A Homemade Christmas

IMAG0375 I have sat down at last and started on the Christmas chocolates. I’ve been busy making stuff almost every night for three weeks, I loved it, but I really do feel tired now! Hopefully they were all OK, I thought they were quite good, but that’s because I made stuff I like 🙂 So here’s what I made..

White and dark chocolate fudge, coconut ice and chocolate dipped peppermint creams for sweetie boxessweets

Part way through Project Christmas gifts it was The Cyclists birthday, so we made him this chocolate and cherry cake.

It was manic, and quite tiring at times, but I’m glad I did it. No baking for a week now though, well maybe for a few days.  Got my birthday cake to make next week, fancy something a bit different, ideas welcome…
