Great news for those who are intolerant to gluten and have to avoid the delicious log cakes every year! Cedele is proud to introduce the limited edition gluten-free Tiramisu Log Cake this year. Savour the smooth gluten free log cake with satiny mascarpone cheese and pistachios. Made with Belgian couverture chocolate and an indulgent thick layer of chocolate truffle in the middle, anyone can enjoy this log cake, including those who are not gluten intolerant. Always thinking for the customers, Cedele makes this cake with no trans fat and only using organic unrefined sugar so it is not so sweet.

It is made from a highly guarded secret recipe from Bangkok, which includes sesame seeds, coriander and a little soya sauce. This chain is also famous for being the first here to introduce “fish glue” – fish paste that turns delightfully chewy when cooked. Its meatballs, made from fish, prawn, beef and chicken, are also hand-made every morning at the outlets to ensure freshness. It offers two types of soup: chicken stock and tom yam.
