It's that time of year again....The Christmas fair at my local church. Two year ago I joined the church drama/theatre group, and last year was my first visit to the fair and helping them raise funds. Since I decorate cakes I made a cake for the 'Guess The Weight Of The Cake' , I enjoyed it so much I offered to help this year too. A friend always likes to bake the fruitcake, and I choose to do the decorating, she couldn't make it to the fair this year, but still made the cake....
The fair was on the 30 Nov and I spent the previous week doing the decorations.... I thought I would share with you how it turned out.
I also helped set up the day before, and what a day! Lots of goodies there to buy, I did treat myself to a book and bought my mum a cross stitch frame! And my dad got some D.I.Y books! ha,ha
Cookies for Santa..
A visit from Santa.. was my idea behind the cake. When as a child, you leave cookies or mince with pies a glass of milk and maybe a carrot for Rudolph. Santa hop's down the chimney reads your letter takes a bite and back up the chimney into the night.....
Straight away I had cookies in mind, and thought about using regular size cookie cutters.The thing is when I think of cake I always imagine the cake to be huge like 12inch! But of course the cake was a lot smaller 8 inch so my cookie cutters had to shrink!!
I managed to find tiny cutters and that is what I used. The decorations were cut out, iced with royal icing jut like regular cookies.(With a sprinkle of edible glitter on the snowflake) I decided to put them on a sugar plate and make a letter to Santa...it reads
Enjoy the cookies!
Happy Christmas xxx
