Hiding in the freezer section at Ikea is frozen gingerbread dough.  I don’t like the smell or taste of ginger and rarely make gingerbread for my kids (mean mummy).  However, my kids LOVE gingerbread so I thought I would give this dough a go.

I thawed the dough in the fridge and rolled onto a floured surface.  Miss 8 used a large and small gingerbread cookie cutter to cut out the gingerbread.  The kids loved the flavour once it was baked!

Make and bake gingerbread man, turn upside down and decorate.  Use the legs for antlers, arms for ears and the head to place the eyes and nose.  I used Queen Choc Trio Icing set to draw on the features
