Having had a dress rehearsal yesterday for today's Advent tea (I'll spare embarassment here but check out Yvann's post...) (great fun, much tea consumed and lovely to spend a couple of hours with Ms Reading with Tea), we are all set for the real thing today! Here is the table laid out above...and here is what I've made:
Chocolate and raisin snowman cake (first outing of the sauverin tin I've had for three years now!)
Christmas pudding cupcakes as made earlier this year here. Gingerbread house biscuits (we live at number 65) Cranberry and orange mini buns (gluten free) A nativity in gingerbread Traditional shortbread biscuits The mulled wine is on...now we just need the rest of the guests to arrive. PS: Those of you waiting to see Mr W's gingerbread house will have to wait for tomorrow's post!
I love books, baking and my boyfriend, and love to write about the first two. I particular love "forgotten" books, books brought out of obscurity by republication and those still languishing in obscurity. I'm currently reading my way through all of the Virago Modern Classics, but taking in other books along the way.
