3. Quick Breads
Quick breads, easy to make, are also widely popular as
Christmas gifts. Bread Machine makes the task of baking several
loaves all the more easier. Wrap loaves individually in cellophane
and tie with a bow to make perfect gifts. Pumpkin Bread, Cranberry
Bread, Gingerbread, Chocolate Shortbread, Banana Bread etc. are
great favorites at this time of the year.
4. Muffins and Cupcakes
Muffins and Cupcakes look very attractive in their paper cases
lined up in a decorative gift box. Decorate cupcakes by spreading
smooth jam all over the surface and then sprinkling desiccated
coconut over them for a lovely red-white effect. You can further
enhance the look by placing 3 holly leaves, cut out from green
marzipan and 3 little red marzipan balls to represent the berries.
