As an avid Nutcracker fan - I once danced in the famous ballet staged every December by Les Grands Ballets and choreographed by the late Fernand Nault - I go a bit nuts whenever I see something that reminds me of this memorable moment. This year, my favourite item is this whimsical Nutcracker cupcake kit from Funky Party which comes in a lovely box styled as a theatre stage. Isn't that the cutest idea! I mean, how can you not like Clara holding her miniature Nutcracker, the Christmas tree, the Soldier, the evil Mouse King, the real Nutcracker, the Sugar plum fairy, the Columbine doll and the Snowflakes character? So endearing.
This would make such a fun gift for a ballerina or former ballerina!
