Christmas Cake Guide 2021

Your complete guide to our Christmas Cakes this year

Only a week and a half to go before the big day! It’s come around so quickly again. The time just seems to be flying by this year despite the challenges we’ve all faced. And it also means it’s time to yourself and your family to some delicious treats on Christmas Day!

We have a wonderful Christmas Cake range – there's something for everyone this year:

Trifle Cake - Based on a classic traditional Christmas dessert our Trifle Cake is all about the layers! Three marsala wine flavoured sponge layers, one pink, one yellow and one white. These are sandwiched together with three layers of buttercream, strawberry at the bottom, vanilla custard in the middle and vanilla on top! Just like a trifle the top is decorated with half cherries and multicoloured sprinkles. Perfect as the centrepiece for your Christmas table this year.

Red Velvet Snowball Cake - This decadent Red Velvet Snowball Cake has four layers of rich red velvet sponge and velvety smooth vanilla buttercream. It is smothered all over with white chocolate buttercream and white chocolate flakes to create a stunning snowball effect. Perfect as the treat to enjoy with your favourite drink or as dessert after your festive meal. Comes with festive Christmas Tree topper.

Christmas Pinata Cake - Get in the festive spirit with our limited-edition Christmas Pinata Cake. A decadent four layered chocolate sponge cake, smothered in chocolate buttercream and chocolate flakes, with a festive surprise centre! Perfect for holiday celebrations with your family and friends and winter birthdays. And it’s also available as a gluten free Christmas Pinata Cake.

Spiced Orange and Cranberry Cake - Due to popular demand our Spiced Orange & Cranberry Sponge has returned once again, to be enjoyed by all! Delicious whole cranberries are baked into the sponge along with free range eggs, natural orange flavouring, warming mixed spices, ginger and cloves. Fresh orange juice is drizzled on top with crunchy Demerara sugar. And it’s available as a gluten free cake as well!

Chocolate Cake with Christmas Decorating Cake - Get into the spirit of Christmas with this fabulously fun Chocolate Cake Christmas Decorating Kit! A great activity to do with your loved ones on the run up to the big day and will look lovely as a centrepiece on your Christmas table! You could do one snowman as seen on our decorating tutorial below, or even a little family of snowmen - it's completely up to you! Get your family together and get creative this Christmas...

Christmas Photo Cakes - Treat your friends or loved ones to one of our photo cakes for Christmas - choose from Victoria Sponge or Chocolate. Or why not get one for your table centrepiece with your favourite festive family photo on!

Vegan Millionaires Cake - Have the best of both with our new Vegan Millionaires Cake! Half of the sponge is hand-made with natural vanilla flavouring and the other half is made with indulgent vegan chocolate. The vegan sponges are sandwiched together with a delicious caramel vegan buttercream, and finished off with a pretty drizzle of vegan chocolate on top.

Sharing Sponge Cake - The perfect cake for the whole family this Christmas. Everyone gets their favourite wedge! Our Super Sharing Sponge has one wedge of each of our most popular flavours - Carrot, Bakewell, Chocolate, Victoria, Lemon, Coffee, Biscoff Speculoos, Red Velvet, Sticky Toffee, Rocky Road, Millionaires, Apple Crumble, Chocolate Orange and Chocolate & Caramel.
