TIPS FOR DECORATING YOUR GINGERBREAD HOUSES , COOKIES AND CREATIONS
Decorate sides and let them dry before assembling.
If the Gingerbread components for your house are uneven, you can smooth off the edges using a fine grater
or trim according to your pattern while very hot. Use edible glue or freshly made Royal Icing for joining the components. Then simply dip the edges of the components into the thin consistency of royal icing and press them together.
Façade decoration: Brush the outer surface with dissolved sugar and stud with sweets. Decorate with cake icing piped decoration using icing sugar. Leave to stand for awhile; add more icing sugar if necessary. Stir until the mixture is smooth and thick. If you want to add color to your icing, add a few drops and stir well to thoroughly mix.

Aren’t these so cool! If you were alive in the 1980’s then you remember how the video game Pac Man was the most popular! We played Pac Man like crazy at my house and had so much fun trying get Pac Man to eat up all the dots and out-smart the ghosts! Even Mrs. Pac Man was a blast. Well, for a real Blast-from-the-Past arcade style, here are the neatest Pac Man Gingerbread cookies! Mix up a batch of regular Gingerbread Cookie dough and you can use a tulip flower-shaped cookie cutter to make the ghosts. Whip up some colorful royal icing and use espresso beans or chocolate chips for the “eyes” and your set!
