This is Christmas: The joy of baking

A sponsored post for Westfield

Maccachef Xmas

Christmas day is the Grand Final in the Kitchen. The ultimate cook off as you juggle tiredness, over excited children, extra family members, hot weather and a desire for perfection that would meet Mary Berry’s Christmas special.

Of course inevitably something goes wrong. Sometimes all of the things go wrong. As Westfield are reminding us this festive season….all everyone remembers is joy. All the good bits, the bits that make you laugh….they are the bits that people will remember. As Julia Morris says, it’s perfect just the way it is.

What better way to showcase the pressure of the day, the sheer challenges and obstacles that can be faced…then in the Macca Chef Kitchen.

What have been some of your best Christmas day cooking challenges?
Ever tried something new on the day that went horribly wrong?
Keen to add a Christmas cracker to your plating up this year?

I’ve got one $250 Westfield Gift Card to give to one lovely person. Just head over to Instagram, or share in the comments below, a photo of your Christmas. It can be when you tried a new recipe that went horribly wrong to a messy table following the feats. Tag your photo with @babymacbeth @WestfieldAU #THISISCHRISTMAS to be in the running.

    Please please legit cook that one day. Squail surprise. Soccerball ham. Good ole iceberg lettuce. I want to eat all of it.

  18. See Insta for my gingerbread cookie fail late last week. Not only did I not have enough brown sugar or golden syrup to bake the actual biscuits, the kids lost interest about two cookies in to the decorating, leaving it all up to me. My efforts looked much like theirs anyway. Uninspired and messy. Not crafty and proud.

  19. Laughed out loud! Christmas is family!
    ?Wishing you and your family a good one
