THE DECORATED GINGERBREAD MAN AND WOMAN

One of the gifts that I have received during the season of December 2010 was a decorated “Gingerbread Man and Woman.”

Through internet research, the Gingerbread figural biscuit-making was practiced in the 16th century and its first documentation was appeared in the court of Elizabeth I of England which was made and presented in the likeness of some of her important guests.

The Gingerbread Man and Woman was made with a soft molasses and ginger cookie decorated with gum drops, icing, chocolate and raisins.

The maker of this gingerbread has considered the quality and artistry of the product which decided  me to make a documentation and posting it in my blog. For me, this is the best gingerbread I’ve ever tasted. I like dark cookies indeed.

In fact, this article was written just  to show my great appreciation to the person who  gave  this valuable gift.
