Keep Out Sign

Roll out your gingerbread dough and cut out a cross, leaving the edges a little jagged.  Since I am able to put things into my styrofoam base, I put a wire into the dough before I baked it.  If you forget, that’s okay.  Just add the wire to the back of the baked cross using royal icing to attach it.  After it was baked, I added some white icing coloring to give it a weathered look.
