Still home - with a buddy today (the guy is sick too) - and I spent the day googling gingerbread!
We bought this box of lovely gingerbread stars at Skate in the City and they are just delicious!
It's soft but firm and not too spicy but just perfect - so now I'm on the hunt for my own perfect recipe! I want something soft like this, and also something that will hold a nice shape when baked - rather than puffing/spreading in the oven.
I've started collecting recipes and other gingerbready inspiration on my gingerbread board over at Pinterest (natch) and can't wait to start trying some of the recipes I've found so far.
I'd love any recommendations, so if you have a favourite perfect gingerbread recipe please let me know so I can give it a go too! =)
