Not everyone is a fan of the traditional rich fruit Christmas cake, so I have created a recipe here that will excite your creativity and please your palate. Based on a delicious Christmas-infused chocolate biscuit cake, the components for this Christmas wreath cake can be made well in advance, helping you to organise and plan. The cake itself requires no baking – simply refrigerate until firm and then cover with chocolate fondant sugar paste. – Mich Turner

Baking brings a huge amount of pleasure to the baker, the recipient, and those sharing in the sweet treats. But how can you ensure that your bakes are nutritious, delicious, and healthier for everyday baking? Simple choices can help you make the most of your baking to improve your self-confidence, sense of achievement, skill and repertoire, but at the same time ensure every bake looks impressive and tastes delicious, whilst being mindful of nutritional content.
With many people opting to follow lower fat, lower sugar, dairy-free, fat-free, wheat-free or gluten-free diets, it can be challenging to know what to bake that’s delicious and nutritious.
