Don't Look now.... Panettone and some Zany fun!

Good morning and Merry Christmas to you all friends and visitors!

YAY!!! its Christmas day and I think its gonna be a brilliant one!

For my Breakfast I am going to have.... something I have baked..
I have had some baking days, over the last few weeks... I Love those..
Here are the things I made for this years holidays.

Gingerbread Men



and yesterday I made a Panettone

I made one last year but it was not that good...
after watching The Great British Bake Off
and seeing Paul Hollywood’s version of panettone, I decided to give it another go and I have to say its a lovely recipe.

Here is the link

and I can not wait to cut into it this morning!

I also made some cookies.

So now you are hungry! sorry about this but I also have a fun challenge for you too!
I know its Christmas day but its a super fun challenge and its starting at

and were up to your ears in stress about creating your cards at the last minute then you need to come join us if you don't already!
It is our last challenge of the year...and we've reached the last letter of the alphabet Z
