Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! I hope you are all enjoying a blessed holiday with your families and friends.

I am too. I have to say I cheated a little bit and wrote this blog ahead of time so that I didn't need to do it on Christmas day. Simply because we are probably having a great morning of family and gifts and breakfast (our family tradition is a bacon/egg baked in a cupcake tin - YUM!)

Did you get your paper this morning? If you're a Centre Daily Times subscriber, you might have read this with your morning coffee...it's an article about Flour Box Bakery!!!

Pretty Cool, huh? I am excited. If you're out of the area, you can read the article at this link: http://www.centredaily.com/2011/12/25/3031060/bakers-talent-shines-through-in.html

I interviewed with Jessica Vanderkolk, the CDT reporter, on Thursday. I had so much fun chatting with her about my Christmas Village and Flour Box Bakery.

I made these jolly Santas to demonstrate how I decorate my cookies. I think he was a fun example. The inspiration came from a cookie jar...so that's what made him so roly poly. 

Can you see what shape I used? I ended up using my snowman cookie cutter. It worked perfectly.

Thank goodness for my heatgun. I couldn't get started on these cookies until after 10 pm and I was pooped. So I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process. It also added a nice sheen to the cookie (read more about heat guns and cookies here).

I keep this Santa simple. He really didn't need much detail. The holy leaves and berries were a last minute add.

Thank you again to Jessica from the Centre Daily Times for the nice article! What a wonderful Christmas surprise for me!! 

Have a very sweet and merry Christmas,

    I was just seeking this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this kind of informative sites in top of the list. Generally the top sites are full of garbage. archeage power leveling http://www.cheap-archeage-gold.com/archeage-power-leveling.html

    It truly is a lobour of love, but I arlley do enjoy making them. We put together trays of the cookies and give them to neighbours, the kid’s teachers and coaches etc. It is so nice to give something homemade. And people arlley seem to appreciate it.
