Over-indulging in sweet treats over the Christmas period is a time-honoured tradition which most of us take up with great gusto and enthusiasm. Never ones to refuse an opportunity for a sugar hit, children can usually be found at the front of the queue when it comes to dessert doling out time, with one notable exception, Christmas Day.

While the mere aroma of boozy, fruity puddings may be enough to have parents breaking out the mince pies in mid-October, your child is more likely to find rich, highly spiced desserts a turn-off. A recent survey carried out by Lyle’s Golden Syrup revealed that 80% of parents asked said their children have no appetite for traditional Christmas cakes and pies.

Armed with this knowledge, cookery expert and mother-of-three Fiona Faulkner has devised a series of delicious wintry recipes aimed at appealing to children’s palates as well as their sense of fun. Read on for her trio of delectable confections full of quirky twists and plenty of whizz, bang, pop certain to delight even the fussiest young cake connoisseurs.
