A rainy Sunday afternoon making gingerbread men

5 Dec

It’s raining, it’s Sunday, what is there to do?

We decided to bake gingerbread men!

Baking with a 2 year old is not very relaxing for Mummy! When we start any baking I just have to get over the fact that there will be flour on the flour, a rolling pin being waved around as a weapon, and shapes cut out of the middle of the dough!!

Anyway, Evie loves all the stages of making, baking and decorating and it really is worth all the mess to keep her occupied for an hour or two!

Here’s the link to the recipe I used.

Here are some of the pictures:

Lots of concentration goes into getting the icing just right!

More icing gets on the work top than on the biscuits!

    Very cute, I see Evie belongs to the same school of decorating as Rosie!
