Little Christmas Cakes (recipe from my Mom) Mini panes de Pascua

The last recipe before Christmas.
I have other recipes ready but I have not put them because I prefer make Christmas recipes.

It's a Christmas cake my mom always does.
 This year she is very tired so I told her I  could make  it.
 The recipe gives for two medium breads, but I made one bread and seven small ones  and they were  really good and smell delicious.

It is  a really ancient recipe that was given her from  a friend many years ago.

I garnish them  with  white glaze and marzipan leaves  and candied cherries.

I whish you all my friends a really Merry Christmas !!
