Santa Cake (Sainsbury’s)

Christmas is practically here and we have cracked open our Christmas cake. It’s a very nicely decorated cake, with Santa in the snow on top, with a selection of other iced decorations.

The cake itself has a rich fruitcake base, full of raisins and cherry pieces, this is coated in a layer of marzipan, and a thick layer of icing. It has very traditional flavours and is a lovely moist cake, with good quality icing. All in all I’m very pleased with this cake.

One thing though, the packing makes the claim “serves 24” but I can’t help thinking they would have to be twenty-four very meagre pieces.
