Truffles and Trifle

Not much baking going on here this week as I still don't have a working oven (could be stir frying the turkey in four weeks time at this rate!) However I have managed to make a trifle to take out to friends for dinner this evening. A very festive caramelised orange trifle from Delia's Christmas book.

And while I was browsing through the pages of the cook book I decided I would make some truffles too! Very fiddly and messy but they taste good!

And a tree decoration which was inspired by several seen yesterday at the Burwash Manor Christmas shop... where I just happened to meet Silver Pebble and Dotty Cookie plus a little Pebble and Cookie, for lunch and a bit of seasonal shopping! Can you tell I'm starting to feel festive!

  1. Ooh - before I read that you'd made it I assumed you's succumbed and bought the one we'd seen! It looks identical (lovely New England style) - and I spy some Domesticali string too!

    Well done on finding some delicious things to make that didn't need the oven - they look irresistible.

    Lovely to see you as ever - such a treat. Emma x

  3. Oooh, we have the truffles on our list to try for Christmas. She claims they freeze, and I shall test that!

    Thanks for another lovely meeting, and for my little angel!

  9. It's a pity I'm the wrong side of the country for Burwash Manor - it looks to be a lovely place. Your trifle and truffles look pretty lovely too.
