Posts Tagged ‘Christmas’

photo 1 (6)It’s December so I think it’s acceptable to start doing some Christmas baking. I always start thinking about what I want to bake for Christmas months in advance and then come up with a list way too long and completely unachievable. I’ve tried to be a bit more realistic this year but it still feels like there’s a lot to fit in in a short time! So here’s our first batch of Christmas baking…

20131215-215412.jpg This weekend, I’ve definitely started to feel Christmassy. Tom was working (again!) so I spent all day yesterday baking and wrapping presents. Today I saw pretty much everyone in the family – first we had a roast at my Auntie Ann’s house with everyone from my mum’s side of the family and then we over to see my Great Auntie Joan who had just arrived from American and most of my dad’s side of the family was there. When I got back I was still feeling festive so I decided to make some Christmas cupcakes. Are you feeling festive?

boozy robin cake

So it’s probably a bit late to actually make a Christmas cake (I made mine about 6 weeks ago and it’s been injected with brandy once a week since then!) and maybe even too late to decorate it. But if you’re feeling ambitious then how about decorating it with drunken robins?! If you want to, here’s how.

family of snowmen

If you make a whole batch of brownies and don’t want to turn them all into reindeer, what do you do with the rest of the brownies? Eat them? Or if you’ve eaten too many already there is another option.  Turn them into snowmen cake pops!

rudolph cake pop and friends

Say hello to Rudolph. And his brothers. When I saw these in several places on the internet I just had to make them! And they looked so cute when they were finished that I could quite easily have gobbled them all up myself. But since they’re meant to be presents for people I had to resist. They did go through quality control a couple of times though, which Tom, in the role of chief taste tester appreciated. Do you want to make Rudolph and his friends too? Yes I do!

gingerbread family

I’ve got so many things to blog about and not enough time! I made these a couple of weeks ago with Becky when she came to stay. I’m having a baking weekend (again) this weekend and I made these (…again!) so I guess it makes sense to blog about these next. I’m baking Christmas presents for people this year and one of the things I’ve decided to make are mini gingerbread men and snowflakes – hopefully I’ll find time this weekend/next week to blog about the other things I’m making. If you want to make some gingerbread biscuits too click here.

reindeer cupcake

Here’s the next creation ticked off my Christmas baking list – Reindeer cupcakes. I saw these in What’s New Cupcake and I wanted to make them straight away, but making them in the middle of summer wouldn’t really have been appropriate. So I had to wait. I’ve actually made them already this year – when my sister came to stay a couple of weeks ago we invited the family over for coffee and cake on Sunday morning so these were one of the things we made then. We even made a gingerbread sleigh and a Santa cupcake to go with it – I didn’t have time to make all of that last night though! Do you want to make Rudolph and his friends?

DSCF8468

I love trying new things and I have loads Christmassy things which I want to try to make. I have made these every year for the last few years so I nearly didn’t make them. But then I remembered how much everybody loved them and how easy they were to make so I decided I would. They are just chocolate brownies, rolled into balls and then decorated to look like mini Christmas puddings! If you want to have a go a making them click here.
