Gingerbread Bride And Groom


It is biscuit week on GBBO so I decided to make a gingerbread bride and groom. If you haven't heard, this weekend the wedding of the year taking place. Yes my little sister is marrying the love of her life and what better way to celebrate than make her in gingerbread.

Instead of my no egg gingerbread recipe, I went for this one from BBC Good Food. Whilst my husband really liked the taste, it is quite soft so not great for 3D structures! But my wedding cake stood tall even if a more crunchy recipe would have been easier.

To make the gingerbread you will need:

350g plain flour
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
2tsp ground ginger
1tsp ground cinnamon
4oz butter
6oz sugar
1 egg
4tbsp golden syrup

To decorate:

icing pens and silver balls

Pre heat the oven to 180C

Mix all the gingerbread ingredients together to form a dough and place in the fridge to harden for 10 mins.

Roll the gingerbread quite thin as it will expand.

Cut out the shapes you choose. I made a template for the wedding cake out of card.

Cook until golden brown.

I found that the gap in the wedding cake template closed so while cooling cut the slots back in.

When cool, decorate with icing pens.

So all that is left is for me to wish my sister a great week. We can't wait to see you on Saturday and you can eat yourself and your new husband if you wish!
