2015 Vegan Christmas Gift Guide

Full disclosure: I bloody love Christmas and everything that comes along with it. The decorations, buying gifts, wrapping gifts (yep), baking and driving around for hours looking at Christmas lights. It's usually my aim to have my Christmas shopping completed by the end of November, so that I can spend my December baking, decorating and just being heaps festive. Oh and executing my thoroughly thought out wrapping theme (yeah, I do that too). I understand that many don't share my love of gift buying and sometimes through veganism into the mix can add an extra layer of "ohmygodwhatdoIdoChristmasisaweekawayI'mgoingtocry" I would love to act as your personal shopper and gift wrapper over the Christmas season but until I can teleport, my 2015 Vegan...

Gingerbread Christmas Cookies

Difficulty: Easy-Medium Makes 125 small cookies Last Christmas I was living in Sydney and making trips back to Newcastle every weekend. I was also hating on Sydney so wasn't feeling particularly festive. This year I'm home and have plenty of time to make the Yuletide gay. Last weekend I whipped up a huuuuge batch of gingerbread cookies and went on a covert mission to secretly deliver them to my dearest friends. I was lucky enough to find that Queen cachous doesn't contain gelatine so this comes in handy for decorating. All the food colouring I use is from non-animal origin, this site is really helpful if you're unsure if what colours are suitable. Ingredients 2 teaspoons egg replacer 2 tablespoons water 1 cup Nuttelex 1 cup firmly packed...
