Mince pies are tiny pies that are filled with fruits such as raisins, cranberries, and sultanas, as well as chopped nuts and spices such as cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg. Once they are baked, they are dusted with a little icing sugar and ready to eat.

Christmas cake can be crumbly or hard, and is filled with dried and candied fruit and nuts, as well as spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. Many times it is covered with icing, and in the old days, people used to add coins into the cake batter for good luck! That way, whoever received a slice of cake with a coin in it was considered lucky.

Christmas pudding is also composed of dried fruits that are mixed with egg, suet, and sometimes treacle or molasses, as well as alcohol such as brandy. The cake batter is flavoured with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and other spices, and then aged for about a month! Finally, it is eaten with brandy butter, cream, or custard.

Yule logs are made from genoise or other sponge cake, usually baked in a large Swiss roll pan, covered in icing, rolled, and iced again on the outside. Chocolate buttercream icing is the most popular, as well as ganache. And of course, it is made to look like an actual log!
