M&S Stunning cakes, to get you into the festive spirit...



M&S have some marvellous cakes this year, real arts of work. Chris and I were browsing them at our new large out of town store.

I instantly felt Christmassy and am also very excited as I am going to be making a Christmas pudding made with M+S ingredients for 'Stir It Up Sunday' on Sunday November 24th



A real Christmas showstopper, this Collection Enchanted Forest Cake (£20.00, 1.8kg) is made using our ultimate recipe- all butter fruit cake packed with plump jumbo Chilean flamed raisins, apricots, Vostizza currants, glacĂ© cherries, Cognac, port, almonds, pecans and walnuts. This cake has been matured to perfection and fed twice with Cognac. Covered in marzipan and soft icing, and hand finished with soft and royal icing decorations.


Salted Caramel Chocolate Forest Cake (£20.00, 1.5kg). A triple layer chocolate cake filled with salted caramel sauce, covered in milk chocolate ganache and finished with sparkly chocolate pieces and handmade chocolate trees.

  1. The cakes look stunning. I just wish I could do something about the marzipan. One of the few things I really hate about Christmas.

    1. The more I see it the more I have to buy, with you totally, having to avoid my own blog is tricky.

  8. I wish I could make cakes, just a fairy cake would do! These look wonderful. We treat ourselves to a M&S Christmas cake every year, our treat. One year would bought two and put them in the wardrobe (out of sight in case we ate them). With the excess of Christmas we forgot that we had two, we ate one and found the other in February - still ate it. It was a little dry!

    2. Was in Marks at the weekend but didn't go past the cake section - wish I had. But I've bought a really fruity cake - just without the icing or marzipan and am currently spooning on brandy every day. (Best to keep it moist :))
