We simply love Sue’s winter woolly here at Wright’s, made with our Toffee cake mix which, along with Madeira is a great base for celebration cakes – of course her decoration is “Sueperb”!

We enjoy many of your Christmas bakes – especially the Rudolph cakes made by Wright’s Office Manager, Karrie and our Chocolate Fudge cake mix. Topped with chocolate butter icing and using red icing for his nose. Cut pieces of Curly Wurly have been used for antlers or you could also go for chocolate pretzels.

@MrCakeyBoi tweeted us with a great recipe for Christmas Bark made using Wright’s Ginger cake mix. I know some of you Ginger fans won’t be able to wait until Christmas for this one!

Edith has a delicious recipe for us here, this time its Toffee cake mix with Christmas pudding crumbled into the mix and a brandy liqueur chocolate placed in the centre! Edith used 200g of crumbled up Christmas pudding in the 500g pack of our cake mix. The cakes are decorated with Christmas pudding flavoured butter cream, a rice paper snowflake and decorative mini Christmas trees! So if you were wondering what to do with your leftover pudding – you can crumble it into any of our cake mixes and make it go further – adding a festive flavour to your bakes!

Edith went on to create this lovely Spiced Christmas cake – with our Ginger mix – this would make a wonderful gift too!


Oh Jackie, your Text Santa cakes are fantastic – made with our Madeira mix and off to raise funds for the ITV initiative to support UK charities during the Christmas period.

Quick cupcakes made with our cake mixes give you more time for decoration – like Andrea’s two tone butter cream creations here.

Oh Linda, how fabulously festive – “your Ginger cake surrounded by Gingerbread houses! I made the houses using Lakeland’s Fairy Tale Village mould”. Thanks so much Linda it is gingerlicious!

Margaret has created these “mini Christmas puddings made with half a packet of Chocolate Fudge mix cooked in mini muffin tins for 10 minutes then turned upside down and iced with fondant holly and glacé cherry. I got 24 which cost about £1 for all these”. Brilliant idea Margaret showing that it doesn’t need to cost a fortune to enjoy a “Wright” nice little treat – thanks so much for sharing these.

As the excited children break up from school for the Christmas holidays, good Grandmothers like Maureen Smith make these cute cupcakes for the teachers quick & easily with our cake mixes
Now, someone is in for a “Wright” treat!

Oh Edith – I think this is a “Wright” classy Christmas cake! Created with our Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix and deliciously decorated with Edith’s homemade toppers (except the little candy canes) bring on more ideas on how to really enjoy the Christmas chocolate fest!

The genius with our Ginger cake mix strikes as Kevin aka The Crafty Larder has put together these gorgeous Ginger & Whisky Bundtlettes – seasonally superb and something I will be serving over the festive period and I hope you will enjoy them too.

Pretty Christmas Cupcakes created by Jackie here using our Madeira mix – delightfully decorated with candy canes – I love these cute Christmas bakes!

I have fallen in love with Edith’s baubles! Very clever, overload your cupcake with mix – Edith used our Orange Cake Mix – ¾’s fill your cupcake case so you achieve a nice rounded top to cover in fondant. To complete the effect, a little red liquorice can be bent into a mini marshmallow or blob of icing. Delighted with this idea!

I do love Claire’s Rum Truffles which she made, with our Chocolate Fudge Cake mix for her family at Christmas. They would also make a nice gift – they yield loads so say 15 could stay and 15 could go!

We love Lucia’s cake made using our Chocolate Fudge cake mix – there is a whole lot of Maltesers and what a wonderful way to use up all those Christmas sweets hanging around!

Sammie has created Toffee Snowmen with our Toffee Cookie Mix by simply dividing the mixture into 10 equal sized balls, bake as per packet instructions. Eyes, carrot & mouth made out of coloured fondant. 200g bar white chocolate melted, spoon over cooled cookie. Decorate with fondant eyes etc, then finish with a sprinkle of white glitter.  I love a man with blue eyes!

The ‘Xmas Pudding’ is a Madeira mix cooked in Pyrex bowl covered in ganache with white chocolate top. There are M & M sweets hidden inside and it’s another great bake from Linda!

Lyndsay’s lovely Christmas Cake that she created with our Madeira cake mix a few years ago – I still love this one!

Wright big thanks to Cally who, with a little supervision of his mum, made these fabulously festive Christmas cookies with our Toffee Cookie Mix – delightfully decorated by the young man himself – well done!

I got it, I got it, I got it – well, actually I was given it!  Credit where credit is due – we all want an instant fruit cake at this time of year and Chris from Enfield has kindly provided me with one by simply taking a pack of our Madeira mix and adding jar of mincemeat to it.  Chris only used half the amount of vegetable oil required (30ml) due to the suet within the mincemeat and added 200ml of water to the mix.  Because of the juice within the cake, it took a little longer to cook than normal.  This provided a fabulously festive flavour throughout the cake.  Chris will be trying our Carrot Cake Mix next time for a darker, spicier cake and I look forward to more photographs of that!  Thanks for this delightful recipe Chris.



All good wishes, Deb the Bread
