Hey mommies (and daddies), the baking season is here!

Yep, I officially declare the Christmas season THE baking season because this is the time of the year when we usually do most of our baking. With Christmas parties, family reunions, gift givings left and right, not to mention the cravings for anything chocolatey, cinnamony, gingerbread, and BUTTERY. Oh gosh, this is the season where we truly indulge.

This is also the season when I make sure to stock up on my favorite ingredient in the whole world: butter. Because everything just tastes better with butter! You know, I don’t want to be caught empty handed when the craving and the baking kicks in so I always have butter in my fridge.

If you’d let me choose between butter or margarine when it comes to baking and cooking, I’d always choose butter, hands down. You know why? Because everything just tastes better with butter! Butter is made from cream or milk; while margarine is made from hydrogenated vegetable oil. And because butter is made from milk, it’s better tasting than margarine. The milk fat in butter gives that rich and creamy flavour we all love.

And when it comes to butter, I always use Anchor Butter. It has that Whole Milk Sarap that I want in butter. Any dish that I make or cook with Anchor Butter becomes luscious and delicious.

I used royal icing, sprinkles, and colored sugars to design it to spread the merry cheer that this season brings. Put it in a jar and it could make for a lovely gift to friends and relatives. Plate it on the table and it would make for a Christmasy dessert. Have it with your Christmas morning coffee….
