When I think of Christmas, I think of gingerbread. We’ve already made gingerbread tree decorations here, which were a big hit with the kids, so when I saw a mini gingerbread man mould I couldn’t resist buying it.
We used this recipe from the BBC food website, and it was amazing.
The little men came out quite easily, leaving Z and S the fun task of decorating them.
We made a little gang.
Some of the men broke on the way out so I squished them into balls and put them in the freezer for a couple of hours.
Then I coated the balls in chocolate and added some mini smartie eyes and pretzel antlers. Its a bit of shame about the finger smear, but I’m quite impressed and cannot wait for the Z and S to see the cake pop in the morning.
