It wouldn't be Christmas without a pinch of ginger. We've compiled our finest gingerbread cakes, biscuits and cocktails to give your Christmas some spice.
Every Christmas home needs a tin full of biscuits, a sweet centrepiece and a decoration or two. So this year why not go beyond biscuits and take your gingerbread to the next level. Get baking cakes, mixing cocktails and rolling roulades full of zingy ginger and seasonal spices.
Capture a taste of the season in our gingerbread Bellini and treat your friends to a festive version of the classic Prosecco cocktail. If you want to bottle that unmistakable warmth to make a mixer, try our gingerbread syrup. It's a fun homemade gift and is just as good in drinks as it is on desserts.
The image of a gingerbread house immediately conjures up Christmas cheer. Get the whole family involved with decorating the house, piping icing and creating a wintry scene. Our simple gingerbread house is the perfect way to get your kitchen ready for Christmas. You can even try a cottage version or our mini gingerbread houses so everyone can put their own stamp on their bake.
Why not pair crisp ginger biscuits with a super soft and squidgy spiced cake? Our gingerbread cake with caramel biscuit icing is a very special showstopper, complete with coconut 'snow' and creamy icing. Or, you could try this sticky, honeyed Polish gingerbread cake with plum jam and chocolate.
Edible tree decorations, wreaths, advent calendars and place names are all ways to put your own personal touch into your festive treats. Try stringing up our gingerbread bunting and munch them over the festive season. You can also turn your biscuits into an edible Christmas wreath to keep for yourself or give as a homemade gift.
Give this classic Christmas bake a revamp with festive spices. Packed full of ginger, cinnamon, treacle and buttercream icing, this Bûche de Noël deserves pride of place on your festive table.
If you're looking for a party-friendly traybake that can be sliced and plated up easily, our chocolate gingerbread brownie bars are a luxurious option. This flourless sponge is rich and light in equal measure and the fudgy icing is hard to resist.
