Second Advent Cake and our tree dressed up

…and also Dec the 6th is the day in several countries – so here as well- when at the morning of 6th of December kids find little treasures in their boots. Saint Nikolaus brings them, the good kids get chocolate and nuts the bad kids potatoes or onions or coal. Of course it is totally depends on the tradition of the families, someone buy big gifts for this day…
But it was Second Advent too, Β so I made another festive cake and the same time on this day we went to a family for some gathering time so I made double :-) It is a wonderful cranberry-orange roll and have to tell you, everybody loved it!
I do not type the recipe here just click and for your gluten free version I recommend that just make your usual gluten free rolls and add the cranberry-orange sauce you can read in the article.

And what the success of this cake? The ‘meeting’ of the saure cheese cream and the sweet cranberry-orange sauce. Everybody highlighted that tasting after eating the cake that it is sooooo good. So I encourage you not to change it into mascarpone or cream, or if you have milk allergy too and for example use coconut cream, put some lemon jouice into that.
The other success of this recipe what I realized only after reading and starting to make it, that you put the rolls next to each other to make a wreath form after bake it :D. Well yeah…

But also it was the day when we dressed up our tree. We usually set it up around Dec the 1st and leave it naked with the fairy lights. I LOVE it. I would not put ornaments this time ’cause it was our first tall and thick tree it is so beautiful with its own beauty, but the kids wanted ornaments. However we don’t have too much ornaments and it is a big tree so it is beautifully simple. Each of our ornaments has a story, we bought somewhere or got it from somebody we really love and everywhere we travel try to find a new piece so we collect them this way. Oh and everyone is white, grey, pearl, beige, or gold.
