Sainsbury's Is Selling Sausage Dog Yule Log As Part Of Christmas Range

Sainsbury's will be selling a sausage dog yule log as part of its 2020 Christmas food range.

Yes, we know it's still September, but at a time when we could all do with something to look forward to, we might as well start fantasising about festive treats.

The supermarket already sells a Sammy the Sausage Dog cake, but it looks like Sammy has had a bit of a Christmas makeover.

It's made up of a moist chocolate sponge and rolled in chocolate buttercream.

The cake is then given a milk chocolate shell and is decorated with Christmassy sprinkles and candy canes. It's also given four little sausage dog legs and a smiley face too.

Costing only £8, the cake serves 14 so is definitely big enough to feed the family.

But Sainsbo's wasn't the first supermarket to realise that cake and sausage dog creates the perfect combination.

Asda recently launched its own version, Sid the Sausage Dog.

Measuring in at about a foot-and-a-half long, the chocolaty treat is pretty much exactly the same as Colin the caterpillar.

The only difference is that rather than being decorated in Smarties-esque sweets, Sid is garnished with chocolate shavings. Guessing that's for fur?

Becky Price, Asda's product development manager for cakes, said of the cake: "We know our customers love a novelty cake that injects plenty of fun into special celebrations at an affordable price!

"We've seen a rising demand from our customers for sausage dog-themed products, so Sid is a great addition to our celebration cake range and is sure to become one popular pooch!"

Earlier this year, a baker decided to create their own Biscoff-flavoured version of the classic Colin design, this time giving it a vegan twist.

Vegan baker Beth, who runs Instagram page and blog Vecreation, started off by making a dairy-free 'Charlie' cake and posting it, before taking things to the next level by giving that a delicious Biscoff makeover.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the creation, she told Tyla: "We all love Biscoff (especially in the vegan community) and we all love the British national treasure that is the caterpillar cake!

"Bringing together the nostalgia of the past and the excitement of the present felt very exciting!

"I developed a vegan swiss roll recipe and a custom caterpillar face called Charlie so those in the vegan community can enjoy the idea too! Coming together is always the way, even in baking.

"Making a cake was also the only way to stop me eating a whole jar of Biscoff in one go!"

And if you want to know how to make your own, the recipe can be found here.
