And the theme of this year's Christmas treats is......

...Chocolate and Cherries? I suppose so, considering the fact that I made 3 chocolate cherry cakes!

The first one consisted of two of the cakes as it was two tiers. This was for my friend to take to his family Christmas celebration. :)

Tada! In case you can't tell, I love taking side shots of my cakes :D
Cake #3! This one was a bit less grandiose-- but still quite delicious! teeheehee.
Moving past chocolate and cherries (on second thought, keep the chocolate!), here we have chocolate swirled cheezecakes! woohoo. I love the little chocolate cages!
And last but not least, the annual rugelach! This year's flavor is blackberry cinnamon pecan. Hooray!
I know this isn't food, but I had to post pics of these anyway because HELLO I got Christmas flowers!!!! From the same friend that now has the cake =)
I is a happy child :)

** I promise I'll get around to posting recipes for everything that you guys comment on, like the crackers from Thanksgiving (EEEOOPS.) yeah. Thanks to all my faithful friends who still visit! I'm sorry that I've taken such a long hiatus! I'm sorry to say that I'll be taking another hiatus for a little while because I'M GOING TO TEXAS!!!! woohoooo!!! :D so see you guys in a bit!**

In the meadow, er.... kitchen, we can build a snowman!

Oh how I love Christmas and the extra festivities! One tradition I have is baking 3D themed cakes, be it a Christmas tree or this snowman (Don't you love how the plate says"we can build a snowman"?):

Mr. Snowman had a rather extensive photo shoot. To spare you from the bajillion pictures I took, here's a sample:
Though Mr. Snowman enjoyed his photo shoot in our high school breezeway, he really, in all actuality, longed to be outside.
Fortunately, he found friends to spare him from his loneliness and keep him company. (Tito has a new friend! Singing Snoopy and Woodstock!)
Together they longed for the outdoors.
