Fun packaging idea

I am always on the lookout for unique ways to present my gifts, and thought this was fun! I have given cookies in a gingerbread bowl before, and am delighted to have another gingerbread idea in my repertoire; I'm thinking if one were ambitious, one could also make little mini gingerbread houses to present gift cards, jewelry, etc in....

The ultimate edible gift wrap!

Our gingerbread gift boxes are simply made of square cookies glued together with Royal Icing. It’s hard to make these very big, so the boxes are best for small gifts – and are a wonderful decorative and edible gift on their own. Or, use them to serve treats on the coffee table at Christmas.

Materials and Tools

Step 1

Enlarge the templates on a photocopier, but we recommend making these boxes no larger than 6” square. Otherwise, they’ll be too fragile.

Step 2

Cut the gingerbread squares using the templates. Bake cookies.

Step 3

"Glue" together and hide edges using Royal Icing 

Here is the gingerbread bowl :
