Merry Christmas!

Wishing all who celebrate a very Merry Christmas! It's coming to an end here in Australia, and we're full up on goodies....

We started off with cinnamon rolls for breakfast - rapidly becoming a tradition with their second appearance...

...alongside a much older tradition, my mother's Italian Christmas doughnuts.

The finale to Christmas lunch was my first-ever attempt at a traditional bûche de Noël; I made an all-chocolate version, decorated with meringue mushrooms, sugared cranberries, and rosemary sprigs.

And some sweet things out to finish off the meal and the day: Hershey's Kisses, sugared cranberries, chocolate-almond saltine toffee, and more meringues.

Hope your day is as full of good things as ours has been!

Hi Nancy, two rather belated questions - how on earth do you eat Christmas dinner after cinnamon scroll and doughnuts for breakfast :) and most importantly, where did you find cranberries in Canberra? I searched about six supermarkets and couldn’t even find frozen ones!
Happy New Year, and best wishes for a fantastic 2015!

@insearchofgoldenpudding.com Hi Beck! An even more belated response - I went easy on the breakfast offerings so that I'd have room for Yorkshire pudding and buche de Noel at dinner :). And I found big bags of frozen cranberries at Costco!

Happy New Year to you too!
