THE CAKE WITH
A SWEET SURPRISE

Serve up a show stopping cake that’s guaranteed to please both little and big kids

All the best Christmases involve sweet treats and plenty of surprises, which makes our Santa’s Stuck in the Chimney cake a double winner. New to Christmas Food to Order this year and a brilliant alternative to a classic fruit cake, this moist red velvet cake with lashings of buttercream is a genuine secret Santa – cut through the soft snow icing and thick milk chocolate brick outer to find Santa’s belt, made from black velvet and yellow sponge, running through the centre of the cake. And just when you thought it couldn’t get more fun, even Santa’s legs are edible. Merry Christmas!
