Halloween Gingerbread Men

These Halloween Gingerbread Men are a great Halloween project for the kids to get stuck into.

I make up my usual gingerbread dough recipe, then spread the cooled, cooked gingerbread men with buttercream (you can make it yourself or buy it ready made in a tub) - this helps the icing stick.

The kids then rolled out some ready to roll icing (Renshaws) and used a knife and gingerbread cutters to cut out the shapes they wanted. We made ghosts, zombies, witches and mummies....and they tasted yummy! Be as creative as you dare!
