One of my favourite Christmas songs is 'Christmas Wrapping' by The Waitresses. One of the lines is ‘But all this year's been a busy blur’ and that is how 2015 seems to have gone!
Treat Petite for December garnered lovely festive entries and thanks to those of you who took the time to enter.
Caroline at Caroline Makes made festive lollipops in the shape of Santa, coloured red and white with some candy melts.
Claire from Foodie Quine made candy cane rocky road which looks very tasty indeed. And she brought an interesting insight into the origins of the not so humble candy cane too!
Next up it was my turn and I made festive pretzels covered in candy melts. They really seem very popular right now those candy melts!
Kate, The Gluten-Free Alchemist, made gorgeous wee individual Christmas Cakes, made with the help of a gluten free cake mix. The red and green fondant parcel icing really topped them off!
Ros, The More Than Occasional Baker, brought us a savoury twist with spinach, tomato and mushroom frittatas. The colour of red and green come bursting through and I love to see savoury entries here on Treat Petite.
Kat, my Treat Petite co-host made Stollen muffins. These were bursting with true festive flavours and I really wish I could have tried one! Must try the recipe next year…
Caroline at Caroline Makes also brought us Chocolate Christmas Tree Cakes with a Mincemeat centre. Need I say more? These were made in a brilliant Christmas shaped silicone mould and just look so Christmassy!!
Angela over at Only Crumbs Remain made rugelach with a sweet mincemeat filling. The tender pastry made with cream cheese certainly would make these a tempting Christmas treat!
Shaheen over at Allotment 2 Kitchen had lots of festive treats to choose from and she went with these great Vegan Oreo Wreaths. They look brilliant!
Claire, the Foodie Quine, also entered these Party Ring Christmas Wreath Iced Biscuits. Taking that classic biccy, she added some icing and sprinkles to make them all festive like. Such a simple, effective idea!
Lastly, Caroline at Caroline Makes had some leftover gingerbread cookie dough left over and made these cute edible tree decorations. They probably wouldn’t have gotten as far as my tree and ended up in my mouth instead!
A huge thanks to everyone who took part this month and keep an eye out for Kat’s January Treat Petite theme.
And from me I’d like to say farewell for a while. You may have noticed my posts have been getting more sporadic of late. There is good reason!
We are moving house in a couple of weeks and I won’t have time to carry on with the blog for the time being. So, I have decided to take a short hiatus whilst we move and settle into our new home. I will be back, just not sure when. So thanks for being part of the Cakeyboi adventure for the past few years and I hope you will come back to see me when I re-join the crazy world of blogging!
