They'd be great for a celebration tea party, perhaps you could make one for the 'World's No 1 Dad' for Father's Day, or just to mark an achievement or milestone.
As well as your basic gingerbread (or other cookie) recipe, you will need:
A round cutter
Decorations - we used Silver Spoon orange chocolate buttons and Dr Oetker Soft Gold Pearls
1. Make your cookie recipe and cut out circles. We also used a smaller cutter to make a mark inside which helps with decorating later. Punch a hole through with your straw to thread your ribbon through later.
2. Once your cookies have baked and cooled you can begin decorating. I found the simplest way was to put my orange drops into a paper piping bag, stand it upright in a cup and then melt in the microwave.
Snip off the end of your bag and begin writing - Tip: it helps if you don't have a shaky-hand-hangover for this part!
3. Place dots at intervals around the edge and stick on your gold pearls.
4. Once your decorations have set, thread through your ribbon and present to your winners. National Anthems and podiums are optional.
