I know, I know, since you eat gingerbread men, this could actually fall into the Tasty Tuesday category. But, we didn't bake the cookies. We used a pre-baked kit I bought the other day for a couple bucks (gotta love after-Christmas clearance!) All we had to do was decorate them . . . or in other words, make them decorative. Get it? Make them.
Anyway . . . on to the cookies, er, decorating!
Observant me did not realize that the fondant that came in the package was not pre-cut. The box showed all these cute, little gingerbread men. I assumed it had all the accessories shown. Nope, just a block of fondant. Thankfully, Daddy surprised us by coming home from work after only half a day! He is much more artistic than I am. He had the privilege of cutting whatever the kids asked for.
Ok, maybe even the "work" was fun.
They turned out so cute! I especially like the Tiny Tim one. (Can you spot him, crutch and all?) He had a casualty during the process, but Daddy fixed his leg up.
First a tailor, then a linguist, and also a doctor??? This man is amazing! I think I'll keep him.
I'd say it was a profitable day . . . regardless of which category it fits in.
