Place cards! Instead of having post-its telling people where to sit, I went with edible place cards. Made out of gingerbread of course!!
I used the same gingerbread dough as the house, and used an oval crinkle edged cutter.
Using thinned royal icing that I put into a squeeze bottle, I piped along the edge of the cookie.
I then flooded the inside area and let it dry completely.
To make things easier on myself, I used already made icing decorations that you can find in any store.
I attached the decorations with a dab of royal icing, and then added my guest’s name with an edible Foodwriter pen.
I finished the place card cookie with dots of royal icing around the outside of the flooded area.
I think it added a nice touch, and a lot of the guests actually placed it on their houses.
These are great to do even for your holiday dinner. I hope you give it a try.
Check out the decorated houses!
