GINGERBREAD MAN GARLAND
If you wish to make a Gingerbread Man Garland similar to the photos above, after you have cut out the gingerbread man shapes, use a round piping nozzle with a 5mm diameter to cut out holes for the ribbon.
CHRISTMAS TREE DECORATION
To make gingerbread cookies to use as Christmas tree decoration, simply cut out any festive shape (e.g. angels, snowflakes, Christmas tree), and use a round piping nozzle with a 5mm diameter to cut out a hole at the top of the shape where you can later string some ribbon. You can bake the cookies for the recommended time, or just a few minutes extra for extra crisp/strong cookies.
HOW LONG DOES IT KEEP?
The rolled out, uncooked gingerbread dough keeps for about 3 days in the fridge. Once baked, the gingerbread cookies keep for 2 to 3 days in a covered container.
