Ginger Bread Man


Ginger bread men wearing pants.


Ginger bread in Bikinis...





I promised my boy to make some ginger bread man for him to bring to school and share with his Friends. So I did. Instead of the real ginger bread man, I made the usual butter biscuits, but in ginger bread man shape. The kids love it. Some of the ginger bread men they use it for their Xmas deco in the classroom.
