As much as I enjoy cooking and baking for my family, it is always nice when I do not have to and to have someone else prepare a meal for me instead. I suppose as a family we eat out maybe once a month, sometimes more like if we are away on holiday. There was a time when my boys were younger that we hardly never ate out. Mostly due to them being fussy eaters and also because sometimes the hassle of keeping them occupied while waiting for food, was too much for me to be able to relax and enjoy the ambience of eating out!

It also means that I can share my first festive blog post for 2018. It is for this very Easy Christmas Bauble Cake which I think looks colourful and fun. Furthermore, it will appeal to kids of all ages over the festive season.
