Hot Cocoa, Candy Boxes and Cakes

Good afternoon everyone.  I'm sorry I haven't posted in so long.  I've been working day and night on catch up projects.  I completed gift containers for the boy scouts, the girl scouts, teachers, bus drivers, co-workers, my grand children's bff, and other friends and relatives.  All together I made 30 hot cocoa cards, based on Mary's post here , and 40 of the candy gift boxes based on Mary's post here.

Here are some of the candy gift boxes I made.

The peppermint pretzel recipe is here.
My DIL and I made 30 dozen cookies and a ton of fudge. to fill trays we give away.  I made the best two cakes.  They are both bundt cakes.  They looked very pretty for the middle of cookie trays.

One is a Candy Cane Cake
Here's the recipe
The Second is Butter-Rum Pound Cake
Here's the recipe

I don't own a camera, so I've been using my DILs.  However, she is on vacation with my grandchildren for the next week.  So I won't be able to post any pictures.  I still have a few Christmas cards to get in the mail and I haven't wrapped anything yet.  Is anyone else swamped?  It didn't help that we got dumped with a blizzard last weekend.  It took until Tuesday to get dug out.  I can't bake with a bunch of people in the house, so I baked all day Tuesday when the kids got to go back to school and my son and DIL got to go to work.  Whew.
Well, I spent today designing a few last Christmas cards.  I just need to cut them out and assemble.  Then I think the cards are finished.  Yeah!!!

Thanks for stopping by.
