Looking for something to reward the team (or yourself) with? Try these festive treats.
Brioche St Nicholas , £1.60
PAUL, Cabot Place Mall
This pocket-sized snack themed on a French Father Christmas ticks the boxes for cuteness and taste.
If the soft dough isn’t enough to satisfy a sweet tooth, the character’s soft doughy feet have been dipped in chocolate then topped with crunchy balls.
Washed down with a steaming hot brew, it’s an ideal treat to add a bit of festive spirit to an afternoon in the office.
Rudolph the Red Nosed Domonut, £2.
Delivered by Dum Dum Doughnuts to addresses in Canary Wharf
Santa’s trusty steed has been given a cartoon twist themed on pop-culture character Domo.
The creative crew at Dum Dum Donuts have recreated Rudolph’s red nose and antlers with a ruby red MandM and crunchy pretzels, while the baked cake’s chunky filling oozes with vanilla buttercream and dark chocolate ganache.
Baci Di Dama biscuits, £17.95
Carluccios Reuters plaza
Fancy impressing with tastes of Italy and a love story when tucking into festive nibbles?
Then pick up a pot of these Hazelnut biscuits. The goodies, traditionally produced in the Piemonte region, are called “ladies’ kisses” because the duo of crisp, nutty biscuits smooch each other, sandwiched together with a dark chocolate filling.
Penguin Party Madeira Christmas Cake, 1.62kg, £14
Marks and Spencer , Jubilee Place Mall
This novelty snow scene surely wins the award for cutest Christmas cake and more sweet surprises lie in store as you serve up slices of the all-butter Madeira sponge.
There’s a penguin face hidden inside the snow scene, topped with creamy and royal icing, while iced figures and presents scattered around the dome offer further tasty treats.
Parcel Donut, £1.75
Krispy Creme, Canada Place Mall
Forgot to get a pressie for the office secret Santa?
Then head to Krispy Kreme’s unit in Canada Place Mall and pick up an edible foodie gift that’s already wrapped up. The brand has designed a pair of parcel donuts in chocolate and strawberry varieties, both finished with an iced bow.
