Some of my fondest memories of Christmas as a child revolve around either family or food. I remember baking with my Mum over the Christmas holidays, helping in the kitchen on Christmas day along with all of those smells and feelings that go with a busy kitchen over Christmas.
This year, Whitworths have put together an e-book that is set to inspire you to get together in the kitchen too – baking up all sorts of festive treats in the lead up to Christmas. But, baking isn’t just about making a cake and then eating it. It’s about baking a cake and sharing it – giving it as a gift or taking it with you when visiting friends and family over Christmas.
You can read along with The Cake that made Christmas in the video below:
Reading this book with the children gave me such a lovely warm feeling inside and it really sums up the essence of Christmas. Christmas shouldn’t be about expensive gifts and shiny new things – it should be about making people happy and spending it with those closest to you – and baking someone happy gives you the best of both worlds.
Whitworths have made it so that not only can you see their lovely book in the video above but you can also read their e-book online as well as download a pdf version for yourself too. The Cake that Made Christmas has the very special cake recipe in the bake so you can make the exact cake that features in the book at home.
This Christmas why you don’t you bake someone happy and bake something to share with the people you love? I’m going to be getting in the kitchen with LP and Little Man to create something we can share with family over Christmas – and there’s nothing like the look on the children’s faces when they share a batch of homemade treats with those that they love the most.
