This Christmas is different from the many “Christmases” we celebrated in the past years. The pandemic has made it difficult for most of us to go around, but it still does not get in the way of the spirit of gift-giving.
It’s that time of the year when we all get busy searching for Christmas presents. This year, I will be featuring some of my favorites on the page.
MY LOVE FOR COOKIES NEVER ENDS…
We all know how I love coloring and decorating things, so this DIY Cookie Kit comes on my top list of favorite presents to give. I would love to share that stress-relieving feeling of just unleashing my inner artist. It’s a perfect present for kids and kids-at-heart. I don’t have kids, but we definitely enjoyed decorating these cute Christmas-Themed Cookies which we ate days after! It ‘s something that last really long. They were just too pretty to eat. I was saving Santa and Rudolph to eat last. The moment I sat on that chair, prepared my work station, and started piping my cookies, I remembered telling everyone, “I just can’t
adult right now.”
Cookie Project MNL have come up with two variations of their cookie base. The Butter version is the usual inclusion in the normal kits, but this Christmas, they have Gingerbread cookies! I love how festive these are. (Don’t touch my Gingerbread Guy and Rudolph!)
DIY GINGERBREAD HOUSE
Aside from the usual Sugar Butter Cookies and Gingerbread Cookies which totally smells a lot like Christmas mornings, Cookie Project MNL now offers a DIY Gingerbread House Kit! I have always wanted to make a Gingerbread House with a tiny Gingerbread Man living on it so I was really ecstatic upon receiving the boxes.
The kits come with a 10×10 display board, 6 pieces large gingerbread house parts, 4 pieces sugar cookies, 4 pieces ginger bread cookies, 2 large white Royal Icing piping bags, 1 Soft Icing (any color), 8 kinds of colorful sweets and candies to decorate your gingerbread house, 2 Christmas Headbands (to take you back to your happy childhood, OR FOR THE KIDS), 2 Christmas Shades/Glasses (please take a selfie with these and your Gingerbread House and tag us #cookieprojectmnl and #wanderbitesbybobbie), a napkin, a spoon, a bamboo pick, Christmas stickers, and tags.
Here’s the Gingerbread House I built which I chose to set-up on my thick wooden board. My mom literally asked me what I was doing the whole time. It was my tiny little Christmas project and I was planning to have it around until New Year’s. Apparently, we had to move it to the board from the box as I realized I needed my wood chunk. It didn’t get to the board, as we started nibbling on the parts piece by piece. Hey, they go really well with tea! Just scrape off that extra sugar, or if you don’t mind getting sugar rush for a bit, just bite it off as you please. No judging.
If you enjoyed my Gingerbread experience, it’s time to give it a try and make your house smell like cinnamon, and nutmeg, and butter, and… Christmas! Cookie Project MNL offers different designs and variations on their page. Kids will definitely enjoy this fun activity (and adults with 5-year old hearts like me). *wink wink*
