Mmmm gingerbread men! Why not get creative in the kitchen and turn regular gingerbread men into superheroes. We found a recipe from Just Imagine and we thought we would spice up their men and women by making them heroes and heroines. Michelle from SugarSwings inspired us to add a unique twist and design something children will love.
With a little help of our products you can be well on your way creating these hero cookies.
