For the last few years I’ve made a Christmas cake for the office to be raffled off for charity. Having been on holiday for 3 weeks at the end of November/start of December I haven’t had much time to do much Christmas baking, and still haven’t decided how I’m going to decorate my own cake this year but I offered to make a cake for the office so yesterday I spent a couple of hours making this!

Today I have spent all day decorating my own Christmas cake – it took way longer than planned but I’m pleased with the finished cake. I’ll hopefully post it later in the week, but first, here is a cake I made for the office for a charity raffle last week. Click here to keep reading.

A couple of weeks ago I made some cakes to take down to the Leeds office when I went for the day. Given it was December I decided that I should make something Christmassy. I hadn’t been food shopping so I was limited with what flavour I could make so just went with vanilla. The decoration was an easy choice – I made these cakes last year and really wanted to put them on the blog but never got round to taking photos. Click here to keep reading.

Last weekend Becky came up to stay for a long Christmassy/girly weekend! Of course, the weekend involved plenty of baking. I saw the recipe for this in delicious. magazine last year and really wanted to try it but never got round to it so when I saw it again this year I thought it would make a good pudding for Friday night as well as being suitable to have with tea/coffee.

Last year before Christmas I made some cute little penguins to go on top of cupcakes. They were pretty quick to make so given I only had an hour left before I wanted to go to bed last night, and I had 11 undecorated cupcakes, I decided to try making some robins in the same way!

Last year I didn’t get round to writing about the Christmas cake I made, mostly due to being over ambitious with what I wanted to do before the big day – there were so many thing I wanted to bake, Christmas decorations I wanted to make and prepare for 12 people coming to ours for Christmas. I’d never hosted Christmas before either! So I thought I would write a short blog about it this year in between feeding, nappy changing, playing and watching Emily sleep – it’s amazing how much time you can spend just watching your little one!

IMG_2728Yesterday I spent all afternoon in the kitchen, decorating the Christmas cake, whilst listening to Christmas tunes. This has been a tradition, since as long as I can remember. Several months before Christmas, Becky and I usually discuss what design we’re each going to do that year. This year for me it was easy – I’d found two designs last year and only had time to do one, the penguin bowling cake. I’m glad I didn’t try to fit this one in last year since it literally took all afternoon to decorate. Click here if you want some elves to wrap your Christmas cake up for you!
