A couple of days before Christmas I made a batch of Gingerbread men, women and hearts.
And popped them into a biscuit tin so that my evil plan could unfold on Christmas Eve.
Unfortunately, although in London, hubby was a tad busy helping son no.2 with some revision, but at 6.00 p.m. I called time and ushered him into the living room.
Where he was met with a myriad of coloured icing, sparkly balls and multicoloured chocolate treats.
We filled the icing bags, popped the cork of a bottle of bubbles and then the fun began.
We did have fun, hubby working on a Hipster!
And I do love stripey socks in all mediums. (as well as very flamboyant waistcoats!)
I especially love the ginger jazz player with the white jazz hands and blue hair, Toile and hubby’s hipster.
And in these I think the reindeer is inspired and I love the rainbow dress with gold sparkly shoes. And on occasion, there was a little 3d experimentation.
Tucked away ready for Christmas. I must say the amount of icing we used did make the Gingerbread go a tad soggy! But we didn’t care. I think this is going to be one of our new to us traditions, it really was the best of times.
