December has been a blur!
It truly has!
The whole Christmas season kind of just...sneaked up on me!
I don't feel like I made a lot of decorated cookies this year...
Though I actually did...2 dozen for each client (six)...a dozen for our family get-together...plus a dozen for a giveaway.
So that was a grand total of 14 dozen this month.
I know, not a lot for some of you busy bee bakers out there...but it was enough for me during the holidays, ha! I did something new (to me) this year. I attempted this wreath that I found on Pinterest and I apologize...I can't give the original poster credit as I couldn't find the link! So to whoever shared the original post on Pinterest...thank-you for your inspiration!
Then I attempted SugarBelle's poinsettia platter. I was pretty happy with the results for a first attempt! Everyone who received one seemed to like it.
Then I did a couple wintery themed platters.
Mittens, snowflakes, and some holiday greetings.
This green (and red/white) themed set, I took to our family celebration. They were kind of a last minute set. I didn't really have a plan...I kind of just winged it and had fun!
Generally, it's my custom cookies that really "take it out of me".
But this year, I did SO MUCH "other" holiday baking...that it was those that really zapped my energy! But you can't skip the family favorites at Christmas time! I'll be doing a post on those later. I hope each and every one of you have a very Merry CHRISTmas and a Happy New Year!
Here's to a bright and successful 2015!
