It’s the time of year that turns our corner of the world into a sparkling white wonderland. I have to admit that I am not a fan of moving the pile of snow onto the bigger pile of snow, but that’s a small price to pay for what we get in return. I love the feel of the icy air on my face as I take my morning walk to the bakery. As I hurry around the hotel filling the cake case or bringing up a cake order, I look forward to getting stopped by someone with one of my boxes in their hands telling me how excited they are to bring goodies to someone’s house or share it with their family and friends. It reminds me of how lucky I am to be doing something I love, while making people happy.
On my brisk walk home, I stop at my Mom’s house. It reminds me where my love for baking came from. The smell of cookies being baked for holiday cookie trays fills the air and her face is a little rosier. I know it is not from the heat of the oven, but the joy of being busy and doing something she loves. So, grumble a little and get it over with. Shake your fist at the falling flakes. Then it’s time to embrace ole’ Man Winter and remember how much we love this time of year in our magical little part of the world.
To make you a little happier, we are doing both of our holiday favorites this December, Chocolate Peppermint and Sugar Cookie Tortes. Jim is creating a new treat, Rum Soaked Gingerbread Cheesecake.
Warm Wishes to You and Yours from all of us at The Landmark,
