It’s beginning to taste a lot like Christmas…

Ginger may not have been the best spice girl (sorry, Geri) but it definitely is the best spice of the festive season. If we could eat it all year round we would, but there’s something so special about hoeing into a gingerbread biscuit (or ten) at Christmas time. Get your fix from these Brissy hotspots.

GINGERBREAD CHRISTMAS TREE | DELLO MANO

Why bother with a proper Christmas tree when you can have this epic gingerbread tree take centre stage in your home? These soft bickies are handmade and stacked high with a layer of royal icing and sprinkles of dried raspberry. It’s almost too pretty to eat. Almost…

GINGERBREAD PANCAKES | HUSKK

That’s right, nothing is sacred from the mouth-watering wrath of gingerbread. Huskk knows that breakfast shouldn’t be excluded from the Christmas spirit, offering gingerbread pancakes on their all-day menu complete with whey butterscotch sauce and bunya nut crumble.

CHRISTMAS STAR DOUGHNUT | NODO

Spice up your December with a few of Nodo’s Christmas goodies! These golden pumpkin doughnuts are topped with chai spiced white chocolate and a gingerbread star, and are also gluten free! You can order a few of your own here.

MERRY AND BRIGHT GINGERBREAD TREE | PASSIONTREE VELVET

Did somebody say fifteen layers of gingery goodness? Passiontree Velvet have a delicious range of Christmas treats on offer – but we believe this tree takes the cake. Spiced gingerbread cookies coated with icing and sprinkles are stacked sky-high to create something that needs to be seen (and tasted) to be believed!

GINGER BISCUITS | JOCELYN’S PROVISIONS

Enjoy a few bite-sized gingerbread treats from the talented team at Jocelyn’s Provisions. With the option of soft ginger stars or gingerbread trees, these are perfect additions to Christmas stockings, hampers, or sole consumption while binging questionable Christmas flicks.

Hoping and praying none of these gingerbread men grow legs and run away…
