How to decorate gingerbread on Halloween?
Let's start with the simplest version - ginger heads, which can be decorated with aysing, liquorice or chocolate, as well as berry jam, or red food gel, designed to mimic the blood.
- butter - 135 g;
- granulated sugar - 85 g;
- egg yolk - 1 piece;
- flour - 365 g;
- soda - 1 teaspoon;
- ginger dried - 2 tsp.
- corn syrup - 45 ml;
- water 115 ml;
- sugar eyes, berry jam, licorice - for decoration.
Mix the dry ingredients of the dish separately from the liquids, and then connect the two masses together. The resulting ginger dough should be cooled half an hour before rolling. Roll the dough to half a centimeter thick cut into dots and make a notch in them using the flat side of the handle or pencil.
Fill the cavities with berry jam.
A strip of licorice thinly cut and make from it an inverted smile, which should be fixed on the cookie.
Bake gingerbread cookies for 10-12 minutes at 190 degrees. In the cavity with jam, put sugar eyes (they can be replaced with mint dragees with dots-pupils of chocolate).

Before decorating gingerbread with an aysing, carved in the form of little men delicacies should cool down after baking in the oven, otherwise glaze will flow. In the meantime, fill the confectioner's bag with sugar glaze and put a nozzle on it with the smallest hole.
Start with the head of a gingerbread man, sketching the base contours of the skull as neat as you can.
Further draw a vertical line and, perpendicular to it, horizontal. They will become the backbone and skeleton of the skeleton.
In order not to suffer with detail, the arms and legs can be designated with one bone, and the phalanx of the fingers - with small dots.
While we were working with the body, the contour of the skull has already frozen, and we can finish the painted gingerbread on Halloween, filling it with an even layer of glaze.
