Edible gifts .... Hand made by you. " What's not to love "!!!

Edible Gifts are always welcome by all during the festive season and even more so if they have been hand made with love by the giver. Here is my selection of edible gifts for you to make , all are achievable by the most inexperienced cook and as long as you use quality ingredients, they will taste fantastic too.Trawl the shops, the Internet if you prefer, for pretty wrappings, papers, ribbons and boxes or even the odd antique Cup and saucer wrapped up in cellophane. The most basic can be topped and dressed up to look fabulous.
Full fill your artistic urges with the millions of combinations and change them to go with moods and fashion. I definitely like to keep my colour schemes in tune with what's on the catwalk.


Lift your spirit up with a batch of these sweet little gems. They can be topped and dressed to look like Xmas baubles and they will taste fantastic too.They can be both sweet or savoury. What give Macarons their flavour, apart from the shells of course is mostly the fillings ( ganache) and the shells freezes really well too.


These festive cookies, traditionally made for Christmas are packed with a luxurious medley of fruits and nuts. I am using flaked almonds,raisins,cranberries,cherries, candied orange peel and diced stem ginger, but the choice is yours. I can only guarantee that your guests won't be able to resist these jewelled treats.


Chocolate gives pleasure, it is food for the soul and is very sensuous bu it's very nature. It is intended to arouse passion and be provocative and impress your dinner guests with a Chocolate pop with coffee.
