Note from Ricardo

For more cinnamon flavour, the cinnamon sticks can be replaced with 1 tbsp ground cinnamon

The brioche is best enjoyed on the day it is made. It is also great toasted the next day if there is any left!

Thyme, sage and rosemary twigs, attached to the wreath with ribbon, make it even more festive.
