It's Christmas Cake Time...


The most wonderful time of the year is fast approaching again. It won’t be long until all your festive favourites are in store. Households will be filled with scents of pine, gingerbread and cinnamon and it’ll be time for layers of sunscreen and lots of beach air. That’s right, we’re talking Christmas in September, which let’s be honest, is a little late for us in the food manufacturing industry. Thanks Covid.

This year, we are offering a limited Christmas Product Range. We are focusing on producing our famous Christmas Cakes, and they are available only by pre-order. So if you’d like to offer a Traditional Christmas Fruit Cake to your customers, handmade in New Zealand by Rocket Foods, now is the time to place your order. Christmas Cake pre-orders close at the end of September so place your order by emailing

This year we are offering three sizes:

The Mini 4” Christmas Cake – ideal for a stocking filler or Christmas Hamper.


The 7” Christmas Cake in a box, ideal as a corporate gift. This looks fantastic when merchandised as it’s in a kraft box.


We’re also offering our 9” Christmas Cake which is great for larger crowds, events or grazing platters.


Our Christmas Cakes are packed with fruit and spiced brandy. Each cake has glace cherries and whole almond hand placed on top in a decorative pattern. These Christmas cakes are the real deal, the recipe has been tried and tested over a number of years and it’s well loved by those that have tried it before.


All our Christmas Cakes are retail packaged under our Rocket Kitchen brand. Our Christmas Cakes will be available to dispatch from Mid-October 2020.
