I have been wanting to make Frosted Cranberries for a while, but just now getting around to doing it. They’re so pretty and sparkly – and so festive.
This is the first year I’ve made these, and they’re so EASY. I’ve had so many ideas for these pretty little things.
The first thing I did was to make frosted cranberry-infused vodka.
This vodka gets flavor and sweetness from both the fresh cranberries and the sugar that adorned them.
And how easy is that?
My daughter turned 21 a few days ago, so when she gets home for Christmas, I’m making a chocolate roulade cake and it will be adorned with these.
I’m SO excited – I just hope my non-baking ass doesn’t ruin it.
I cannot ruin her cake – it’s too important.
It’s not my very favorite, but I do bake some. I’m just definitely not a huge talent in that area.
I do have to say that my pretzels aren’t really half bad. Once I got used to making the pretzel dough I decided that I like making them.
Baking isn’t my favorite because it’s really an exact science. I like cooking because it is NOT an exact science. You can add a little of this and a dash of that, and before you know it you have something fantastic to eat.
It allows you to experiment, to play, and use creativity based on what you’re in the mood for or how you’re feeling. It’s actually therapeutic to me.
Annnnyyyyyy way – back to her cake.
Hopefully, the baking angels will be on both shoulders tomorrow and it will turn out beautifully, just like my daughter.
If you haven’t already, make these cranberries because everyone will love them and ask where they came from, or how you made them, if they’re edible, and all those fun crazy questions.
