How to Dress Up Your Gingerbread Man
How to Dress Up Your Holiday Gingerbread Man
This year, we’re showing you how to dapper-up your gingerbread man for the holiday. From icing and toppings to themes and design, we’ve come up with some of our favorite ways to decorate a gingerbread man. For the married couple, a gingerbread man would not be complete without his woman, and for the heat-seekers, cinnamon candies make a spicy and colorful way to button up his shirt. We cover these decorations and more for your gingerbread man so that when you finally catch him, he’ll look and taste good.
As with every story, there’s a beginning, and the gingerbread man’s starts with his dough. Our gingerbread recipe relies on much more than ginger, calling for spices like nutmeg, ground cloves, and even a little black pepper to make sure that the cookies are extra flavorful.
