I heard today that we may have snow coming our way this Friday. Well, it is November, so I won't be surprised but it's so sunny today it seems strange that winter could be coming so soon. I'm sure it won't be more than a few flurries, but the prediction made me think of the new snowflake gingerbread cookies that we'll be decorating soon. I love the contrast of the dark and spicy gingerbread with the white royal sweet icing topped with sugars. We've been baking gingerbread boys for a few years now, this year we are adding both the snowflakes and cute cottages. The aroma in the bakery is the very best this time of year with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, orange and chocolate! Yum.
