Melting Point's offerings this season include Plum Cakes infused with rum, awwwdorable Gingerbread Cookies with Royal Icing, pillowy spirals of Cinnamon Rolls and of course, they are dishing out Bûche De Noël too, which is basically a Yule Log Cake soaked in liquor.

One of the highlights of their menu this season is the Hot Chocolate with puffed-up marshmallows, which takes us right back to the good ol' Christmassy days of monkey cap fashion and 7 PM curfew. This cup of comfort is simply a gooey-chocolatyyy bliss and each sip goes down like a warm hug on a wintery night.

With a delicious array of baked delights, Melting Point is making sure that we're prepped for Christmas and these items are also the best gifting option, especially during this time of the year, in case you're visiting your relatives or friends! This bakery also has a drive-through facility, if by chance you want to pick up a few favourites while on the go.
