Stuff The Turkey! It’s Christmas Dinner – In A Cake.

Now I just have to share this recipe.

Stuff The Turkey! It's Christmas Dinner - In A Cake

Stuff The Turkey! It’s Christmas Dinner – In A Cake:

There will be no excuses not to scoff your sprouts this Christmas, if you tuck into a wedge of Weeton’s of Harrogate’s new ‘Christmas Dinner Cake’ made from all the trimmings – minus the turkey.

The Christmas Dinner Cake – which was baked exclusively for Weeton’s by its multi-award winning cake supplier Allison Whitmarsh, of Proper Maid in Huddersfield ­- contains carrots, parsnips, cranberries, Christmas spices, chestnuts – and of course the sprouts.

“We all know that vegetables are great in cakes but who knew you could get an entire Christmas dinner in there!” says cake connoisseur Allison.

“While the cake was baking there was a definite whiff of sprouts, but the end result is absolutely delicious – Christmas dinner never tasted so good!”

The Christmas Dinner Cake, which is topped with a cream cheese frosting and decorated with cranberries and white chocolate curls, will be available to try at Weeton’s café throughout December, plus this unusual sweet treat is available to order this festive season.

And in case you want a slice of the action at home.
