I know it’s too early to post about Christmas gift ideas here, but hey Christmas is only a few weeks away. For someone who loves to eat like me I thought of posting my favorite homemade polvoron here as a perfect food gift idea (for me and my kids).

My last order from Marce Fedhz was two years ago. So this year I will make it a point to place my order even before Christmas season sets in. 🙂

The picture above was my order (in four plastic containers with cute thank you cards) that came with sample product the ones in small brown bags. They were delivered right at my doorsteps by Fedhz’ cousins who were living just a few blocks away.
