make your own......wait for it.......Gingerbread bunting

Gingerbread bunting recipe





These tasty spiced gingerbread men make a fantastically festive, edible Christmas decoration - string up and eat within two weeks

Ingredients

For the gingerbread

  • 175g dark muscovado sugar, plus a little extra for the reindeer
  • 85g golden syrup
  • 100g butter
  • 350g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

To decorate

  • 600g fondant icing sugar
  • brown and black food colouring
  • sweets and sprinkles (we used orange jelly beans, white chocolate drops, edible red balls and edible silver balls)
  • edible white or silver glitter

You'll also need

  • gingerbread man cutter
  • gingerbread lady cutter
  • a straw
  • disposable piping bags
  • small piping nozzle
  • cocktail sticks
  • ribbon or string, to tie together

Method

  1. Put the sugar, syrup, butter and a pinch of salt into a saucepan. Bubble for 1-2 mins, mixing to combine. Set aside to cool a little. Put the flour, bicarbonate of soda and spices in a bowl, add the warm syrup mixture and the egg, and stir to combine (it will feel a little soft now, but will firm up once chilled). Cover the bowl with cling film and chill for 30 mins. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line 2 baking trays with parchment.
  2. Dust your work surface with a little flour, then roll out the dough to the thickness of a £1 coin. Cut out as many men and ladies as you can – you should be able to get about 16 by re-rolling the dough. Place on the trays, then bake for 10-12 mins until slightly risen and golden brown. While they are still warm, push a straw through the top of the gingerbread ladies, and just above where the legs meet on the gingerbread men, to make a hole for stringing up. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. To decorate your snowmen, divide the icing sugar evenly between 2 bowls. Add enough water, a dribble at a time, until you have a very thick but pipeable icing. Add a few drops of brown food colouring to one bowl of icing brown for the reindeer and mix until evenly coloured. Spoon 2 tbsp of the brown icing into another bowl, then colour black using the black food colouring.
  4. Transfer roughly half the white icing to a piping bag fitted with a fine nozzle. Pipe the outline of a snowman onto the gingerbread lady biscuits, piping a little circle around the hole at the top too. Leave to set for 5 mins. Squeeze any leftover icing back into the bowl with the remaining white icing and add a little more water, a splash at a time, until runny but still fairly thick. Transfer back to the piping bag. When the snowman outlines are dry to the touch, pipe enough icing onto the biscuits to flood the surface. Tease the icing into all corners using a cocktail stick.
  5. Use half an orange jelly bean for the snowman’s nose and silver balls for the buttons. Transfer the brown and black icings to piping bags fitted with small nozzles (or snip off the corner of a sandwich bag), and pipe on brown twigs for arms and black dots as coal for eyes and a mouth. Finally, sprinkle the base of each snowman with a little edible glitter. Leave to dry for at least 2 hrs.
  6. To decorate your reindeer, draw a reindeer outline on each gingerbread man biscuit using the brown icing (just as you did with the snowmen) – turn them upside down first so you can use the legs as the reindeer’s antlers. Leave to dry while you loosen the brown icing, as before.
  7. Fill each reindeer with the runnier brown icing, being careful not to make the antlers too thick. Tease into the spaces using a cocktail stick. Sprinkle each antler with brown sugar and flick off any excess with the cocktail stick. Stick a red ball or Smartie on each biscuit for a nose, and 2 white chocolate chips for eyes. Use a little black icing to draw a pupil on each eye. Leave to dry for at least 2 hrs.
  8. When the biscuits are completely dry, thread and tie through a piece of string and hang. Eat the biscuits within 2 weeks.

Amazing gift ideas from our friends


This gorgeous one of a kind hand crocheted tote bag makes the ideal carry around tote your sure to love! The contrasting two tone color combo of this tote bag makes it very eye catching and gives a classic look to it as well. The outside of the bag also has lots of texture and is done in an interlocking stitch pattern that gives the bag a 3D effect verses a smooth outside like most ordinary tote bags. It also includes a cute buckle/ belt design around the top portion of the tote to add that something extra ordinary to this bag. Dark blue fabric liner inside. Matching front and back. This bag has lots of room as it is a size large tote. Super strong and durable handles makes this bag a great carry around tote. This tote was made with durability in mind, so this is also a worry- free tote! You can use it for books, magazines, yarn, or any other accessories. Makes a great gift idea as well for any age, and easy to care for.

Handmade Chunky Beaded Necklace

I really enjoyed making this piece, I was brave withe colours as i am a typical black and silver girl. I popped this up on Facebook to gather opinions and i was pleased everyone loved it so I have popped it in my Etsy shop. This piece is looking for a new home!! I hope you like it. 

It's a very versatile piece that would look great to add a statement focus to an outfit like a little black dress but equally looks great with denims.

It also has a decent length extender chain so you can vary the length depending on your outfit that day

This is a complete OOAK (one of a kind) I never replicate any of my designs so you will have a one off statement piece.

Made in a smoke and pet free home

*If you are not in the UK please check to see if your country allows jewellery to be imoprted as come countries have restrictions** This is the buyers responsibility

Handmade sleeping mask, lightweight cotton, Sleeping Aid, Dark Room, Peaceful Night Sleep, Good night Sleep, Fibromyalgia Sleep Mask

https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/235206405/handmade-sleeping-mask-lightweight?ref=shop_home_active_1


This is a handmade lightweight cotton sleeping mask.

Designed to be lightweight as some masks can be heavy. I would not suggest this for people working nightshift OR for travelling these require a heavy sleeping mask to block out daylight.

This is perfect for people with Fibromyalgia or CPD as it is essential to block out light sources from the room. This could be an alarm clock, standby button on the T.V, mobile phone charger etc...

The sleeping masks has a small elasticated band to hold it in place.

Why you should block out light before and during sleep

http://sleepfoundation.org/sleep-news/lights-out-good-nights-sleep

Exposure to light stimulates a nerve pathway from the eye to parts of the brain that control hormones, body temperature and other functions that play a role in making us feel sleepy or wide-awake.

Too much light, right before bedtime may prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep. In fact, one study recently found that exposure to unnatural light cycles may have real consequences for our health including increased risk for depression. Regulating exposure to light is an effective way to keep circadian rhythms in check.

During the day, find time for sunlight, or purchase a light-box or light visor to supplement your exposure to light. 
At night, keep your sleep environment dark. Light-blocking curtains, drapes or an eye mask can also help, and if you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night, avoid as much light as possible by using a low illumination night light. For shift workers , who need get their zzz’s during the day wearing dark glasses to block out the sunlight on the way home from work is another way to limit light before bedtime. Some research indicates that the body may never fully adapt to shift work, especially for those who switch to a normal weekend sleep schedule. Establish a routine for sleep to avoid dozing with the television or lights on. 
Before bedtime, limit television viewing and computer use, especially in the bedroom, as they hinder quality sleep. A good way to start relaxation before sleep is to lay in bed with a sleep mask on and listen to music
