Christmas Ice cream Bombe
recipe for Christmas Ice cream Bombe comes from
& Lyle. This is a great way to finish up
Christmas cake or as an alternative to Christmas pudding.
In February 2008, Tate & Lyle's Granulated White
Cane Sugar gained Fairtrade accreditation and now, in
time for Christmas, the first three baking products
to be certified Fairtrade will be Tate & Lyle Caster
Sugar, Icing Sugar and Royal Icing Sugar.
Tate & Lyle's Fairtrade Caster Sugar, Icing Sugar
and Royal Icing Sugar are all sourced from Belize, the
sugar company's first Fairtrade accredited grower-partner,
from whom it has purchased sugar for over 35 years.
From traditional Christmas cakes and mince pies to Stollen
and gingerbread biscuits, Caster Sugar and Royal Icing
Sugar make for the perfect ingredients for essential
seasonal baking, now with added "fairness".
Whether looking to bake a time honoured family favourite
like a classic Christmas sponge or something a little
more adventurous like perfecting the skill of a crisp
and crunchy meringue, Tate & Lyle Caster Sugar is
sure to get foodies cracking every festive recipe.
Another baking essential for Christmas is Tate &
Lyle's Royal Icing Sugar - perfect for making a creamy
glace or tempting butter icing - the kind of royal finishing
touch that all cakes deserve at this time of the year.
