It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we have dreamed up the sweetest, most magical Christmas ever! There’s something for everyone – from a sophisticated Woodlands theme with mint, chocolate, Christmas greens, and metallics; to a happy-go-lucky splash of rainbow candy cheer!
The star of the show is our luxurious Christmas Choc Mint Cake. Moist chocolate cake gets filled with cream cheese icing, with pops of caramel, and a hint of mint adding even more wow. To crown this Christmas stunner, a stylish festive wreath made with seasonal favourites like acorns, holly, and dark green foliage. Here’s a tip for our nifty customers – re-use this gorgeous wreath by hanging it on your front door, using it to decorate your festive table, or adding it to your Christmas tree.
What would a Velvet Christmas be without Red Velvet cake? This season we’re going mini, with a cute Mini Red Velvet Cake, filled with cream cheese icing, covered in toasted meringue, and topped with chocolate Christmas trees. The Red Velvet Mint Caramel Cupcake adds another red velvet treat to our Christmas range. This yummy cupcake hides a minty caramel centre, topped with a swirl of cream cheese icing and cute chocolate trees.
We all know our Rainbow cake is our most famous creation – and this season our team of bakers wanted to “Christmasfy” our most colourful icon. Enter the Christmas Candyland Rainbow Cake – a happy and bright Candyland of crazy rainbow colours and sugary sweetness. Six layers of rainbow cake are filled with cream cheese icing, and coated in a rainbow of Swiss Buttercream. Candy canes, sprinkles, and merry gummies add even more joy on top.
Mini cakes are so cute for Christmas – especially for a kiddie table or for those who are young at heart. The Snowy Christmas Cake returns, looking festive and dapper covered in white vermicelli, with a cute carrot nose and smart top hat. Cut Snowy open and you’ll find delish vanilla cake, filled with festive green cream cheese icing, and a new and improved “allsorts of fun” pinata filling. Snowy gets a new friend for Christmas – The Deary Christmas Cake! Deary is a mini chocolate cake filled with pink cream cheese icing, a Lindt ball nose and bright pink antlers. She’s covered in chocolate icing and vermicelli with a matching pinata filling.
