Finsbury has lain out its festive fayre for the season including licensed cakes from Thorntons and Baileys Irish Cream.

CAKES and Christmas are synonymous for consumers and Finsbury Food Group is keen to capture this excitement with its seasonal offering for 2023.

The firm has launched four cakes into its festive line-up for this year with a range of options licensed from both Baileys Irish cream liqueur and Thorntons chocolatiers.

Finsbury has returned to its Christmas classics in Baileys, with a revamped offering for its Baileys Classic Chocolate Layer Cake, Baileys Chocolate Yule Log and Baileys Red Velvet Brownies.

The renewed Yule Log sees the firm return to its chocolate flavouring, after last year’s caramel variant, with a chocolate sponge roll with a Baileys flavoured ganache on top. This is available in Asdastores from November and is set for Nisa, Spar, Co-op, Aldi, Tesco and Morrisons stores from December with an RRP of £6.

The Baileys Classic Chocolate Layer Cake is a new take on the Baileys Marbled Cake. With enough to serve 14 people, Finsbury reckons this will be a, “real party piece,” for this Christmas. Available on Sainsbury’s shelves now, the RRP for this one sits at £15.

This is available in Asda now and in Spar stores late November, with an RRP of £2 per pack.
