These are the gingerbread men, two of my granddaughters made, we used the ready made icing out of a tube, which didn't taste that brilliant, shan't use that next time. The biscuits themselves tasted great.
These are the marzipan sweets they made, the sweets are very moreish!!
How about my Chocolate Log, it is a fatless sponge, which I rolled up as soon as it came out of the oven, and that was fun. (I don't think) and when cooled iced with chocolate butter icing, and then into the freezer. It froze beautifully so no worries there.
The last baking photo is of the Shortbread biscuits, which we loved, very crisp and buttery. I just love butter, no low fat spreads for me!
Had a New Year's day drink with a couple of friends yesterday, they asked if I was interested in going to a craft fair at the end of January. Now what a silly question, YES PLEASE!!!!!!! My DH just can't understand why I should want to go to another craft show, he reckons I have enough supplies going to the day I die. What does he know, they are always bringing out new stuff and I wouldn't want to miss anything. What do you girls think? I hope June can make it, as we have great fun comparing what we have bought.
I just have to mention the rain and flooding we have had (the weather is a common complaint on my blog) but it has been dreadful, we have had non stop rain, and non stop snow in USA. I am praying for a proper Spring and Summer this year.
I guess the decoration will have to come down soon, the holly is starting to dry up and drop leaves and berries. I reckon once that is done it will be back to normal or whatever goes for being normal. Keep well all of you, stay away from cold and cough bugs, I am now going to catch up with reading all your blogs. It has been absolutely super dooper being with you all again.
