The start of the Christmas baking

My friend's husband visited at the weekend, and, as it was the first weekend of Advent, it provided me with an excuse to bake the first batch of Christmas shortbread of 2010. As you can see, I made stars, snowmen and Christmas trees on this occasion (I have quite an extensive collection of Christmas cutters). I asked my friend what sort of cake her husband likes to eat, and the answer was either lemon drizzle or anything coffee flavoured, so I whipped up a batch of coffee and walnut cakes to go on the cakestand.

More extensive Christmas baking will follow, after I hold my advent teaparty next weekend...


  1. oh what a fun idea an 'Advent tea party' is... Now there's a possible for next year.

  2. Your plate with stars has star cookies on it...you are a domestic goddess extraordinaire!

  3. Mmmmm Shortbread. What recipe do you use?

  4. Love the idea of an advent tea party
