I’m sharing two of my favourite homemade chocolates on Simple Bites(…)
This cake has Christmas written all over it. I know there will be people rolling their eyes since it’s only the beginning of November, but I love Christmas, so I’m not afraid to start sharing early. To be totally honest I started listening to Christmas music at the end of September. Not every day, mind(…)
