Gingerbread Tree

See my other blog for the story of my first Christmas tree. Yes, this is my first Christmas tree ever, which I won in a raffle today. It seemed only right to stick some edibles on it, so I rustled up and decorated some gingerbread.

I hate using silver dragées with a passion. They're so fiddly- but so pretty! At least Dr Oetker makes soft ones now, which don't shatter your teeth quite like the ones I was used to as a child. This was also my first time using royal icing- I think I managed a smooth enough finish.
