Gingerbread Bakery Cake Hack
Place some frosting into the zippered plastic sandwich bag.
Cut a small diagonal into a bottom corner of the plastic to squeeze frosting out of.
Use small amounts of frosting to decorate the front of the gingerbread cookies with candies. I added two buttons to each of my gingerbread men.
Place gingerbread cookies around the outside of the cake using frosting as glue on the back to hold them onto the cake.
Glue candies with frosting in between each cookie.
Stand gingerbread cookies up against each other in the middle of the cake. I used a liberal amount of frosting to hold them in place.
Decorate the rest of the top of the cake by gluing candies in place. I created a pattern with my candy.
Isn’t that adorable? There is no way that I could create such a professional looking cake without the aid of prepared items. I had several people ask me where I got the cake. I was proud to say that I created it myself! I did share the secret to creating it.
This cake can easily be adapted using other cookies or candies. You could even get two sizes of cakes and layer. How would you decorate your cake?
