Christmas 2012

Happy New Year to you and I hope that 2013 brings you health, luck and happiness.  It has been an extremely busy time in the SmartCookieSam household leading up to Christmas and I found myself not getting round to updating my blog due to the all the other things that needed doing. I had a lot of Christmas cakes and gingerbread to sort out at the end of term before Christmas Eve so my blog has taken a back seat!

Anyway, I thought I would just publish a few pictures taken in the past few weeks to name but a few.  Sadly, I managed to upload a few pictures via Twitter and Facebook via my phone which now has stopped working and has been replaced.  They never made it onto my computer- arrrggghh!  Here are a few that did get onto my computer.

Gingerbread people for stocking fillers- placed in a cellophane bag and tied with pretty ribbon.
Gingerbread stars, hearts and snowflakes- some were made with holes to hang on the tree, others put into cellophane bags and tied with ribbon.
Another way of presenting my hugely popular Rocky Road Chunks.
Some marzipan Christmas biscuits made from a recipe in the second  Great British Bake Off cookbook.  They were such a success with my tasters that I’m hoping to sell something very similar on my stalls.
Children In Need Cupcakes made for a local coffee morning using pretty spotty cupcake cases and Pudsey Bear pics from Lakeland.
Pudsey Bear shortbread cookies baked with my cutter from Lakeland  for a local Children In Need Coffee Morning.
Banana and Almond Traybake made with leftover bananas as a  treat for my family. Didn’t go down well with my children as it had almonds in it, but my hubby and I enjoyed it.
Lorraine Pascale’s Cookies and Cream Brownies baked from her first book “Baking Made Easy” using one of my son’s  favourite biscuits, Oreo cookies!

I baked a lot more besides but for some reason my computer wouldn’t let me down load any of the other photos.

Happy Baking!

  1. Wow Sam – these are amazing! I'm really envious of your piping skills and I love the detail on your gingerbread cookies and Pudsey cookies. Hope you had a great Christmas and New Year, and I look forward to seeing what else you get up to in 2013! 🙂 x
