Ho!Ho!Ho!Christmas bells ringing everywhere..December month had been a crazy lazy month for me.I’m in a holiday mood and have become super duper lazy.All I did was browsing interesting baking pages and watching interesting cake decoration videos.The endless list of ‘to be tried ‘ list is overfilling.I have taken lot of food pictures past few months which I will share the recipes whenever I’m in mood.Yes,you heard it right.Jokes apart blogging is my life.Past few months it is just ‘baking’ going on in my mind especially an urge to learn to cake decoration.
Learning is an endless process and I want to grab the opportunity whenever possible.My journey in blogging started with red velvet cupcake .And my passion has grown ever since my first post.I want to thank all my readers and supporters for this year’s wonderful journey. 2014 was a pleasant year which went smoothly with few bumpy rides here and there.
saiscookbook.blogspot.in got a domain name geeethsdawath.com ,we shifted from blogger to word press,cake decoration etc etc.. were some of the year’s highlights…Coming back to the post I could not resist without posting one .I was inspired to bake these cookies from the kids gang/bachcha party because they wanted to decorate it .So I prepared bunch of cookies to make them happy.I also got the opportunity to use the Christmas cookie cutters brought by my sister from Dubai.A big thank you to my cousin Anusha,my princess Sanjana,my niece Deepthi for the decoration part.We really had a blast.
Advanced ‘Happy New Year’ dear readers!!! .Merry Christmas!!Once again a big ‘thank you’ to all for the support from the bottom of my heart.
