Last of the Christmas orders

Today is my last full day of baking for orders being delivered tomorrow. Here are the boxes of Christmas cupcakes, just waiting for the icing to dry off. I don’t know if it’s to do with the climatic conditions, but the cupcakes rose very well today. I think my favourites are the ones with the snowflakes, so I might repeat them next year. 

Christmas Cupcakes

 My  son has been taking over the kitchen a bit, wanting to make sweets for Christmas. Yesterday he made this box of truffles (just dark chocolate, double cream and butter, rolled in cocoa). I covered a box for him and wrapped it in cellophane, so it’s nice for him to give to someone. It looks pretty good, I think! We may have a potential confectioner on our hands. He also made some peppermint creams dipped in chocolate and today is planning on making marzipan fruits.
