As it’s Halloween season, it seemed only right to do a bit of seasonal baking! Of course I always do, whether it’s shortbread, or cake! This year I thought I’d make some scary good chocolate cupcakes! Just to do something a little bit different!
The biggest change here was the frosting, which wasn’t remotely complicated!
I look forward to visiting the local Christmas market here in Truro every year; it’s always great fun and a great chance to see some wonderful handmade products made in Cornwall. I always try to do a bit of my Christmas shopping here; and there are usually some cheeky samples to enjoy too!
While I was having a wander, I thought I’d take some photos of some of the brilliant handmade products around the market! There were SO many stalls I didn’t get a chance to take photos of; as it was extremely busy, but here are a few things I loved!
The fun of posting about Christmas is that you can share things that go on at home; some things happen way before December though. So I thought I would share what we’ve been up to before Christmas. Truro City of Light is a great local event.
I did share “live” on my Instagram stories at the time on November 21st, which is a great reason to follow me elsewhere! But I really wanted to write a post and share some photos!
I love making a Christmas Hamper, it’s a versatile, fun gift to put together and you can really make them bespoke for who you’re gifting them to! I thought I’d share one of mine with you to get you inspired!
Are you looking for a last-minute gift idea, or one that you can plan ahead for? Hampers are suitable for so many occasions, and here’s one I made up for family this Christmas.
In this post I’ll share some ideas for creating a wrapped hamper with treats or small gifts. I have a great love of wrapping my presents with a particular colour scheme every year, and it’s not uncommon for me to send “mini hampers” filled with goodies to family for Christmas.
I thought I’d share some photos of a wrapped hamper I have sent, to show that there are different ways to wrap and send gifts, at Christmas, or any other time of year!
