Ugly Christmas Sweaters

So there’s this thing about Christmas sweaters right? They just have to be ugly. And nowadays its become like a thing that the uglier your Christmas sweater, the cooler it is. (Don’t ask me how? why? what?) So much so that its become almost an integral part of Christmas. So obviously it had to be…

Photobooth Props

Its that time of the year where you either have to attend a bunch of festive parties or if nothing else throw one. Its become very common nowadays to have a table filled with props to take photos made with paper, or silly hats, caps, fake beards, moustaches, or even random sayings. I think having…

Snacks for Santa…

There’s somewhat of a tradition on Christmas Eve. You leave all the Christmas lights on, set some present under the tree and place a plate of cookies and milk for Santa to eat. This time, however, why not try leaving him some chocolate chip cookies, some milk and even some carrots for the reindeers. Confused…

Christmas in the Heat

I know I’ve said it before, but it isn’t cold everywhere in India during this time of the year. It’s actually pretty hot, like 30C hot. So naturally while creating this calendar I had to come up with a way of incorporating heat into these cookies.  I decided to go all out and do a…

Dairy Free Vanilla Ice Cream

When I started brainstorming for this collaboration with Pranita, I found a lot of dairy-free ice cream recipes, and it had reached the point where I wasn’t unable to choose just one flavour myself. So I sent a list to Pranita, and she picked two. The chocolate one, and this vanilla one. We had initially…

Black Cat Mini Cake

So just like I did the mummy cake yesterday, I decided to a spooky black cat one. This cake is super simple, all you need is a bit of fondant for the cat. Otherwise its all buttercream. Everything in this cake is basically the same. I tinted the buttercream a bright orange and sprinkled some…

Mummy Mini Cake

In my first year of college, we celebrated Halloween. We all got super excited and planned proper costumes, scary or not. I dressed up as Super Mario, my friend as Rosie the Riveter. We had covered the campus in scary decorations and had planned super fun activities all day. In the evening was the costume…

Vanilla Ice Cream

To start off the week of the icies, I thought I’d do a simple vanilla ice cream. Its summer and the perfect thing to cool you down in the heat. This recipe is from the Leiths Technique Bible. I haven’t adapted it or made any changes. It’s as is. The only difference is the churning…
