Free Choice:

Baking today, I am feeling a bit stuffed now, I only had one of the buns that I made but I feel as if the sugar and other ingredients are coating me, including my throat!

I finished baking the christmas cake, happy with it and now it is all wrapped up and held together with one of my new christmas washi tapes :)



I also made a recipe for a Christmas Wreath from The Great British Bake Off book. I didn't have the right size tins so adapted and so ended up with some individual buns as well as the wreath. Absolutely delicious, it is a brioche dough mixed with sultanas (which I might have steeped in amaretto ;) ) chopped nuts, marzipan and orange zest. You then make orange curd and pipe it into the middle. That was a faff too far and next time I will cut them in half and spread the curd. But they were delicious :)
