Here is a very delicious recipe for simple-to-make shortbead. This is a great recipe your guests to enjoy at New Year.We hope you all enjoy it!

shortbread01

Ingredients

  • 300g softened butter
  • 140g golden caster sugar (plus 4 tbsp)
  • 300g plain flour
  • 140g rice flour
  • pinch of salt

Method

  1. Place the butter and 140g sugar in a food processor and mix until smooth.
  2. Tip in both the plain flour and the rice flour, with a pinch of salt, then mix until it all comes together.
  3. Using your hands, roughly spread the mixture out in a 20x30cm (8×12″) baking tray. Cover with cling film and smooth over until there are no wrinkles. Place in the fridge, uncooked, for at least 30 mins.
  4. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas 4. Remove cling film, then lightly mark the shortbread all over with a fork.
  5. Sprinkle the remaining sugar over the shortbread, then bake for 20-25 mins.
  6. Leave to cool in the tin, then cut into 24 thin slices.
  7. The shortbread will keep in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

A great idea for this time of year, is to make up the dough but instead of baking it, roll it into sausage shapes. Then, wrap it in baking parchment, tie it off with a ribbon and give it to friends/family as a gift. Ready to bake shortbread-yummy!

Christmas is almost here! Since it’s only a week tomorrow ’til Santa comes, here at Cake-Cetera we’ve been looking up some great ideas for Christmas cupcakes. Cupcakes are always in demand at this time of year and these ideas are easy enough for the kids to help out!

Strawberry Santa Hat

These cupcakes are so easy to do, and yet look great when they’re finished. All you have to do is put a strawberry on top of your iced cupcake, and decorate it with white buttercream and some sprinkles if you fancy. Easy peasy!

Santa In The Chimney

This one is a wee bit trickier than the strawberry cupcake but the kids (and adults) will love it. After icing your cupcake as usual, mess up your icing a little with a knife, to make it look like snow. Then, using ready to roll icing (sugarpaste/fondant), make little bricks and set them aside to dry out a little. You can then go on to make Santa’s legs and feet. Once your sugarpaste has hardened a little, you can start putting the bricks on your cupcakes (stick them together with some buttercream). Then all you have to do is put Santa’s legs in the chimney and put a little bit more ‘snow’ down.

Cut-Outs

If you want a cupcake that’s more creative than a strawberry but not as tricky as the chimney, then cut-out decorations are for you. Simply roll out your sugarpaste, and cut out the shape using a cutter or template! You can then add it to your cupcake and decorate it as you please.

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and let us see the pictures of all your Christmas baking! x
