Advent calendar 12
My dear friend Mia, with the beautiful blog Lilla Blanka, the other day showed some very sweet gingerbread Christmas trees she had made (click here to see her post). I have seen these lovely trees here and there, but had forgotten about them until I saw Mia's post. So, as my boys went wild during our baking session on Sunday, making everything from gingerbread sharks to giraffes and aeroplanes, I made a pile of stars (four each of four different sizes).
However, I confess, the "glueing" part, where melted sugar etc should have been involved, I skipped. I cheated and just stacked the biscuits, sprinkled some icing sugar over it (although, I see here it looks more as if I have dropped a sack of flour from a great height...) and ta-daa! A-hem... nothing wrong with an obscenely oversized top star, is there?
Flour-y, ginger-scented greetings to you all and thank you for all your kind words!
