A couple of weeks ago I discovered a brilliant new baking subscription box and recently received my first Bakes Box. It was an exciting collaboration with Maid of Gingerbread to make a Gingerbread Biscuit Box which I mentioned in my gingerbread gift guide post.
It contained almost everything needed with dry ingredients, templates, decorations and instructions. Everything fitted in a flat envelope which slid through my letterbox.
I made the dough, wrapped it in clingfilm and left it in the fridge for an hour.
Then cut out my paper templates, rolled my dough and cut out my pieces.
I placed them on a baking tray and put them in the freezer for 30 minutes. Then I baked the lid and base, 4 sides, as well as some smaller biscuits to go inside the box. When everything was baked and had cooled down I started to ice and put together the biscuit box!
There were plenty of silver balls, smarties and coloured sweets so I iced and decorated as I wished. Icing isn’t my strong point but I think it looked pretty good.
When I had finished I placed the smaller gingerbread biscuits inside the box to create a wonderful gingerbread biscuit box. I’ve blurred out our name which I iced this on the top. What do you think? It’s easily my favourite gingerbread bake of the year and tasted delicious!
