I found I had taken a picture of the cutters I bought in Canada;
with an example of how the biscuits could be decorated. They appear to have piped the icing on with a steady hand. We just plastered it onto the biscuits (these are some of the spares, plus a few off-cuts for taste-testing)
with the back of a teaspoon. Hence the rustic, home-made appearance of ours, compared the the precision piping of the example! Enough of the gingerbread now. Until next time at any rate.
