Easy peasy

third year buying this - goes alongside a bigger one i make from an old recipe far more laced with alcohol.. .. Making 2 big ones is too expensive so this is an easy addition.

disappointed, where's the mixed spice gone?

I've bought this in previous years and loved it. This year, there is no sachet of mixed spice or treacle. They are not listed in the ingredients of the box now but the recipe still says to add the mixed spice. Obviously taken out to save money but a Christmas cake isn't the same without mixed spice! I bought this so I didn't have to buy the ingredients separately, and it's too late to go out and buy mixed spice as I'm half way through baking. Really upset.

Best Cake mix ever brought

Brought this in the sale and have to say would happily have paid full price now I have made it. Very good value for money brilliant results really pleased and so were my family. Easy way to impress friends and family completely fool proof way of making a Christmas cake.

New recipe

I agree with the previous reviewer, I've made this cake for about 4 years and it's always been good, but odd to add dates which don't seem like a traditional ingredient. Is it a cost saving measure? Haven't seen the yellow marzipan yet but that's definitely a negative for me too.

Waitrose Christmas cake mix

This is not the same as previous years. The most annoying thing for me is that it now has yellow marzipan. Dates added. More brandy. Such a shame it was such a lovely recipe. Why mess with it.

Lovely cake

This is so easy to make, and the aroma whilst cooking is wonderful but....forget the cooking time listed on the box as this took a good 4 hours! Don't be tempted to turn the oven up, as you'll just get charcoal, but give it the extra time and look for the top to be springy rather than squidgy.
