Happy New Year, Everybody!

Well, my friends, even my horoscope warned me that 2016 would be bumpier than a ride on 'Space Mountain.' 
 Regardless, I'm looking forward to the new year, while Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" plays in my head.

It's been a while since my last gingerbread piece. This 'tree' was very simple. Made by baking gingerbread cookie dough in small brioche molds. Then, stacked and glued together with royal icing. So there's that.

Btw, have you guys set New Year's  resolutions yet?  I have, for once.

At the top of my list you'll find: "Avoid chocolate."
Wait. That should read: "Avoid CHECKLISTS." You know, because checklists are stupid, and only lead to breaking said resolutions. Phew.

Best wishes to you my friends, for a happy and healthy 2017! 💖
