It’s that time of year here in England where we start stepping outside and proclaiming ‘Bloody hell it’s got nippy!” and spend silly amounts of money in gifts to show how much we love and value people. Yet despite the cold and no pennies situations, we’re still filled with excitement and merriment – Well I am anyway! No Bah Humbugging in my house! Last night felt like an opportune moment to start decorating and baking some sugar-enriched treats and we invited over some friends to help warm our evening that little bit more. We scoured the house for every candle we could find and I ‘splashed out’ on a pack of baubauls in our local charity shop. I was happy to stumble across a perfect pack of long, gold Christmas candles which we let trickle down old glass bottles, just like we have at my French Farmhouse.
It was super cosy with the addition of lots of beautiful paper snowflakes (tracing paper looks best!) and a cloved orange that Carrie made. I set to baking some cute recipies including Mincemeat Palmiers, Peanut butter fudge and Cheese straws all on the BBC Food website and my little brother got set on one heck of a chocolate fudge cake. With two cauldrons of Mulled Wine and Mulled Cider set to heat, the evening was set to be a perfect Winter Warmer!
