Ready, Steady, Icing…! Gingerbread Event at Christmas


I love baking around the Holidays and making festive themed treats is a great way to get in the Christmas spirit. Gingerbread is one of my favourite things to make as they’re good fun to decorate and look so cute once finished! See here for the recipe.


If you want to take the festive cheer of gingerbread to the next level, you can host a gingerbread evening like my good friend Jo. Every year a gingerbread army is baked ready for an icing competition; a large group of us hurry round her place, donned in our finest Christmas jumpers, hats and sparkly earrings, ready to grab a glass of mulled wine and take each other on for the grand prize.


We are usually given categories which we need to follow (e.g. occupation, Christmas or nationality) with three prizes given for the most creative biscuit. This year we upped our game with two teams competing for the best gingerbread house, with the below based on our local pub (complete with bouncer) taking the victory.

Yes we are all in our late 20s and yes it is still festively fab fun. I’m excited for next year’s event already!
