I have tried over the years to incorporate a little festive cheer into my household so that the day doesn't pass unnoticed. We had a Roast Dinner, baked some cookies with the kids, decorated the Christmas Tree and watch a favourite Holiday movie. This year I choose Elf. I remember the first time I saw it, my little niece wanted to sleep over at my flat so we went to Blockbuster and I let her choose a movie. I could have never anticipated the pure joy and laughter that movie would bring to our evening. It has remained one of my all time favorites. So this year we curled up to watch Elf on Thanksgiving night.
It was my Daughters school Christmas Fete the following weekend and her class was sponsoring the baking stall so I decided to make some Elf inspired Cupcakes. I found this amazing little tutorial by Victorious Cupcakes with step by step instructions. I love that even though I followed the same steps for each cupcake, the subtle differences gave each Elf his own little personality and character. They where a hit at the fete and so easy to do. If you fancy having a go you can find the tutorial here.
Elf funniest moments :)
