It’s a little early to be bringing out Christmas themed items, but ever since my stint working as a display designer at Kate’s Paperie, I’ve been conditioned to start thinking about Christmas in August.

Here is Mother Ginger, one of my favorite characters from the Nutcracker Ballet.

She is a bottle holder doll, and, just like the real Mother Ginger…

…the little Bon Bons come out of her skirt!

I could’ve cheated and bought a Re-ment cake and use it as Mother Ginger’s hat, but I figured I would have more fun making a macaron cake out of Fimo.

I did!
