"Christmas is coming and the geese are getting fat,
Please put a penny in the old mans hat,
If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do,
If you haven't got a ha'penny, God bless you!"
Yes, I am talking about Christmas already! Christmas is a wonderful time to spend with family, friends and loved ones. Decorating the tree together, putting up baubles and tinsel, making mince pies, wrapping presents... I can hear the jingle of bells already! My favourite part of Christmas is making my mincemeat and the Christmas cakes. All that glorious fruit, the spices, (the brandy!) - my kitchen smells DIVINE when the cake has been made and the mincemeat is slowly maturing. There is nothing tastier than home-made mincemeat and a rich fruit cake for Christmas!
I have spent the last week or so deciding on my Christmas cake designs for this year. Ranging from the traditional holly leaves and berries to the silhouettes of the Three Wise Men on their camels following the star. Round, square, or even cupcakes, the shape and size of your cake is entirely up to you! I do cater for any allergies/dietary requirements, so if you require a 'free-from' cake, please let me know and I will bake accordingly! My Christmas cakes will be mainly rich fruit cakes that will have been fed for maximum of 8 weeks. (dependent on when your order is placed) However, you do not HAVE to have a fruit cake as your Christmas cake, you could have a sponge, chocolate, carrot....the choice is up to you! If you have a design idea in mind for your Christmas cake, feel free to ask me about it and I can arrange a quote for you.
I shall be delivering the Christmas cakes in the week before and leading up to Christmas (starting from 21st December), so it is best to get your cake orders in by the 26th October. This will give your cake the maximum 'feeding' time.
