Fun Christmas Baking!

Monday, 22 December 2014

This is us excited about baking until we actually started to bake. Here we go:

Here is our baking ingredients we used for our "Christmas Log Cake"

Result:

Not good. We kinda misread the instructions and added too much salt so it just tasted like well.. salt. It was also very thin and as we started to roll it all just crumbled to pretty much nothing. We would like to say this is surprising but it is us.Which leads us to this face:

We like to call it the "lets pretend we really enjoyed our log cake and didn't mess it up" look. 
Side note: We tricked family members into trying this cake saying it was great and well the faces that they made were priceless! We are cruel :)

This next one really didn't require any baking so we redeemed ourselves with this lovely parfait.

Result:

This one was VERY good. Way better than that pittyful Christmas log cake.
For this we used red and green fruit for the lovely colors of Christmas! :)

We promised ourself to do more baking so we can improve! Anyone else have any Christmas baking fails?
PS, more Christmas sweaters for ya! Gotta love um!
