Cakes and chocolates take the centre stage at any celebration, be it a birthday, an anniversary or even Christmas. Special occasions deserve special celebrations and these sweet concoctions are a must, especially when it is Christmas.

A traditional rum cake will always be a hit at any Christmas party. A good rum cake should be full of dried fruits soaked in rum. If you love baking, you can start a few days in advance to try and get as much rum in the dry fruits as you possibly can. Otherwise, a good store-bought plum cake should be just as fine as a Christmas gift.
This type of ‘cake’ is made up of many cupcakes. The cupcakes are arranged together and frosted in a way that makes the whole thinglook like one cake. You can order a Christmas tree pull-apart cake so that everyone can get in on the celebrations. Christmas flower gifts are great, but an edible Christmas tree? Now that’s something else!

They come in many shapes and flavours, so you can pick one of many, depending on the strength of the party you are attending. Get a festive Christmas-themed box to wrap the truffles as the perfect gift they are.
