I am always on the lookout for unique ways to present my gifts, and thought this was fun!

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.
