The Night Before Christmas

Happy Christmas Eve, everyone! ๐ŸŽ„โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซโค๏ธโค๏ธ Itโ€™s so nice to be back home in the holiday, isnโ€™t it? (I certainly am, since I am posting this whilst setting up a bath lol! ๐Ÿ›€)

Hope you all are enjoying your holiday, and I am sorry if this post dampens the festive mood for you but I have thought long and hard before writing this… My break didnโ€™t start off well when I found out three days ago that my family home was broken into. Losing valuables was one thing but I am just glad that no-one was hurt. However, I am upset by the fact that someone feels they have the rights to violate the place that holds so much happy memories to me. Here I am, a few days later, taking a picture of this cake at the exact same spot where it was broken into… I still feel a little uneasy around the house, but hopefully over time it will heal. โค๏ธ Though I am not going to let this stops me celebrating Christmas with a smile on my face! ๐Ÿ˜Š

So happy with how this cake turns out โ€˜cause Iโ€™ve never done something like this before! The cake is just a simple vanilla sponge covered with a smooth whipped cream, and topped with flakes of chocolate. However, the iced biscuits are actually shortbreads as my family and I are not particularly fond of gingerbread, so I made a break away from the tradition lol. ๐Ÿ˜› (A tip: Make sure to always rest the shaped biscuits in the fridge or freezer before baking. This is to prevent the butter from melting too fast during baking so that the biscuits donโ€™t lose the shapes you probably spent some time painstakingly trying to cut out! ๐Ÿ˜‚)

Canโ€™t wait to be binge-watching Christmas TV all day tomorrow! Merry Christmas and best wishes to you all! ๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽŠ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
