Gingerbread for the Holidays
New bead friends for the holidays: Gingerbread Boy and Gingerbread House. Can you guess that I like gingerbread?
I like gingerbread cake with real chunks of crystallized ginger, and a dollop of whipped cream.
When I was little, mom and I made gingerbread people for all our friends and family, decorating each one to look like the recipient. It is one of my favorite childhood memories. Mom made frosting in cake decorating tubes, so we could apply appropriate colored hair, eyes, glasses, and clothing. I loved it. Now, I do the same with my kids.
Though I "cheat" when it comes to making gingerbread houses. We use Graham crackers!
