The perfect Christmas cake

It’s starting to feel like Christmas! Our decorations are up in the studio and workshop. There is a lot to do to prepare for the big day, but our favourite tradition is to make the teams Christmas cake.



So what’s the best recipe for the perfect Crimbo cake? Here are our top tips for the perfect cake:


  1. Christmas cakes are really forgiving, so choose fruits that you love, as the final cake will still be a cracker! Go heavy on the apricots and cherries if you want a lighter, fresher-tasting cake, or go heavy on the figs and prunes if you fancy a rich, darker cake.

  2. Leave enough time to soak your fruits overnight before making and baking – it makes all the difference.

  3. Store your fruitcake wrapped in parchment and then foil – it’ll keep for around six weeks in a clean tin.

  4. Don’t feel you need to feed your cake with alcohol – by pre-soaking the fruit and choosing lighter and more flavoursome fruits, there’s no need to add extra the booze, in our opinion.
