During the festive season, these jewels of Broad Street are on display as one of twenty five local Advent Windows.

Made to a hard, yet tasty, construction gingerbread recipe incorporating butter, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, golden syrup, vanilla extract and, of course, ginger.

Various kitchen-handy tools have been used in the crafting.

Apart from pastry cutters, shapes and patterns have been formed with a fork, a cheese knife, an assortment of piping nozzles and the lid from a golden syrup tin.

Fox’s Glacier Fruits have made the glorious gemstones. (Other boiled sweets are available, but in my view not as clear, bright and beautiful.)
