At least if this proved too challenging it is edible πŸ™‚

    I love Gingerbread men – I always start by biting the limbs off and leave the head till last!

  170. Paula Lavender says:

    They look so beautiful but I’m afraid in my house they wouldn’t last 5 minutes – we’re all mad on gingerbread!

  171. Judith Tomkinson says:

    Sorry to say that I’ve never made gingerbread, but that might all change. You make things look so simple!

  172. Chloe Hocking says:

    The sleigh looks really good don’t know if I could manage it but would be ok with the gingerbread person!

  196. Tricia Morrison says:

    Sleigh is a bit complicated for me- but I’ll give the gingerbread man a go! Made the salted caramels last night & ended up remelting them to a higher temperature – hard crack! Now I’m putting a disclaimer on the label that they must be sucked, not chewed or I won’t be responsible for the broken teeth! They do taste delicious though!

  197. Sue says:

    Lovely Ruth, how long will they stay fresh?

    • If you keep the baked pieces in an airtight container they will last upto a month. Once you’ve made them up as long as they are wrapped up and not open to the air they’ll last 2 weeks. They will of course last much longer than that but they would taste stale x

  198. Nicky Knight says:

    Run run as fast as you can…
    My little girl’s fave story at the mo. Need a cutter, or maybe we’ll do a template… Cutter would be easier for little hands πŸ™‚

  199. jamila says:

    I love that you don’t need a cutter to make the gingerbread man and that you provide a template! Thank you!

  200. Heather Hodgson says:

    The sleigh is such an amazing idea!

  203. Donna says:
