Simple Chocolate Bouquet

This is a simple bouquet…great one to begin with. What we’ve used here are chocolates with individual wrappings. That makes the job much easier.

Cinnamon Rolls

This is a really simple, easy-to-make tea-time treat. If baked in a round cake tin, these can be taken out and served on a cake stand too, making it really presentable. Though many like this with a drizzle of icing, I prefer these plain as these have just the right amount of sweetness. Of course, [...]

Crunchy Christmas Biscuits

This is similar to the Christmas Nankhatai recipe, only that it has a lovely crunch (more like a biscuit than a cookie) and that the tutti-frutti is mixed with the dough rather than just decorating the nankhatai on the top.

Calla Lily Bouquet

I really enjoyed making this one. It doesn’t take too long and looks really pretty. These are simple Calla Lilies made from Duplex paper. The duplex paper used here had two shades of yellow. However, the ones with yellow one side and white on the other also look very pretty. The basic shape of the [...]

KulKuls (Goan Christmas Sweet)

Christmas in incomplete in a Goan household without the traditional Kulkuls.
