It’s that time of year again; the weather has gotten colder, twinkly lights are everywhere, you need to do your Christmas shopping but the shops are too busy and you don’t have any free time anyway! Here at The Cakeri we have taken the hassle out of Christmas by bringing together gifts for you from some of our favorite local suppliers. And of course we are also offering our own range of delicious, individually designed Christmas cakes.
The hampers feature a beautiful bottle of Juan Gil, a delicious Spanish red, chosen by Claire Love, owner of Loves Wines. It is a gorgeous decadent wine from South West Spain in Jumilla, made from Monastrell, an impressive rich wine that will definitely go down well at Christmas.
Prescott’s chocolates have put together a selection of 3 of their favorite chocolate bar flavours and 8 of their most popular truffles. Handcrafted by chocolate expert Victoria Marsh from her kitchen in Beaconsfield, the truffles are universally adored. The selection features flavours such as Champagne, Contreiu Caramel, Blackcurrant, Coffee, Vanilla, Dark Orange, Gingerbread amongst others. A lovely Christmas treat.
Bella Bougie, literally translated is ‘beautiful candle’. Run by Andrea Jones, Bella Bougie create luxury soy wax candles with stunning fragrances. Once you have tried these candles I guarantee you will not want to use any others. Our hamper features a 20 hour candle called ‘Winter’. Its fragrance uses mandarin and clove carefully blended with cypress oil and patchouli. A must have for any room during the festive system and indeed through out the winter period.
New for 2016 we have Tom’s Jam providing their fabulous Rhubarb and Vanilla Jam. Tom has been making and selling artisan jam for five years, despite only now being 18! All his jams are hand made in small batches with natural ingredients from the Tom’s Jams kitchen in Warwick.
And of course, no festive hamper would be complete without a fabulous Christmas cake! Our rich fruit cake is packed with juicy fruits and cherries and laced with Brandy. Keri’s unique recipe is loved by even non-fruit cake eaters! The cake is then finished with natural marzipan and a thin layer of fondant and decorated with our trademark handmade sugar roses and sparkly gold leaves.
And finally we’ve also added in our classic Cakeri shortbread for 2016. Sweet and melt in the mouth; shortbread as it should be. We’ve added in real vanilla and delicate spice too, so they make the perfect treat for sharing at Christmas.
