A few weeks ago i was asked to participate in an Artisan Christmas Fair...
Cakes and Biscuits with a Christmas theme.
So i set too thinking amidst other orders as to what colour theme i would go with - traditional Red, Green and White or something different.....hmmmmmmmmm.... would people/customers expect traditional or be surprised by perhaps a Winter Theme, considering our hot festive Season ?
Winter it shall be - i decided.
So i made my Mini Brandy Fruit Cakes - with their 13 ingrediants - a jolly good splash - make that 3 good splashes of Brandy - a few drops of lemon juice and then a mixture of Christmas spices.
Allowing them to mature for a few weeks - i set too and decorated....
The Christmas Biscuits were a Honey and Orange Zest recipe - again adding a few Christmas spices.
Decorated in white...... and snowflakes for that *winter* touch.
Popped into cellophane bags and tiered with white ribbons.
The Fair was a wonderful success - and i was more than happy with the response from my customers...... yes, the Winter theme of pale blue and white snowflakes was a great choice.
I just love how i turned the wooden tree i bought from Infancy into a wooden Christmas tree - available at - http://www.infancy.com.au/store/pc/home.asp it added that Christmas touch - with the clear baubles encased around the pale blue and white ribbons.
I also made pale blue fondant snowflakes and adhered them using sugar glue.
