How is it already February 11th?!
Seriously, this year is slipping by and it just started. Will catch you up on my Christmas baking before it becomes grossly late/it already is grossly late.
As I said before I had two types of orders for Christmas this year. The first type was client orders, which we went through last post. The second type of order was my order. Which just meant I made it really hard on myself and tried to get a ridiculous amount of stuff done in a short amount of time while trying to navigate my closet of a kitchen.
So when I first started baking in high school, it was because I wanted to give my friends holiday gifts. This tradition hasn’t changed after all these years. Before I’d put a bunch of cookies in a nondescript paper bag and hand them out to friends, but this year I decided to get all fancy with Christmas themed plastic bags. Another tradition that hasn’t changed since high school is my inability to understand how much work making 6 different types of cookies, plus cupcakes, would be. But oh well, it all got done in the end.
First the cookies: White Chocolate Pistachio Oatmeal Cookies, Cream Cheese Peppermint Cookies, Gingerbread Truffles, Cranberry Shortbread, Gluten Free Salted Chocolate Cookies and Decorated Sugar Cookies.
And here they are all together, and in their cute little bags.
I also ended up making cupcakes for my Aunt’s holiday party, which really just meant I used up some extra cupcakes from a couple an order and used some fancy sprinkles/toppers. Which is fun and easy enough.
LOOK AT THOSE FREAKING GINGERBREAD MEN SPRINKLES
I also had a couple custom orders for my boyfriend’s family. I honestly had no idea what to get them, so I decided to decorate some cookies according to their interests.
The palette was for an artist, and the plane was for a handy man (of course he had to put it together).
Merry (very late) Christmas everyone!
