Charming Christmas Favours

There is no doubt that Christmas is a time of indulgence. It’s a time of feasting with loved ones, enjoying great food, a time of giving and a time of receiving. We believe that this shouldn’t stop with decadent treats and have compiled a list of some of our festive season favourites. Whip up fresh peppermint cookies for your guests to take with them on their journey home or serve an impressive black forest cake for Christmas dessert instead of the usual pavlova.
