‘Tis the season to be baking!

I think we can all agree that one of the best parts about Christmas is by far the Christmas food: mince pies, Christmas pudding and of course the renowned pigs in blankets! We often let ourselves indulge in all of our favourite foods during this festive season and I don’t know about you, but nothing gets me more into the Christmas spirit than a spot of Christmas baking.

Every year, I see some incredibly clever and creative bakes and I thought I’d share a few of my favourites so that you can give them a go yourself!

Cute cakes

If you’re not a fan of the traditional Christmas fruit cake, then these cakes are for you!

What better way to brush up on your piping skills then to try out these intricately designed cakes? Father Christmas and Rudolph are absolute icons of Christmas so they obviously they had to be included in my baking recommendations.

Christmassy cookies

Sometimes we just need a bit of Christmas crunch!

  • These melting snowmen cookies make me reminisce my wonderful childhood; I remember making these when I was in school and I can definitely recommend! Such a simple idea with such an impressive outcome. https://cookcraftlove.com/melted-snowman-cookies-3/
  • In my family, we have made gingerbread house making a Christmas tradition! It’s something that we all look forward to and even though we always seem to have a wall collapse they are so much fun to make and (can) look so pretty. https://sugarandcharm.com/gingerbread-house

With Christmas around the corner, what better way to get into the festive spirit by channelling your inner Mary Berry and getting creative with some festive baking! I hope some of these ideas have inspired you have a go, so whack on some classic Christmas tunes, dust off the apron and get creative.
