‘We wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Now bring us some figgy pudding, now bring us some figgy pudding, now bring us some figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer.’
You'll recognise those lyrics from the classic Christmas song ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’ and a common theme throughout that song is figgy pudding. I don't actually like figgy pudding and to be honest, I'm not sure many people actually know what figgy pudding is. However, there are plenty more yummy puddings and treats that you can have at Christmas. Over the next few articles, I'm going to share my top 3 Christmas desserts with you. I will give you step by step instructions and maybe you can try making one for your family this Christmas.
Today's dessert: Spiced Gingerbread Christmas Light Cakes.
Spice is a popular trend at Christmas time, whether it's pumpkin spice, ginger or cinnamon. I found this recipe from Zoella on YouTube after she did a video making these cakes. I tried making these for the first time last year and they were delicious. They're quite time consuming and messy, but very cute and fun.
