A Christmas Wishlist for Bakers

Hi guys!

It’s only 13 (!) days ’till Christmas! Even I’m feeling a bit stressed…

People are starting to freak out about buying presents and some people may freak out about what to ask for. Buying for a baker or being a baker yourself? Stay tuned because here comes my Christmas Wishlist for Bakers!

I’m skipping some of the obvious essentials, such as a mixer or kitchen robot and an oven, because these are just too expensive to ask Santa. But there are lots of other things you can get your favorite Baker for Christmas. Or ask yourself πŸ˜‰

Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with Whittard

Hi guys!

It’s cold, it’s December and it’s almost Christmas. The perfect time for a Hot Chocolate themed recipe! What about these Hot Chocolate Cupcakes with the Luxury Hot Chocolate from Whittard? I think it looks so cute!

These Hot Chocolate Cupcakes are the perfect solution for you if you can’t choose between an actual Hot Chocolate or a Chocolate Cupcake. You just eat a Hot Chocolate!

The Luxury Hot Chocolate from Whittard is quite strong when you dip your nose in the bags. But it softens in the batter which results in a lovely, balanced flavor.

November Favorites

Hi guys!

It’s here! It’s here! It’s here! December is finally here!

I’m so happy because now the Christmas season is officially opened! In Belgium we first have SinterklaasΒ on the 6th of December so I’ll have to wait until then to get started with the Christmas decorations. I can barely keep myself together… I’m sure it’ll be a crazy day for both my colleagues and The Boyfriend when that 7th of December comes around… IT’S AAAAALMOOOOOST X-MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!!!!! πŸ˜‰

It should come as no surprise that I’m super stoked about today’s November Favorites. Yup, they’re all Christmas themed!

Festive Javanais

Hi guys!

One of my absolute favorite things is Javanais. If you would present me a plate of lovely patisserie and there is a Javanais amongst them, I’d definitely pick him. Over and over again. Even is you ask me day after day. It’s my all-time favorite!

This Christmas won’t be all about typical Christmas desserts. I’d like to make some yummy festive desserts as well. This Javanais is no exception. I’ve added some gold to make it look festive enough for the Christmas dinner. What do you guys think?

Homemade Marzipan Potatoes

Hi guys!

Santa is coming… I was so busy planning for Christmas I almost forgot my favorite part of St. Nicholas: Marzipan! How could I forget? Sure, my Christmas Desserts are important. As is the wrapping paper that matches the bows I bought. But I do want to take a day or two off to enjoy some homemade Marzipan Potatoes πŸ˜‰ It’s so easy to make you really don’t have a proper excuse.

Whittard English Rose Tea & Raspberry Cupcakes

Hi guys!

Can you feel the Christmas spirit coming? No? No problem, it’s still a bit early. I know.
I’ve told you about my OCD (Obsessive Christmas Disorder) so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I am already getting in the Christmas spirit… Bought myself a new Christmas sweater yesterday and almost grabbed a cute little toy dog dressed as Rudolph today. So yes, I’m having it bad xD

I may be crazy about Christmas but I do love you little Grinch people too! The coming weeks will be all about the coziness of Winter instead of pure Christmas joy, Wouldn’t want to scare you away.

These Whittard English Rose Tea Cupcakes are the perfect example! They taste great and look super cute and they are pretty festive as well. Which makes them perfect for Christmas OR cosy evenings by the fireplace. Imagine a fireplace if you don’t have one. Can you feel the coziness? Thought so πŸ˜‰

October Favorites

How was Halloween?

If I could, I’d skip November and most of December to go straight to Christmas! Or a couple of days before so I can buy presents πŸ˜‰ I just love it so much. The lights in the streets, being together with family, making lovely desserts, giving each other presents, … All that πŸ™‚ Are you excited for Christmas?

We’re not getting in the Holiday spirit just yet. Let’s take a look at the October Favorites first! We’ll get in the mood for Christmas on Tuesday πŸ˜‰

Zombie Unicorn Cake for Halloween

Hi guys!

Happy Halloween!

I bet lots of you are going out tonight in fabulous and terrifying outfits. Others may go door to door with the kids or send the kids to go Trick or Treat-ing. Some of you are going to watch horror movies. If you’re wondering what I’m doing tonight, I think we can rule out the latter. I will be baking tonight, but not for Halloween.

My final Halloween experiment was born last Sunday. Or should I say ‘died’ last Sunday? Don’t know. You tell me πŸ˜‰

May I present to you: Misses Zombie Unicorn!
