My Christmas sweets





This was the first year we were celebrating Christmas away from Family & friends. But that didn't stop me from preparing Christmas sweets which has been a tradition in our family.So these are few of the sweets I made this Christmas - Cherry Knobs, Fruit Cake, Coconut Cake, Date Rolls, KulKuls & of course my all time favorite Marzipan's!! I molded the marzipan's into carrots, plums, peaches, pears, cherries, watermelons, mangoes, oranges, pumpkins, peas, pineapples, strawberry's, rasberry's & also a christmas tree that I made using a cookie cutter ;-)

Tx JudeCreations & Homecooked for having appreciated my Christmas sweets.I will surely take time out to share the recipes with you all.

Homecooked - the recipe that I use to make kulkuls is the same as that for shankarpali :-) Its just that instead to shaping it into diamonds I use the kulkul form to make kulkuls.
