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.
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.
