This buffet is a new piece in our kitchen. It is a dresser from our bedroom set however it is too big for the bedroom and doesn’t fit where I want it to go. I decided to keep it in the kitchen as I love the color, the low profile, and the drawers as it holds all the loose odds and ends. One drawer is for candles in case the power goes, another drawer for bills, receipts, envelopes, another for seasonal tea towels, one for my purged craft section and the rest, is overflow.
The mummer art was created by my husband which he sells online at Sweet Home Newfoundland. He also made me the sled and stained it in the same stain as the table he made me as well.
The gingerbread cookies were a premade package that I purchased and I honestly wish I would have bought more. They were so good. I purchased the Italian Cake at No Frills for $2. It is light and fluffy and great with a cup of tea.
I wanted gumdrop cake and didn’t have the patience to make a real one. I picked up a vanilla cake mix and added the gumdrops and while it was good, I remember now that I’m not a fan of gumdrops and it was cherry cake I had wanted and not gumdrops. Doh!
I chose a mixed fruit with icing loaf from Sobeys. The icing was good but the loaf was really tough.
We made a chocolate cake with buttercream icing and a shaved chocolate almond bar on top. It was probably the best tasting cake I had in years and it was even better as each day passed. I wish there was more.
