Update 23.12.22.  This product is now sold out.

You’ll find the 8″ is in stock in all Thunders Bakery’s for the weekend.  We have a few left to pre-order here in the Christmas Tree finish as seen.  Due to the amazing interest in the royal iced finish with hand made cookies, we also have a limited supply of this finish.  We anticipate that this stock will sell out before Christmas Eve and recommend that you don’t delay and order today!

Traditional Rich Fruit Christmas Cake

Embrace a traditional Christmas once again this year with a festive rich fruit cake.  Traditionally made by Our mothers and Grandmothers to enjoy over the Christmas period, we’ve done it again for you. Our Recipe has plenty of fruit, spices and Irish whiskey for perfectly rounded rich fruit cake for the Christmas season. A rich fruit cake isn’t a Christmas cake without a generous layer of hand made almond paste, and you’ll find plenty.  

Traditionally decorated with Cova Paste icing, this year, if you order before December 5th 2022, we’re giving you the choice of either royal icing or Cova paste icing.

What size do I need?

This cake will last you a couple of months, so it really depends on how long you want it to last.  The recommended portions are below in the table of contents for all three sizes of this cake, and the portions are based on the single slice of cake you’ll find in all of our locations for November and December. If you want to keep your cake fresh after Christmas for a few weeks, we suggest you wrap it up in some cling film or tin foil and store in a cool, dry press.

Order Ahead!

Enjoy with friends and family to keep your Christmas traditions alive & kicking.   It’s also a great size for gifting to family, friends & colleagues.  Choose to have it gift wrapped and delivered, and we’ll take care of the rest. 

Just so ya know! It’s available to pre-order again this year, but we have limited stock, so we’re lettin’ ya know early.  Order for delivery or collection from any of our locations around town.
