Christmas biscuit and cake recipes

Baking decorated biscuits for Christmas is an old tradition that dates back centuries. Rich, spicy, beautifully decorated biscuits like German Lebkuchen, have a place in almost every home in Europe.

Throughout the Advent period, from the end of November to the third week of December we run our great Bavaria Advent calendar competition . This is your chance to win a prize (ginger bread, hotel voucher, Bavarian sweets, ...) a day for 24 days!
