Notes
Gingerbread Glaze Icing 1 cup powdered sugar 1 teaspoon corn syrup ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 1 tablespoon molasses 1 teaspoon vanilla 3 tablespoons water Mix all ingredients together and adjust consisteny needed by adding more water or powdered sugar. Color icing black for eyes and mouth and red for the heart. Cream or white for the rick rack trim. I already had royal icing made in the colors I needed but I used the glaze to ice the brown gingerbread flavor on the scones. I just added a couple drops of a tan color to the glaze.
