Yesterday was a very gingerbread day. I made two double batches of dough and a couple dozen little men. Is there anything better than drinking hot cocoa and decorating cookies?
Why, yes, decorating and drinking with Uncle Bob.
We were all pretty silly from all the sugar. There were striped cookies, cookies covered with candy, broken & maimed cookies, and my personal favorite, Mojo’s “bikini” cookie.
The gingerbread fest continues today with the completion of this year’s gingerbread house. I think I went a little crazy with the design. Here’s a teaser — the template.
The assembly took an hour of painstaking propping and “glueing” with royal icing. Today is the day to heap on piles of candy (and more icing) and hope the roof holds. Stay tuned for pictures.
