In the run-up to Christmas the team at Peace Direct have decided to set up our own Great Christmas Bake Off! Each week we will be baking a series of Christmas-themed cakes, and posting our pictures and recipes online to give you some cake inspiration and get you in the Christmas mood. Following on from Carolyn’s delicious ginger bread cake, this week Lorena, our international programme’s intern, baked some Italian Christmas Biscuits. We’d love to hear from our supporters too so get involved and send in your own snaps and recipes!
Lorena has been with us for just over 6 months, helping our programme’s team to coordinate both our Africa and Asia partnerships. This week she baked some traditional Italian Christmas biscuits, which the team tucked into straight away.
