Gingerbread Mummies for Halloween

After the success of my Surprise Inside Mummy Cupcakes, I decided to make some Gingerbread Mummies. These are great to get the children decorating and if you haven't got the time to bake your own gingerbread you can just buy them from the supermarket. I used a standard gingerbread recipe from Baking Mad and decorated them with mini smartie eyes.

Gingerbread Mummies

  • 50g Muscavado sugar
  • 100g butter
  • 5tbsp golden syrup
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1/2tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2tsp ground ginger

  • For The  Decoration 

  • Icing Sugar
  • a few drops of water
  • mini smarties
  1. Mix all the gingerbread ingredients together, making sure that the muscavado sugar is not in clumps.
  2. Place in the fridge for 20 mins to harden.
  3. Roll out the gingerbread and cut out the gingerbread men shapes.
  4. Place on baking parchment and cook at 180C until golden brown.
  5. Allow to cool and mix together some icing sugar with water so a thick icing is formed. Place into a piping bag with a small round nozzle.
  6. Pipe bandages on the arms and legs and then the rest of the gingerbread mummy.
  7. Finish by adding mini smarties eyes and a small blog of icing in the middle. 
Perfect for a Halloween party or an activity this half term.
