Don't Run Away My Ginger Bread Man


 Ho! Ho! Ho! Christmas is just around the corner. Thank you "Santa" for sending me nom nom and "Mrs Santa" for sending me pressie. You know who you are Mr Santa Anonymous and Mrs Santa. The nom nom opened already and the card is on my Christmas Tree. And Mrs Santa's pressie is under my Christmas Tree too.

Ah.....in Christmassy mood. This morning Mamarazzi and me were in a baking mood.


 A little bit of this and a little bit of that......chop chop here and chop chop there.

 And we have Ginger Bread Man and Christmas Trees.

 Mamarazzi asked why my Ginger Bread Man no eyes and I replied so that he can't run away. No eyes cannnot see so cannot runaway lah.

 First round and first time baking this.....haiz...have to wait so long geh to decorate it with icing. Mamarazzi said have to wait for it to cool down before I can decorate or else the icing will melt.


 Finally.....

Taste...I had two...errr....okay la....eh eh...got "sprinkle" on the plate...don't waste.....kiasu...put on the cookies and eat

Mamarazzi saw Betsy posted lovely Ginger Bread "deer" in her Facebook . It was made out of upside down Ginger Bread Man.It was very cute.

She also wanna try la but under her clumsy hands this ugly "deer" was the result....Mamarazzi should have bake this for Halloween  . *LOL*

She was not satisfied with the result of the first round baking. The cookies were too thick and the decoration were too ugly.  Mamarazzi baked one more round. 


Hmm......second round turns out not bad. Better than the first round. She even managed to make "Patrick" and "Spongebob" with Papa's help...though they don't really look like Patrick and Spongebob. Can you spot which one is Spongebob and which one is Patrick?

Many thanks to Mamarazzi's old chum, Hillary for forwarding her the recipe for the Ginger Bread Man

Here is the recipe if you wish to try out :-

Ingredients :

350g Plain Flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp cocoa powder
88g sugar                       }Mamarazzi changed to 80g brown sugar
87g dark brown sugar     }
50g egg
20g molasses } Mamarazzi changed to 1/4 cup golden syrup
60g water      } Mamarazzi didn't add any
115g butter     } Mamarazzi hentam 120g coz her "toy" weight machine is by 120g...no 115g *LOL*

Method

1. sift all the dry ingredients together
2. add butter and mix it till sandy
3. add egg, molasses and water...in her case it was egg and golden syrup
4. roll out and cut into shape
5. preheat the oven and bake at 180C for about 13 minutes


Icing

In the beginning she used store bought icing but she taste it and didn't like it. Hence she hentam look for recipe online. Here is the one she followed with some modification.


-2 egg whites beat till stiff foam/peak then add 300g icing sugar gradually. Continue beating till stiff peak formed.

-Divide into 3 portions. One portion add green coloring, one portion add red coloring and one let it be white. Put into fridge and later scoop into plastic bag .

-Cut a tiny hole at the bottom of the plastic bag then can start "decorating".
