Christmas Baking Workshop @ At 19 Culinary Studio ❤

Merry Belated Christmas guys! Today I would like to share with you guys my Christmas Baking Workshop with The Butterfly Project at At 19 Culinary Studio. (:


This will be my first time baking gingerbread with the bloggers. I am so excited! :D Miss Suraya briefed us on how to mix the ingredients of the gingerbread.


 All of the bloggers were excited on making their own gingerbread including me! :D Here's some of the ingredients that we had to prepare before we started to bake our gingerbread.

 Unsalted Butter, Vanilla Essence, Plain Flour, Brown Sugar, Egg and Ground Ginger 

You have to prepare 175g of chilled and diced unsalted butter, 175g of brown sugar, a medium size grade A egg, 2 tablespoon of Black Treacle, 350g of plain flour, 1 teaspoon of ground ginger, 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence and 1 teaspoon of baking soda / bicarbonate soda which is for crispy texture of gingerbread. 

 Black Treacle

Remember to mix the plain flour, bicrbonate soda, ginger and diced butter till resemble fine breadcrumbs.



 Add sugar, egg, black treacle and form a dough.



 Next, turn out on to a floured surface and knead until smooth. Shape into a ball and roll out the dough thinly.


Cut out using shaped cutters provided such as Xmas tree, icecream and etc. :D


The doughs are ready for baking! :D Remember to preheat the oven to 180 degree and let it bake for 12 - 15 minutes or till the doughs are pale-golden. (;

A photo of yours truly with the cookies. (:

The cookies in pale-golden colour.

The cookies are now ready for decoration. To make royal icing, beat egg white with lemon juice and glycerin, gently add in icing sugar, batch by batch till you get a soft thick paste.
   
 Royal icing are ready to use.

The cookies had to be cool down for few minutes to prevent condensation on the bottom of the cookies. This is too ensure that the cookies do not turn soft easily and I am pretty sure that you will not like to eat soft cookies right?

With Arpita and I.

Decorate your gingerbread with royal icing and let it set. Or else the icing will melt. 

Here's my creation. 

Other bloggers are so creative to decorate their cookies. So pretty! :D


Last but not least, a selfie with my gingerbread man! :D


Thank you At 19 Culinary Studio and The Butterfly Project for having us! Since I have the recipe with me, I can't wait to try this myself at home for my friends. Till then, Merry Belated Christmas and Happy New Year 2015!
