The gingerbread cake will be for gifts, along with jars of homemade jam. The gingerbread cookies will be made in two shapes: houses and donkeys. The gingerbread houses will be decorated as Victorian houses, and the donkeys will be decorated like Italian donkeys (with red saddle and blue bow around neck). The other cookies will be for the family. There is a lot of advance preparation, and chilling of the dough, so I'd better get started!
