The Christmas spirit is truly alive down at AWARD-WINNING Paraparaumu Kapiti Cakes and Bakery. From the traditional to the truly unique, Kapiti Cakes and Bakery have a range of scrumptious Christmas treats.
For those looking for something a little different, Thomas Thomas from Kapiti Cakes recommends trying Stollen this Christmas. Stollen is a traditional German Christmas bread.
“Featuring a delicious Almond Centre, Stollen is a buttery, fruit-filled, sugar-coated loaf, and is about as rich and dense as yeast bread can get,” says Thomas.
Making Stollen as tasty as possible without dooming it to heaviness is a tricky balancing act which is something Kapiti Cakes achieve perfectly.
If you are looking for an after Christmas lunch treat, then look no further than the Dutch favourite Almond Speculaas. Almond Speculaas are a spiced shortcrust biscuit originated from the Netherlands. “It is a spiced short crust biscuit that is often referred to as ‘tasting like Christmas,” adds Thomas.
Want to impress your Christmas guests? Then you can’t go past a handmade gingerbread house crafted by the experts at Kapiti Cakes Bakery. Adorned with succulent decorations, these gingerbread houses are almost too ornamental to justify eating.
