Holiday baking! anyone who knows me, knows that I love to bake during the Holidays. It’s a excuse to break out all my tins, recipes and of course my baking decorations! My tradition of Holiday baking was started years ago. I host an annual family baking day, with Prosecco included of course! This year I found 9 amazing must have baking decorations that I will be ordering and using for my Holiday baking. I will miss my Sister Nicole, who is has been my creative partner (you can read about that here) as well as my baking counterpart. She will be staying in California this year. The Holidays will not be the same without her.
Every year I bake these items:
- Strufoli – (Italian Honey Balls)
- Lemon Ricotta cookies
- Cupcakes- some variation
- Lace cookies
- gingerbread cookies
Most of my above desserts need some sort of festive finish. I am all about the details without the labor intensive process. I figured this out when years ago I labored over detailed Holiday cookies, they looked good, but were not everyone’s favorite. Over the years I have revised my baking list to only include the most Scrumptious choices and have learned that any sparkling finishes add a magical touch.
The secret in Decorating is to add a little sparkle!
Years ago on one of my shopping trips for work, I was in London at Harvey Nichols. They had such an amazing selection of elevated decorations. I loaded up and for the next few years relied on this for my Holiday baking. One of the last times I was there, they didn’t have these items in stock anymore so I used my supply sparingly.
