Baking and caking and making

In the last week I’ve baked cupcakes with cinnamon frosting and gingerbread, currently in the middle of making truffles (they have to chill for half hour), and in a couple days will be preparing my Christmas-themed chocolate and vanilla cake (I’m on desserts this year). It’s the most wonderful time of the year… my house smells of salted caramel at the moment.

If only I was talented enough to make some of these… everyone would be getting an edible sloth present for their birthdays/Christmas.

Feel like some baking this weekend?

These look amazing! I probably won’t bake any sloth cupcakes this weekend unfortunately, but I thought I might try macarons again. The first (and only) time I tried them, they tasted good, but looked awful. I think I might try and perfect them if I have time in the next two days. About time I learned a new technique. Me thinks chocolate is the way to go. slothcupcakes1 slothcupcakes2
