I am so sorry for the lack #pinupchristmas outfits! This is only my second one and it’s already the ninth of December; how horrid! This cute outfit embodies the festive spirit from my vibrant red Lindy Bop dress to my Elf hat – it’s the whole shabang. I know A LOT of you enjoyed my cupcake decorating photos from earlier in the year so I thought I would recreate it but make it more CHRISTMASSY (honestly, I have never said that word as much as I have been in the month of Blogmas). The cupcakes I’m baking here are using my favourite chocolate cupcake base with mint icing and minty chocolate from Whittakers – there will be a recipe post up later this week so stay tuned. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as my boyfriend and I enjoyed taking them!
I adore gingerbread biscuits and I feel as though December is the month of the ginger spiced foods and I thought I might as well make gingerbread Christmas tree biscuits; just to make it that little more festive! I don’t know about you but I do not have the time to make a gingerbread house only for it to fall down in five minutes and/or smear white royal icing on every service of my kitchen – no thanks. I decided to simply cut out triangles in the dough that way you won’t need any stencils and you can whip these biscuits up in no time at all. The base of these biscuits is vegan if you use a vegetable fat margarine which is what I do and it tastes exactly the same. I have also added fresh ginger to this recipe as I think it makes it taste TEN times better!
