The day of the gingerbread arrived in our house. Or should I say the two days? Because yesterday was the dough making and baking bit. I mixed the dough in the morning and let it rest for a few hours in the fridge, and then in the afternoon we rolled and cut dough with much enthusiasm. Including using our new Ikea cutters for a flat pack gingerbread house and 3D cookies.
Today it was all about the royal icing and the sprinkles. If only it had snowed too the day would have been perfect.
The house went together really well, even having Santa going down the chimney, and we had fun getting creative. My favourite cookie that I did is the gingerbread man you see below. I'm still trying to think of a good story of why he has that look on his face.
And the cookie that looks most like a Muppet is this teeny tiny angel.
Serious, how cute is that?!!
