It's the most wonderful time of the year, and what better way to celebrate than by baking and decorating delicious Christmas treats? From festive cookies and cakes to delicious pies and pastries, the possibilities are endless. Here are some ideas for cake decorating and baking at Christmas 2022.
Gingerbread houses: Gingerbread houses are a classic Christmas tradition, and they are a fun and delicious way to get into the holiday spirit. This year, why not try your hand at making your own gingerbread house? You can use our new Gingerbread House Cutter Set (which comes with all the equipment and recipes needed), or make the stencil, gingerbread and royal icing from scratch. Once you have built your house, the fun part begins – decorating it with all sorts of delicious sweets, sprinkles and treats.
Snowman cakes: Snowmen are a popular symbol of the winter season, and they make a delightful addition to any Christmas cake. Whether you choose to make a snowman-shaped cake, or simply decorate a round cake with snowman features, this is a fun and festive way to celebrate the season. Why not take on the challenge and use our Ball Pans to create a 3D snowman!
Sugar cookies: Sugar cookies are a staple of the holiday season, and they are a fun and easy thing to bake. This year, why not try your hand at making your own sugar cookies? You can use one (or more!) of our cutter to make them in festive shapes, or simply roll the dough into balls and flatten them before baking. Once they are baked and cooled, the fun part begins – decorating them with icing and sprinkles.
Eggnog cupcakes: Eggnog is a popular holiday drink, and it also makes a delicious cupcake. This recipe is simple to make, and the resulting cupcakes are moist and flavorful, with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon. Once they are baked and cooled, top them with a dollop of eggnog-flavored frosting! Use one our many Christmas themed cupcake cases for a truly festive treat.
Peppermint brownies: Peppermint is a classic Christmas flavour, and it is also delicious when incorporated into a rich and fudgy brownie. Simply add a few drops of our Natural Peppermint Flavouring into your favourite brownie recipe batter and bake! You can even top them off with some crushed candy canes for that extra festive vibe! They are sure to be a hit with the whole family.
There are so many delicious things to bake and decorate at Christmas. Whether you choose to make classic treats or try something new and creative, the possibilities are endless. Happy baking and decorating!
