One Hundred and Ninety One: Gingerbread cookies!

I love to make gingerbread cookies, I usually do them for special occasions, and starting a new job felt good enough occasion to do so.

In the past I've taken them along to a Women in Games conference back when I was attending university and then also when at GameCity in 2009. As well as that they're something I always make at Christmas time now, I've done so for the last two years and they always go down well.

However they're not normal gingerbread cookies as you can see above, they're videogame shaped gingerbread cookies! The easiest things to make are of course Pac-man, Tetriminos and Tri-Forces, however I also made some Darwinian's, Meeples, a Prince, even some asteroids ships with asteroids. It's always loads of fun to make them, although it is time consuming to make something so specific or detailed at times.
