Day 8 – Chocolate Yule Log

Hello and welcome to Day 8 of ‘The 12 Bakes Of Littlebakersblog’. Today’s Christmas bake is chocolate Yule log. I made quite a few of these last year as I just enjoy making them so much and they are so yummy. It is such a simple bake but looks so impressive. There is fresh whipped cream in the Yule log Aswell so it is a bake that stays in the fridge.

Day 7 – Christmas Pudding Bon Bon’s

Hello and welcome to Day 7 of ‘The 12 Bakes Of Littlebakersblog’. Today’s Christmas bake is Christmas pudding Bon bons. These are so simple to make and look very effective. All I did was mix crumbled Christmas pudding in some melted chocolate and rolled them into balls and let them set. I then put some white chocolate over them and let it drizzle down, and put some icing on to decorate. I really do recommend trying these. They are so fun to make.

Day 6 – Hot Chocolate With Homemade Marshmallows

Hello and welcome to Day 6 of ‘The 12 Bakes Of Littlebakersblog’. Today’s Christmas bake is hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows. I love making marshmallows. There’s just something so therapeutic about seeing a caramel liquid double in size when whisked and transforming into a massive ball of white fluff, effectively. This is a very naughty treat and very very indulgent. I also recommend having this delicious treat whilst watching your favourite Christmas film.

Day 5 – Christmas Sausage Rolls

Hello and welcome to Day 5 of ‘The 12 Bakes Of Littlebakersblog’. Today’s bake is sausage rolls. Now I only ever make these at Christmas time so when it comes to making them it makes me feel very festive. Every year I make plain sausage rolls, Although these are yummy I thought I would change it up a bit this year. What I did was added cranberry sauce and nutmeg to my sausage meat. I didn’t know how they where going to taste so I was a bit anxious, but they where so good. They where a bit sweet from the cranberry sauce but then had a lovey kick of sea salt. I’m am for sure making more of these for Boxing Day.

Day 4 – Christmas Tree Meringues

Hello and welcome to Day 4 of ‘The 12 Days Of Littlebakersblog’. Today’s Christmas bake is mini Christmas tree meringues. This is green meringue pipped in layers to get the effect of a Christmas tree and then sprinkles over it for the look of baubles. When I pipped them on to the tray they held there shape of the tree, until I put them in the oven, then they lost there shape (but I still think people would know that it’s resembles a Christmas tree). These where a fun little bake to try and very simple. I would define try them out again.

Day 3 – Mince pies

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of ‘The 12 Bakes Of Littlebakersblog’. Today’s bake is mince pies, now for my ‘The 12 Bakes Of Littlebakersblog’ I am trying to make a tradition Christmas bake become something a bit different by incorporating different flavours or trying a different technique, and that’s exactly what I did with my mince pies. Just by adding orange zest into my sweet pastry it changes the whole mince pie, adding a whole other dimension. Also what I really suggest Is to make your own pastry, its really delicious when homemade. I made sweet shortcrust pastry and it really takes minutes to make. I really would recommend doing this especially if you love homemade mince pies. You really will impress your friends and family.

Day 2 – Cheesey Straws

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of ‘The 12 Days Of Littlebakersblog’. For today’s bake I have made cheese straws. For me this is a very festive snack so it was only right I made some. To make them a bit different to a traditional cheese straw I wanted to add some festive flavours, so I started by grafting some nutmeg on top, but also I wrapped some bacon around the cheese straw. After many attempts at trying to incorporate the bacon I had to give up on that idea as it was just not working. These are still so delicious with the nutmeg, and such a good snack to have on the side of a dinner party. Hopefully you can take some of my ideas and try them out yourself.
