For the film lovers, look at their Harry Potter cookies with designs of Harry’s ‘H’ jumper, the golden snitch, his lightning bolt scar and Hogwarts attire. There’s also Elf and Home Alone cookies with their catchiest quotes and characters. 

For something more simple, try the ‘Happy Holiday’ letterbox cookies, which also come in a vegan option. Or, there’s the adorable festive wreath cookie cake that’s sure to look delightful on the Christmas nibbles table.

Lily Vanilli

Give Mum a stress-free Christmas and order in the dessert table show-stopped from Lily Vanilli, one of London’s biggest cake maestros. And this year, there are so many options to tinker over. 

Go traditional with the Christmas Cutie, complete with holly sprigs and golden gems, or please all of the table by ordering in the chocolate chip and salted caramel cake. A decadent number, this chocolate cake will cure any sweet cravings you have after feasting on the Christmas Day lunch.

Le Choux

The West London bakery is renowned for their French patisseries, especially their signature choux. Add a little luxury to their Christmas and order in a box of choux. There are endless flavours to choose from but our favourite was always going to be the salted caramel fudge. 

There’s a whole host of cakes to choose from too, including a festive choux wreath and a chocolate yule log. The hazelnut praline Paris brest is always a crowd favourite. It’s filled with praline and hazelnut cream and topped with flaked almonds.
