Merry Christmas to all my very lovely and supportive blog readers!
Here's a snapshot of my Christmas in pictures, mostly involving chocolate making & baking...
A little festive corner in my flat
A trip to Cake Deco in the city yielded 2.5kg of Lindt Couverture and gingerbread making supplies. I had to exercise a LOT of restraint in that shop
Melting & tempering the Couverture
Filling the moulds - I made orange, peppermint and strawberry fondant (see that bench space? That's the ENTIRE bench space of my tiny kitchen)
Finished chocolates and all packaged up!
And on Wednesday I drove to Geelong to visit a friend and we made Gingerbread! I love Gingerbread, and next year I'm going to use a traditional German Lebkuchen recipe that I also found. But these were good for decorating (and nice and dark and spicey and full of molasses - mmmmm)
Christmas Gingerbread (how cool are those icing sugar snowflakes from Cake Deco!?)
Have a lovely xmas day everyone :)
