Even though I may not be a huge fan of eating gingerbread, I do appreciate seeing all of the cook gingerbread creations that people make this time of year. I have posted a lot of cool gingerbread creations recently ranging from a gingerbread TARDIS and K9 to a gingerbread Millennium Falcon. Well, now we have a gingerbread creation from the Star Trek universe!
The Food Replicator blog has posted about this awesome gingerbread Star Trek communicator that they made recently. You can find links to the recipe and stuff they used over on their post, but here are some of the details for how it was made and a picture of the completed TOS communicator!
I cut out the pattern pieces on thick card paper and then used that to cut out the cookie pieces. I froze the dough before cooking as this helps it keep its shape.
I used royal icing (1 egg white, add icing sugar until the desired consistency is reached) for all decorations, as well as for gluing the pieces together.
Toothpicks and scrunched up pieces of plastic wrap are both very useful to use as prop-ups while waiting for the royal icing to dry when gluing the pieces together.
