About this Bake

Gingerbread biscuits shaped as a map of Denmark, Kagem├Žnd, hot dogs (a favourite in Denmark), The Little Mermaid, lighthouse, Tivoli poster, Queen's Guard, layer cake and royal Copenhagen pottery pattern. Royal icing is medium consistency. Some details are painted on with vodka and food colouring.

Top tip

Getting the consistency of your royal icing right is the most important thing. A little time spent getting it to the right thickness will avoid any problems while you are icing.
