Christmas for me, ever since I was born, has always involved at real Christmas tree. Until we get the tree into our house and it infuses it with its beautiful pine smell, I really cant get into the Christmas vibe. Now we have the tree, and I am in the Christmas mood!!
I had my last shift for the year yesterday, and I baked Christmas cupcakes for all my fellow nurses and our reception staff. I made two different flavours, Ginger Bread Cupcakes from here, and Milk & Cookies (Santa's Fave!) Cupcakes from my recipe book Crazy About Cupcakes.
The Ginger bread ones had cinnamon cream cheese frosting, and the Milk & Cookies one had Choc-Vanilla Frosting. Both flavours were very popular. Pity it was such a crazy busy shift to finish up on, but now I have two precious weeks off...and with my shiny new sewing machine sitting under the tree, I cant wait to start some new projects!
