Mulled Wine Canvas Cake

   Christmas is fast approaching, the house is decorated, and I'm surrounded by reds and golds. It's wonderful. And after discovering Belvoir's Mulled Winter Punch - a non-alcoholic version of mulled wine - two years ago, I knew I had to try to work it into a canvas cake. Replacing the water with the punch, it would add all the colour, flavour and sweetness on its own - which also means no need for Stevia. And it worked beautifully!
   Unfortunately I've been so busy with Myth of the Wild that I'd forgotten to give decorating it much thought, so it doesn't look as good as it could, but it tasted wonderful. Just what I needed for the final crazy day of sales - because, if you didn't know, today is the deadline for UK Christmas orders!

   The basic canvas cake recipe, but removing Stevia and replacing the water with Belvoir's Mulled Winter Punch (non-alcoholic), topped with 50g 0% fat plain Yeo Valley yogurt, a streak of Dr Oetker's gold shimmer spray, a pinch of silver sprinkles and one snowflake from a Hotel Chocolat tree decoration (contains 3).
