'Better as a doorstop' - Breakfast's Daniel Faitaua talks utter contempt for Christmas cake

With just one week to go before Christmas, TVNZ's Breakfast is discussing one of the season's most divisive issues – Christmas cake - with Breakfast news presenter Daniel Faitaua saying the seasonal treat would be "better as a doorstop".

“I hate Christmas cake. I think it’s probably the most easiest cake to say that I hate,” he said.

"I just think it is overly sweet, it is dense and it's surprisingly heavy. And fruit – don't even get me started on that. I know that it's a Christmas cake, but I think it would be better as a doorstop.

"Not a fan."

Breakfast host Hayley Holt said she disliked the food as a child but learned to love it as she aged.

"I have, in the last few years, decided I like Christmas cake. I never did when I was young," she said.

"My tastebuds have matured."

Breakfast host Jack Tame responded, "You're right. I did have it with blue cheese relatively recently".
