Checkers Christmas cake voted SA's #1

| Awards and achievements

Checkers’ Limited Edition Luxury Fruit and Nut Topped Christmas Cake was voted the best and most decadent Christmas cake in South Africa in the latest Sunday Times Food Awards.


An independent panel consisting of 42 enthusiastic Sunday Times readers put a selection of ready-made Christmas cakes from various retailers to the test in a blind tasting, resulting in Checkers taking the first place with its locally baked Christmas cake – with real butter, brandy, dark chocolate bits and citrus peel.

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.

A customer's comment on tasting Checkers's Christmas Cake:

An excellent cake, well baked and well spiced.
