Do you have memories of a golden, fruity cake, redolent with brandy and spice, enveloped in a rich layer of smooth, distinctive marzipan, covered with snow-white icing whipped into a sea of low, fixed peaks, and topped with Santa figurines/ red pointsettias / the stable scene / snowmen on skis, all circled by a festive red / green / gold ribbon?

Do these images this remind you of one of the foods we associate with Christmas?

Does wholesome, traditional Christmas cake form part of your annual Christmas fare - to cut, enjoy and share?



If you have not yet baked your own and are looking for the perfect cake to decorate and make your own, head to the historic Brisbane Arcade in the CBD; Brisbane's best homemade Christmas cakes can be found at L's Espresso Bar and fine foods.

Here you can find delicious, freshly baked, traditional, fruit-filled, Christmas cakes "made with love" by co-owner Cate Swan.

Individually sized, affordable and simply wrapped in clear cellophane,the cakes are selling fast.

For more details on what else this great eatery has to offer, see L's Espresso Bar and Fine Foods.

Do you know of any Brisbane cafes, bakeries or cake shops selling divine homemade Christmas Cakes?

If you do, please leave a comment.

We look forward to your feedback.
