…and the dining table?

No, we’re not talking about the tablecloth, napkins and silverware… Or rather, not just those!

Would you like to bring a little bit of Christmas straight to your plate, and create artwork to photograph and post on Instagram, and, better yet, make art your eyes and palate can gleefully feast on!

Come on, unleash your creativity!

Santa Claus Pancake

homemade santa pancake

To make this yummy Santa Clause face, follow our pancake recipe, and then decorate each pancake with whipped cream, and a hat made of strawberries, dressed the strawberries with LIMMI lemon juice, or for a sweeter twist, use Limmi Sweet & Sour.

Snowy Cupcakes

Marzipan Snowmen

To make these delicious snowmen, follow our lemon cupcake recipe and put a sugar cube on top of the swirl of frosting. Then use chocolate icing to pipe the eyes, mouth and arms of your yummy frosty friends. For the buttons, you can either purchase traditional ready-made sugar decorations at the grocery store or simply roll coloured sugar paste into tiny balls.

Mitten Cookies

Mitten Cookies

To make these cute Christmas mittens, follow this recipe and decorate them with royal icing.

To prepare it you’ll need:

1 egg white
150 g confectioners’ sugar
4 drops LIMMI lemon juice
Red food colouring gel

Whip the egg white and, a little at a time, add the confectioners’ sugar, lemon juice, and colouring gel. Keep whipping until the egg mixture forms stiff peaks and sticks to the beaters.

Place the icing in a piping bag, and let your creativity turn these delicious Christmas cookies into joyful artwork.

Marzipan Snowmen

Snowy Cupcakes

To make these adorable marzipan snowmen, you’ll need:

150 g confectioners’ sugar
200 g peeled almonds
30 ml LIMMI lemon juice
30 g egg whites
In a food processor, chop the almonds until they become flour. Thereafter, a little at a time, add the confectioners’ sugar, egg whites, and lemon juice. Remove the almond paste from the processor and knead it until smooth and compact.

Roll 2 balls of marzipan for each snowman, a small one for the head, and a bigger one for the body. Stack and join the two marzipan balls, and decorate them as you wish with coloured sugar paste.

Marzipan, wrapped in plastic film, can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Ok, but what about the table? You’re right! And that’s all we need to complete our initial to-do list.
