Ingredients:

  • Fieldstone® Bakery Gingerbread
  • Royal icing mix
  • Food coloring
  • Shredded wheat cereal
  • Wafer cookies
  • Edible marker pen
  • Piping bags and tips

Directions:

 

  • Carefully unwrap Fieldstone® Gingerbread, and arrange on a plate or sheet pan for decorating.
  • Mix royal icing according to directions on package.
  • Use food coloring to create desired colors of icing for decorating– We chose yellow for the shirt, blue for the overalls, and white for the faces.
  • Transfer icing to piping bags with appropriate tips for piping.
  • Crush up a handful of shredded wheat and set aside for decorating.
  • Trim wafer cookies to create desired hat shapes and set aside.
  • Pipe on desired color of icing for the shirts, beginning with an outline, then filling in after outline has dried.
  • Repeat this process for the overalls after icing is completely set.
  • After shirt and overalls are fully set, pipe on faces, and add small stripes of white icing to hands feet and collars.
  • Before icing sets, sprinkle with crushed shredded wheat cereal to create the straw effect.
  • Carefully adhere hats to cookies with a small amount of icing, and allow to dry. Then add additional icing and shredded wheat for straw effect on hats.
  • After cookie icing has completely set, use the edible marker pen to add details as you wish, like buttons or tatters in the clothing.
  • Enjoy your beautiful handiwork!
