Your Christmas Cake Made Easy

Last year, we were so excited to learn that Delia Smith had teamed up with Waitrose to bring us lazy bakers a cheat guide to your Christmas cake (see: Oh Christmas Cake). This year, we've noticed that Delia's changed up her christmas cake package slightly and opted for a compact box. I'm guessing this might have something to do with Mary Berry's brand new Christmas cake mix from Tesco (gasp!). Not only does Mary Berry's mix look almost exactly the same as Delia's last year, she's also offering up the icing sugar, marzipan and apricot jam - all for £10 - the same price as Delia's.

To rub more salt into Waitrose's wounds, Mary Berry and Tesco have gone one step further and released a 'Spiced Fruit' cupcake mix with brandy butter frosting all for £5.

While Waitrose are currently airing a festive TV ad with Heston and Delia showcasing their christmas culinary delights, Tesco have released and in depth 'How To' video with step by step instructions hosted by Mary Berry herself.
