There’s guaranteed to be something for everyone here from gingerbread bakes perfect for doing with the kids to ambitious Christmas cakes and puddings.

Letters To Santa Biscuits


These letters to Santa biscuits are perfect for getting the kids involved in the kitchen this Christmas. Though it may require a steadier hand to pipe on the writing clearly, after all, we wouldn’t want these little letters getting lost in the North Pole post!
