A TASTE OF THE HOLIDAYS WITH EMMA’S DESSERTS
Being home in Bali is what we look forward to most in the holidays. It’s here that we are surrounded by family, friends and of course an unlimited amount of delicious festive baking! Our Mother, founder of Emma’s Desserts, slowly but surely brings out the little bakers in all of us.
It’s been a fond Christmas tradition throughout the years where my sisters and I delightedly become our Mother’s elves in the kitchen – piping, sprinkling, and decorating the many creative cookie designs she comes up with. From Santa, gingerbread men, snowmen, angels, snowflakes to Christmas trees. All the while, Christmas music is blasting in the background never failing to keep us in the holiday spirit. It’s funny how by the end of it when all the Santa hats have been topped with desiccated coconut and all the reindeer noses have been painted red, nobody wants to eat any of them, because they look so darn cute and adorable!
This by the way is a little taste of the holidays in our household – sappy, cheesy, uber Christmasy, and of course absolutely deliciously sweet! Why would we want it any other way? Cue the Christmas Carols!
