A Fruit Cake You'll want to Eat!

The time has come from Holiday Fruit Cakes get a make over.
Make them festive, make them fun, make them colorful, make them delicious...

I started with white, fluffy coconut cake
(coconut is a fruit, right?)...

and added fruit slice candies....


Finally a fruitcake that screams, 
Eat Me!


And I just couldn't resist some gummy mint leaves 
for a second holiday cake...

They make the perfect wreath.


So this Christmas,
let them eat CAKE!

For these I used store bought cake but my favorite recipe is 
Ina Garten's Coconut Cake.
All the candies were available at my supermarket.

Holiday Root Beer, Reindeer Floats!

Sleigh bells ring are you listening?
 'Tis the season for
Root-deer Floats!


Silly, refreshing, fun and so easy for parties,
especially when you set up a 
Root-deer Float Station 



simply chill some
"Rein-beer"...

gather a few
"Snowballs"...

ask Rudolf for some
"Noses"...


and add 
minty "Antlers"...
(in most stores the holiday baking aisle)

then
"Dash Away, Dash Away, Dash Away All"!
