Evil gingerbread man
Almost two weeks into the new year! Hope everyone had a great holiday. We had a relaxing one. Spent a week with Grandma and Grandpa, and a week on our own in Berkeley. It really felt like a vacation! This is the second year of Christmas cooking making in our household. The spritz cookies were beautiful and delicious (Maylin LOVED using the cookie press and sprinkling sugar and candy sprinkles over the treats), and this year, I didn't forget to put the all-important GINGER in the GINGERbread men! I even iced them this year and had a blast decorating. I didn't know icing was so easy to make. Just add enough water to powdered sugar to get the right consistency for easy manipulation (not too drippy, not too pasty). I used the tip of a chopstick(!) for icing maneuvering. So here's evil gingerbread man, kidnapping two gummi bears.
