  18. Hi,
    Can i check with you how to make the icing for the gingerbread man eyes and mouth?

    I going to start practicing soon for Christmas

  19. Hi Mr and Mrs Bee,

    I was using Wilton's decorating icing. If you would like to make your own icing, you can refer to here:

    There are recipes for royal icing made using egg whites or meringue powder.

    Good to start practising early for christmas. Have fun with cookies decorating!

  20. Hi,
    May I know about how many gingerbread boy/girl will the ingredients make?

  21. Hi, I just realized that I did not record it down and I have now forgotten how many pieces I had made last year. So sorry about it.
