Ready for winter fun!

Gingerbread is not just for the holiday season. This gingerbread man is all dressed up in winter gear and ready for those cold snowy days. Decorating with royal icing allows the design to dry hard and package for parties or bake sales.

Royal Icing Recipe:

1 lb. confectioner’s sugar
3 Tbsp. meringue powder (can be found at local cake decorating supply stores)
5 Tbsp. lukewarm water

Blend sugar and meringue powder using a mixer or hand blender on low speed to incorporate. Add water and mix on medium speed for 10 minutes until icing is bright white and smooth.

To complete this winter design you will need:

-pre-baked gingerbread men
-royal icing
-red paste food coloring
-small red hots for eyes
-piping bag
-#3 small round decorating tip

  2. Susan,
    What a great idea. Thanks for bringing this to the class through your blog. I am always looking for some fun ideas to do with my kids during the winter. They love helping out in the kitchen and we might just have to make some gingerbread men this weekend.
