A Halal Kitchen: Baking and Saving Ramadan Gingerbread Men

Wednesday, 8 September 2010

In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

Every Ramadan I bake gingerbread men as part of my 'thankfulness' towards other human beans. It's not saving lives as such; fundraising through them generates enough ker-ching for my orphanage plans, and people genuinely like receiving them. It's my edible good deed. And this is how I makes'em.

 
Even though I'm fasting from all things scrumptious, the pungent gingery fragrance tells me they're just right. The dough is rolled out and designated to recipients like angels to a soul.

 
Baked through, the gingerbread men are semi-nude and need modesty

 
I should have rethought the colour scheme. Kufis made from lime green royal icing ain't that hot.

*Insert dialogue from Bollywood movie Sholay (SUUIICIIIDE!)
 
See..? More like cerulean halos than manly kufis. Bleurgh. Oh well.
 
Batch three done... Onto wrapping, labelling and posting out to speshul peepul.
