Christmas Scheming

You do realise that as soon as Fathers Day is out of the way this weekend that Christmas decorations will be EVERYWHERE! And today I received another cupcake courier (taking my total to three and capability to courier 108 cupcakes on demand) with some Robert Gordon Homemade Cooking Stickers and I am feeling inspired to start creating!

So step into action I say.

My crafty and creative friend and I are attending Black Pearl Epicure's Edible Gifts Class in December. Mucho excitement right here!

Each year without fail I make homemade Baileys Irish Cream and some Christmas custard shortbreads.  Sometimes I produce vanilla vodka, however this often turns to a very messy Christmas day so that is only an occasional gift because I am then likely to get blamed for Boxing Day hangovers. Not good.

Last year I produced a little cookbook as a Christmas Card with a selection of my most requested recipes. That was a HUGE hit!

This year I will make some Christmas Cookie Mix Jars like Sharnel did. Why? Because they are super sweet and I ever since I saw how fantabulous Sharnel's looked last year I have wanted to make them.

I really like Glory's idea of little cookie bags. I might use this one too for the domestically challenged men. I will make them some cookies, then all they have to do it eat! See HERE on how to make these little gems.
