Christmas cake in a bag

Post  TP on Wed Nov 23, 2011 12:46 am

I saw for the first time today a cake in a bag. It was £10 and you had to add things to it to make the cake. What do you think?

I think they're a good idea for someone who wants to give it a go.

So many people get themselves into a tizz about all this stuff so I think it's a nice easy way to get into the homemade thing but take things step by step. Yes, you're probably paying a bit more for the convenience but that's the way of the world.

I think they've been out for a couple of years. I seem to remember a bit of a song and dance when Waitrose did a Delia christmas cake in a bag, that was when it first came to my attention. But they could have been around before, neither of us like fruit cake so it's not something I would normally think about.

I also noticed a supermarket was giving a delia one away free, if you spent a certain amount of money.
