Christmas Cookies! Most all of us love to eat Christmas cookies! And many of us make baking Christmas cookies an important part of our holiday celebrations. I am no exception!!!

Happy Twelfth Night!

As has become my recent tradition - I am celebrating with a brand new (to me), unusual cake! Grape Cake!

Many countries around the world celebrate December 5th-6th with special cakes. Loving the idea - I have borrowed the tradition! (You can find links to special cakes enjoyed in previous years near the end of the post.)
