Neighborley delights






I spent yesterday morning making my edible Christmas Gifts
for all my neighbors... Everyone on my street talks throughout
the year and I so love to walk down to everyone's home on
Christmas Eve with treats for each of them.
I even took one to my Doctors office yesterday, set it in the
lunch room for all the staff... (they loved it).


This year I chose "Cranberry Orange, Pistachio" Xmas cake.
It's a loaf cake and so good to sit with a cup of tea in the mornings
or evening.  



All together I made 8, no 9... have to count houses down my
street.  


 For delivery and display I simply used red plastic disposal plates.


Rolled parchment paper and cut tiny pieces of the round to create
a filler on the plates..
Makes for a nice look.


Using red plastic wrap tied with a bit of ribbon,  then attached a
Christmas card on each.... there, ready for my Christmas Eve
walk down the street.

My only regret,  I am not able to walk around bloggie land and
give out my tasty Christmas Loaf Cakes to all my friends on this
street.  Just know in my heart I am knocking on all your doors
tonight......


"Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night"

That is just so nice. I wish I knew my neighbors better.

Your neighborhood sounds like the perfect place to live. Although I know most of the neighbors, no one talks except during the annual community yard sale.

Wow.....what a wonderful festive community spirit you have going on there, I live in a great neighbourhood too, we've had quite a few street parties in the past mainly to celebrate Royal weddings and Coronations.......the street is closed to traffic and trestle tables are set up down the centre of the road.......everyone contributes food and drink and has a merry old time.

Warmest Christmas wishes to you, your family and your neighbourhood.

Well they certainly look delicious Sandy! I have not been a good baker this year. I might make some cookies tonight for Santa. :)

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

Merry Christmas! What a great gift! We just had a bunch of neighbors move (so weird...all in the same week) but the new ones seem very friendly. I would love to start doing this...maybe for New Years to share in the spirit!

Oh, those look so yummy! Lucky neighbors...Happy Holidays!

I would love to do something like this, but really don't like to cook so it would have to be something really simple and easy.
