No, I'm not getting an early jump on Christmas! The gingerbread I baked were made out of Shrinky Dink, and while they didn't smell as yummy as the real thing, I think they turned out just as cute.
To start, I purchased Shrinky Dink for Inkjet printers and cut the gingerbread boy and girl images from Kate's Kitchen at 3.5" using the Imagine. Sorry, I didn't get a picture of them before I shrank them.
These were baked in the toaster oven set at 375 degrees. I guess my oven doesn't heat evenly though, because every batch turned out like this, with some being longer and more stretched out than others, depending on where they were on the pan.
My grandson was here while I worked on some of these and he got the biggest kick out of watching them shrink. He asked me if it was magic! I'm planning some fun Shrinky Dink projects that we can do together.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
