~ Snowman on a stick~

Hello all, hope you had a wonderful christmas .
We had so much fun . Our celebrations started
with a small family baking - lil one & I tossed
the fruits in freshly squeezed orange juice & baked
a large aromatic n fruit loaded Christmas cake .
The tiny marshmallow snowmen on stick & the
packet of homemade chocolates in the shape of
jingle bell & stars were a great hit at the kids party !!
Cute angels with little snowman in hand & prettiest
smiles added much more joy to the holiday season.
Although its a bit tough to find marshmallows in the
local market here but I luckily spotted some large packs
at a candy shop & went ahead with the idea. Last but not the
least a very sp thanks to my dear friend Sailaja for sending
me over the wonderful food markers - they truly broaden
my creative food horizon !!!!
