Do It Yourself Christmas

Christmas is this special time of year when I usually spend more time in the kitchen. I don’t mind it since cooking and baking is and will definitely be one of my hobbies like forever. I have a few other hobbies such as video games and fashion for example, but baking and cooking definitely make the top of the list. I haven’t started any Christmas baking yet, but it is going to change soon as I am planning to have DIY Christmas this year.

It never ceases to amaze me how many things you can actually do yourself instead of just buying them in a store. For example, look at the picture included in this post. I can guarantee you that you aren’t going to find anything quite like it in any store. The reason? You can only do such cakes yourself and that’s the beauty of it. You get to be creative, you sit down in your kitchen and you start devising some of the most original cakes the world has ever seen. Just look at those santas, and you should know precisely what I am talking about here.

Do-it-yourself cakes are great to make with kids. My daughter Emmy just loves to bake. She usually takes a piece of dough in her little hand and then transforms it into funny shapes. She gets very dirty as well, but I allow her to create little mess every time we bake. I don’t mind it as long as after the baking session everything returns back to normal again.
