A SLICE OF CHRISTMAS
Welcome the season with a piece of fruity, nutty cake, guaranteed to put you in a festive mood
There’s nothing like the spicy, rich flavours of a brandy-laced and royal-iced Christmas cake to signal the arrival of the holiday season. This year, M&S’s expert bakers have developed the ultimate showstopper: a moist, dense, eight-month matured jewelled poinsettia version that’s packed with fruit and almonds, swathed in marzipan and snow-white icing and hand finished with gold and copper-lustred petals and gems. The port-soaked Vostizza currants are grown in the mountains in the Aeghion region of Greece, in a microclimate and rich soil that help give them a distinct flavour, while the flame raisins are dried from extra sweet and juicy red grapes. Let the feasting commence!
