Food Ramblings

My Food and Drink Christmas pressies

Santa was very kind to me this year by bringing me lots of lovely things to eat or bake, I felt very lucky indeed.

Breadmaker
I am learning to make my bread by hand and bake it in the oven but there is also a good use for a breadmaker to, so I asked my parents for one for Christmas.
They’ve bought me a really good Morphy Richards one so now we can easily bake our own bread in 3 hours, no matter how little time we have.

Attica Tea
TeaI had this present from my sister and brother in law and its fab. I’ve never seen a tea cafetier before but I don’t know why as it makes the nicest tasting tea, and makes me feel very posh.
My brother in law worked in a tea room for a while so they allowed them to buy one for me.
Everyone knows that I am a huge tea monster and my favourite is Earl Grey with milk. Unfortunately, since I’ve been pregnant and because I’m feeding my daughter I can only have one or two cups of tea with caffeine in, so if I’m going to have one then its got to be a good one.

They also bought me a HUGE jar of Baci Di Dama cookies from Carluccio’s. Yummy.

 

Cupcake cups

'Cup'Cakes

Following on from my ‘i love tea’ theme, I was bought these fab silicon cupcake cups from my other brother in law. I decided to bake some cupcakes for new year and everyone was quite excited by the look of these as they were so cute.

  1. What a nice little haul! I have been itching for some of those adorable silicone tea cup cupcake cups. Did they work well? I’m always worried with anything that doesn’t go in an actual cupcake pan for support.

    1. They held their shape really well but I did also put a cupcake case inside.
      Because they hold a standard size, you could bake the cupcakes and then drop them in afterwards, if you wanted to.

      They did look very cute 🙂
