The Great Lettuce Craft Holiday Bakeoff! 2023!
It’s that time of year again! The holidays are a time for gathering with family and friends. And of course, creating baked goods to share with those loved ones! Whether it be Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, or New Year’s Eve, we all have those special recipes we make every year, and most of us have those special over-the-top recipes bookmarked or Pinned, that we dream of making for the holidays. Well my friends, this is your year to make and share your best holiday bakes with your Lettuce Craft family of friends!
YOUR MISSION - CREATE A SHOW-STOPPING BAKE FOR ONE OF THE UPCOMING HOLIDAYS!
- Bake up a Tom Turkey Bread Sculpture for Thanksgiving dinner.
- Recreate some traditional Sufganiyot for Hanukkah.
- Fry up some amazing Mandazi, (East African Donuts) for your Kwanzaa celebrations.
- Light up the morning for your family with a St. Lucia Crown.
- Bake up a beautiful Bûche De Noël for Christmas Day.
- Ring in the New Year with a Champagne Cake with Italian Meringue Buttercream.
- You must bake something for one of the many holidays found between November, and New Year’s Eve, 2023. It may be one listed here, or one I may have missed.
- NOTE: “Bake” is not a literal term here. If you could be asked to cook it on the Great British Bake Off, then it’s fair game. Think cooking flatbread over rocks around a fire, using an outdoor grill, frying donuts in oil, etc. All are fair, even though they aren’t ‘baked’ in a traditional oven!
- You must give credit for the recipe, either a link to one you found online, or noting that it is a family recipe.
- Each member may only submit one entry, which cannot already be posted on its own thread.
