I bought these "ice cube" candle holders from the charity shop and I let Alexa decorate them with some christmas stickers

didn't she do a good job, all we need now is some  candles to go in them.

As soon as she saw the bag of cookie cutters I'd bought for her she wanted to bake, they are from the Jamie Oliver range I can just see him and Jules having fun baking with their girls.

So  out come the pastry and flour and currants and she spent an hour making  the gingerbread man, tree, bell and rudolph and decorating them with  the currants, of which I seem to have lost the picture!!

Nigella eat your heart out!!

Finally we made these smartie cakes, one each for all of us.

Does anyone know where I can get some tall skinny candles to go in the candle holders???

Love Lucey xx
