it was quite a mission. i was asked to create some bride and groom gingerbread men, fully iced and everything! i was so excited to be able to do this for my wonderful friends for their special day, and i love being set such a challenge. after much trial through different gingerbread recipes and icing designs we finally came to an (almost) final pair...
♥ you can find the recipe i used to make these tasty gingerbread wedding favors here! after much trial and tribulation and many different recipes, i can say that this one is the BEST - not too sticky, not too sweet and the perfect amount of spice... and easy to make in a large quantity!
it took 11 hours in total to make and ice and cool and wrap these little brides and grooms, and the couple were really happy with the result. it was tough to transport them without shifting the icing, but we were incredibly careful and they made it to the venue intact (they also served as place names, how smart?!)
so, it was a wonderful experience making these little gingerbread people, and if you're ever in the same situation make sure you have a really awesome soundtrack to listen to!
