Mini Christmas cakes

Ho, ho, ho! Santa is coming. These Christmas wonders make great presents for family and friends and would be excellent for gifts for teachers or workmates.  Not so heavy on the Christmas fruit, this recipe is a great way to introduce kids to a more ‘lighter’ version of a traditional Christmas cake. You and the kids can make and decorate them together and then enjoy giving them away. We hope you enjoy them!
Merry Christmas
