Holiday Special: Bake Your Dream Man



We all know a good man is hard to come by. So what’s a girl to do when she’s left solo under the mistletoe? Many of us turn to one of two things: cats or chocolate. But I say no! not this year! Instead, let’s try a new fallback…like gingerbread!

Making your dream (gingerbread) man is simple. Mix up the ingredients, bake him for an hour at 350-degrees…and voila, he’s yours! Dress him in your favorite frosted attire (he can’t say no) or go ahead and eat him right up (literally) under the mistletoe. If all else fails, at least you can break his legs. It’s like gingerbread voodoo… But don’t feel too bad. He deserves it for all those unnecessary calories!

Better yet? Bake a dozen or so and invite your girlfriends over for a wine and design night… I promise, it’s sure to be a good time.

What are the stats of your dream guy?

    My boyfriend is definitely my dream man :) He’s exremely polite and respectful but has enough edge to keep me interested. He’s extremely athletic (#2 doubles tennis player in the nation) almost too intelligent 😉 He’s so handsome AND he’s foreign and has an accent. Try not to drool ladies 😉 haha

    Does anyone know what they mean for the first step, when they are talking about the pudding- the way that im reading it says 2 different things…is this a already prepared pudding mixture or just a straight dry mixture ?
