The Godsons & I have a long tradition of spending an afternoon baking before Christmas & this year is no different.
This is some of our other efforts - our baking in 2011
Christmas baking in 2013 when our mince pies had lovely marzipan stars on them
Our baking in 2014
Chocolate gingerbread baking in 2015
Some good biscuits in 2016
A selection of Christmas cutters in an old family baking bowl
I made up a batch of chocolate gingerbread dough again
The lads iced some details then packaged them beautifully in boxes & cellophane from Hobby craft. How beautiful is this?
While the lads were baking, I made some cinnamon & nutmeg cakes from an Ikea recipe that I saw alongside these cute fox & bear silicon moulds ...
Ellie made up a batch of peanut butter bon bons for the festive season. Don't they look fab?
While this was going on, I finished off a supper for us all, to give us the time to catch up with each other before we have our separate festive plans. Supper in the conservatory is always relaxed with a candles & other festive bits at hand.
