Christmas Baking! Gingerbread

December 13, 2010

Part two of our baking frenzy. GINGERBREADMANIAAA…

Before I start, let me post this because it’s too good not to share. I’d like you to meet Koko, Beanie’s Cavalier King Charles…

This is how she looks at you when she realises that there are people are in the kitchen, and that these people are instrumental to the nomming of delicious kangaroo-chips.


While I was taking care of the Zimtsterne, Beanie took care of the gingerbread. Which started off with butter.

Lots and lots of delicious butter…

To which she added many other delicious things…

Seriously, a part of me kind of wanted to eat this with a spoon.

Sifting spices

Why is gingerbread dough so much more delicious than other raw dough






But of course the most fun (besides eating them) is decorating!


In this photo you can see emo-gingerbread-boy front and centre, surrounded by hula girls and french maids (geez. cheer up emo kid)

In here you can spot a vampire (the proper caped-and-decidedly-non-sparkly-kind, thanks very much), monopoly man, frankenstein, farmer and…. *cough* woman of negotiable affection.

builder, santa claus, clown, millionaire, salaryman, stepford wife, another emo kid

The opportunities were endless!

The workbench!

I wrapped some up to give as presents. Hopefully I’ll get another chance to make some more closer to Christmas.

      Yeah for some reason we decided it’d be a good idea to double BOTH recipes…. hahahahhhhh yeah. Well, you can see how that worked out.

    You have such great piping technique, I’m impressed! I’m too lazy to ice my gingerbread, its flavour has to speak for itself! He he!
