21 - this picture is from the archives, I can visualise the moment but can not remember the story. So, let's waste not time and get on crafting! (Well eating!)
Gingerbread Tree (needs to be eaten same day)
You will need ..
Your favourite gingerbread biscuit recipe
Star shaped biscuit cutters - in decreasing sizes
Star shaped biscuit template/s - larger than the biscuit cutter sizes
Optional - ready to roll icing
1. Make the gingerbread recipe, roll and cut out star shapes to create your tree.
2. Bake your biscuits and allow to fully cool and harden
3. Roll and cut out icing shapes to match every one of your biscuits
4. Starting with the largest star, layer up in decreasing biscuit sizes, pressing lightly to help with the construction
5. Once all stacked up, sprinkle lightly with edible glitter ... stand back, take photos before hungry guests tuck in!
Ideally the tree should be made and eaten on the same day, however, the biscuits can be pre-made a day or two, stored in an airtight tin and the icing added just before your guests land :)
