Merry Christmas Eve

Emily and I have spent most of Christmas Eve in the kitchen - we were about half way through when this picture was taken....the flour covering got worse!

We made a scrummy looking orange/chocolate explosion sponge cake to be our main Christmas cake

and Emily's also made florentines, chocolate caramel slices and chocolate shortbread slices as gifts. We were going to make chocolate museli slices too, but that was pushing it a bit for one baking session!!

And so, it's now dark and we're heading into the evening. We'll be playing some games this evening and then it's off to bed for a certain someone still young and un-jaded enough, thank goodness, to want to listen for sleigh bells tonight :-)))

Merry Christmas to all who read this. I hope you have a wonderful, memory filled family day!
