Morrisons Christmas Goodies And How To Rescue Squashed Bakery Cakes And Loafs

Morrisons have some great little finds this year. I got this little Christmas stash yesterday but seriously squashed my bakery goodies on the way home. Damn over packed trains! However with a little TLC they transformed.

I put a snowflake gift tag on top of the Chocolate Chip Panatone (£2), sieved icing sugar over the top then whipped off the gift tag and was left with a lovely outline. I then sprinkled with edible glitter, added a bow and volia pretty looking Panatone.

The Fruit Stolen (£1.69) also took a batttering on my way home. To save it I covered with sieved icing sugar, cut 2 separate strips of ribbon to run length and width ways across the stolen. Enough to tuck underneath the loaf and added a bow to the top. I think it looks like a fab little present.

The little Gingerbread House (£4.99) looks really cute, I haven't built mine yet but what I liked about this set is that it comes with a bag filled with ready made icing sugar glue that you can pipe straight from the bag to the house, if you've tried to make one without a ready filled bag you'll remember the messy drips! The bag is a must in my books. Comes with 4 mini packs of sweets too.

Their Deep Filled Mince Pies were certainly deep filled. Beautiful buttery pastry. Will be getting some more of those. 2 freshly baked packs (4 in each) for £2.50. With just a little edible glitter they look really fancy and taste it too.

Morrisons are very generous with fillings in their bakery goods. The chocolate panatone was full of big chunky chocolate chips, I sliced and lightly grilled mine and it was delicious! Really delicious!

The Fruit Stolen was jammed with raisins and had a marzipan layer running through it, again very tasty and a really good amount of filling.

Morrisons seem to have really got it right with their bakery goods this year.
