Blogmas day 23 The Christmas Elves are busy

cookies-christmas-xmas-bakingHello my little sugar cookies.

It is all on here at Hedgehog Hill. There is baking and cleaning and wrapping going on in every room. Right after Christmas last year I picked up a really cute cake pan. I have never attempted a traditional gingerbread house as I am afraid of the construction. But I though even I could do these cute cottages.

So I have been waiting about a year to make these. Now that I think about it I could have made them anytime…with any kind of cake, but I get stuck on the rules you know?

So I had also made a great ginger cake last year from a British cookbook and instead of the recipe on the Nordicware package I used that. What I had not taken into consideration was that the amount of batter would not be the same and I was not sure how full to make the pan….so I’ll be cleaning the oven tomorrow, had a bit of a flow over.

But I just cut the excess off and no one will ever know.

I’ll have to post the decorated pictures on the last day of blogmas.

But those last gifts I was going to wrap the other day? Still not wrapped.  I need to get the turkey out to thaw, More baking, no more shopping, It is almost here.

I do have to say that I am amazed at how fast this month has gone. Blogmas is almost over and I have not missed a day. The next 3 days are crazy. I’ll try to keep you up to date.
