With Christmas time fast approaching, we are all looking forward to spending quality time with our loved ones to celebrate the festivities of the season. One of the best parts of Christmas are the sinfully delightful desserts! From cookies and tarts to trifles and puddings, the list of holiday desserts is endless.

However, if you’re looking for a show-stopping dessert for your Christmas party, why not charm your holiday guests with a delicious Christmas cake? You can sweeten your Crimbo celebrations by adding some delectable, seasonal flavours to your cake. 

At Gladys Gourmet Cakes, we create scrumptious customised cakes for every occasion.

Let’s look at some of the most mouth-watering Christmas cake flavours.

1. Bûche de Noël (Yule Log Cake)

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that this cake made it onto our list. A yule log cake is a traditional French Christmas cake decorated to resemble a wooden log. 

This is a rolled cake filled with whipped cream and covered with a thick layer of chocolate frosting. The cake can also be garnished with chocolate curls, meringue, and small fruits to look like mushrooms and mosses.

The tradition was to burn a wooden log on Christmas as a symbol of good luck. However, now you can just enjoy eating this delicious yule log with your family on Christmas eve.

2. Peppermint Cake

This is the ideal Christmas cake for all those who enjoy minty desserts. Peppermint is known to be a popular Christmas flavour as it’s often associated with candy canes.

For your peppermint cake, you can choose between a chocolate sponge, a vanilla sponge, or even a strawberry sponge. You could also add other Christmas-y flavours to the cake. 

This delectable cake can be topped with a minty buttercream frosting and decorated with crushed peppermint candies to give it a festive appearance.

Regardless of the Christmas cake flavours, you prefer; our professionals can provide you with the most amazing custom cakes to delight your taste buds.

We can also bake Christmas cakes for offices, so get in touch to find out more.

3. Spiced Eggnog Cake

If you enjoy a cup of warm eggnog on a cold winter day, this is the cake for you! A spiced eggnog cake is a perfect winter treat to warm up your guests.

Similar to the well-known Christmas drink, this cake contains eggs, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The cake can also be spiked with a bourbon-flavoured custard or buttercream frosting. However, you could also opt for an alcohol-free cake if you want to serve it to kids.

Alcohol or no alcohol, this is a great Christmas cake to lift your holiday spirits. To find out more about popular Christmas cake flavours and customisations, give us a call!

4. Gingerbread Cake

Gingerbread is another delicious and beloved Christmas dessert. This year, aside from serving gingerbread cookies and making gingerbread houses with your kids, you could also wow your family and friends with a mouth-watering gingerbread cake.

Make your home smell like Christmas with this sweet and spicy holiday dessert. The gingerbread cake is made with fresh ginger, cloves, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and other tasty ingredients, including sweeteners like honey or molasses.

If you’d like to get creative with your gingerbread cake, you could also turn it into a roll cake filled with an eggnog-flavoured buttercream frosting.

We can help you create the most nostalgic Christmas cake with the best holiday flavours.

Even the fruits used for this cake are soaked in rum for days before being added to the cake batter. This is the ideal cake to warm up your guests on a freezing festive day.
