Celebrating Twelfth Night with Two Special Cakes Again!

P1130539

Tomorrow is again Twelfth Night - The 12th Day of Christmas and time again for a special cake!

If you missed celebrating Twelfth Night with me last year, pop over for a few lovely recipes - good contenders all for a final celebration of Christmas and the end of the season.

I don't know exactly why we don't celebrate the 12 Days of Christmas in America. Must research! I do think we are missing out big time!

This period from Christmas Day to December 6th is celebrated by many cultures all over the world - mostly by enjoying the company and fellowship of friends and family. AND Twelfth Night especially is celebrated with a special cake!

To continue my tradition begun last year of baking a special cake for Twelfth Night, I made a Clementine Cake!

Joanie introduced me to Clementine Cake last February but by then Clementines had completely disappeared from the local markets. I printed out Nigella's recipe (which Joanie had used) and saved it for Twelfth Night 2012!

Joanie of course put beautiful powdered sugar hearts on her cake - go see how pretty it is!

If you are into almond cakes - you will love this one! My sweetie and I have been eating it for dessert, evening snacks AND breakfast! (FYI it is gluten free)

It's not even Twelfth night and the cake is gone! But that is OK because........look at this decadent "cake" I just found on Mary and Patch - Cadeau de Noël!

Mary has been experimenting and developing her version of Triple Chocolate Truffle for several years and is kindly sharing the recipe as a Christmas gift to all of us! How can anyone refuse such a gift! Butter, chocolate, eggs and sugar. OMG.

Again, this year - we will be celebrating with TWO cakes for Twelfth Night!

How about YOU?  Have I convinced anyone out there to adopt this lovely tradition and bake a cake for Twelfth Night? I hope! I hope! I hope!

You are So smart to always

You are So smart to always plan for the following year. We have a whole bowl of Clementines right now, but you're right.. they won't be around long!

I think Twelfth night is intriguing... Especially if it has its own cake!

Love that cake!!

Love that cake!!
