Festive ways to decorate gingerbread

When you think of Christmas what are the first images to come to mind? In Australia, it’s probably houses adorned with Christmas lights, hot days at the beach, gatherings with family and friends and of course Christmas trees surrounded with presents of all shapes and sizes.

When it comes to the food, there’s a tradition we quite enjoy around here and that’s making gingerbread. The spicy smell, the different personal designs and of course the joyous spirit that goes hand-in-hand with the making and of course the giving.

Have a little fun with your gingerbread treats this year with these delicious ideas from a stunning wreath cake to easy tree decorations.
