Bit late with the pictures of Christmas goodies!

Ive been so lazy this year getting my pictures of some of the Christmas edible goodies up!  Paul made 730 hand made filled chocolates this year, so many that we couldnt fit all of them on the table I use to take photos on!  We still have a little tub left over too.
Here they are filling the table
and some pretty close ups
Made some new packaging for them this year too, Bandit Chef rides again!
The “this year with love” part of the text drew much hilarity as to what the emotion would be for next year or for previous years, “spleen” got a lot of votes…..well it got mine, its such a good word.
and finally our traditional iced Christmas cake, last year I branched out a bit from the usual Christmas stuff and went with “where the wild things are”, so I thought I might do that again and decided we would have a Totoro Christmas!
Merry Christmas to you all and have a Happy New Year as well.

    I was just going through some bookmarks and re-found your blog. This Totoro cake is wonderful! How did you do it? What did you use to make the little figures? Fondant? I have a poster on my wall here at work that my daughter painted of Totoro, so this cake would be very special for us to make together!
    Thanks – Penny

    I am trying to think what its called, moulding paste? Something like that, its sort of the step beyond fondant and sets completely rock hard. They use it to make all those lovely icing flowers you see and most cake decorating stores have it. The icing for the cake is fondant, you knead it for ten minutes then roll it out and place it over the cake in a sheet. The recipe for that is from the Dehlia Smith Christmas cookbook. Have fun together.
