We’ve found a recipe which is utterly indulgent, very easy and aesthetically adorable. When baking this recipe, we recommend you put on a Christmas movie or your favourite festive soundtrack, have a hot cocoa ready and waiting for you post bake and an abundance of fairy lights on. Just to ramp up the festive spirit for all the Christmassy feels.
At Sass & Belle we like to make people smile and when we envisaged making gingerbread houses we thought we'd make you smile…in a different way. While we're rather good at making pretty giftware it appears we're not quite so good at making gingerbread houses. You can't deny they're charming but they certainly aren’t the Pinterest worthy beauties we hoped they would be. If you would like to follow suite and attempt to make gingerbread houses, then please read on. As they say, it's the taking part that counts, right??
We don’t know about you but at Sass & Belle, we love Christmas decorations! We also adore sweet treats so we thought it was absolutely integral that now the festive season is upon us, we do a little DIY on edible Christmas decorations. Gingerbread is an obvious choice because of its Christmassy connotations, lasting power and, most importantly, deliciousness. Now who can resist that? Just make sure you make enough so you don’t have a half empty tree by Christmas Eve!
Here’s a different type of Christmas tree decoration that you can make – edible festive gingerbread men! You can make these treats at home and decorate however you wish; you can include personal messages or dress them in festive accessories. After a couple of days (or as long as you can resist waiting!) take them down from the tree and eat with your favourite hot mug of goodness!
