It’s no secret that I’m a fan of gingerbread. I love baking it, decorating it and eating it! I’m not sure where it all started but now I find myself with gingerbread inspired necklaces, flavoured lip balm and even a gingerbread Christmas jumper. Gingerbread is delicious all year round and is easy to adapt to any occasion. Although we love gingerbread men and houses, we’ve also used our love of gingerbread to create gingerbread Death Star cookies, gingerbread Iron Golem biscuits and even Mr Twit’s beard! I was really happy to receive a copy of Modern Gingerbread to review.
Modern Gingerbread by Sandra Monger
See gingerbread in a whole new light with these 15 exciting, contemporary baking projects.
The making and decorating of gingerbread houses has long been synonymous with the coming of Christmas, and the tradition has never gone out of fashion. In recent years the design and painstaking creation of gingerbread structures has gone beyond the traditional cottage, with users on Pinterest seeking inspiration for the making of gingerbread cities, skyscrapers and even sugar-glazed gingerbread greenhouses.
Modern Gingerbread seeks to tap into, and lead, the trend for contemporary gingerbread baking and decorating. Lauded cake-maker Sandra Monger is full of terrific ideas for gingerbread projects, from decorative gingerbread tiles and wreaths to a Norwegian kransekake delicately crafted from rings of gingerbread, gingerbread-embellished wedding cake and a gingerbread star and bead garland.
The gingerbread projects included in the book are accompanied by templates, and recipes for traditional, coloured and vegan gingerbread are also featured. The book is priced at £12.99, published by SearchPress and all good bookshops.
