On Thanksgiving we made some gingerbread cookies. You can see my son Dev wanted his gingerbread girl "anatomically correct". lol
|But this gingerbread brownie is one thing that is absolutely wonderful and delicious.....|
|Not quite as cute as the gingerbread houses and cookies turned out...but much more tasty!|
|We made the boxed gingerbread houses from the kit with 4 little houses inside. Each of my granddaughters got one to make.....|
|It's a really fun and creative activity to do for a Christmas party or family dinner in December....everybody got into it!|
There are so many cute things to put on top using candy, toothpick toppers, sprinkles, designing an animal face with candy, and making stripes and polka dot designs with candy and edible things.
Here are a few that I loved.

Tips for Melting Candy Wafers for Decorating Cupcakes......
1.Use a double boiler.
2. Use low heat.
3. Don't boil it too fast or it turns to a ball.
4. Stir pretty regularly.
5. If you use a piping bag, let the melted candy cool for 10 minutes so it doesn't burn your hands as you pipe
6. Once molds are filled put them in the fridge to harden, or between color layers.
Have fun making Christmas cupcakes..... Here's my latest yummy obsession...Gingerbread men and Gingerbread Cake!
