Orange ginger Honey Cakes (Mini cakes de jengibre y miel)

 






How are you? I hope all of you are Ok

 This is the most complicated but beautiful time of the year.


I adore Christmas. We have also been decorating the house, El Dito (my son) assembled the tree and Esperanza put lights around the house.

How wonderful when your kids start doing these things and because they want to.


I bring a cute and simple recipe for Christmas to give or enjoy:

Orange ginger honey cakes

  3. Gloria, It's easy to love individual cakes when they feature orange, ginger and honey! Plus I love your decorative presentation... We recently had some honey infused oatmeal raisin cookies. Honey is a great ingredient! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
