More Christmas Treats
As I have mentioned before, I don’t like Christmas cake, but I make one anyway. This year I decided to cut my Christmas cake into smaller cakes and decorate them to give as gifts. It also has given me a chance to practice my decorating skills. I really liked the silver and pale blue theme for Christmas that the city cake company had this year, so I copied and decorated this little cake with pale blue stars and silver and blue balls. I am quite pleased with how this little cake turned out.
One thing that always makes a good Christmas present and is so easy to make is this fudge. I wrote about it last year too. The recipe is here but it is simply chocolate, butter and condensed milk melted together. You can add different flavourings such as brandy, baileys, cointreau etc or add chopped dried fruit and nuts. This year I decided to top the fudge with crushed candy canes. I am quite pleased with the effect as it looks very Christmassy and it tastes delicious!
