Baking Gingerbread Men

Fruitcake and I were getting into the spirit of Christmas and what's more Christmassy than baking ginger bread me? We've never done it before and thought it would be fun. So we Googled the recipe which looks very complicated. Our next best option: Take a short cut. So here goes!

We start with the pre-mix in a box which we kneaded and the dough turned out to look like ... well, see and judge for yourself.
The baking set even came with a ginger bread men cooking cutter!
We cut and decorated the men with M&Ms, raisins, Jelly Tots and sugar hearts and stars.
And into the over for 12 minutes. Here's Belle keeping a watchful eye.
They're expanding! And the M&Ms are exploding!
The Smarties made it though. Ta da! Our gingerbread men is ready to be eaten.
