Cranberry Christmas Cake

Dear Friends,
After almost a year of blogging and 136 posts, I have decided that it is time to bring about some changes to Our Patisserie. I have been considering this for a while, and the additional workload forced upon me due to my recent computer failure made it easier to come to this conclusion. Managing two blogs at the same time is just too demanding for me at this time, and the obvious course of action is to let one of these go. Our Patisserie is my first blog and as much as I would love to keep it, when I compare the number of daily hits my blogs receive, it is very clear that this is the one that I should let go. Since I would still like to share my kitchen experiences with you, I will probably continue posting pictures. But there will be little else other than the names of the sources for the recipes to accompany them.

Thank you very much for visiting, giving links to Our Patisserie and writing encouraging comments. In this past year, I learnt so much more from my blogging experience than from books in my many preblogging years. And that is priceless.

I wish all of you a happy new year!

The cake you see the in the pictures is Cranberry Christmas Cake from Alice Medrich's Cocolat. The components are chocolate sponge, creme fraiche and candied cranberries. Definitely one of the best cakes I made...
