We can’t believe we are already writing a blog post about Christmas!! Seems like summer swims in Greystones were only yesterday. But let’s forget the past and embrace the Christmas spirit and all that comes with it. For the world of Lainey’s Handmade Foods, Christmas is all about our Dark Chocolate Biscuit Cake Christmas Cakes.
Let’s take a step back to the origins of this product. When we first launched our Dark Chocolate Biscuit Cake Bars in August 2013, they were an instant hit amongst the South Dublin community as they were oozing with a rich, dark and intense flavour, something the grab-and-go bar market was missing. Christmas was just around the corner and a number of friends and family members were asking whether we could make them a Christmas Cake version of our bars to have on the table on Christmas day. The traditional fruitcake served after dinner is not always a hit with younger kids so this was the perfect alternative! After a few trials with different shapes and weights, we decided on the current 450g weight, topped with a festive icing – the unique recipe for our dark chocolate biscuit cake still remained the centrepiece of this product!
After our Christmas cakes began appearing on dinner tables and Christmas meet ups in 2013, 2014 was the year when we moved into the corporate gifting market. By then we were working with a number of different agencies for packaging design and marketing and when Christmas rolled around, they all wanted to get their hands on our Christmas cakes for client gifts!
Our Chocolate Biscuit Cake Christmas Cakes are now our most popular seasonal product, with cakes shipped right across the country to businesses looking to gift their clients and staff a personable, yet indulgent and high-end Christmas present!
You will also find our cakes in Supervalu stores and Fresh The Good Food Store’s across Leinster, as well as a number of independent local grocers such as Thomas’s of Foxrock and Robert’s of Dalkey. Pick one up as they are the perfect Kris Kindle present for a co-worker, stocking filler for the kids or gift when visiting friends and family this Christmas!
