And here we are a few days from Christmas.
Always for Christmas is the same for more than one starts with time the days fly.
I wanted to make a recipe (Christmas's recipe)) before Christmas Eve.
And then the recipes that I will make for Christmas day will come.
Here has been crazy not only for many things some of you know that here( Southern hemisphere) is summer and has been very hot.
I would love to live in these days in the Northern Hemisphere.
Good but it's where one lives. In between I made marmalade of apricots and strawberries.
And you know Im caring my mom, I thank you when you ask me about her, it's fine but very fragile. I hope she gets up tomorrow andfor Christmas maybe she will be better to wake up. She gets tired so much.
Ok now the recipe! this recipe has enchanted everyone and that the taste of spices is felt in the cupcake.
I made a lighter glasse with cream cheese and it was very good. The ornaments of the little gingerbread men are bought at Amazon. but you can garnish with some sprinkles and will be fine.
I wish you all a beautiful and blessed Christmas.
