My Review... 

I chose to review this book as I love making gingerbread houses for Christmas!

The book is split into four main chapters, starting with the basics which includes spiced gingerbread and chocolate gingerbread recipes. How to make, tint, pipe and flood fill cookies with royal icing.

Next up is Cute, which is full of cookie ideas children will love, like the shaped teddy bears, kooky clowns and scotty dogs. Then there is the Pretty section, which includes the scattered sprinkle cupcake cookies, pink love hearts and autumn leaves.

Last up is Festive, which shows you how to make my favourite snowy village scene with candy glass windows. Decorative stars, ornaments and the prettiest snowflake cookies.

The Decorated Gingerbread by Annie Rigg is a cute hard back book book full of sweet gingerbread cookies. At a recommended price of £9.99, I think this hardback book is a good buy as it is has some great tips and sweet cookie ideas.

Please note that my opinions are my own and I am not paid for these reviews (apart from receiving a free book, of course!).

I really must go and start this year's gingerbread bird house!

Have a sweet day!
