It might not quite be time to dust of your Christmas jumper just yet but the creative elves at our bakery have been working hard to ensure a magical range of Christmas goodies this festive season.
This year, Ole & Steen will be helping you celebrate Christmas together. Whether that’s providing a place for a cosy catch up over coffee or baking sweet treats which are perfect to share at home with friends and family, we want to ensure you can celebrate Christmas together and honour your own unique traditions, the way you usually do.
One of our festive favourites this year – The Mince Pie Festival Bun, has entered our Christmas range under the influence our newest collaboration with the talented Meringue Girls. The Meringue Girls story began in 2012. Their female founders met while working as chefs in a restaurant kitchen in East London. As they bonded over a love of all things sweet and saw a gap in the market. They began introducing their meringue creations via London’s booming street food scene, which quickly becoming an Instagram sensation.
This year’s festive bun combines a traditional Danish pastry known as a Fastelavnsbolle, or ‘festival’ bun; a pastry studded with candied peel - together with a luxurious mince pie cream for the ultimate festive treat. It is then topped with chocolate icing and chocolate curls and, for that added extra bit of Christmas stardust, an exclusive and beautiful golden mince pie savoured meringue kiss by confectionery queens, @meringuegirls.
It’s back! Our festive twist of our all-time bestseller, the Christmas Social makes its return this Christmas. A braided sweet dough with orange jam, chocolate icing, chocolate pieces and gold hazelnuts, perfect for sharing. As we this year celebrate being able to once again having the company of who we love dearest, we are also reminded that not everyone is as fortunate. Therefore, this year we will be donating 30p from the sale of every slice to the charity Re-engage, helping them give vital support to older people suffering loneliness this Christmas.
