I don’t do much decorating at home but the tree’s up, the lights are in the window and the wreath (bought for me by my mum, bless her) is on the door. It’s not straight, but it’s the thought that counts 🙂
I’ve made, written and posted my cards and have only got a couple of bits left to get, luckily, as I’m working every day this week. I say “working” but the Christmas and New Year papers are so tiny, there ain’t a huge amount to do – and it’s our Christmas lunch on Wednesday so I can’t see a huge amount getting done that afternoon either… 🙂
I’ve had a lot of baking to do this last week too. The lady at the farm shop up the road, who’s bought a few of my cakes, put up a sign I’d made saying gluten- and dairy-free cakes to order and I got my first one! Just to be different though, it had to be free of gluten, dairy and soya – and the bloke it was for was allergic to chocolate too…!
So I made one of these hazelnut cakes, spreading raspberry jam in the middle and topping with this coconut/berry icing (Also linked on the cake post).
I haven’t heard any feedback yet… but I did get a second order, for a GF chocolate cake. Maybe I can retire from “proper” work sooner than I thought 🙂
And although I managed to make far too much of the icing, believe me when I say that wasn’t a problem…
Possibly definitely a very sugary breakfast topping – but it is Christmas after all.
*X Factor style pause*
Congratulations lovely Fashionista – and you don’t even have to do anything! I’ll let Zalando know your email and they’ll send you the code to use online – hope you enjoy it 🙂
And last of all, with a completely un-Christmassy theme, remember my carrot experiment?
I’d been told by a bloke at the greengrocer’s stall in the market that putting a carrot top in water would grow a new carrot. With visions of self-sufficiency and bushels of carrots in mind, I gave it a go.
That was three weeks ago, this is now:
Maybe not 🙂
Happy last-week-before-Christmas! Are you organised yet??
