Christmas With Cutter & Squidge

White Christmas hamper box

If you live in London and you haven't yet discovered Cutter & Squidge it's time to put it on your radar! Founded by two foodie sisters with a passion for all-natural treats, Cutter & Squidge is serving up delicious, beautiful treats that aren't overly fatty or sugary - in fact, the sisters are passionate about using just enough to make it taste good, so these are indulgences you can feel a little less guilty about. Everything at Cutter & Squidge is made from scratch and as often as possible, the ingredients are either British or sourced from British producers. The eggs they use are always free range and they only use real British butter. Margarine as well as artificial colourings, flavours and preservatives are not on the menu - everything is natural including the colours which are often made from things like green tea powder or ground up berries. Even the sprinkles are made in house. Famous for their Biskies, sandwich snacks that slightly resembles a whoopie pie, this family owned business offers beautiful cakes, Dream Bars, cookies and lots of other temptations that in my opinion are raising the bar for baked goods in London!

This Christmas, Cutter & Squidge is focusing on tasty gifting and I had the opportunity to see (and taste) what's offer for the holiday season. From a Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer cake to Festive Biskies, there's something for everyone. They offer some pretty adorable non-edible gifts too that are a little too hard to pass up!

What's on offer for Christmas?

Before all the celebrations ensue, it wouldn't be the holiday season without a little Christmas baking session of your own. Cutter & Squidge is making this easy for you with the Shortbread DIY Kit. For only £9.90, you'll receive everything you need to make your own fabulous Christmas biscuits. Bake them yourself or get the family involved - either way you slice it, it will be fun! Each kit includes a dry flour mix, all-natural sprinkles, dark chocolate for the drizzle, a piping bottle, cookie cutters and instructions. Easy peasy!

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Chocolate Cake

Whether you need a gift for someone, something to bring to a Christmas party or simply a beautifully presented, delicious, all-natural dessert to serve guests you're entertaining at home, the cake offering for Christmas from Cutter & Squidge is pretty impressive! My favourite is of course the Red Nosed Reindeer Dreamcake which is decorated to resemble Rudolph and features chocolate sponge cake with salted caramel and chocolate buttercream frosting. Yum! The other flavours are Pistachio and Raspberry, Festive Chocolate Orange and Chocolate Fudge Vegan Cake. The cakes range in price from £24.90 for the Vegan option to £53.

The Festive Biskies available for Christmas are so cute you'll want to Instagram them before you take a bite. Squidgemas Pudding, Coconut Penguin, Snowman S'more and Gingerbread Folk are the available options and each one is more delicious and adorable than the one before. Available in boxes of 4 and 8, you can choose one variation or if you're indecisive, pick one of the Festive Selection boxes for a taste of each. The Festive Biskies range are priced from £12.90 for a box of 4,  £22.90 for a box of 8 or £19.50 for the Festive Selection Biskie 18 Box which features 18 miniature versions of all the Christmas Biskies.

Chocolate Hazelnut stuffed cookies

I'm a big fan of cookies when they're good, but I also have very particular taste when it comes to these baked sweet treats and unfortunately I have rarely had cookies from a bakery that I enjoy. I'm happy to report that the cookies from Cutter & Squidge might very well be some of the best I've ever eaten and they'd make such a lovely gift, although I dare you to buy some and not eat them all yourself - I suspect it might be impossible. There are lots of yummy flavours to choose from including S'more, Chocolate Hazelnut, Pistachio With White Chocolate, Chocolate Chip, Peanut Dulce de Leche and Triple Chocolate. My favourite is the Chocolate Hazelnut and they taste like Christmas. What's amazing about these cookies is that they're just soft and chewy enough, but they still have a bit of bite to them and they're not too sweet. I could eat a bucket of these cookies in one sitting and not think a thing about it... They're that good! What's better is that a bag of 6 will only set you back £4.90 which is a bargain if you ask me - perfect for stocking fillers!

If 6 cookies doesn't seem like quite enough, and it never is, the Christmas tins are what you need. The popular London Tin is filled with buttery shortbread and features a colourful, arty map of our fair city. Also available are the Chocolate Chip Cookies, Gingerbread and Marshmallow, which includes three flavours of homemade marshmallows. I opted for the tin of Chocolate Chip Cookies (pictured above) and they didn't last long. I'm not normally a chocolate chip cookie kind of girl, but these were so delicious, chewy and satisfying that they didn't last very long. Each tin is £24.50 and has beautiful artwork on it, so while you could wrap it in Christmas paper, you really don't need to.

Christmas Hamper

In addition to edible treats, Cutter & Squidge also offers a number of lifestyle gift options including beautiful smelling candles, tins of tea, gift vouchers and a collection of adorably decorated tea towels, coffee mugs and tote bags. Additionally, the hamper and gift box options are pretty impressive and start at prices as low as £14.50 for the Tea Lover Gift Box. Whether you choose a gift box or a larger hamper, there are options to suit pretty much anyone on your Christmas gifting list whether it be a family member, a friend, a client or a corporate gift you're sending out to a business you work with. Featuring any or all of the above mentioned options plus other options like Cakebites, Hot Chocolate Spoons, Festive Macaroons, Festive Cake Truffles and more, there's no better way to spread a bit of Christmas cheer. Choose one of the pre-made options or select from the Gift List to create your own and there's even an option to add a bottle of red wine, prosecco, Champagne or premium Champagne for an additional fee so the sky is the limit.
