Gingerbread Decorating Day is celebrated by children and adults alike on December 12th every year.
The day sets the mood for the upcoming holiday season. Baking of gingerbread is one of the oldest holiday traditions and Gingerbread Decorating Day unleashes the hidden artist in us! Gingerbread is a broad range of baked goods flavored with ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
It is sweetened with sugar, honey, or molasses.
Gingerbread ranges from a soft, moist loaf cake to a crisp or dense ginger biscuit, depending on your favorite. If you are a novice baker or simply too busy, you don’t actually have to bake gingerbread cookies or a gingerbread house.
Pick up your favorite gingerbread items from the baker, make some quick icing, and get started on a gingerbread decoration project with all the candies you can lay your hands on.
Gingerbread can be decorated with many things.
You can use chocolate chips or creative icings like lemon or buttercream icing to decorate your gingerbread, and the only limit is your imagination. Gingerbread decorating is best done in groups, as fun shared is fun doubled.
Many childhood memories are centered around gingerbread flavors and colors as families make this a holiday tradition.
