mean…looooooong walk!

    Nice to know that they also support good causes in their Singapore branches. Here in the Philippines, they support a youth program affiliated with our church. 🙂

    Those treats look so good! i wish they offered those, cupcakes, bars, and Christmas logs here too!! All we have here are the Christmas drinks. huhu. The event looks so much fun though!

  5. MapleMouseMama

    Oh man all of these treats are looking mighty fine! I love how they are right in with the Christmas spirit and the little bear is especially great. I am sure these little guys will make many kiddos happy this year 🙂

  6. Jason Panuelos

    I didn’t know CBTL celebrated Christmas like this! Can’t believe I’ve never tried dropping by! :O

    It has not dawned on me that it’s already Christmas, until I’ve read this. Great Christmas for the sweet tooth. 😀 I wish I could give my mom some. Is it even in here? Hmmm…
