Edd Kimber’s Merry Birthday pudding.

In our bid to celebrate the poor souls who’s birthdays fall in December, we’ve enrolled the help of Great British Bake Off winner Edd Kimber and a specially designed “Merry Birthday Pudding” a one-off cake creation to celebrate everyone with a December birthday.

On first appearances the cake looks like a traditional Christmas pud, but break the surface and you soon realise that what looks like dark fruit cake is actually a chocolate ganache and white chocolate cream façade that covers a colourful, sparkly sponge more like a tradtional birthday cake. That’s not all – the centre is bursting with colourful sweets that scream Happy Birthday and not Merry Christmas.

Watch Edd’s step-by-step guide to making the pudding above and if you want to download and keep the recipe, you can find that here.

Edd’s cake is just one of our festive Merry Birthday films. Our other film follows the story of Noel whose birthday, like many others across the UK, falls on Christmas Day – and boy does it suck! Watch Noel’s film here.

If you know someone like Noel who has a Christmas time birthday then the Merry Birthday Pudding is the perfect gift to get their birthday off with a swing this December.

Merry Birthday.

Christmas birthdays can suck.

There are no two ways about it, if you’re born within 2 weeks of Christmas your birthday is usually going to come second to a fat guy in red and the office Christmas party.

Not only does no-one ever have the time or the money to celebrate your birthday with you, but to make matters worse you’re always fobbed off with just one ‘joint’ present. You’re lucky if you even see any birthday wapping paper.

Yep, Christmas birthdays can be the pits. Even with the best of intentions parents of children born on or around Christmas can make matters worse.

We’ve decided that this December we’re going to celebrate the unfortunate souls with Christmas birthdays. They need love too. Someone needs to show them they matter, that their birthdays are just as important as everybody else’s. We need to wish them a Merry Birthday.

Were you unfortunate enough to have been born in December, do you know someone born in December? If so, you might want to take a peek at our film on Facebook. It tells the story of Noel, the boy born on Christmas day. Christmas pudding birthday cakes, joint Christmas and birthday presents, not having your girlfriend around on your birthday because it’s Christmas day. It’s all there.

Tag your friends and share Noel’s story with them, show them you care and wish them a merry birthday.

Black Friday Sony PlayStation treasure hunt.

Black Friday is rolling around again, striking fear into wallets everywhere. And to help you get into the mood for shopping, we’ve teamed up with Sony PlayStation and Uncharted to bring you the ultimate treasure hunt.

We’ve hidden 3 PlayStation 4’s in 8 Three Stores around the country. Your job is to find them!

Some of history’s most notorious buccaneers set sail from our shores to seek their fortune in strange foreign lands. Thankfully you won’t have to go quite as far as they did to find your own treasure, and what’s more you should be able to pop in to your local grocer at the first signs of scurvy. We’d advise against cutlasses, muskets, pillaging or other piratey acts, but be sure to have your wits about you – you may need to do a bit of research to find out where each console is hidden.

The gift card can be used for upfront fees, tablets, Pay As You Go phones, top-up credit and accessories.
