Christmas gingerbread

Christmas gingerbread

December is always crazy busy.

But when you're kneading gingerbread, feeling its soft squishy mass beneath your palm and breathing in the intoxicating aroma of ginger, all spice and sweet sticky treacle, it's just enough to make your shoulders relax, your stress ease and a little cheeky smile erupt at all the good food that lies ahead.

Little lunchpail boxes of iced gingerbread help spread the Christmas cheer among friends.

And today, we're decorating our gingerbread houses made from scratch.

Remember not everyone has good food ahead, so make sure you donate to Menu For Hope. You could win yourself a very cool prize in the process as well.

    Where did you get those great boxes? I make chocolate rum balls (Lindt 85% cocoa chocolate, hmmm) and almond cookies to give as Xmas gifts, but I've never seen boxes that cool!

    Hi Kelly - Thanks. I love gingerbread, although the icing is definitely part of the highlight :)

    Hi jenjen - I love decorating cooking, and I had lots of fun doing the outlines for the gingerbread men.

    The gift boxes came from Priceline at World Square. They're cute aren't they?

    Hi Anon - The gift boxes came from Priceline at World Square, and mmm I love almond cookies. Anything homemade is tasty!

    Hi Swee - The gift boxes came from Priceline at World Square. They had a few other designs, but I liked the cupcake one the best :)
