One of my absolute favorite Christmas traditions is putting up Christmas lights! Whether it’s on the tree or in different rooms, I love pulling out the strands, checking the bulbs, and stringing them into place. The best part is when you plug them in and see them shine brightly for the first time. That’s where I got the inspiration to create the tutorial for these Christmas Light Cakes!
These Christmas Light Cakes are so fun and festive looking. Plus, they’re pretty simple to make. You just need a 13×9 cake, buttercream, a little bit of food coloring, and your favorite sprinkles. You won’t believe how sparkly they look once you add the colorful sprinkles!
Somehow Christmas is only five days away. I don’t know where the rest of December went, but I’m trying to pack in as many Christmas-y things in before the big day arrives. One of those fun things involves making these fun Christmas Tree Hand Pies. I even have a template you can use if you don’t have a Christmas tree cookie cutter. 🎄
Cranberry and orange are two classic Christmas flavors, and they make for a sweet, yet tangy filling. Add a little bit of icing to each hand pie and you’ve got yourself some fancy, decorated trees.
There are a lot of classic holiday desserts out there, but one of my favorite things to make every year is gingerbread cookies. Even though they can be fun to decorate, I’m all for a really good plain gingerbread cookie. It’s crisp around the edges, yet chewy in the middle, and it makes the whole house smell like ginger and molasses.
