Christmas is all about decadence and indulgence, and, whilst enjoying the festivities, diners are much more likely to treat themselves to a dessert.

According to new research from Dr Oetker, 78% of consumers would like to see more exciting desserts available on menus and this increases to 86% amongst 25-44 year olds, so it’s worth giving your pudding menu a makeover.

MCA’s Menu and Food Trends report 2018 reveals ice cream and cheesecake have lost popularity as consumers opt for cake, brownies, crumble and pie. In fact, cheesecake and cake make up the top three desserts.

But creating your own eye-catching cakes and desserts can be both challenging and time-consuming, so Country Range has done all of the hard work for you by launching four fabulous sweet treats in time for the festive season…
