The Christmas cakes were rated on price, appearance, taste, and fruitiness.
So head out to your nearest Checkers to round off your festive feast and indulge in one of the decadent Christmas cakes from the exclusive Limited Edition range – the only Christmas cakes approved by SA’s top chefs.Shoprite
