The Gingerbread Man Project turned out much better this year. We did have one munchkin nibble on the decorations the entire process, but the supply was rather large. I accounted for the snacking during the festivities, which helped. If you compare the results from last year and this year, I think you’ll agree they turned out better this year. Thank you www.Food.com for a much better tasting cookie and thank you old fashioned royal icing for tasting so delicious.
