More Festive Delights

Ok so it's been baking, baking and more baking. Today i made Merry Berry Cheese Bars. I found this recipe over at Silver Boxes and saved it as you do with a view to trying it and today was the day. Fortunately i had all the things i needed although i did think maybe i wouldn't. I swapped cranberries for blackberries and was slightly confused about the jellied variety so used just the juice from the tin which of course gave a lovely marbled effect to the cheesecake layer and gave that layer time to set before trying to crumble the remaining mixture on top to which i added some packet crumble to fill out the gaps. Well i have tried a little but am looking forward to a proper piece with cream later :)

These cupcakes are just a basic vanilla cake with buttercream icing to which i added some Mocha spread (with coffee beans pieces) found at Lidl which made for a lovely tasting buttercream and then added the orange cinnamon stars on top for decoration. Got to play with another of my nozzles too :)

 The Christmas trees here were vanilla buttercream piped on with very little green colour added, was a bit concerned when i saw all the E No's that were in it. Pastel tree's, less predictable lol

 The following two cupcakes were made using rolled out fondant icing. I topped the cupcakes with buttercream and then cut out the shape with a traditional cutter. I pre-made the snowflakes using the same fondant icing adding a touch of blue and left them to harden over night and added the silver balls. 

This was made the same way and the snowmen were bought as they were. These are also pretty tasty if i do say so myself  :)
