Year 6 Christmas

It’s the end of school first term!

My fellow Class Mums and I did it again, we give the children the best Christmas party in the Primary just like last year. Lunch menu were consists of roast beef, glazed ham, turkey and the trimmings, full buffet service and baked goodies by yours truly. I baked 72 mini cupcakes and 100 sugar cookies (vanilla & chocolate), seeing the children happy face really worth it.

Merry Christmas everyone, see you in Term 2 next year ❤

Trying new colour on our annual xmas cookies icing sugar today. My daughter current favourite colour is periwinkle (it’s a mixed of blue and purple). I’ve added a few drops of each on the royal icing and voila, a lovely shade of light blue as a result, she approved!

Little Miss Holiday

School Christmas break is ON, wohooo!

I’ve got my little helper back in the kitchen, LOVED it! She always helps me with my holiday baking, every year I’ve noticed the big improvement, her hands are more steady when she decorate cookies and she’s very neat with her workmanship, I’m such a lucky Mama.

She’s done in the kitchen and shifting to her craft table. In between her cards making and lego building nothing beat a glass of cold milk and her freshly baked candy cane shape chocolate cookies, JOY!

So This Is Christmas

Sunday activities in our household, between typhoon warning and all the excitement of the festive holiday approaching we stayed warm and cozy in my kitchen. We’ve made chocolate crackles (rice krispies & mars bars), marshmallow dipped in chocolate (my daughter favourite) and X’mas chocolate cookies. Most of our baked goodies were packed and delivered to I Love Street Kids project in Manila.

Happy Holidays!

It’s our family tradition to baked festive cookies for family and friends in December, the most waited time of the year. This time around the cookies even made it safe and sound to Vancouver, Canada! I’ve made 2 sizes of sugar cookies this year, the large ones were individually wrapped as hampers filling and the bite size ones were served in our annual christmas dinner party. I also baked oatmeal with chocolate chips and M&M’s cookies (Santa’s favourite) and festive pinwheel cookies (my daughter favourite). Nothing beat freshly baked cookies for the holiday.

Wishing you joyful Christmas wherever you are.
