Bathing Gingerbread Men

Its gingerbread time of year – THIS IS NOT A DRILL

I love making gingerbread, but something I really fail at is gingerbread houses – I don’t know whether its all the construction involved or what, but they just always fail or look rubbish and I find it all too stressful, so I tend to stick to regular cookie cutter shapes. Sounds kinda boring right? NOPE.

Dunking Gingerbread Men

My absolute favourite gingerbread creations are these little bathing dudes that hang out in your tea/coffee/hot chocolate; they’re a real crowd-pleaser!

All you need is a batch of your favourite gingerbread recipe (mine is here!), a rolling pin, large gingerbread man cookie cutter and a cupcake tray or two!

  • Preheat your oven to 180C (or whatever your recipe requires!)
  • Whip up your gingerbread, and roll out onto a floured surface and cut out your little gingerbread men
  • Dust your cupcake trays with a little bit of flour, or use non-stick spray over the tray
  • Place your gingerbread man onto the tray, with their bodies in the bottom of the dip, and their arms, legs and head over the edge – you may need to space them out quite a bit, and maybe bake in batches if you don’t have multiple trays!
  • Bake as per your recipe, then let them cool in the tray to make sure they retain their shape

Once cooled, make yourself a nice hot drink to celebrate, and let one of them go for a swim!
