Limited Edition Gingerbread Man cookie cutter has a heart

I wish I had seen this before I did so many cookies last weekend. Instead of just an outline of a Gingerbread Man to cut cookies, these from Hammer Song cut a cute little guy that includes a little heart. What a way of saying Happy Holidays with Love!

The cutter is tin and makes a 2 inch tall, 1 1/2 inch wide little Ginberbread Man. If your not familier with Hammer Song cutters, they are hand crafted cutters designed by a couple in America. What I have loved using their cutters in the past is that the cookies look just a little different from what everyone else has so you give out unique cookies that people know you made without looking, er… homemade.

Fancy Flours is offering these cutters for sale along with instructions on how to make the perfect Gingerbread Man cookies using these cutters.

Family Gingerbread House Craft Magazine for the iPad

There is a service for small magazines called MagCloud that prints and ships single copies of magazines when ordered. This keeps the overhead for folks starting their own magazines down till it takes off.

MagCloud offers some of their magazines via their iPad Reader app (Free) at no charge. One that we noticed last night was a family craft magazine that included instructions for making a clay Gingerbread house. Fun for kids since they can just roll the clay back up if they make something they aren’t happy with. Most likely it will be the adults in the room that keeps playing with the clay to make the perfect little house.

If you don’t own an iPad, you can stil buy a copy of the holiday craft magazine.

If you have an iPad, download it via iTunes from here. After you install the free magazine reader app, just look for craft magazines and download the one in the screen shots below, at no charge. Fun!
