In the run-up to Christmas the team at Peace Direct have decided to bake a series of Christmas-themed cakes to enjoy in our weekly staff meetings. Each Tuesday we will be posting pictures and the recipes we used to give you some cake inspiration and get you in the Christmas mood. Following on from last week’s delicious Christmas Bakewell Cake, this week Carolyn our chief executive has baked a Gingerbread Heart cake. We’d love to hear from our supporters too, so get involved in our Great Christmas Bake Off and send in your own snaps and recipes!
