Incredible Edible Ways To Decorate Your Home This Christmas

Incredible Edible Ways To Decorate Your Home This Christmas

You donít need to spend a fortune on expensive decorations to make your home look and
smell beautiful this festive season. With a few supplies and a little bit of time, you can create
wonderful ornaments, gifts and decorations that all your family and friends will enjoy.

Making edible gifts and decorations is the perfect way to relax and unwind on a winter evening.
Getting the children involved is also a lovely way for the family to spend time together.

Edible Tree Decorations

These beautiful Christmas tree baubles are
edible biscuits, decorated with jewel coloured
royal icing. You will need a selection of
Christmas cookie cutters and some ribbon, but
once your biscuits are cooked and cooled you
can go crazy and decorate them in as many
colours and designs as you want. The recipe
and method for these biscuits is here.

Cupcake In A Jar Gift

Everyone knows here at Windsor Cake Craft we are huge fans
of cupcakes and with this in mind, we couldn't give you our
favourite Christmas ideas without including a cupcake.

This cupcake in a jar idea is ideal as a good stocking
filler for someone who enjoys baking but also as a Christmas
raffle prize at a charity or fund raising event.

Use a jar big enough to fit all the
ingredients, some festive cupcake
cases
and some cupcake decorations
(wrapped in a plastic bag).
Festive ribbon wrapped around
the jar to attach the wooden spoon
is the perfect finishing touch.
Go here for the recipe and instructions.

Christmas Truffles

Do you want to give someone a
handmade Christmas gift but can't face
knitting a scarf, then homemade chocolate
truffles could be the ideal solution. This truffle
recipe
from Gordon Ramsey can be adapted to suit
any taste from cool mint to hot chilli or from zesty
orange to boozy brandy.

Present your gift beautifully packaged with a
festive ribbon and your own personal message.

Edible Advent Calendar

We all remember having an advent calendar as a child, the
excitement of opening the little door every day, or perhaps
you had a candle with numbers down the side and you
burned the candle a little each day. If you love baking
then it makes sense to bake your own advent calendar.
It's really very simple. Make 24 biscuits, attach a
short length of ribbon, decorate each biscuit with a
different number and hang them up. How you
decorate them is entirely up to you, depending
on the finished result you are going for use
either royal icing or fondant icing.
Remember, whatever you use is going to
be hung up for nearly a month so
something like butter icing isn't going
to last that long. Use this tutorial as
a guide.

Gingerbread House

A gingerbread house makes an amazing table decoration for
the festive season. If you have children this is the perfect
project in which to get hem involved and they can go as OTT
with the decoration as they want. You'll need icing sugar to
hold everything together (mix with water to make royal
icing) as well as to provide the snow covered roof.
Watch this video for full instructions.

Christmas Cake

How you decorate your Christmas cake is
limited only by your imagination and skill
level. If you want to try your hand at
something different this year a cake †
decorating class
could be just what you
are looking for. Learn new cake ††
