I felt like baking something today since I haven’t done any baking in over 6 months. I usually bake cookies or sometimes bread but today I ventured out into gingerbread. I have never baked gingerbread before so I found myself an easy recipe over at Taste.com.au.
Not content with just boring gingerbread cookies, I dug out my cookie cutters and make gingerbread stars, hearts, ducks, cats, rabbits and odd shaped men.
I also decided to make some icing as well since I had some egg whites left over from the gingerbread. Lela and I decided to go for some non-standard colours.
Unfortunately, our icing abilities leave a lot to be desired and so our gingerbread creatures look like they have been iced by six year olds. It is a good things that these are not cakes or else I would have to submit them to Cake Wrecks.
I tried to disguse the icing under hundreds & thousands but I really don’t think they look any better.
Fortunately, they taste better than they look and for my first attempt at gingerbread making I must say that I did a pretty good job.
