Its all too often when you own a bakery that your families are the last ones who get the goodies. Just ask my partner, one of the most amazing cake decorators around, who stopped to buy her son's birthday cake on her way home from the bakery one day as we just got too busy to make one! You can bet he will get a monster of a cake from us next year!
Well, this gingerbread set-up was entirely for the family. Had so much fun making it! I just googled 'gingerbread sled pattern' and picked from one of the many that came up. The sleigh is to be filled with goodies for folks to pop in their mouths over the holidays.
All the figurines are hand-molded from gumpaste - I can get lost in gumpaste molding and emerge days later!
