Edible Gifts for the Festive Season #DiwaliGifts

Ever spent hours in the shops/malls/infront of the computer screens wondering, what to take to someones’ home for Diwali and other festivals?

I always feel that everyone has everything one can possibly imagine these days. However handmade beauties can never be to less. A DIY kit or even a basket full of stuff that one may enjoy can be gifted to them.

Here are my top recipes and gifts this season:

Upside Down cakes- There is something inherently sexy about naked cakes. The best part about the upside down ones is that they have a sheen on them which feels jelly like. This season you may make

Flavors

Biscotti- Biscotti are essentially a twice baked cake. They are crumbly and buttery and oh so delicious.

You may make variations to the butter recipe by adding toasted sesame, funfetti etc.

Indian Sweets- Halwas and Burfis are synonymous with festivals. How about making them at home and sharing the joy. This way you can tweak the sugar levels as well.

Cake pops- So in case you do not feel like baking a cake from scratch, get a pack of the ready to mix cake batter flour and transform the shop bought delight to cake pops.
