Gingerbread Takes Center Stage on Hallmark's Christmas Cookie Matchup This Week
On the second episode of Hallmark Drama's Christmas Cookie Matchup the bakers and their When Calls the Heart baking assistants are taking on the quintessential Christmas treat, gingerbread.
This is a great episode to watch and take notes before you make your holiday creations this year. As the bakers take on the challenges, experts Emily Hutchinson and Chadwick Boyd are there with tips and advice. As the judges warn, when it comes to gingerbread construction, size, thickness, and weight play important roles in the success of each creation. Will the bakers adhere to their warnings? Each of the bakers has a very different concept for their gingerbread men and women and for a full winter scene. You can pick up all kinds of techniques from tiny fondant packages to how to make stained glassed windows on your gingerbread house. We also learn more about the backgrounds of each of these bakers as well, as they draw on their own Christmas memories for inspiration for their creations. If you need more inspiration check out these adorable gingerbread reindeer cookies.
If you watched last week's premiere episode, and we hope you did, then you saw the contestants and Hallmark stars battle it out over drop cookies and sugar cookies. Now, all of the recipes for both challenges are up on the show's page on Hallmark Drama's website. Check it out here.
