UK Christmas Cakes

The UK has a variety of Christmas cakes. The rich fruit cake covered in marzipan (US, almond paste) and royal icing. The Yule log, a chocolate Swiss roll covered in chocolate buttercream icing. Christmas pudding, a steamed fruit pudding, dressed with brandy and served with brandy butter, cream or custard. And, of course, mince pies. These are small pies filled with fruits and spices. Originally, mince meat was also used, but today they are made with fruit, though suet is still often used. Vegan and gluten free mince pies are now widely available.

Yummy! I love your array of holiday sweets. I think a Christmas Pudding is one of the most fun things to draw. Thanks for your festive illustration and Happy Holidays!!
Thank you 😊. Happy holidays!!
