True, she didn’t decorate the ones above, I will set the record straight on that, my two darling children were the artists who went crazy with the icing and sprinkles.
Valerie from A Canadian Foodie was lovely enough to not only drop by my place this weekend for my little get-together, but bring her soft, chewy, wonderful gingerbread men and the works for the kids to decorate.
When she asked what she could bring, I immediately thought of those gingerbread men.
I had drooled over her post but not had the inclination nor patience to try them.
So when she offered to bring something, I jumped all over my chance to not only have someone else make them, but the original creator. Score!
All she asked for in return was pictures of the finished goods. We decorated them later on in the evening, the kids were all playing so delightfully together that we just couldn’t bear to interrupt.
Or load them up with even more sugar.
Some talented moms couldn’t resist and also decorated….
A very creative little girl made a mermaid…..
Little boys took their time and meticulously created smiles and belts and pants…
And other little Picasso’s made their mark on the gingerbread art world.
A big, HUGE thanks to Valerie for bringing these and leaving me with about 3 dozen more, a huge amount of delicious icing and the complete works of sprinkles.
Jars upon jars of sprinkles.
I have a family Boxing Day dinner coming up and kids coming that will love the leftovers!
