Princess 5th Birthday Goodies Bag

Another all night long baking of gingerbread man. This time I only baked 1 portion of the recipe. My girl birthday is in Dec but her daddy said he doesn't want her to feel left out. Most of her classmates give away goodies bag during their birthday and daddy want her to feel special too. So we decided to bake our own gingerbread man and pack it with other handy items inside the goodies bag. Well mommy need to prepare all though daddy just suggest (so easy huh .... )

She brought 31 goodies bag for her teachers & friends

Year End Class Party

The kitchen was still busy though posting not updated. In fact lots of mid night and wee hours baking going on. Here's last Thursday fresh from the oven update for my son class year end Party and he has requested for an individual pack Gingerbread man for everyone in class.

Here's my girl master piece, really appreciate her help.

Me taking care on the rest of the icing, WIP - work in progress still ....

My son got this great idea by having the the gingerbread man holding a candy stick. Don't they look nice with the candy stick ? He brought 36 gingerbread boys & girls to school on Thursday morning.
At the same time, I made ham & cheese sandwich, Egg Mayo Sandwich as well. Last but not least some cocktail hot dog that was not on the picture.
