With more than half of dessert sales at the supermarket being chocolate flavoured in 2018, chocolate is set to the firm favourite this Christmas.

This year, fans can look forward to a slice of the rich Belgian chocolate ganache Tiffin Star, £10, serves 14, as well as a Rudolf-inspired reindeer smash cake.

She added: "In 2018, we saw the continuing trend towards highly visual desserts with the 'wow' factor such as domes and tortes. Packed full of seasonal flavour, and decorated with holiday shimmer, the theme continues with this year’s range of showstopping desserts to impress guests and get them talking well into the new year."
