The Gingerman Baker

Gingerbread cookies get a lot of focus during Christmas holidays.  They’re my favorite Christmas snack next to biscotti.  Baking and decorating them got me into the Merry mood so I made a Christmas poem dedicated to all Gingerman bakers out there, here goes.


Ho Ho Ho !

I’m the Gingerman maker

A one proud baker

My creativity is expressed in my creations

Their not just classic flavors and presentations

Gingerbread man

Bake them crispy instead of chewy so you can use them as Christmas tree ornaments !

Each of my gingerman is different

So yummy and carefully decorated

They can even be used as ornaments

that will perhaps earn me some complements

Decorate with theme and style !

Planning how to decorate is of utmost importance;

To prevent your gingerman from looking like a clown for instance.

You have to know what’s just right and what’s over the top,

When to use more sweets and when to stop.

Charles Lu

Made sad looking Gingerman…and angry ones too

Creating them requires an enormous amount of patience

for over rushing doesn’t do justice to the ingredients

The rule is to take them out (of the oven) before they brown

Otherwise Mr. Gingerman might just frown.

Everyone love Icings !

 share my secret?

There’s nothing really

Variety is vital

But balance is the key

Store them in a Christmasy cookie jar for your family 🙂

It’s totally exhausting, but oh, so much fun!

For the whole point should always be a good time for everyone.

So go bake these cookies at this time of the year

for Mr. Gingerman is just one of the things to make a Christmas cheer.

Christmas Gingerman

Wrap em up! Christmas treats for family, friends and carolers ! ( about 5-6 cookies per person is enough )

I make gingerbread cookies almost every year and everyone loves them. So if you think that you’re an exception that means you’ve not tasted a real gingerbread cookie.  There are a lot of gingerman wannabes out there, some don’t even contain ginger, some are just plain sugar or chocolate cookies, and the worst are the ones that taste like wet cardboard, ugh! I dare you to try my recipe and make the best gingerbread cookies you’ve ever tasted. Good Luck home bakers !

    • If you have a very simple design, designing might only take about an hour and they would still be nice 🙂 Thanx, means a lot coming from you 🙂

    • This is what I do instead of shopping for gifts; takes more time and money to shop than make these little man actually 🙂 Happy Holidays 🙂
