A Fun Day Making Gingerbread!

Making Gingerbread!

So, our friend Eve from the Blog "The Full Teaspoon Club" came to visit us at home and we got the chance of making Gingerbread with an experienced backer. We had so much fun making the gingerbread and decorating it, and the recipe we got from Eve to make orange flavored gingerbread was delicious. 

We also got to learn some tricks to make the most out of our gingerbread like making a hole when they are still warm to make little Christmas decorations afterwards. 

Andy was with us too and she made us laugh a lot with her stories and jokes about little chickens.  

We also learned how to make our own decoration tools from baking paper so you don't have to spend tons of money in decoration stuff. This was a great experience for us. The third thing we learned was to make the icing for the decoration using Lemon or Lime; I have always used water or milk but using Lemon makes the icing sugar taste very good.  

So make sure to visit Eves Blog to get more tips like this ones and to find out the wonderful and delicious food she makes all the time.

Here is the video:

Hyvää Itsenäisyyspäivä

 Have a nice and Happy Independence Day! Like Finnish do, you can enjoy by watching the Castle Ball or Linnanjuhat. Light some blue candles and enjoy your time with family or friends.  
Happy Independence day Finland!

Finland Celebrates their independence on December 6th. the date when they got their independence form the Russian Republic. The declaration of independence was written on 4.12.1917 and then accepted by government at 6.12.1917 with 100 to 88 votes. 

On January 1918 Finland got accepted their independence by most of the European countries, first ones being Sweden and France at 4th of January and Germany at 6th, Great Britain and United States didn’t accept the independence before the WWI had ended, more than a year later.

The date of December 6
th has only been celebrated since 1919, when at first it was only a holiday for offices, schools and jury; then in 1929 it became a general holiday like we know it today. The biggest celebration happens at the Presidential Castle commonly known as Linnanjuhlat where more than 2000 Finnish celebrities and important people are invited to have dinner with the President. The party is every year broadcasted by Finnish Television YLE and most of Finns like to watch it at home.

We are already getting ready with glögi and food to watch the show on TV and you? 
Happy Holidays!
