DAY 24: My first gingerbread house!


I hope you are spending a lovely day with your families and friends!

I made my very first gingerbread house! I wanted to do one for so long and this year I finally made one. I would love to tell that it was super easy to make it, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. It took me hours, endless batches of icing and I was on the verge of throwing everything away when my house collapsed for the fifth time.

The combination of orange and cranberry is delicious for these loaf cakes. The oranges gives it that extra sweetness while the cranberries bring some tartness to it. The recipe is super easy to make and great if you need to whip something up very quickly for some spontaneous guests.

DAY 20: Eggnog Bundt Cake

Eggnog cake is a simple yet delicious dessert for the holiday season. I generally don’t like to make bundt cakes. There is always the fear that the cake won’t come out of the tin. But this time I made sure to grease every tiny corner of the tin and it came out very easily. The tedious greasing is definitely worth it, as the bundt shape makes the eggnog cake even more appealing.
