Christmas has been a wonderful celebration with my whole family. After 10 years my mum and my sister made it to be here with us and knowing my mum’s sweet tooth, I prepared a dessert table full of yummy treats.
This year I was particularly obsessed to do something with golden colours therefore I used a gorgeous shiny golden table runner and various golden decorations from cupcake holders to Christmas stars to create a special Christmas dessert table.
In Italy this is the time of the year when we eat quite a lot of Torrone which is the Italian nougat made of honey, sugar, egg white, toasted almonds and other nuts. I decided to create a nougat cupcake and I was suprised no one had thought to make one before. So I just made the recipe up combining all ingredients that create the typical italian torrone taste.
Christmas is not Christmas without Panettone! I made this gorgeous dessert the day before and then wrapped it in cling film to keep its freshness for the next day.
I could not wait to make these! White chocolate covered Oreos are just wow!
It literally took me ages to make these decorated cookies but I was quite pleased with the final result and I used them as place cards on our Christmas table.
Ferrero rocher.. because you always needs a bit of chocolate!
Simple vanilla soft cookies filled with marmalade
Stack of star cookies, simple but pretty!
We could not find our wooden Nativity in our attic so last minute I ordered specific cookie cutters and made a Nativitiy out of gingerbread cookies.
Obviously most of these dessert didn’t make it to the New Year so it’s time to bake again! Happy New Year everyone!
