Did you know that the production of honey dough dates back to the Middle Ages? There were even gingerbread guilds in Europe and gingerbread was a valuable sweet that was often a Christmas gift underneath the Christmas tree. Today, baking gingerbread is one of the most popular traditions in many families. They brighten up the home – every member of the family has fun cutting them out and decorating them. In addition, it’s one of the cakes that we simply can’t imagine Christmas without.
