C is for Cake, Christmas and Calm.

Christmas this year is going to be a bit different for us. We have friends staying for about 3 weeks, which is lovely, especially as they are more than happy to play toddler games and babysit.

For Christmas itself we are deserting our friends and going on a large family holiday to Marrakesh, which means Christmas in a hotel. Sounds pretty glam doesn’t it. However I’ll admit that part of it fills me with a certain dread – what will the food be like, will it cater for me as a “wheat free, can’t tolate much fat, can’t eat much food at breakfast” type of weirdo? I have a digestive condition that really affects my eating, so for me planning and preparation are key.

In my case I have….. rice cakes, cereal bars, dried fruit, nuts….. plus food for the toddler too as she’ll be wanting to share some of mummies.

I know we are away for actual Christmas, but that hasn’t stopped me getting into the fun of it all. I LOVE this time of year. Literally I love  it. Fortunately I also have a toddler who is embracing the Christmas season, here she is helping decorate our wheat free Christmas cake. It’s a “Twinkle Star” cake, partialy decorated in the way it is as she attacked it with a star shaped cutter when I turned my back 😉 Gotta love her creative spirit. Here is the recipe in case you missed it.
