Mr Kipling Christmas cakes are here and they’re obviously going on the shopping list

  • Christmas is just around the corner, and there are so many delicious nibbles to tuck into this year. There’s a cheese advent calendar (as brie-lliant as it sounds), a Christmas Colin the Caterpillar (which would obviously be the greatest gift to guests at festive parties) and even Christmas crisps (which include a Brussels sprouts flavour, FYI).

    And if you like your treats sweet, you’ll be pleased to know that creator of exceedingly good snacks Mr Kipling has launched a range of festive fancies in time for Christmas.

    There’s a new Irish Creme Fancies flavour coming, and the cakes are made up of a soft golden sponge, topped with vanilla-flavoured buttercream and encased in smooth Irish Cream fondant icing.

    Drooling yet? Same.

    They’ll be available in packs of eight and are retailing for just £1.50 a packet. Bargain.

    They’re not the only festive Mr Kipling goodies, either. There will be some cake classics with a seasonal twist, including Chocolate and Orange Whirls and Iced Topped Mince Pies.

    You can pick yours up at Asda, Morrisons, Iceland, Co-op and Waitrose, and the entire range is available in Tesco.

    If you’re looking to add a little festive fizz to your get togethers, you can also get your hands on Prosecco Christmas Crackers once again, or the six-litre bottle of Prosecco from Aldi – which means no last minute dash to the shop when you’ve run out.

    Wonderful!
