CHRISTMAS BAKE IDEAS, MADE BY YOU AT HOME, FOR US ALL TO ENJOY OVER THE FESTIVE PERIOD.

December 16, 2020

CHRISTMAS BAKE IDEAS, MADE BY YOU AT HOME, FOR US ALL TO ENJOY OVER THE FESTIVE PERIOD.

Helen made this really cheerful Christmas cake from our Chocolate Fudge cake mix and used a ready made chocolate icing.  The cake was layered into 3 cakes before the icing was piped on.  The antlers were made by simply melting chocolate onto a stick but you could also dunk Curly Wurly’s into chocolate if easier.  Thanks Helen for sharing this charming idea!


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.

Caroline created this Christmas tree with pull-apart cupcakes from our Chocolate Fudge cake mix for a friend, confirming that it didn’t last very long! No surprize there then – it looks such a beautiful cake – thanks so much for sharing it with us. A triangle of pull apart cupcakes just looks brilliant dressed up as a Christmas tree – great idea – thanks!

I am happily showing off Sharon’s delightfully decorated Chocolate Fudge cake – wrapped in fondant & ready for Christmas. 

We heard from the delightful Rachel Burns AKA @DollyBakes – who kindly confirmed “Remember kids, your Bundt tins aren’t just for cakes! Yesterday morning I whipped up a Wright’s Cheddar Cheese and Onion bread in my star Bundt tin”. Absolutely stunning – thanks!

@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!

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!  Thanks so much Linda it is gingerlicious!

This Christmas cake was made with our Toffee, Madeira and Chocolate Fudge cake mixes by Natz. Whilst the kids loved it apparently – I bet the whole family did!  

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.

Jane has made her Christmas cake by soaking 500g of fresh cranberries + 1kg of dried fruit in half a bottle of mulled wine + a glass of Merlot for a day & then added it all to a pack of our Madeira cake mix! Doesn’t get much easier than that so don’t worry if you have not made your festive cake yet!

Yes I have been showing off Jane’s cake made with our Madeira mix & the cranberries, fruit and wine – here it is above – beautifully iced and ready for the day!

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 mixesNow, 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!
The ‘Christmas 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!

 

I thought you may like to see the Christmas Candy Cane cake Linda made using our marvellous Madeira cake mix. This cake was made in a silicone mould available from Lakeland.

You have probably seen our great recipe idea for Turkey Parcels – great for using up left over turkey at Christmas – well, Ian had a go as he had used up all the Christmas gammon in his sandwiches but still had leftover veg, so he made Cornish Pasty’s with our Premium White Bread Mix. Ian said, “they may look a little rustic, but they were a substantial lunch and way nicer than making a Swede and Onion sandwich!”.  They look amazing  thanks.

I love a Battenberg and so does Rob – he does his with a slight twist like they do on The Great British Bake Off – a lovely idea for a Christmas  centrepiece for any of you who fancy a go! 

If your favourite type of cake is more of a chocolate Dundee type of cake (not a Dundee cake at all) then Till’s lovely Chocolate & Orange cake with blanched almonds is certainly for you!

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

All good wishes, Deb the Bread
