Inspired by Sara’s piece on Christmas Spirit http://wonderland.starma.co.uk/?p=1556 I decided to get Baking!
Armed with the
and my trusty
rolling pin I decided
that this years
Christmas gift was
to be Gingerbread
All you need is a set of different sized star cookie cutters:
Once your gingerbread stars are out of the oven and have cooled lay them out in order (largest for the bottom):
Then use the royal icing to make pretty snow to cover your tree:
A simple concept and recipe and very effective!
Although I did learn that these are not the most effective gift if there is any chance of humidity. The gingerbread goes soft and falls off the ribbon… and sometimes the dog gets it.
