Christmas Food Craft Ideas

As food is on my mind 24/7 and my longtime fantasy of living in a gingerbread house, I am inspired to make my own Christmas tree ornaments with materials none other than, edibles! I am hoping to make popcorn garlands and maybe one of these super adorable and unique ornaments that is drool worthy! Oh I’m feeling all “crafty” alright! :D

1. Cinnamon Stick Bundles

2. Gumdrop Christmas Tree Balls

3. Christmas Popcorn Balls

4. Pasta Snowflakes

5. Peppermint Tree

6. Lollipop Tree

7. Cinnamon Christmas Star

 

Pumpkin Pecan Pie with Cornflakes Crust

I’m so proud of myself right now. I can’t help it, just look at the pie, my very first pumpkin pie. Oh, did I mention the filling is made from scratch too?

Despite the idea of  making things from scratch is impressive in my book, I’m convinced that I’ll need a shortcut for the filling next time. Some of you will agree that peeling through the stubborn exterior of a pumpkin (actually about a quarter of a  Japanese pumpkin) and cutting it into pieces are no piece of cake, especially when you’re relying  on an old and blunt generic knife to do the job for you. I should have used pre-made pumpkin puree instead. I should have. At the end of the day, I don’t think it’ll make much difference, am I correct? Even if there is any difference, there’s nothing nutmeg and cinnamon can’t fix right?
