naughty and nice…

I can hear the sleigh bells in the distance and see the occasional mistletoe overhead… So I decided it’s the perfect time to make little treat bags to hand out to all our favorite friends.
These treat bags include homemade spicy, chocolatey brownies decorated two ways… one drizzled with white chocolate + sprinkles and the other… simply coated in a white dusting of powdered sugar snow.
In addition to the brownies, linzer tarts filled with raspberry jam in the shape of snow flakes. To finish off these little dreamy cookies, some powdered sugar to dress it for the occasion.
Once everything was bagged up, it was time to write out the name tags, seal off the bags and deliver! Now it’s time to fill the sleigh [ok ok SUV] and make deliveries in the AM…

a reason to celebrate!

After a long and tiring day, it was time to sit and unwind! Relaxation was short lived though, since a birthday celebration was on this evenings agenda…
To make this birthday special there were hats, presents and of course… CAKE!! Well more like cupcakes.
A moist, fluffy vanilla cake with thick buttercream frosting covered in sprinkles had the birthday boy unable to control his excitement…
It was amazing that he shared any with the rest of us!
