    usually just your basic royal icing with food colouring (pastes are awesome).

    Looks like we were both thinking about Ginger type cookies last night. My son actually made a patch of ginger snaps- Friday night is his pick for a sweet to usually make with me but lately he has been doing most of the baking on his own ( measuring, mixing) hasn't got gathering the ingredients down :)

    PS cute little ginger bread.
