Gingerbreadman

For our Friday arts and crafts today, we did something new which was really, really fun and best of all, the end product was edible :) It was Koo-koo who suggested making these Gingerbreadman cookies because she was not working today.

Yes, it was cookie day again for us today... our second within a week!

A dining table-ful of ingredients and ka-changs (tools). We followed this recipe but replaced the golden syrup with organic molasses.

Koo-koo gave me two candy canes and they kept me happily occupied (playing with them) the whole day.

Showing off and making funny faces with my candy canes

Since mummy was too busy to cook lunch, she ordered Domino's Pizza for us.

Classic Hand-tossed Seafood Delight and Crunchy Thin Crust Aloha Chicken

I'm a pizza monster! I ate more than half of the regular-sized thin crust pizza! And the three of us sapu-ed both the pizzas, leaving not a single crumb for daddy hehe

After lunch, we were all raring to start our baking session. Mummy did all the cookie-cutting and baking. I was in-charged of putting the buttons (mini M&M's) on the Gingerbreadmen while Koo-koo did all the icing decorations.

Button up, boys!

Ready to go into the oven!

Our very first Gingerbreadman... err, Gingerbreadboy actually, because of its mini size

Some of the cute, playful and funny expressions done by Koo-koo. The one on the top left corner with "chicken pox" was my favourite haha!

This is our "arts and crafts" for today

The whole Gingerbead clan :)

For Koo-koo's friends

They turned out very well and tasted delicious! Mummy was very surprised that I liked it cos it had a strong aroma of ginger (we used fresh, grated ginger) and cinnamon. Not bad, considering the fact that this was our very first attempt :) Although our baking activity ended at 5pm, the spice-y aroma lingered in our kitchen until night!
