Sugary Snowflake Gingerbread Squares

Posted on November 27, 2012
Hi, Everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season and having fun decorating, Christmas shopping, cooking and baking seasonal recipes, spending time with friends and family, continuing beloved holiday traditions and making some new memories! I love that we have a desire to make everything extra special at Christmas time, and wish we stuck to it all year round! It’s the thoughtful little details that make things more special, and I have a really cute and easy way for you to Christmasify (if that’s even a word!) any plain cake and turn it into a Christmas dessert!
 ,

Here are my Sugary Snowflake Gingerbread Squares! I made a gingerbread cake (using a box mix – that’s how easy this can be if you need something really fast!) and simply stenciled snowflakes onto it using some powdered sugar! If you don’t have a stencil, or it’s not the right size, you can make one like I did! You can either do this by using a snowflake craft punch (I have a Martha Stewart one that works great!) or you can just print out a snowflake shape and cut it out and use that as your stencil. Place your stencil where you want it and sprinkle the confectioners’ sugar on top, then remove the stencil carefully. You could also add some edible glitter to the confectioners’ sugar to make the snowflakes shimmery!

Happy Baking, Everyone!

    I love gingerbread but find the cookies hard – this is a perfect solution for me. Soft and yummy!
