Everyone knows I absolutely love baking any excuse to make a cake or a batch of cookies. I've been baking a lot over the Christmas period and I wanted to share with you a few of my favourite recipes.

Christmassy Cupcakes

I think cupcakes are super simple and quick to make. These are some that I came up with by putting a twist on Tanya burr's vanilla cupcakes. I really like these for Christmas and I'll definitely make them again. You can find this post and recipe HERE.


A traditional Christmas favourite. This year I used a recipe from BBC food and really liked it. It was cheap to make and very tasty, I'll no doubt be using this recipe again. I Also found a Christmas wreath recipe which would require a little more skill but I think it'd make a great gift.

Rudolph Shortbread

Does it get any cuter than these Rudolph Shortbread?. They look super easy to make and I'm definitely going to be giving them a shot over Christmas.. They'd also be adorable stocking fillers.

Letters to Santa

If you have kids I think this would be a great way to get them into the festive spirit. They're fairly easy and cheap to make and they look really lovely when they're finished. you can find the recipe HERE
