The gingerbread was the first item we made. Emily chose the cookie shapes, the colour of the icing and also decorated them all herself.
The finished cookies looked and tasted sensational!
Next was the chocolate cake. The recipe we used was Deep Dark Chocolate Cake. An easy cake, that is moist and tastes great. We filled it with dark chocolate ganache and covered it with vanilla buttercream. Emily helped make all of the decorations for the top of the cake.
The presents and christmas tree looked very festive and the finished cake took pride of place on the table at our family gathering yesterday.
Next on the list was cupcakes. Again Emily chose the colours and made the decorations.
Emily became an expert with the piping bag almost immediately, she can be my assistant in the kitchen any day!!
I really enjoyed having Emily bake with me, and we will be doing it again soon.
What do you think of all of her creations?
Enjoy the lead up week to Christmas.
