Tis the night before Christmas in Australia (yep, already) and I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the CC family. Thank you to all who have shared their pics, ideas, techniques and thoughts. A big thanks to Jackie and Heath for creating a place to hang out and for continuing to provide this fabulous site.
As usual I have left the family cake to last. The butter has softened rapidly, it is 37.C/98F in my part of the world. Not too bad, the outback is around 44.C/111.F! Thongs (flip flops), shorts and bbqs for us tomorrow! Our thoughts are with Darwin in top end of Oz, they are preparing for a cyclone. Tomorrow is the anniversary of Cyclone Tracey which devastated Darwin on Christmas day 37 year ago. Our thoughts are with them
On my bucket list experience a white Christmas.
Im off to find some boxes to refrigerate my cakes! Have a safe and happy Christmas and may the new year bring good fortune....and lots of cakes. Cheers.
Well hi, its Christmas Eve here in Missouri, 7 AM. Its cold as heck around 24 F burrrrrrr. Wish I could send you a White Christmas but no snow in our forecast. I want to thank everyone here also. It is such a great place to share, learn aand make new friends. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and everyone!
Health, Love & prosperity to all CCers and their families!
Over the years I have experienced both 80s and -0 F temp white Christmas days To this northener it is hard to really get into the Christmas spirit when it's 80+ degrees
May each and everyone on you wonderful, sharing, caring people have the most Blessed Christmas ever.
27 degrees and just a dusting of snow in Northern Indiana. Little chance for snow before next Wednesday. As far as White Christmas's are concerned, it is great song and fun If you are kid- as an adult not so much. Can be scary to drive in and a mess to clean up all the snow that gets tracked into the house. Oh yes, shoveling or blowing off sidewalks and driveways isn't great over forty.
merry christmas to all our cake central buddies. Can't imagine a warm Christmas having lived in midwest and southern Canada all my life. So what are most popular treats for Christmas in Australia and NZ??
Have to saw visiting Australia is one of my dreams... +
