Christmas Coconut Candy Cane Cupcakes
I think that cupcakes are such a cute gift to give to teachers, friends, co-workers, you name it during Christmas time! It shows that you made an effort and everyBODY loves baked goods!
I actually think I might make a huge pot of salted caramel sauce and fill these glass storage jars that you can buy in Ikea (which only cost $2.49). Label them with cute Christmas gift labels, and give them away as gifts. NOW I JUST NEED TO FIND THE TIME… 😉
On Christmas Eve we´re going to hubby´s family. Since living here in Spain I haven´t spent any Christmas with my family in South Africa, however I am so thankful for the effort my family-in-law makes every year! Think prawns, we eat lots and lots of prawns!
For me this has become “how Christmas should be”, And I love the fact that I get to celebrate Christmas in the Winter!! In South Africa it´s Summer this time of year, and I don´t know why but it feels so much more magical to spend Christmas during Winter time…
NOW I JUST NEED ME SOME SNOW….
On the 25th, Christmas day, I have a house full of guests coming and I have tons (yes TONS) of things to make. I´m thinking homemade cranberry sauce, turkey, Indian curry, tumeric rice, mini apple pies, chocolalate truffles, malva pudding (because it remind me of South Africa), gingerbread cupcakes, etc etc.. ANY SUGGESTIONS??
What are you guys doing for Christmas..?
I have already made, photographed, edited another Christmas dessert recipe post for you guys, which will go live on the blog on Christmas Day! It´s my Christmas gift to all of YOU!
FELICES FIESTAS!! (as they say here in Spain)
